We know how hard it is to holiday shop, so we thought we would help you out with ideas AND let you get to know all of us at BreakingMuscle.com a bit better. We asked our writers, featured coaches, and guest contributors if they could pick ANY 10 fitness/sports/health related items to put on a Holiday Wish List, what would they pick?
Check out what Coach Mindith wants more than anything this year!

If you have ever tried battling ropes then you know they are a super effective metabolic conditioning tool. I would want to include the rope pole as well. There is aslo a pink jacketed rope availabled, designed to work out in any conditions indoor and outdoor.
7. RKC Kettlebells by Dragon Door – $237.50
Dragon Door kettlebells are the best kettlebells on the market, being they are the only ones that are authentic Russian kettlebells, with rust resistant e-coat. I would like to have a set of 24kg kettlebells for deadlifts and farmer’s walks.
8. New Balance WX20WB Cross-Trainer – $84.99
I love my other New Balance shoes, including the MT-101’s, and I would like to try the the New Balance 20 Minimus Cross-Trainers. Being a girl, first I love the color of these shoes, but I also love the barefoot style and lower profile especially for training with kettlebells.
9. Trigger Point Therapy Kit – The Ultimate Package – $194.96
This set is all I need to work my entire body and release my muscles. The set includes the quadballer, the footballer, two trigger point massage balls, and the baller block. The people behind Trigger Point work with athletes regularly and know what’s needed to stay healthy.
This is the big fantasy item on my list. I have always wanted to see the Olympics and the 2012 games, especially the Olympic Weightlifting competitions, looks to be an amazing event meant to be seen live.
