These Fab Fitness Gifts Will Up your Workout Game!
When I recently reached my 40’s and after twins, I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I can no longer only work out once a month and then spend the other days on my butt, eating whatever I want and knocking back a bottle of wine in one sitting. Back in the day, I was lucky enough to be living in New York City, where I could easily count my daily commute of walking to and from work and around town as exercise. Sadly, those days are long gone. (PS- I am holding back tears and singing Boys to Men’s “Yesterday” as I type this…) Welp, I’ve pulled up my big girl Spanx, and I’ve finally found a fitness routine that works for me, and all of these products below have helped tremendously on my new journey to health and happiness. Ya gotta do it, people…you just do.
Bala Bangles –
My twin sister, who’s always been excellent at keeping up with her responsibilities of staying healthy and working out, sent me these genius bangles, and I am now obsessed. Thanks, Meems! They are so fashionable and adjust to fit and size. They honestly look like statement jewelry and you’ll want to wear them around when you’re not working up a sweat…waaaay better than those bulky velcro weights.
Kate Spade Apple Watch Band –
I do enjoy classic black but I also love to add patterns, textures and color when possible. I also love animal prints (in moderation…no offense Carol…or maybe, yes, actually some offense Carol) Kate Spade makes super cute silicone apple watch bands, when you’re feeling spunky and in need of a few pops of color. These come not only in leopard but in other super cute patterns. Just wipe it down after you get your sweat on.
Vitamix Blender –
I’ve decided to swap some meals out for high-protein, low-fat smoothies and It’s made a huge difference! I didn’t realize how delicious smoothies can be when you have the right ingredients and most importantly, a good blender. I absolutely love my Vitamix! It effortlessly pulverizes ice and other tough ingredients like raw almonds, which are included in almost all of my smoothie recipes.
Tangram Smart Rope-
The Tangram Smart Rope LED is a modern and evolved take on the quintessential cardio workout. With thoughtfully designed handles that ensure smooth motion and LED lights that display your fitness data in mid-air as you work out, this is definitely not your average playground jump rope. Sync your sessions with Tangram’s mobile fitness platform to help you track and improve your performance! I love this!
Simple Modern Summit Water Bottle –
This water bottle keeps me hydrated, and the water stays cool throughout my workout. It’s easy to clean, doesn’t spill, and the straw folds town when you’re toting it to and fro. It also comes in super cool designs and colors. This bottle is a perfect and essential gift for any fitness buff in your life. This bottle is made from stainless steel with double-walled and vacuum-sealed insulation so it keeps your drink at its optimum temperature for hours.
I also have the insulated tumbler cup for all-day water sippin’! Buy them here:
Massage Gun –
My Mother-In-Law bought one of these for us, and when I first saw it I laughed (like, in a scared way.) But the relief it brings is no joke. It packs a punch literally with its powerful deep muscle treatment yet is surprisingly ultra-quiet. This gun works deep to melt away tension and release soreness, empowering you to care for your body daily.
Pendelton Yoga Mat-
If you love Pendelton’s beautiful Southwestern designs, then you need this yoga mat in your life. It’s lightweight, yet provides substantial cushion for stretching, yoga, pilates or mediation. This mat is a great gift for any Yogi in your life.
