20 Gifts Perfect For the Fit Dad in Your Life
If the dad in your life lists the gym, hiking, or running as his favorite thing to do, you've come to the right place. This Father's Day, pick him up a little something that feeds right into his passion for all things fitness.
Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit Men's Training Shoe
If Dad is into Olympic lifting, CrossFit, or serious weight training, he will love the Nike Metcon DSX Flyknit Men's Training Shoe ($160). Designed with serious weight training in mind, it provides incredible stability but still manages to be lightweight.
Apple Watch Nike+
If the man in your life loves tech and running, you can't beat the Apple Watch Nike+ (prices start at $369) as a gift. He'll have access to his email and calendar while also being able to use the built-in GPS and heart rate sensor to track his mileage.
Designer Whey Protein Powder
Trust us when we say that protein powder is not a weird gift! Designer Whey Protein Powder ($30) is made from GMO-free whey protein concentrate and GMO-free whey protein isolate, and each serving contains a whopping 20 grams of the good stuff.
Yeti Tundra 35 Cooler
Meet Yeti, aka the Cadillac of coolers. Whether he's a fan of camping, fishing, or tailgating, he is going to flip out upon seeing the Yeti Tundra 35 ($300). This cooler keeps ice frozen for a good 24 hours (as I can personally attest to); it's practically indestructible and definitely bear-proof.
Petzl Tikka Headlamp
If the dad in your life doesn't have a Petzl Tikka Headlamp ($30), this should be at the top of your list come Father's Day. Besides being a saving grace while camping, it also comes in handy during evening runs and bike rides. Its practical applications are pretty endless, too. It's basically a flashlight, but better.
Patagonia Men's R1 Fleece Pullover
There's many a good reason rock climbers are obsessed with Patagonia Men's R1 Fleece Pullover ($129). It's a great base layer on colder days in the mountain but can easily be worn alone on days where just a little added protection is needed. Best of all, it doesn't constrict movement, meaning your guy can climb, hike, ski, or backpack without any annoying clothing getting in the way.
Second Skin 2-in-1 Woven Short
You wouldn't know it, but there's a pair of compression shorts built into the Second Skin 2-in-1 Woven Short ($60). Not only does this add the security of coverage during his workouts, but he also gets the performance benefits that come from compression gear.
Nalgene Wide Mouth
This unassuming Nalgene Wide Mouth ($11) may seem boring, but we promise it's not. This classic bottle's design hasn't changed in decades because it's a fan favorite. It's also tough. It's likely to never break despite how many times it's dropped on its head.
PowerBlock Elite 50 Lb. Dumbbell Set
One set to rule them all! No more fussing with an annoying number of dumbbells lying around the house. The PowerBlock Elite 50 Lb. Dumbbell Set ($300, originally $258) can be set to five pounds, 50 pounds, and everything in between.
New Balance Short Sleeve Heather Tech Tee
Keep Dad cool and sweat-free in a New Balance Short Sleeve Heather Tech Tee ($25).
