With all the time, sweat, and energy they spend training, every athlete deserves to be treated and feel special every once in a while. And Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show the athlete in your life how much you love them.
Here are 14 of the best Valentine’s Day gifts that will tell the athlete you love most just how special they are to you.
1. The Hypervolt Go
One of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for an athlete is the gift of recovery. The Hypervolt Go is a portable percussion massage that comes in a perfectly compact form so athletes can recover from anywhere. Trust us, percussion massages will be their new favorite way to recover their muscles from a tough workout, as these can promote the release of lactic acid, help in muscle recovery, increase the range of motion, and improve circulation.
Get the Hypervolt from Dan’s Bike Shop.
2. A Day at the Spa
If you want to level up the recovery-related Valentine’s Day gifts, treat the athlete you love to a day at the spa. Everyone deserves a day to be treated, from head to toe. Plus, with a couples massage, it’ll definitely be a win-win for both of you.
