There are probably a few people on your list (perhaps even yourself) who have a fitness or weight loss goal for the new year. There are a ton of great fitness related gifts to choose from. Here are some of my favorites (all priced at under $50).
Free Fitness Coaching First, I've got to plug myself just a bit in that I offer FREE fitness coaching to anyone who signs up at my Team Beachbody Web Site. Why not pair this free coaching with one of the great fitness programs from Beachbody like P90X (a favorite for hubbies), ChaLEAN, or Rev Abs.
Fitness DVDs Other new fitness DVDs I love are Jillian Michaels Boost Your Metabolism, The Biggest Loser Boot Camp, Stephanie Vitorino Ultimate Body Fitness, and Workout: One-on-One training with Jackie Warner. All of these programs provide excellent full-body workouts. Available at Amazon.com and many major retailers.
Fitness themed items Zazzle.com has Great T-shirts, mouse pads, tote bags, mugs and more for your favorite fitness. I love the the one for hubbies that says, "I workout because my wife is HOT!" Go hubby, go.
Hula-Hoops Consider joining the hula-hoop craze. Hoopnotica classes are beginning to pop up all over the country. if there is not one in your area, you can get a DVD and hoop at hoopnotica.com.
Reusable Bottle This is a great gift for the fitness enthusiast and helps save the earth keeping as well. There are so many great designs to choose from. You can even get personalized bottles at Greensender.com
DietMinder A great little blank journal that prompts users to enter nutritional and fitness information. Writing down what you eat is great incentive for making healthy choices and helping you or a loved one lose weight. It's easily adaptable to any diet or eating plan and it's available at most major bookstores. This is on my list for sure. Want to send me one? Just kidding.
