Tis the season for buying holiday gifts for our friends and family. I wanted to share some of my favorite fitness “must have’s” for all of the fitness lovers on your list. You may even want to grab a few for yourself!
1. Fixate Cookbook-This cookbook was written by Autumn Calabrese (the trainer who developed the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme programs). I have been incorporating the 21 Day Fix Extreme eating plan and workouts into my daily routine and this cookbook has been a life saver! It contains 101 healthy recipes that are all designed to be used with the portion control containers from the program. Some of the recipes are also vegan, vegetarian, paleo, and gluten free. Even if you do not follow the 21 Day Fix program, it’s still a great cookbook full of delicious recipes for the whole family (My boys love the Creamy Chicken Salad and Broccoli Mac and Cheese). Trust me…there’s a little something for everyone! If you want to purchase the Fixate cookbook for yourself, you can use this link. The retail price is $19.95.
2.Momentum Jewelry– I absolutely love this inspirational jewelry! The Motivate Wraps, FootNotes, suede cuffs, headbands, earrings, and necklaces have motivational sayings that help to inspire you to be healthy and motivated throughout the day. All of the handcrafted jewelry is comfortable, washable, lightweight, non-tarnishing and made in the USA. Not only do they have amazing fitness inspired jewelry, but Momentum Jewelry donate 5% of their profits to the national effort, Action For Healthy Kids, which works with schools to fight the national epidemic of childhood obesity by teaching kids to live healthy and active lives. I love this!! Head on over to Momentum Jewelry to purchase your favorite fitness enthusiast (or yourself!) one of these inspiring pieces (They make great stocking stuffers too!)
3.Bamr Bands -BAMR (Bad Ass Mother Runner) bands are non slip fitness headbands that are comfortable, stylish and affordable (all priced between $8 and $12). Who doesn’t love a new workout headband?!? Another great stocking stuffer idea! Head on over to Bamr Bands to check out these headbands and the new ear warmers that Katie has recently released! You can use the code Nicole10 for a 10% discount on your purchase!
4. Mpow Cheetah Blutetooth Wireless Headphones– For years I used earbuds and an armband to listen to music when I worked out. I was constantly struggling with the cord and my earbuds would often get tangled and fall out while I was running or doing a HIIT workout. Then I discovered these bluetooth wireless headphones. Life changing! I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on headphones and then I found these. They work great and they always stay firmly and comfortably in place. I paid $25 for these on Amazon and they are one of my “must have’s”
5. At Home Workout Programs– As a busy mom, I don’t have a lot of time to spend working out at the gym. I started using at home workouts to lose weight and tone up. I love that I can reach my fitness and weight loss goals from the comfort of my own home and during blocks of time that work for me and my busy schedule. I also LOVE helping busy women achieve a healthy and fit lifestyle for themselves and their families. If you, or the fitness lover on your list, are looking to lose weight, tone up and develop healthy eating habits, then my January Online Bootcamp or New Year New You Challenge would be a perfect gift. Both groups begin on January 4th. Please contact me for more information on my different fitness programs or order popular fitness DVD programs such as PiYo, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, T25, Insanity Max 30, Hammer and Chisel, here.
6. Motivational Water Bottle- I absolutely love this product! I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time meeting my water intake goal for the day. That is why the Motivational Bottle is so great! It has the hours of the day (starting at 8am and ending at 6pm) marked on the bottle. There are even reminders to refill by lunchtime and to be finished drinking by 6pm. This serves as a great visual reminder to stay on track with your water consumption. The goal is to drink 1 glass of water per hour. If you refill your Motivational Bottle 2 times it is equal to 7 glasses of water. One more glass of water with dinner and you are done for the day! These water bottles not only motivate you to drink more water, but they are labeled with great motivational messages such as “Strive For Progress Not Perfection”, “Sore Today Strong Tomorrow” and “Goals Are Achieved One Step At A Time”. Who doesn’t need a little motivation every day?! The bottles are all BPA free too. Grab yours here
I hope you found a few new things to add to your shopping list! Wishing you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season!
