50 Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

The holidays are upon us and it’s time to start thinking about those special gifts you want to purchase for your loved ones.  This year why not give the gift of health and fitness to those that you love?  The following is a list of some of my favorite fitness toys, kitchen tools and other healthy ideas to make your gift say how much you care.  For your convenience just click on the Amazon links below to find out more about the product or quickly place it in your cart to purchase.

FOR THE HOME GYM:

 50 healthy holiday gift ideasFoam Roller – This basic foam roller is essential for any home.  “Rolling” before and after a workout can be very beneficial in the treatment or prevention of injuries.  I like the longer one, as there are several uses for releasing muscle tightness in the shoulder and back area that require the longer length.  A shorter one will work fine for just legs but it makes more sense to invest in the longer one.  This is a sturdy, dense, high quality roller that I keep in my gym.  PRICE:  $18.60   BUY NOW

 

Gymboss Plus Interval Timer 50 healthy holiday gift ideas – This little timer is great for your interval workouts.   Set it up for whatever time intervals you want and clip it to yourself or just lay it down and go!  Make sure you get the Plus version because the beeps are louder.   I use this all the time for my clients and for my own workouts as well.  PRICE:  $19.95 BUY NOW

 

50 healthy holiday gift ideasKettlebells – Kettlebells are all the rage and any gym rat is going to love this deal.  If your loved one is looking to increase strength and stamina this might be the perfect gift.  My clients find that their kettlebell workouts increase heart rate quicker, work to stabilize the muscles and add a different, dynamic dimension to their training.  These kettlebells are a great price, offering 3 good beginner to intermediate weights (10, 15 and 20 lbs.), have a good handle and are made from cast iron.   The handle size is important for not just comfort but functionality allowing for safe movements.  PRICE:  $38.00 and up  BUY NOW

 

Weighted Ropeless Jump Rope50 healthy holiday gift ideas – Jump rope can be an excellent way to strengthen your cardiovascular system and burn loads of calories.  Some people find it hard to skip rope due to space constraints or even some lack of coordination.  The Ropeless Jump Rope is one of my clients very favorite toys, allowing them to feel successful and get a good calorie burn without constantly having to stop because they stepped on the rope.      PRICE:  $11.50  BUY NOW

 

50 healthy holiday gift ideas

Bender Ball Knock Off – Ask any of my clients what their favorite core workout would be and they say Bender Ball.  This ball inflates to a soft ball that can be used in many different ways to strengthen all the core muscles.  What people love about it is they can put it behind their back and do crunches without engaging their neck or hip flexor muscles.  A great gift for anyone of any age or fitness ability. PRICE:  $12.99   BUY NOW

 

Jumpsport Mini Trampoline50 healthy holiday gift ideas – Rebounding as part of your exercise routine has some amazing benefits.  Studies have shown that it improves balance in the elderly, reduces incontinence, builds bone mass, improves cardiovascular function, increases lymphatic system flow, reduces risk of injuries and its fun!  My clients love having interval time on the my Jumpsport but having one in your own gym to use everyday would be very beneficial to your health.  This is a great price for a very sturdy and well built product.  Don’t be fooled by the cheap ones and don’t get sucked                                      into spending twice as much on some of the others.  PRICE:  $249.99  BUY NOW

 

50 Healthy Holiday Gift Ideas

BOSU Balance Trainer – This funny looking “half circle” is actually a tool used by many personal trainers and physical therapists to help people improve fitness and strengthen muscles while working on balance and coordination.  I like to use it in my gym for an endurance interval or to work on balance while doing strength training exercises standing on top of the dome.  The word BOSU means “both sides up” because there are exercises you can do on both sides of the dome.  Tons of online videos and workout ideas available.  PRICE:  $92.00  BUY NOW 

 

FOR THE WORKOUT FANATIC:

 

50 healthy holiday gift ideasPolar FT 7 Heart Rate MonitorThe polar FT 7 comes in several color options but the price points change with each one by quite a lot so check out the  one with the best price.  I highly recommend heart rate monitors so that my clients know if they are working in their target heart range for optimal results and also to make sure they are not working too hard.  Of all the monitors on the market, this model is by far the most reliable and functional for the price.  It gives calories burned, target heart rate and a soft warning sound if you fall above or below your zone.
