Fitness-Themed Holiday Gift Guide 2014

For reasons I don’t quite understand, not everyone is as much of a nutrition/food fanatic as I am. So, as a follow-up to the Nutrition Nerd Gift Guide posted earlier in the week, here are some ideas for the fitness freaks (from yogis to ultra runners and lifters to backpackers) you are shopping for.

2014 GiftGuide_Fitness

1. Folding Yoga Mat [12.99]: Help your jet-setting yoga-enthusiast friend get their vinyassa in, anytime, anywhere! This yoga mat folds up into a compact 9 x 12 x 2 inch grid, perfect for a suitcase. Bonus: when they encounter inevitable travel delays, this mat can be used to help soften a night spent sleeping on the tiled airline terminal floor!

2. Urbanful Bike Lane Safety Light [$29.99]: This ingenious product is not only a bright taillight, but it also uses laser beams to create a bike lane around the active commuter on your list – helping to keep them safe on those dark winter rides home from work!

3. Fuelshaker Classic [$15.00]: Because traditional shaker bottles are so 2012, give the “meat head” in your life the latest & greatest way to consume their post workout protein powder. Dishwasher & freezer safe, the Fuelshaker stores your powder and liquid in separate compartments. At the press of a button, the powder is released and the two are mixed. No DOMS-eliciting manual shaking required!

4. Skratch Lab Hot Sports Drink [$19.50 for resealable bag; single serve pouches also available]: Sometimes it is difficult to make ourselves drink a cold drink while out braving the frigid, wintery weather. Enter Skratch labs Apples & Cinnamon hydration mix, which tastes awesome when mixed with hot water. I tried this product out about a year ago and loved sipping it before and after my snowy workouts. Treat the weather proof athlete you’re shopping for to a full bag, or use the single serving pouches as stocking stuffers!

5. Personalized Workout Journal [$9.99 for one shown]: Whether for a perseon embarking on a new fitness plan or those who have been around the block a few times, everyone needs some motivation! Find a journal with an appropriate motivational quote on the cover, and then customize the inside to fit the needs of the giftee. I suggest writing motivational quotes, quick workout tips/ideas, etc. every few pages. As workouts are logged, your thoughtfulness will be remembered year round!

6. RoadID Personal Identification Gear [$19.99 and up]: No one wants to think something bad could happen while out enjoying their favorite activities, but it’s best to be prepared for those situations. The RoadID is a functional and fashionable way to carry personal and medical information that is accessible to first responders and medical teams, should the need arise. Give your loved ones {and yourself} piece of mind, wherever their adventures and athletic endeavors take them with their own RoadID personal identification gear.

Warmest Wishes for a Happy {and Healthy} Holiday Season!
