Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Festivus (For the Rest of Us!) the holiday season is a time for giving gifts to those you love. If your list includes people who are hard core fitness freaks or someone looking to start a fitness plan in the new year, there are some great gifts out there. From callus-guard gloves and fitness tracker bands to guest passes to a local gym and hart rate monitoring fitness apparel there are plenty of fitness-related products you can give as gifts.
Here are our recommendations:
Fit Four Gloves: Well, of course! If you know someone who is a diehard cross trainer and participates in exercises that involve grueling hand work, such as rope climbs, using kettle bells and snatching barbells, our callus-guard gloves are just the thing to stuff in a stocking. Lightweight, minimalist in design and available in many sizes, our workout gloves are great for athletes who push the limits when they exercise.
Guest Passes: If someone on your list is thinking about getting in shape and needs a little encouragement, guest passes to the gym you belong to are a great idea. We all know how hard it can be to start an exercise program and that many people will find many excuses to avoid taking that first step. If you belong to a gym, inquire at the front desk about guest passes (some will give these away for free) and surprise your friend with their ticket into the promised land. You may also invite yourself along on their first visit to help them get acclimated to the environment.
Garmin Forerunner 15: You probably have a few friends on your gift list that exercise as much as you do and in that case you may want to consider this fitness tracker from Garmin. In addition to being a runner’s watch, this gadget also counts how many steps you take in a day and has an optional heart rate monitor. Waterproof up to 50 meters it can also be used by swimmers and is a great gadget for triathletes and Iron Man competitors.
