I know we don’t really want to talk about it yet, but reality is that winter is setting in and that only means one thing… it’s gonna be Christmas before we know it. For me, the whole holiday season doesn’t officially start until Elf, the movie, has had the first of its annual viewings and I should let you know that I did go into my sideboard today to check I knew where to locate it when the time is right!
With Christmas, comes gift buying… I’m not big on gifts but it doesn’t mean that everyone else is like me. For 2017, I figured I would do what I do best and reach out to the community to see what everyone has on their fitness Christmas (“Fitmas”) lists to help inspire you with what to buy for the ones in your life who like to get sweaty, or y’know, for yourself (I won’t tell).
I’m Bethan from A Pretty Place To Play and with some big challenges coming up over the next year I really hope Santa brings me some goodies to help me perform at my best!

A gift card to an aerial class at Flying Fantastic:
I started doing aerial silks over a year ago and I am hooked! I would love to try more aerial classes there like rope, aerial hoop or trapeze.
This yoga sweatshirt I found on Not on the High Street:
Because let’s be honest, we all want to look good on our way in and out of the gym.
This activewear set from Oysho, the print is beyond pretty and I love the bra design
A nice pair of bluetooth wireless headphones.
If there is a time when wires annoy me in when running or at the gym, it’s time to invest in one of these.
I know it sounds like deodorant it´s not a gift, but this all natural formula is super gentle on skin and super tough on sweat! I got it in one of my monthly Birchbox and I am so impressed with it!
