The definition of a gym rat may vary from person to person but the wants and needs of any gym rat are usually always the look good, stay healthy, and always have fresh gear.  By fresh, we do not mean that old first generation iPod that is practically a 5lb dumbbell, but more so that sleek new Apple watch paired with wireless headphones that's fresh.

Yet when it comes time to gift your gym rat at Christmas or on their birthday, it's like pulling teeth to figure out what they want. So, what better gift to give to all you non-gym rats out there, than a gift guide for your gym rat?!?

So behold the most epic, fresh, workout gear gift guide you'll ever find.....

Now that your gym rat has the iWatch they are going to need a set of wireless or bluetooth headphones. Without a set of these there is no way for them to listen to their music through the apple watch. The idea is to create a wire-free workout more knocking your phone off the treadmill while your trying to change the song or increase your speed. Brands like Beats by Dr.Dre, Bose, Yurbuds, and Jaybird have all come out with top of the line wireless headphones and earbuds that will change the way your gym rat jams out during their leg workout!
