The MyGym Christmas Gift Guide

The MyGym Christmas Gift Guide

–  I appreciate that this might be a little last minute and ‘Panic Saturday’ is fast approaching but here are my choices for the very first MyGym Christmas gift guide. I’ve made the choices based on my own personal experiences and taken into account the quality of the product, style, function and price.

Like The Wind

The My Gym Christmas Gift Guide

If, like me, you enjoy a good read and magazines that are different from the mainstream publications then you’ll love ‘Like The Wind’… as in ‘Run Like The Wind’.

Each edition of Like the Wind magazine is a collection of running stories. There are personal anecdotes, inspirational tales, reportage, beautiful illustrations and stunning photography. The magazine launched in February 2014 and we publish an edition every quarter

Each quarterly publication oozes quality both in the writing and photography / art but also in the paper and ink used to make it. It’s a great gift idea for the runner in your life or as a treat for yourself. Curl up and take your time to enjoy this masterpiece.

Issue 7 is out now priced £9.00 from Like The Wind – Back issues, bundles and subscriptions also available.


Karkoa Smartbag

Reviewed back in July of this year, this French start-up is making waves in the fitness accessories market having not only released two sizes of their highly rated Smartbag but have recently released a duffel and ladies gym bag to boot. Here is our original review of the larger of the two bags the Smartbag 40.

The Smartbag 40 is available directly from Karkoa priced at £63.00


Garmin Vivoactive

As full GPS fitness and activity trackers go the Garmin Vivoactive is not only very attractively priced in a very competitive market but it also looks pretty damn sexy on the wrist. With a full colour touch screen and slim design (the Apple Watch is actually thicker) you can wear this in the office, out on the tiles and while your training.

From the company that has been developing robust, dedicated wearable technology to improve training metrics for athletes for more than a decade comes the GPS smartwatch for the active lifestyle. Introducing vívoactive – the ultra-thin, lightweight smartwatch with built-in Garmin sports apps that you can wear every day to help you keep a healthy balance between work and life.

It’s also waterproof enabling it to monitor swimming as well as running, walking, cycling and even golfing!

Priced from £199 from Garmin

SWIG Flask

The My Gym Christmas Gift Guide

For something a little different and decedent why not get this hipster flask from SWIG. The brand has been getting quite a bit of attention over the last couple of years since it’s start up and for good reason.

SWIG is a worldwide luxury hip flask brand. We put a lot of effort into quality of our product, therefore we are happy to give lifetime guarantee. Swig flasks are designed to last for generations.

The stylish flasks come beautifully packaged in a gift box with ribbon and range from the leather Executive (pictured) to a Harris Tweed or just plain naked. Each flask is stamped with it’s own number for authenticity and SWIG branding.

Although not a ‘fitness’ gift, it’s perfect for those adventures away from home be it camping, trekking or sailing. All work & no play….

Available directly from SWIG with prices starting from £49.99


Scaramouche & Fandango Range

I have been using Scaramouch & Fandango (not the easiest brand name to say or remember) since I received there sport EDT from a subscription service.

I love the branding on each product reminding me of my old school days sat in Chemistry class trying to learn the Periodic Table!
The My Gym Christmas Gift Guide

Male grooming doesn’t need to be overwhelming or difficult. We are dedicated to delivering high performing body and skincare products but communicated in a simple and straightforward way and at an accessible price.

Quality is great across all the ranges and the fragrance is gorgeous, manly but not over-powering, more understated then anything. I can personally vouch for the Sport Shower Wash and Sport EDT and if buying for a gift both items come in a handy and stylish wash bag, perfect for the gym.

Available online direct from Scaramouche & Fandango


The Chapar

The My Gym Christmas Gift Guide

The Chapar is a personal stylist service for men that don’t have either the time or the skill to buy the latest trends and put an out-fit together (I have time, but no skill).

I’ve used the service a handful of times over the last three years and although sometimes it has been a little hit & miss, lately they seem to have upped their game sending out new and established brands and out-fit choices.

The clothes are delivered via courier to either your work or home address in The Chapar Trunk. Clothes are bundled together by outfit with an explanatory note from your stylist about the clothes that have been picked for you and how to wear them.

You decide what you want to keep then the courier collects the trunk back with the items you don’t…simple!

Sign yourself up or treat a loved one to a stylist service from The Chapar.
