It’s the last weekend of November so we can officially get excited about Christmas! I’ve pulled together a few Pilates and Fitness inspired gifts for those who are exercise minded (or for yourself if you can’t resist!). The first one is a personal favourite of mine after purchasing it myself earlier this year (and it’s hugely reduced in the sale right now if you hurry!).

Manduka bag

Manduka Yoga/Pilates Bag from Yoga Rebel

The Go Ready tote bag is a brilliant creation for the modern woman on the go! It’s versatility will allow you to go from work to gym/studio with absolute ease! The large main compartment can hold your mat, or you can slide it through the front pouch and keep the inside space for clothes or additional items! There is a padded section to protect your laptop and organisational pockets to keep everything else in check. Two internal mesh storage sections provide the perfect space for wet items or shoes, and if that is still not enough there is also a removable storage bag to keep the smelly kit separate from your clean clothes. Finally, there is a front zipped pocket to easily locate the essentials such as cash, keys and phones, and a thin back section for last minute items.

Ultimately, the Manduka bag sets a new standard in the tote bag and makes it FUN to pack for the gym/yoga/pilates!



Warrior Yoga/Pilates mats from Pilates Mad

The Warrior mat provides excellent cushioning, without slip for both standing and lying exercises. If you need the extra padding it also comes in the extra thickness size of 6mm, which makes even the hardest of floors feel comfortable! Travel sizes are also available for the dedicated yogi or pilate person!



The Smart Shaker from Holland & Barrett

By far the most practical and organised shaker! This shaker has a leak proof lid with built in filter so you never loose it again. The bottom half twists off to reveal an independent shaker, storage compartment, and extra tray for storing protein powder for the next workout.




toes ToeSox from Pilates Mad

ToeSox are the simple answer to studio footwear! Providing extra grip and support to your feet, ToeSox increase your stability and ground awareness. They keep your toes warm in class, as well as travelling to and from the studio or gym! Plus, they come in many gorgeous colours and designs!





Other items you may wish to consider for your fitness filled Christmas lists are new workout clothes, because who does not LOVE new gym clothes! Trainers! Get set to start the running career again. iPods– and new motivating music! Gym membership/class membership– whatever your exercise method of choice, why not get signed up now and commit to the routine?!

Happy Christmas shopping! And happy new fitness routine and commitment for the New Year!
