BFA 45 Litre HERO 2.0 Backpack

Our HERO backpacks are the benchmark for gym bags. The hard-wearing construction, waterproof, rip-proof material and attention to detail make them the ideal companion on anyone’s fitness journey.

Epsom Bath Salts

Epsom salts provide muscles with minerals to assist recovery and relieve soreness. They’re a luxury that would be appreciated by any athlete.

Massage Gun

You can find budget massage guns for as little as £20 or go all out and buy one of the big brand names. Either way, a massage gun is a fun gadget that can be really helpful with generating blood flow in tricky-to-reach areas. 


Headphones are always popular with athletes. For those who spend a lot of their time outdoors, a pair of sunglasses headphones could go down particularly well.

BFA 750ml Sports Bottle

Engineered for athletes so it can endure the most rigorous activities. Keep yourself hydrated with our large capacity reusable water bottle

Yoga Mat

With more and more people forced into working out at home, a yoga mat could save an athlete from some sore limbs. 

Winter Head Band

They’ll be thanking you every time they don their winter attire before heading out to train on those cold January and February days. Headbands provide good protection from the elements without causing overheating.

Sports Watch

A good sports watch or fitness tracker is almost a must for athletes these days. The good news is you don’t have to spend more than around £50 for something that provides basic functions. 

Athlete Blood Test

A blood test might not be at the top of every athlete’s wish list, but they will certainly thank you for it. The results can point out practical information, such as mineral deficiencies, which can be used to make dietary tweaks. 


Anyone who exercises a lot should be extra conscious about getting enough natural vitamins and immune-system boosters, so a juicer is practical as well as being fun to use.
