This month is indeed a time for gift giving, family get togethers and eating. Here are some great fitness present ideas that will allow your friends and family (and you of course – because you deserve a little something as well) to enjoy those holiday meals with a little less guilt!
1. Polar Activity Loop Fitness Band – $94.95
For anyone that wants to monitor and track their daily activity, calories burned & steps taken, this is the perfect gift. Cheaper than the Nike Fuelband, the Polar Activity Loop is waterproof, compatible with Polar H6 and H7 Bluetooth Smart heart rate sensors and syncs with the Polar Flow Mobile app. It’s more than a pedometer, it’s a trainer on the go.
2. Rumble Roller Beastie Hook – $27.95
Know someone with a sore back? This is a great present for sports players, people that work on their feet or anyone that needs to get rid of some knots. The Beastie Hook was created to conveniently massage your upper back, shoulders, neck and other difficult-to-reach body parts. It allows you to massage these areas while you’re in a comfortable and relaxed upright position.
3. The Rumble Roller Foam Roller – $49.95
Similarly for people who want to bring the massage therapist home, the rumble roller is a great present for people will more severe back pains. The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist. As you roll over the top of the RumbleRoller, the bumps continuously knead the contours of your body, gently stretching soft tissue (muscle and fascia) in multiple directions. This action erodes trigger points, helps restore flexibility, and brings quick relief to common types of muscular pain. By design, the RumbleRoller’s bumps are firmer than muscle tissue, but much softer than bone, so they deflect out of the way if they contact your spine or other bony protrusions.
4. Tanita Inronman Body Composition Scale – $119.99
More than just a scale, this gift measures body fat %, body water %, muscle mass, basal metabolic rate, and physique rating. For those who are serious about getting fit or are already there, this is a great monitoring tool. Just be sure to give it to the right person, not everyone wants a scale 🙂
5. The Balance Cushion – $24.95
For those recovering from an injury or just looking to develop strength, this is the perfect gift. The inflatable cushion provides stability and develops core strength. It provides support in the back and lower lumbar regions and is a great training tool for balance and leg exercises. The smooth side releases stretching pressure while the nubby side offers a massage effect and best of all this product is lightweight and portable.
