Well, the holidays are here, and if you are like me, you wait until the last minute and half the time you don't know what to get. Most of the time I try to look out for hints, or I ask my wife's sister to help me pick out something. However, this year I got you covered.
Going into the new year, whipping into shape is on the top of everyone's list. Why not get someone something that would encourage them. It doesn't matter who you are; everyone loves some new workout gear or new phones to rock in the gym. Its a sense of confidence one gets to kill their workout. Below is a list of 8 great fitness gifts you can get that special someone for the holidays.
One way to show someone you are serious about helping them get healthier is to purchase them a gym membership, fitness trainer, or buy both. In my opinion, you should buy both. Majority of people who step foot in the gym have no idea what to do. Therefore, a fitness trainer will give them the guidance needed to start their journey.
The saying goes, "when you look good, you feel good, and when you feel good, you perform better." Wearing nice clothes in the gym boost your confidence and encourages one to get the most out of their workout. Pick up some nice gear like a compression shirt or shorts, or some comfortable shoes. Ideal fitness shoe brands are Asics, New Balance, and Brooks.
Fitbit is the new must have fitness gadget. They are stylish and track your steps, heart rate, and the number of calories burned during activity. Nothing is more motivating than seeing your daily progress. The great thing is that they are fairly affordable. Dad would love his new Fitbit to show off at the YMCA.
Who doesn't love a beautiful, relaxing day at the spa or a deep tissue massage? One of the best ways to relieve stress is to relax. A spa day and massages are a great way to relax and allow your body to release tension. Many health issues occur due to high-stress levels. Take care of your loved ones with a gift card to a local spa or massage therapist.
A quick gift you can pick up is a piece of fitness equipment. Anything such as gloves, dumbbells, a jump rope, and maybe a treadmill would be an excellent gift. Resistant bands are also an inexpensive gift that is very valuable. If you can't afford a gym membership or trainer a piece of equipment is a great gift to get someone started on their fitness journey.
We all like nice things with our names on them. It makes us feel unique or exclusive. Get a nice duffle bag or a bag large enough to fit all gym necessities in, and get it monogrammed with that person's initials or name. They won't have to worry about getting bags mixed up, and he or she will look the part while walking in the gym.
There is nothing like the sound of a good playlist to get you through your workout. There is also nothing more annoying than dealing with headphone wires while you are working out. Bluetooth headphones are a great gift. Each brand has its own sound quality and priced differently, so purchase what you can afford. However, you can't go wrong with some quality headphones.
If that particular someone workout in the heat or has an outdoor job, this cooling towel is a great way to beat the heat. Cooling towels are the new thing, and they are convenient. The best part of it is that they are a great price.
