This year we’ve made quite the effort to get back in shape.  Truth be told, there have been some ebbs and flows, but for the most part we’re pretty excited with the progress being made.  Along the way we’ve picked up some pretty fantastic gear and today’s gift guide features a few of our favorite pieces.

GR1 by GoRuck:  Definitely overkill for a gym bag, the GR1 is tough as nails and serves as a constant reminder that one day we’re going to be in good enough shape to take the plunge and sign up for a GORUCK challenge.

Armour Fleece Storm Pants by Under Armour: When comfort of the utmost importance, these pants are what we turn to.  Perfect for running to and from the gym, they’re warm, cut well, and feature Under Armour’s Storm technology for some water resistance.

Force by Fitbit:  Really want to know how far you push yourself day in and day out?  The Fitbit Force is the way to go.  It may not be the sexiest pick, but all signs point to it being the best overall choice in category.

G-Shock by Casio:  For those who don’t want to go all out with a Fitbit, or something similar, a solid sport watch is essential and you won’t find a better option than a classic Casio G-Shock.  With literally hundreds of options out there, making a pick can be a bit overwhelming.  Our go to is the DW6900-1V.

Full Zip Hoodie by American Giant:  We’ve been on the American Giant train for quite some time, and we don’t see ourselves hopping off anytime soon.  Simply the best hoodie you’ll find.  Bar none.
