The Final 5 Last Minute Fitness Gifts for the Holidays!

6.) Supplements that Work: Protein Powders, Fish Oil, Multi-Vitamin

I have a number of people lose pounds and pounds of fat. In my journey, I have found three supplements to be key in the optimal fat loss program: protein powders, fish oil, and multi-vitamin supplements.

Protein powders provide great liquid workout nutrition and a convenient meat alternative for on-the-go snacking. For a protein powder, look for a brand low in sugar and carbohydrates and one containing whey (fast absorbing proteins). Click for a Great Protein Powder

Fish oil, or more appropriately entitled an essential fatty acid (EFA) supplement, is critical to providing key omega 3’s to maximize overall health, performance, and body composition.

A multi-vitamin provides keys vitamins and minerals that are tough to obtain unless your diet is near picture perfect. The way I look at it is, take it as insurance to cover your bases. Be sure to choose a multi-vitamin supplement that is made from whole foods rather than synthetic materials, in addition to being made specifically for your gender.

7.) Sport-Specific Gift

This one’s pretty basic: if you want to give a great gift to an athlete then get them something unique that compliments their sport, whether it be fitness equipment, apparel, or both.

8.) Fitness Book or Subscription to Fitness Magazine

Everybody need bedtime or bathroom reading baby! If you have just read a good fitness book that you know a friend or family member would benefit from, hook them up with their own copy. You might want to go one step further and get them a magazine subscriptions.

9.) Wireless MP3 Headset

This one’s a bit pricey, but man is it worth the unparalleled listening pleasure and convenience. It’s this simple: drag and drop your workout MP3’s onto the headset using a USB cable and then press play and rock out while you workout. There are no annoying wires to deal with and the headphones are comfortably, yet firmly locked on your head so they never fall off and you never miss a beat.

10.) A Gift Card to a Fitness Boot Camp or Personal Training

Boot camps provide a fun and exciting team environment that guarantee the same results than one-on-one personal training for only a fourth of the cost… it’s a total no-brainer.

In regards to a boot camp, look for one with tons of social proof (client testimonials, especially in the form of pictures and video) to make sure they have a solid reputation and a bunch of raving fans of people just like you. Plus, any good boot camp worth its weight offers free trials and money-back guarantees to all newcomers because they are so confident their program works that you’ll more than likely continue after a test-drive, This way there is typically no risk on your part… besides getting you butt kicked, in a good way ;)

So join a fitness boot camp with at least one other friend or family member or buy a boot camp gift card to give to your loved ones. As a boot camp instructor myself, its true with group training that clients will generally get better results and stick with it longer when they embark on a fitness journey with others as they have accountability and social support.

However if you think a fitness boot camp might not be the thing you need then maybe a gift certificate to a personal training is. Where you can get the personal attention you may need to reach your goals.
