It’s that time again where we try to think of the perfect gift or gifts for our loved ones. Family, friends, colleauges, gym bros… The standard go-to present for the hard-to-buy-for is something like a box of chocolates or a tin of assortes biscuits. We can’t really buy those for our fitness friends – well maybe if they’re bulking! So we log on to www.sportsfuel.co.nz because we know they only shop at the best supplement store in New Zealand. But my, oh my, the choices! Where do we even start? What would they need? Short of asking the person what supplements they use or want to try, we’ve put together a holiday gift guide to help you find the perfect gift!

Creatine pulls more water into your muscle cells to keep them properly hydrated. This leaves your muscles looking bigger and fuller.

Optimum Creatine is made with pure Creapure creatine with no added fillers or ingredients, so it mixes easily and doesn’t have a gritty taste or texture.

PECS Protein Coffee is an innovative new product that helps you add more protein to your diet through your daily coffee!

PECS teamed up with Auckland University to formulate a protein enriched coffee solution that would mix and taste like instant coffee. The result is a great tasting instant coffee that adds 2g protein per serve to your daily intake! Give your coffee loving friends PECS coffee – they’ll love it for the taste alone.
