Fitness Gift Ideas: My Top Picks
Are you looking for some great gifts for the fitness enthusiast on your list? Or, maybe you’re a fitness enthusiast yourself – looking for some suggestions to tell your kids, spouse, or parents. Here are some of my top picks:
The 21 Day Fix was my favorite workout of 2014. I love the variety – you’re never doing a move for longer than a minute, so you don’t get bored. Plus, it comes with a flexible, no-nonsense eating plan and containers for portion control. As you progress, use heavier weights to make it more challenging. I can’t wait for 21 Day Fix Extreme to come out in February!
YurBuds are an inexpensive earphone (under $30) that stays in place while you work out, even when you start to sweat. They come in mens’ sizes as well as ladies’ sizes for smaller ears. I have the sassy pink ones.
Last fall, I splurged and bought myself a pair of these Nike Free 5.0 running shoes. They are lightweight and super-comfy.
Chaturanga™ Tights by Athleta are my favorite running tights. I have them in basic black, patterns and capris. Not only are they super-comfy, they look great at the gym or for running errands, and they hold up great wash after wash. They are the first ones I reach for when all my laundry is clean.
I recently purchased a Trigger Point Foam Roller after I mentioned to a running friend I’d get sore after long runs. The roller is great to use before and after workouts to loosen up and massage the muscles. It can also be used as a core workout as well. I’ve only been using it for a week, but I have noticed a difference.
Let me know what fitness-related things you love most, would recommend, or are on your wish list this year!
