Being active members in the Crossfit community ourselves we know exactly which gifts are most desired and would be used most.
Whether you’re looking for someone you know or for yourself, we know you’ll find something you like below.
With that in mind we broke down the following list into 3 parts:
- “For Workouts” (These products will be used when training at the gym)
- “For Nutrition” (These products are to compliment a diet for performance or aesthetics)
- “For Fun” (These products don’t fall into either of the above categories but are still a great option as a gift)
Let’s check them out below. No particular order.
The biggest advantage that the 5.11 vest has over competitors is that it feels like an extension of your body. The 5.11 vest is held closer to your body than other vests and the weight is displaced much more evenly.
FACT: “Adding a weighted vest to your frame is a sneaky way of pushing your muscles to grow to support your “new” weight.
But the growing doesn’t stop there. When you use a weighted vest during your workouts, your bones respond to the strain by building more bone mass. This creates denser bones, connective tissue, and an overall stronger musculoskeletal system.”https://yurielkaim.com/weighted-vest-benefits/

As the image states, that is true. The Bear Komplex Carbon Fiber grips were the most used grips at the 2020 Crossfit Games, including both champions Mat Fraser and Tia-Clair Toomey.
This is because not only do these grips protect your hands from ripping when performing high rep gymnastics, but they also provide excellent grip when broken in.
Knee sleeves are the most often used piece of gear at Crossfit and for great reason. They provide compression to your knees, which allows you to lift a bit more weight while also protecting your knees.
They are often used during squats, lunges, box jumps, but some people even use them for running.
Knee sleeves come in 3 different levels of thickness (3mm, 5mm, 7mm). The lower thickness is better for cardio workouts, while the higher thickness is better for heavy lifts.
The heel that comes with a weightlifting shoe dramatically assists in your ability to maintain an upright torso throughout lifts. When it comes to power and Olympic lifts failing to hold that position can be a limiting factor in a successful lift.
Lifting shoes can range from $80-$300 depending on the brand and heel height, but the ones we linked to above start at $80 and are pretty popular among strength athletes.
In the article above we explain in detail why we believe the Echo Bike is the most versatile and important piece of equipment other than a barbell.
If you’re looking for all around fitness, as well as the best tool for shredding fat and speeding up your metabolism this is it.
Where Naked Protein really distinguishes itself is that fact that their Whey comes 100% from grass-fed cows as well as being made with only a total of 3 ingredients (Organic Whey, Organic Chocolate, Organic Coconut Sugar) along with no additives.
Grass-fed whey has been shown to have more BCAA’s and amino acids for recovery than regular whey. Grass-fed whey also is gluten-free, soy-free, and non-GMO. This is our protein of choice, and the one we are currently using ourselves.
In simplest terms if you are not taking beet powder or beet juice you are limiting your athletic potential and leaving gains on the table.
One source states that beet juice allows you to perform the same high intensity workouts while consuming less oxygen than normal, meaning it will take longer for you to hit that lactate threshold during a metcon. And it’s not just by a few seconds, drinking beet juice regularly slowed the time to exhaustion by 15%. Taking 15% longer to actually hit redline during a workout is a HUGE advantage for any Crossfit athlete.
Beet elite is the best version of beet powder on the market and it also tastes the best as it has a black cherry flavor.
In the most basic of terms Liquid IV is like drinking Pedialyte that hydrates you faster and better.
Our favorite thing about Liquid IV is that with each packet you drink its like you drank 3 glasses of water, which is extremely beneficial to people who don’t drink enough water.
Dehydration leads to muscle loss and decreased performance, that’s why we love this product.
The vast majority of people hate the way vegetables taste, but unfortunately we want their benefits and we have to eat them if we want to improve our training and physique.
Although this powder tastes alright on it’s own it is perfect for just throwing into your protein drink and forgetting its even there. Vegetables in this powder include:
- Organic Broccoli, Organic Alfalfa Grass, Organic Kale, Organic Spinach, Organic Spirulina and Organic Wheat Grass
- Organic Prebiotic, Organic Ashwagandha, Organic Panax Ginseng and Probiotics

Recording in Crossfit can sometimes be necessary as you may want to watch your form or film your workout for an online competition.
This tool will undoubtedly come in very handy as most people simply prop up their phone against a chalk bucket or water bottle. With this tool anyone can record anything they want at a perfect angle.
If you’re dealing with a little bit of tightness here and there or some low back pain we would highly recommend this, as we have tried it and this stuff works fast and well.
Of course it is not a permanent solution but if you’re looking to go into your next workout with a little less pain you could give this a try. Also, works great for sleeping.
It is always exciting to watch your progress through technology as sometimes it is hard to tell just by looking in a mirror.

To give you an idea of just how awesome this massager is, I am currently using for my hamstring as I write this.
You can use this for your back, legs, shoulders, and calves and you will love every second of it.

You could gift any one of these to the Crossfit addict in your life and you could not go wrong.
