It’s that time of year again – the holidays. The merry time of year you must wrack your brain in order to find the perfect gift for the special people in your life. Why not give them the gift of fitness? It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving! We’ve rounded up a few creative fitness gifts to get for the people in your life who mean the most – approved by Los Angeles personal trainers, of course.
With LaloFit DVDs, good health is just a squat, lunge, and a jump away! These DVDs are great because they don’t require much, just a set of dumbbells and about on hour per day in the comfort of your own home. It’s the next best thing to having a Los Angeles personal trainer come to your house, except you don’t have to clean first or hide all your unhealthy food.
A Mobile Speaker
How are you supposed to get into the fitness zone without some tunes? Answer: You can’t! For friends who want to crush their workouts while listening to the Rocky soundtrack, a mobile mini Bluetooth speaker will make the perfect gift.
“You tend to work harder when listening to music,” says Los Angeles personal trainer Lalo Fuentes, “as long as the tempo of the music is between 120 and 140 beats per minutes, you’ll be in the zone for maximum effect.” There are a few options out there but one of Lalo's favorite is the JBL Charge 3.
A Fitness Tracker
Fitness trackers are great because they provide real-time movement statistics needed for a really great workout. Plus, they’re handy for tracking information about your entire day, just not the time you exercise. These are great not only for the fitness fanatics in your life but anyone you want to inspire to exercise more.
A Dual Purpose Jacket
Workout clothes have come a long way – people actually wear them for fashion now! So impress the fitness fan in your life by buying them an awesome piece of workout wear that is one part reflective running jacket (with a secure pocket and reflectors) and one part stylish top that can be worn anywhere.
If you’re looking to get something a bit more heartfelt, then look at a piece of inspirational jewelry. If you have a friend who is training for their first Ironman or simply starting a new fitness routine with a Los Angeles personal trainer, then it’s a great gesture to show support. Plus, they’re pretty – and that always wins points with the ladies!
There are few things better than using a foam roller on sore, tired muscles at the end of a workout. Just ask your fit friends! Foam rollers come in all shapes and sizes, so find just the right one for that someone special in your life and they’ll praise your name each time they use it.
Fitness gifts are great for almost every single person in your life because it shows support for their continued health and wellness. They may start out with something small, like a fitness tracker to track daily steps, and then move on to working with their very own personal trainer! You could change a person’s life with a simple gift! How cool is that?
