You’ll win all the points with a CrossFit lover when you gift these training shoes. Every CrossFitter needs a reliable pair of shoes that helps them feel secure so they can avoid injury as they tackle new moves and chase ambitious PRs. The Nano 9 is the latest in the series of specially designed cross training shoes that can handle WODs. With input directly from the CrossFit community to update the shoe’s design, Reebok has developed the Nano 9 to handle whatever’s on tap for her next sweat session. The Nano 9 will give her the comfort and support necessary to feel secure with every step she takes around the gym, thanks to its newly engineered Flexweave that outperforms the flexibility of traditional Flexweave. It’s an all-around superb training shoe for anyone stepping into the box.


No CrossFitter can have enough tank tops. It’s just a fact. You can’t go wrong with a great workout tee. Whether her WOD is a ladder or a chipper, this women's tank top is designed to help her stay cool and unrestricted throughout each sweaty move. Made of breathable ACTIVCHILL cotton-blend fabric that moves heat away from the skin, it’s designed to have the breezy, comfortable feel she’s looking for in a workout top. This tank also sports an open back and is finished with a CrossFit Games graphic so she can share her pride for the sport with every rep. And to make this a complete CrossFit gift, pair this tank top with any pair of running shorts or tights on this list.


When it comes to women’s training workout tights, you have a ton of options to choose from. But which pair is right for someone who loves CrossFit? Look no further than the CrossFit® Lux 3/4 Tights, designed specifically for the sport. From double-unders to rowing, these women's training tights are designed for tough WODs and were developed thoughtfully based on input directly from the female CrossFit community. The tights are made of comfortable, sweat-wicking fabric, with a low-rise waist for freedom of movement. Bottomline: They’ll stay put throughout each and every box jump, rope climb, and squat. And their bright colors will perk up any day she’s dreading the gym. You may want to double up on this CrossFit gift and buy her two pairs, because we think she’ll be rocking this versatile pair from brunch with friends to the gym to running errands.


If you’re looking for CrossFit gift ideas for women who like to get outdoors for some of their workouts, they’ll need solid layering basics to create a warm, dry look no matter the conditions.  As the temps drop and she requires more coverage, this long sleeve t-shirt will be exactly what she’ll need to add to her rotation when she wants to head outdoors. Designed to keep her cool and dry as she challenges herself with every move, this long sleeve shirt is made of lightweight, sweat-wicking jersey. And the choppy angles of the tank's print give a nod to CrossFit's do-it-yourself style that she already represents. It’ll be light enough for her to wear it on its own in the gym or layer it up when she wants to take her workouts outside. Oh, and did you notice how cute it is? It’s a workout tee that won’t feel like a workout tee. We suspect she’ll wear it not just to the gym, thanks to its stylish design and slim fit that takes it way beyond the box.


Some athletes love leggings, while others live in shorts. Or maybe she’s into both. Either way, you can’t lose if you pick up the Reebok CrossFit Knit Waistband Shorts. When it comes to the perfect shorts for CrossFit, she needs something that won’t get in her way as she seamlessly sails through all the dynamic exercises in her WOD. And these women's shorts are designed to give her the range of motion she needs for CrossFit's varied movements, from those box jumps to robe climbs to never-ending squat series. They're made of lightweight stretch fabric that wicks sweat away from the skin, and the bright, surf-inspired print brings the beach to wherever she’s putting in the work, especially on dreary winter days. Plus, they’re top-rated by fellow CrossFitters who report the shorts have an “outstanding fit” and rank high across the board for comfort.




The Nano 9 are an excellent and versatile shoe for him, too. While the Nano 9 provides the stability and support necessary for any WOD, these sneakers go beyond the box and are perfect for any exercise, from a cardio kickboxing to HIIT workouts. Why? The updated light-weave Flexweave upper offers more flexibility to handle dynamic movements. Meanwhile, the additional midsole cushioning will make sprints far more enjoyable. And since Nano’s aren’t known for being running shoes, this is a huge plus for those who want a shoe that can take you comfortably from short runs to circuits at the gym. The Nano 9’s new technology can do both. And since he might also want shoe that doubles as a cross training shoe that can keep up no matter what direction he’s headed, these have a redesigned outsole that has been split into to two pieces for improved heel-to-toe movement for pretty much any movement he can think up.


These jersey-inspired workout shorts are a solid choice for a CrossFit gift if he needs a pair that make all the effort he’s putting into each workout just a little more comfortable. He’ll be able to meet the high-intensity demands of his challenging workout sessions in these shorts without feeling constrained. The sweat-wicking fabric will help balance the heat, while the stretchy build encourages a total range of motion with every rep, sprint, and post-workout stretch. Made of seamless knit jersey, these shorts provide a soft feel against his skin as he powers through his sweat sessions. Cut in a slim fit, they have a stay-put elastic waist so he can take on burpees, squats, and box jumps with confidence. The deep pockets are great if he likes to be hand free and wear these when he’s on the go. We have a feeling he’ll be wearing these more than just to the gym.  


If your CrossFit buddy is always showing up to the box in a ratty old t-shirt, you can’t go wrong with this CrossFit gift to help him upgrade his look with a new go-to workout shirt that is engineered to help him perform better during every workout. This seemingly simple graphic tee has built in details that every CrossFitter will appreciate. It features Reebok’s newest sweat-wicking fabric, which is now softer than ever with a next-to-skin feel he’ll love. Plus, its fibers work to pull wetness away from the skin while he’s pushing through reps, allowing him to keep his focus on the WOD at hand and not feeling like he’s dripping wet. Plus, it looks good, too: The tried-and-true Forging Elite Fitness read on the front is part of what makes this an essential CrossFit tee. It’s a versatile wardrobe staple he’ll want to wear often. Old with the old, in with this new look.



A CrossFit exclusive, these men's training shorts are designed for CrossFit's functional movements and high intensity, think explosive lunges and super quick sprints. He’ll love their stretchy, ultra-lightweight woven fabric that wicks moisture to help stay cool and dry as he powers through a challenging session. Side slits at the hem give him freedom of movement on burpees and walking lunges, so he can handle any dynamic exercise without feeling restricted so he can push himself to the limit. And the bright color options will make it easy for him to stand out from the crowd. As a CrossFit gift, we suggest pairing them with a simple t-shirt to help complete the look or toss them in as a fun stocking stuffer.
