This year encouraged us to take our health seriously. From mental to physical, we likely made a lot of changes that will definitely have long-term effects. Among those was recovery, specifically muscle recovery. Between hiking, running and lifting, your muscles definitely go through a lot. So, it’s important to treat them with care. Regardless if the person on your list is new to exercising or a seasoned enthusiast, it’s important to create healthy habits early.
Ahead, we listed our favorite recovery tools that make great gifts. From something that can be tucked into a stocking to some splurge-worthy products, grab these in time for on-time delivery.
Those new to consistent recovery will love the EVA foam cover with a 3-D surface that can both target large muscle groups and pinpoint specific areas. The AcuGRIP handles also promise targeted relief to deep tissue.
