1. Kids Barbell
The Kids Barbell is the ideal gift for your ‘athlete in training’ mini-me. With the Kids Barbell, your little buddy will not only become your favourite workout companion, but they’ll have lots of fun imitating you during your WODS and workouts. The Kids Barbell is made in Australia and is available from a choice of 13 different colours.Shop Kids Barbells
2. Shorty Barbell
Got a mate with a small home gym or garage home gym? The Shorty Barbell is the ultimate home gym gift for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of space to work with. We’ve designed our Shorty Bar to have the same grip, feel and identical shaft length of an Olympic barbell so it can still fit on a regular-sized squat rack. They’re the best compromise between compactness and versatility and we must say ‘value for money’ too.SHOP SHORTY BARBELLS
3. Booty Bands
For the friend or family member that is looking to level up the glute workouts, then look no further than the AlphaFit Booty Bands. These resistance bands are an essential tool for building and toning your lower body either at home or at the gym. Portable, compact in size and colour coded by resistance level, these bands are designed with internal rubber grips to ensure they stay put and don't roll up while you’re exercising.SHOP BOOTY BANDS
4. Training Plate Carrier Weight Vest
The Training Plate Carrier Weight Vests are a workout game changer. These weight vests can benefit your workout by allowing you to add extra resistance and help you build explosive strength, endurance and speed. The tactical style of the weight vest lets you insert 2kg and 4kg steel plates (up to 20kg of weight) into the front and back pockets without making it feel too bulky. Get it for yourself or for someone you know that loves a seriously intense workout.
Our Plate Carrier Weight Vests come in two different styles: the Training Plate Carrier Weight Vest and the Tactical Plate Carrier Weight Vest. The Tactical Plate Carrier Weight Vest includes the addition of quick release straps allowing for quick and easy removal and a drag strap at the back used for complete ‘human’ sled pulls.SHOP TRAINING PLATE CARRIER WEIGHT VESTS
5. Hex Dumbbells
These Hex Dumbbells are a great gift for anyone who basically lives at the gym. A favourite among professional athletes and the most dedicated fitness devotees, our Hex Dumbbells feature a straight grip and a consistent knurl for enhanced comfort and grip during any workout.
