Consider this the ultimate answer to your head-scratching hunt for the perfect gift. You' ve stumbled upon the final solution.

I' ve tracked down the best deals, the highest-quality products, and the most unique, health-conscious gifts your significant gift-recipient isn' t going to get anywhere else - and provided you with a range of options from inexpensive, custom-designed energy bars to gold-standard laboratory performance testing packages.

You' ll find everything for the person who just wants to shed a few pounds of fat, to the coveted tools of a top triathlete. So consider the following items the gold-standard for giving the gift of both creativity and health. You can click on any of the items in the list, and they will open in a new window, so you' ll always be able to access this list later.


1. Gymstick Originating in Finland as a popular exercise tool at health clubs and homes, the Gymstick is an incredibly versatile and portable exercise device that can be used for fat loss, lean body toning and beginner to advanced fitness. As you can see from the picture, it is comprised of a flexible fiberglass stick, soft foam hand grip and pair of latex rubber resistance tubes with durable fabric loops at both ends. I use my Gymstick three times per week for 30-45 minutes: once for a core workout, once for a toning workout, and once for a sports performance workout!

Here¹s why I recommend the Gymstick: -It¹s highly portable, making it great for home and travel based workoutsŠ -It is perfect for muscle toning, but also can build strength and enhance sports performanceŠ -By simply twisting the stick, you can instantly increase or decrease resistance -It can be included in a high-calorie burning, metabolism-boosting workout OR a slower, toning and strength-building routines

-Compared to other pieces of home exercise equipment, it is inexpensive and easy-to-use! Each Gymstick includes a stylish fabric cover and carry bag, a GymstickGymstick Workout DVD (incl. 3 workout programs). Just click on Gymstick for the best deal on the internet, which includes FREE shipping to anywhere in the USA.

Instruction and workout poster (including 18 basic movements), and a 60 minute video.
