It’s gift-giving season, so let’s talk about the best gifts you can give to someone who is into fitness!
Fitbit Flex – This is one advanced activity tracker that not only counts your steps, calories burned, and flights of stairs, but your sleep patterns as well. It allows you to set a goal for yourself and uses LED lights to show you your progress. This will definitely keep you moving throughout the day.
Bombas socks – I got a chance to try these socks for the first time a couple weeks ago, and I love them. Bombas has really thought about the design of their socks and added things like a blister tab on the back and honeycomb arch support in the center to really help your feet feel comfortable and stay safe while working out.
Water Bobble: Filtered water bottle – I have been using these bottles for years and I still haven’t found anything I like better. That cap filters your water so you can fill up at any water fountain and have fresh tasting water.
Manduka Yoga Mat – This mat may be more expensive than your normal Target brand yoga mat, but it is definitely worth the investment. The wear and tear is great on these mats. They are thicker and have less slip. So, there is lots of cushion for your pilates and yoga exercises. It also won’t be slipping and sliding underneath you as you’re moving around.
Core Bag by Live Well 360 – This bag has a vented compartment for sweaty clothes and smelly shoes – what else could you possibly ask for? They really thought about the design of this bag and it’s the perfect size!
Fitness Journal – Every fitness freak likes to keep track of his or her workouts and food intact. Try this cool journal from Fitbook; it has everything laid out so you just need to fill-in your nutrition and exercise each day.
Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad Sports Towel – Use it to dry down or cool off. It retains water while still feeling dry. It can also keep you cool during a long round of golf or a sweaty HIIT workout!
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells – If you are planning on working out from home, this is what you need. These dumbbells adjust from 5 to 52.5lbs. If you buy adjustable dumbbells, as you get stronger and progress in your workouts, you don’t need to go buy more equipment. So, even though the initial payment is a bit pricey, it will likely save you the cost of purchasing more equipment, and they take up less space than 5 different pairs of dumbbells!
Vitamix Blender – Whether you get a personal size blender or a classic – full sized blender. There is no denying that Vitamix is one of the best ones out there. It’s better to invest in a nice blender like this one than continuously buy cheap replacement blenders.
Nike Storm 2-Bottle – Yes, I know sometimes these products look silly when you wear them. But, having to carry your water bottles as you push through a tough hike can get pretty annoying. This also has a zip pocket to store items like your keys or some cash, allowing you to have a hands-free hike and not worry about losing anything!
