Christmas: a time for food, candy, chocolates, and all kinds of sugar-filled goodies. Many of us tend to pack on a few pounds over the holidays and if you’re like me, those pounds tend to stick around well after the holiday season has passed. This year, you can treat your health- conscious loved ones to these great gifts:
1) FiveFingers Running Shoes
The “barefoot running” trend calls for a change in the traditional running shoes. Try the FiveFingers sports shoes which allow the foot’s numerous muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments to be better worked and strengthened during every fitness activity.
2) Yamuna Body Rolling Foot Walkers
Fitness freaks sometimes forget to add foot fitness to their daily routines. Foot Walkers are plastic half-spheres with nobbies that aid in stimulating the bottom of the feet. Use them to help increase circulation, strengthen muscles and tendons, increase flexibility and reduce foot pain.
3) Happylight Sunshine Supplement Light
Combat the winter blues with a sunshine supplement light. It’s not all in the body, it’s in the mind too. This compact energy lamp simulates natural daylight, essentially triggering the body’s natural tendencies and helping to improve energy, concentration, and mood.
4) Bowflex Adjustable Dumbbells
These adjustable dumbbells are like having a whole home gym at your disposal. Each dumbbell adjusts from 5 to over 50 pounds, combining 15 sets of weights into one. This is a great way to fit an entire weight training system into a small space.
5) Hydro Flask
Where other bottles tend to “sweat” and leak, the Hydro Flask’s durable insulation and stainless steel design will keep your drink cold for more than 24 hours without sweating. It’s a perfect fit for gym bags and bike bottle holders. It also keeps hot drinks hot and will fit in most car cup holders. Bonus!
6) Nayoya Acupressure Mat
The highly-rated acupressure mat stimulates your body’s production of endorphins, which in turn creates a calming, soothing effect all over your body. The Nayoya mat can be used to treat stress, fatigue, soreness and pain in the joints, muscles, feet, neck, and back. It’s an essential tool for overall health and wellness.
7) Striv Smart Pedometer
A pedometer is a great tool for people of every fitness level. This smart pedometer goes beyond counting the user’s steps by adding interactivity and motivational features. Setting goals and striving to keep them going becomes much more fun.
8) Zumba Fitness System
Join the Zumba revolution! With moves and music from different styles like salsa, hip-hop, belly dance and more, it’s a fun and fast-paced workout that has everyone talking (and dancing!). This Zumba DVD set is much more than a simple follow-along, making it a hot gift for all ages and fitness levels.
