Since there are 2 weeks left til Christmas & the start of Hanukah (Yup. Plenty of time!) I pulled together a list of 10 awesome gift ideas for the fitness enthusiast in your life, ranging from $8 to $140 (listed below in that order) to make your life easier in the gift-giving season.
These are staples in my life & have served me well... I highly recommend them!
Check them out below...
Feel free to share this blog with those you love as a "hint, hint... here are some things to get me!" I make it super easy because the links are right there to purchase. & yes, I am an amazon affiliate, so if you use my links to amazon, I receive a percentage of the purchase. I am not an affiliate for TRX, audible or the journals. I just think these things are GREAT! (full disclosure here!)
Adjustable Jumprope = $8
I LOVE my jumprope. It's great cardio & you can take it anywhere.
This is a staple in my workout routine, especially when I travel.
Jumping rope improves coordination, boosts the heart rate
& builds your calves. Plus it makes ya feel like a kid again.

or Purchase an audio book
Get Focused & Achieve Goals in 2017
5 Minute Journal = $22
This is a daily habit creator that sets the tone every morning
& evening to change your mindset.
Daily Greatness Journal = $45 (get 5% off through this link)
This journal asks great questions that get you thinking
& exploring what it is you want in your life so you can
actually do what it takes to achieve it!
Add resistance to your workouts and help with hand speed,
coordination as well as increased endurance.
Strengthens your arms and shoulders
+ adds intensity (heart rate will go up!)
*NOT for heavy bag training. Do this instead.
Foam Roller = $20
This is a must-have for anyone involved in moving
their bod - in other words, I believe EVERYONE
should have a foam roller. This is a self-massage tool
that loosens up the tight knots & helps release
bound-up connective tissue around the joints
that causes stiffness, pain & limited mobility.
Weight Lifting Gloves = $25
Great for callus and blister protection.
Gloves are ideal for weight training,
biking, cycling, & even body weight training
to protect your hands from the ground.
Good quality, washable & available in several colors.
I love my gloves!
Fold-Up Travel Yoga Mat = $25
Have yoga mat, will travel!
This is an awesome gift for anyone who likes to stretch
& keep it moving when they are on the road.
A rolled up yoga mat makes it awkward to bring on a plane,
but this can be put in a bag or suitcase, no problem!
Progress Not Perfection (only thru 12/13)
In case you know someone who beats themselves up when things aren't "perfect", this motto will remind them that it's not about being perfect, it's about your progress. 🙂
BOSU = $100
BOSU stands for "BOth Sides Up" - this is a workout tool
that will increase the challenge
& intensity for any at-home exerciser.
It helps take their workouts to a new level because it works
your balance like nothing else. This is a member favorite
& I've been training clients on a BOSU since the late 90's! It's a great investment.
TRX = $140
Total Body Cross Training at it's finest.
Developed by a navy seal, a TRX can be used in your home,
at the park, at the beach, or anywhere you want to workout.
TRX is a staple in my workout equipment arsenal.
Clients & members LOVE this thing. I've been using it since 2008 & I'm still not tired of using it! A solid investment.
