GU Energy products. One can never have too much great fuel. Fueling properly during workouts and races makes a huge difference both in performance and recovery. If you haven't already tried the special winter flavor of salted caramel energy gel, I highly suggest checking it out. The salted caramel gel also makes a great stocking stuffer! Another perfect stocking stuffer from GU are the electrolyte tabs.
Trigger Point foam roller.
Everyone should have their own foam roller. I suggest the Trigger Point foam roller because it is very long lasting and will not wear down with use like other foam rollers. Trigger Point also has more advanced products that target certain main muscles and those are great as well.
X-1 Audio underwater headphones
If you have ever wanted to try out using headphones while swimming, this is a great product. Send me a message if you want a 20% off coupon for anything at X-1.
Indoor bike trainer. If you have a road bike (or really any bike that you like to ride outside in nice weather) an indoor bike trainer is great for the winter. At face value they may seem a bit pricey, but they are long lasting and very useful. I have hundreds and hundreds of miles on my CycleOps Fluid trainer and it still runs like new.
Warm socks for running and cycling in the winter. Any type or brand will do for these and most people probably already have long socks, but in my early days of running I always struggled in the winter with having really cold ankles from that little bit of skin being exposed above my socks and below the bottom of my spandex.
