An Athletes Guide to Christmas Gifts

by Liza – Monday, 10. December 2018

The holiday season is filled with some of the most beautiful things: Christmas lights, baking cookies and spending time with your loved ones. But for some of us, it may also be quite a stressful time, trying to find a fitting present for everyone and running errands to get all of those. Here are some suggestions to what you can get for you and your sportive friends, or anyone you’re trying to convince to join a cycling class. They definitely won’t have any excuse anymore now!

Blackbox by Blackroll

This might just be heaven on earth for that one friend who is always sore. The set consists of 4 different foam rollers, and an instruction DVD for training and recovery sessions. No matter what muscle is sore, whether it’s the back, the quad, or the middle of your foot, you’ll definitely get it with one of these rolls.
