I don't know about you, but Christmas shopping can be very hard for me. As much as I want to get it done as soon as possible, I rarely do. This is the extent to which I have thought about it Christmas shopping so far this year. lol My husband has been doing great at training for and reaching some physical fitness goals he has. He has also been really good about watching what he eats (as long as no one brings treats home, haha). So I put together this list of 10 awesome fitness gifts for that active person in your life to help them stick with their goals or make new goals for 2015!
This would make a great stocking stuffer for your favorite active person (or yourself!) The bottle band is a silicone band that fits around almost any water bottle to give you an instant handle. Even if you aren’t a runner, it still comes in handy to make sure you’re staying hydrated. Check out my Bottleband Review post to see how we used it for a trip to the park!
This is my all time favorite protein. It is all natural, non GMO, and comes in several amazing flavors. It is the only protein that I’m ok sharing with my kids because I know it is that safe! Everyone needs protein, especially if you’re active and exercising regularly. The Shaklee 180 protein also has added leucine which helps your body retain muscle while burning fat. This is important so you don’t go through the dreaded yo-yo dieting cycle and gain the weight back. Your muscle = your metabolism so if you lose muscle your metabolism slows down and it becomes harder to lose weight. This would be perfect for the super busy person-on-the-go who needs to have a good breakfast in the morning, the athlete, or for anyone trying to lose weight and jumpstart a healthier lifestyle.
Running Tights/Compression Pants
With colder weather, don’t make excuses to not exercise. Ask for some running tights. I recently got a pair and love how they feel and how they fit. Baggy exercise pants just weigh you down and hinder your movement. But pants like these allow you to move freely and the compression helps your muscles during and after exercise. Plus there are so many cute patterns and colors, you will just look cool running!
Ello PURE Glass Water Bottle in Silicone Sleeve
Stay hydrated and be kind to the environment by using a reusable water bottle like this Ello PURE glass water bottle. You don’t have to worry about chemicals in plastic leaching into your water and you can reuse this again and again. The silicone sleeve protects the glass and let’s face it, makes it super cute!
Nathan Trail Mix Bottle Belt
This bottle belt would be great for the long distance runner in your life. My husband has one and used it all the time when he was training for a marathon. It is also great for hiking and camping to make sure you’ve got water on hand at all times!
Shaklee Energy Chews provide a clean burst of healthy energy and help you stay alert and sharpens focus.
Each Energy Chew delivers a scientific blend of caffeine from natural green tea extract, plus L-tyrosine, L-theanine, B vitamins, and vitamin D. And there are no artificial flavors, sweeteners or added preservatives you'll find in other energy products. These are great to take right before a work out, to help you make it through a long day at work, or right after lunch to help you avoid that mid afternoon slump. There are no jitters, shaking, or crashing afterwards like other products can do to you.
Zepp Gold 3D Swing Analyzer
I’m not a golf player, but maybe you or your spouse is…This thing looks awesome! The Zepp Golf Swing Analyzer…
- Reviews and replays your swing in 360 degrees
- Tracks club head speed, tempo, club plane, hand path, backswing position and more
- Compares and shares your swings with others
- Gives you personalized tips, drills and coaching
- Sets goals and track your improvement
Make sure you or your athlete are properly geared with some comfy athletic socks. There are so many different kinds, but it’s important that they are light and absorbent to wick moisture away quickly. My husband goes through them quickly when he’s exercising 3-4 days a week so he’s got a bunch of pairs so he always has some that are clean (even if I’m slacking on the laundry lol).
Yoga Gifts Under $25
I love doing yoga! I need to get back into it! There are tons of awesome yoga gifts on Amazon under $25, everything from mats to socks and so much more! Yoga is a great place to start to help tone up, become more flexible, and it is a great way to get exercise for those who need a low/no impact for of exercise! My mom has arthritis in her knees and hands but still does yoga/Pilates every morning to help her range of motion and keep her joints flexible!
Performance – hydration drink
The graphic kinda says it all but this is my favorite hydration drink. It’s so much better for you than the other leading electrolyte drinks that contain tons of sugar and weird chemical ingredients (like flame retardant!) I love this for my kids in the summer heat and tons of moms give this to their kids during soccer/baseball games! Performance is perfect for anyone that is active, whether they are a seasoned athlete or just beginning. Everyone needs to stay hydrated to perform at their best!
