Blast Off: Give the gift of health

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about which gifts you plan on giving your loved ones.

With the holidays fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about which gifts you plan on giving your loved ones.

Why not try something different this year? Give your loved ones the gift of health! There are many ways to do this and you don’t have to dish out a fortune in order to encourage that special someone to get moving.

As personal trainers, we’ve put our heads together and come up with what we would ask Santa for this holiday season.

Most, if not all of these gift ideas can be found right here in town.

If you are unable to find them locally, try looking online.

Gifts $15 and under:

Yoga mat

BPA-free water bottle or canteen

Resistance Tubing

Stability Ball

Loose Leaf Tea (try steeped tea)

Gifts $30 and under:

Magazine subscription to Clean Eating Magazine

Magazine subscription to any fitness magazine

Foam roller (check Crazy Soles in town)

iTunes gift card

Interval timer (try Gymboss)

Gifts $75 and under

Workout clothing

A blender (for smoothies and much more!)

Hand weights

Running sneakers

Of course, at the very top of your wish list should be a gift certificate for a session with a personal trainer! Happy holiday shopping!
