Sore knees from opening all the gifts, or perhaps you want to improve performance?

Worn by top athletes such as Josh Bridges, Annie Thorisdottir and Camille LeBlanc-Bazinet, these are designed for optimal performance in the toughest of conditions.
With the classic styling and minimal design, these eye-catching pieces of kit are bound to invoke every Crossfitters inner Froning. As our partner for 2 years now it is the go-to brand for all active people looking to maintain, protect and improve their results.
This Gift will make you jump!

REAL COCONUT WATER
100 % Delicious by Nature
With carefully chosen ingredients from perfectly ripe coconuts, Real Coconut Water is the most delicious coconut water offered by Mother Nature. The coconut water comes from Nakorn Pathom, Ban Preaw and Ampawa – Thailand´s famous region, noted for having the best and sweetest coconuts in the world. They enjoy close relationships to the best farmers and crops. One bottle of their coconut water has more potassium than a banana, and far less calories than a standard soft drink or juice.
Enjoy it pure or with pulp (coconut bits) but also give their new varieties a go: Coco Passion, Coco Matcha, Coco Aloe and Coco Coffee – for the extra push before training!
Following in the Footsteps of Sarah Sigmundsdottir and Mat Fraser
Every workout is a unique challenge with the most diverse requirements, so it is absolutely necessary to have a shoe that supports you in every situation. The Nike Metcon 2, worn by many professional athletes is so versatile, it lets you lift, run, jump and even climb ropes without any losses in performance.
The midsole is firmer in the heel to handle the high demands of weightlifting, and softer and much more flexible in the forefoot to provide cushioned comfort as you run. Linked with the sticky rubber this gives you maximised traction and makes you ready to tackle your next WOD. A perfect Christmas gift for all the Swoosh-lovers out there!
Christmas plans are tight? ZeroPoints is even tighter!
Founded in 2009 the Finish company’s goal is to provide a unique experience and help athletes reach their true potential with true compression.
This scientifically proven ZeroPoint Intense Socks 2S are perfect for high-intensity sport and recovery. Tested and worn by Games athletes such an Jonne Koski, the Zeropoint products give you the strongest medical-grade graduated Compression. We all know how legs can feel heavy and swell up during and after exercise. This is the result of the excess load on venous valves that carry blood to the heart. When using compression products, the valves remain closed and allow better blood flow to the heart.
So take the opportunity and dress up for your winter training!
The FEAST to-go
This little Berlin Start-Up is on a mission to bring you a healthy and conscious meat snack that is perfect as an on the go meal or a valuable post workout protein source. With 15,2g protein per 25g pack, this Wild Jerky from Paleo Jerky will be welcomed (then wolfed down) by the Crossfitters who train hard whatever time of year it is. A decent gamy taste of this 100% wild shot deer gives you an inimitable taste adventure. It is also 100% Paleo: That means no sugar, no gluten, no lactose, no allergenic substances and no soy.
In short, it doesn’t get much healthier than this for a Christmas gift.
Keep the cold outside with the Reebok CrossFit Fleece Pant
Before you’re training, you need to let your body warm up. And since it’s cold outside and winter is coming, it’s time to get cozy. Move through your early routines with fitted comfort from the cuffed hems and waistband draw cord.
Coming to you in Coal Grey or a Collegiate Navy the Reebok CrossFit Fleece Pants will become your best friend in and outside the box. The slit fit of the pants will make sure to move alongside your exercise or if nobody looks, just have a classic rest day on the couch.
So get comfy and warm up in style!
