Let’s start with one of my favorite fitness gizmos. I use the Triggerpoint roller (below) every day to help keep my muscles supple and massage my legs, back and shoulders. I also find it helps with reducing the appearance of cellulite as it strengthens the fascia so cellulite doesn’t protrude so obviously.

Trigger point massage ball

If you have one particular spot or a trigger point that is painful, it’s very effective to massage yourself with a ball. Just lean against a wall with the ball on the painful spot and make slight movements to massage it. You’ll soon find lots of relief.

Deep tissue muscle treatment

Although the roller and massage ball above are very effective is getting your deep muscle tissue in good shape, the TheraGun is even quicker in doing that. Just put it on the painful spots and the machine will do its magic. I spoiled myself with this gift this year.

Jump rope

A jump rope makes a great fitness gift as it’s portable so you can pop it into your bag or suitcase to continue your fitness regime wherever you are. The Gaoykai rope (below) is weighted so it shouldn’t twist, and it is also adjustable so you can alter the rope length depending on your height.
