Give the Gift of Fitness: Gear for the Runners on Your List

It’s the gift that keeps on giving — and keeps them going. Help the people on your list stay motivated to achieve their 2017 running goals with cool new gear they’ll wear beyond the holiday season. But what do they really need to stay pumped up through the coldest months? What’s the item that’ll make them want to lace up their shoes and hit the road immediately?

Armed with their in-depth knowledge of the gear, Under Armour’s Official Outfitters curated this list of high-performing picks for you and yours.

For Her

‘Tis the season to make your best running buddies, your marathon-training sister, and your track star cousin giddy to put in the miles.

(Performance from head-to-toe)

UA Sport Wireless Heart Rate


Whether she’s a Rihanna, a Beyoncé or a Katy Perry kind of girl, energize her every stride with these tech-savvy earbuds.

UA Run Reflective Knit Headband


Temps are dropping and daylight hours are scarce, but you know she won’t quit. She never does. Help her stay toasty and safe on the roads with this cozy pick.

UA ColdGear — Jacquard Shirt


Keep her ultra-warm during her coldest runs with not one but two layers of UA’s signature ColdGear fabric. A jacquard print and contrast sleeves add style points.

UA ColdGear Reactor


The ultimate layer for running, cross-country skiing and general cozy activities. Waterproof, windproof and lightweight — don’t judge her if she doesn’t take it off till spring.

UA No Breaks ColdGear Infrared Liner


Warm on their own, even warmer with another layer on top. She won’t leave home without them. Consider getting two pairs — she’s worth it.

UA Charged Bandit 2


Warning: She’ll be so psyched to take these for a road test, she may lace them up immediately after opening.

For Him

‘Tis the season to help your runner friends set PRs, your brother get his running start and your super-fast dad keep his (slight) lead on your mile time.

UA Storm ColdGear Infrared Elements 2.0 Beanie


No more forgetting to wear a hat and the classic, “My body’ll warm up.” This is the correct headgear; it’ll take him through winter and save scared conversations about ears falling off.

UA Sportstyle Anorak


Rain, sleet or snow — you know he’ll still be hitting the road. Keep him dry and looking sharp in a lightweight jacket.

UA Streaker


The ultimate everyday layer for temps from icy to mild — and his new favorite running shirt. He’ll sweat, wash and wear it on repeat. Be a pal and get him a couple different colors.

UA Storm ColdGear Infrared Elements


From his coldest workouts to shoveling heaps of snow, these will keep his hands toasty.



Superior compression meets total wind blockage. He’ll reach for this pair again and again through spring. They’ll basically become second skin.

UA Charged Bandit 2 Night


Designed for those dark winter runs in mind. Enhance his visibility while he’s putting in the miles. He’ll know you’ve got his back.
