As summer approaches, a change comes over many of us. We find ourselves more active. Some may be walking their dogs more frequently, others may be running a triathlon. Then there’s a group of people who just love fitness. It’s a part of their lives and you associate them and fitness together. That’s why gifts for the fitness enthusiast are such a great idea. Whether is for a birthday or during Christmastime, fitness gifts are practical and thoughtful.
Smart Gifts For Fitness
Strength training has become as appealing as cardiovascular fitness these days. Strength training builds muscle, speeds up your metabolism, and increases concentration. A versatile gift such as these weights (pictured above) allow the person to change from one pound of resistance to two, with just a few turns.
In 2011, the federal government conducted a study on leisure activities. About 17 percent of women and 20 percent of men exercise daily. The average amount of exercise for both of those groups is over 1.5 hours a day. That’s a lot of sweat, especially in the summer. These days, fitness clothes are made to enhance an active lifestyle. That’s why moisture-wicking clothes are ideal gifts for the fitness enthusiast.
Strong Mind, Strong Body Fitness Gifts
Some love the idea of fitness but need to take things at a slower pace. Activities like yoga and pilates focus on a mind and body balance ideal of fitness. For those who are injured or can’t take high-impact workouts, these activities strengthen your core and take the impact off of your joints. Whether it’s a person trying out a new workout or one who has been doing these workouts for years, this pilates mat/dvd combo is a great choice for fitness lovers. Made from an environmentally-friendly material, this reversible and non-toxic, which is a huge bonus for health-conscious and fitness-oriented individuals.
