Healthy Christmas Gifts

Holiday shopping can be a stressful time of year for everyone. Instead of the typical sweater or nice bottle of liquor, how about giving your loved ones a healthy gift option? Below, we have listed several!

The BEST Gift (of course): A 3-month or 1-year membership to boot camp or small group training! (Come on, you knew that was coming!) But just think about how much you love it… don’t you want your loved ones to have that same super experience? Benjamin Franklin said it best…”Investing in yourself yields the most interest!”

Healthy Cookbooks – Some of our favorites include 400 Calorie Fix by Liz Vaccariello, and Tosca Reno’s The Eat Clean Diet

A fitness or nutrition assessment.

Advocare! One of our favorites… give the gift of cleanses, energy (spark) and great nutritional value through all the wonderful options Advocare offers.

A fruit of the month club.

Healthy cooking classes. Check out Milwaukee Public Market, or UWM for cooking classes. Whole Foods often has healthy cooking classes as well.

New running shoes (remember Performance Running gives our clients a discount on shoes and apparel).

Weights, mats, and other fitness equipment.

Training DVDs.

A certificate for a massage (elements massage in Whitefish Bay will hook you up with these).

Certificates for time with you as a workout buddy.

A trip that is focused on healthy activities such as hiking, kayaking, skiing, snowboarding, walking, or cycling.

Classes that focus on learning a new active skill… like rock climbing, skiing, or camping.

As you know, some people may be more sensitive about certain gifts. Our suggestion is that if your mother has been struggling with weight issues, buying her a weight watchers coupon may not be the smartest move. However, if someone has expressed interest in getting fit, the above could be given in a tactful and loving manner.
