Top 10 workout gift ideas for Christmas – Christmas is right around the corner – can you believe it?
It’s time to find that all-important gift idea for the active man or woman in your life. I’m here to tell you the last thing he wants is another boring tie, and us women already have enough pairs of loungey sweatpants. You should speak to our hearts and what inspires us – leading a healthy and fit lifestyle. I scoured the internet for Christmas ideas and came up with these can’t-miss, yet practical, fitness items for the holidays.
For the techies out there, Fitbit is a wireless activity tracker that promises to track every part of your day, even when you are simply walking around the mall. There are various types, but most monitor steps taken, exercise, food, calories burned and individual sleep patterns. The data can be synched to your computer or phone, so you can stay on top of your fitness goals. *Great for men or women
- Yoga Mat
Talk about a useful and inexpensive gift, yoga mats range in price from $8-$40. Yes, there are different sizes and brands, but you really can’t go wrong getting one of these for the special woman in your life. I prefer the yoga mat with a handle for easy travel. *Great for women.
- Anything Lululemon
Lululemon is a yoga-inspired athletic apparel company and offers everything from the aforementioned yoga mats to outerwear, pants, socks and water bottles. I put this in the category for women, but there are plenty of stuff out there for guys, too. Heck, I do handstands anywhere I can in my Lululemon! *Great for women.
Kettlebells look like a mini bowling ball with a handle and they’re ideal for building core strength while improving cardio and flexibility. There’s probably 20-plus whole-body exercise routines you can do with these bad boys, and the best part is they are compact, portable and cheap. They come in various weights. *Great for men and women.
- Hamilton Beach Blender
I am constantly preaching the importance of incorporating all-natural smoothies into your workout diet, so why wouldn’t I suggest getting your loved one a high-performance food blender? This is an absolute must for anyone who wants to whip up a quick smoothie for the road, etc. *Great for women.
- Foam Roller
Effective in loosening up tight muscles by penetrating deep into muscle tissues and increasing range of motion. Foam rollers can be used before and after a workout. There are simple smooth rollers or ones with ridges. Either way, your loved one will love it after a nice, long workout! *Great for men and women.
- Yurbuds Ironman Series Inspire Earphones
These aren’t just any earphones, which is why I have them on here. Most earphones on the market today hurt or fall out during workouts, but Yurbuds are guaranteed to stay in place no matter how intense your workout gets. I know people who use them, and it’s a can’t miss. *Great for men and women.
The ultimate way to stay hydrated for long hikes, bike rides, runs or any other type of outdoor endurance activities. It’s essentially a sleek backpack that secures tight to the body and is outfitted with an internal bladder to hold water as well as smaller compartments for keys, small energy bars, etc. I’m seeing these pop up more and more and they appear to be extremely durable. *Great for men
- Gadget-friendly gloves
Have you ever been out and about in cold weather and you can’t unlock your smartphone because it won’t recognize the swipe while you are wearing gloves? Well, clothing companies have created smart phone gloves with specially-designed finger pads built in. They are great for workout enthusiasts or if you are just out and about shopping for the holidays. It sure beats taking your gloves on and off. *Great for men and women.
- Workout Journal
Talk about a simple gift! Anyone interested in getting in shape should be tracking their progress with a fitness journal. In fact, this is probably one of the first things you should get that special someone who is thinking about making a total mind and body lifestyle change. It’s great for home exercisers and gym rats because it keeps you on task and allows you to see your progress in clear terms. *Great for men and women.
