There are a lot more ladies out there lifting heavy weights than there used to be, especially with the growing popularity of crossfit and the #strongnotskinny movement. Ladies are finally realising that heavy weights don’t have to mean bulky muscles, that if you build up strong lean muscles you will improve your metabolism, burn more fat and generally sculpt your body to look healthy and toned. If the lady you are buying for is lifting, she probably knows a thing or two about fitness, she has done her research. Have a look at these gift ideas for the strong lady in your life!

Adidas training gloves, £9.50 reduced from £19
There are plenty of training gloves out there – but these are a bit different from all the rest…and we like pink. If she isn’t a pink type of chick they also do these in silver and black. They are lovely and bring a feminine edge to something practical… this will help protect her hands from hurting or getting blisters while doing weights.

Protein shakes are not just for the boys and there are protein powders out there suitable for a girl that works out and does weight training.
