Holiday Fit List (A Gift Guide for Runners)

This post is sponsored by Fit Approach on behalf of FlipBelt.

Its hard to believe that Christmas is only two weeks away!  If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast in your life, then you’ve come to the right place!  Below are some gift ideas fit for any runner!

gift guide

1.  Road ID

Safety is always at the forefront of my mind.  Although I always carry my phone with me when I’m out running, and have the Road ID app downloaded on my phone (which displays emergency contact info on my locked home screen), not every runner likes to carry their phone with them with they’re running.  A Road ID bracelet is a great alternative.

2.  Race entry to a 2015 race

Do you know which race(s) your favorite runner has their eye on?  A race registration makes a perfect gift for any runner.  And what’s even more perfect?  Since it doesn’t require ordering something that has to be shipped you can wait until the last minute to purchase this gift!

3.  New running shoes

A runner can never have too many pairs of shoes.  Just make sure that you know your runner’s preferred brand, style, and size!

4.  iTunes gift card

If your favorite runner likes listening to music while they run, then an iTunes gift card will give them the opportunity to add some new tunes to their playlist.

5.  FlipBelt

If your favorite runner struggles to carry their phone, keys, ID, and anything else that they might need while out on a run (maybe an inhaler if they have asthma, or fuel if they’re out for a longer run), then a FlipBelt is a perfect solution to their carrying needs.  Unlike armbands which can cause chaffing, FlipBelts sit on a runner’s waist.  Because of its unique design, FlipBelts are able to hold a number of items, and all items are able to remain easily accessible to a runner during their run.

If you’re interested in getting yourself or a loved one a FlipBelt, I have a couple of discount codes available to share.  To save 10% use code SWEAT10 at checkout.

Interested in saving even more on a FlipBelt?  Through my Sweat Pink Ambassadorship with Fit Approach, I’m able to offer 15 readers a discount code good for 33% off a FlipBelt.  How can you receive one of these discount codes?  Leave a comment below between now and Sunday, December 14th at 11:59 p.m. sharing how you currently carry essential items with you during a run, and I’ll randomly select 15 readers who will receive a discount code.  The names of those selected will be shared on the blog next week.

QOTD: How do you carry essential items with you during a run?

  1. My sister and I both have a flip belt. Mine is too big for me so it slides up but my sister likes hers alot.

  2. CARLA says:

    this nonrunner but walker LOVES her SPI BELT!!

  3. Souzapalooza says:

    I currently use a spi belt but my friend Sarah has been using the flip belt for a while and swears by it. I worry about things falling out of it, however she hasn’t had any issues. I’ve been toying with the flip belt idea for my Star Wars 1/2 since it would look better with my costume. (I think the road id is a great gift! as well! Better safe than sorry!)

  4. I currently hold my phone in my hand while running and put my fuel and key in my runningskirt pocket. The flipbelt looks awesome!

  5. Love my FlipBelt and I would totally love an iTunes gift card or new running shoes for Christmas! Great ideas 🙂

  6. Sue @ This Mama Runs For Cupcakes says:

    I have a flipbelt but don’t use it much. With running such long distances I’m used to having my hydration vest that has separate compartments. When I do shorter distances I’m more likely to wear it.

  7. Chaitali says:

    Great gift ideas! I love my flipbelt for longer distances (more than an hour) but I carry my armpocket on short runs and it works great too.

  8. Lesley says:

    When I condensed down to an iPhone, I knew I could use it as my iPod instead of needing to carry both. Throw in fuel and water, I felt like a pack mule.

  9. Pam says:

    I already have a Flipbelt and wrote a review and did a giveaway. It is one of 3 belts I own and depending on what I need to carry, I find it a very useful!

  10. Laurie says:

    I have a cheap-o belt that bounces around and has on occasion chaffed a wee little bit. Then there’s the armband holders for the things that don’t fit in the belt. I’m weighted down and look a little silly but it gets the job done!

  11. Love this list, but want to point out that even if a runner carries their phone when they are running, they should still have an actual RoadID or form of ID on them. The purpose of the RoadID is to give people identification and contact info if the person wearing it can’t speak. If a runner is hit by a car, it’s unlikely paramedics or witnesses would be looking through a phone for contact or ID info, especially if the runner is carrying the phone in their hand then and isn’t holding it after getting hit (likely they wouldn’t be).

  12. Jennifer says:

    I purchased a Flipbelt a couple months ago, but haven’t used it yet. Just nervous to (a bit irrational) even though I’ve read so many positive reviews. Maybe I’ll give it a shot this weekend!

  13. I want to try Flipbelt because my SPIbelt flops all over the pace!
