Holiday Health: Give Get-Fit Gifts
Holiday ideas for creative get fit gifts.
Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) November 24, 2004
ÂTis the season to celebrate -- and a time to eat! Most of us gain a few pounds during the holiday season. With family dinners, holiday parties and gift baskets loaded with goodies, who thinks of staying fit?
Instead of giving a pyramid of chocolate, a basket of tempting treats or a bottle of bubbly this year, why not be different? Give your loved ones a Holiday Health Kit to start out the New Year right.
With so many inexpensive or low-cost fitness products available, itÂs easy to combine several items into a customized Get-Fit Gift. Louise Roach, marketing director at SnowPack, a New Mexico-based company that manufactures ice therapy kits, has several suggestions:
ÂIf you have someone on your Christmas list who likes to walk or run, think of items like a pedometer, a gift certificate to your local running specialty store, energy bars, a water bottle, a portable CD player, books on stretching, sunscreen, and lip balm. Plus a SnowPack ice pack just in case they overdo it. Put it all together in a nifty duffel bag and you have a very thoughtful gift.
ÂMaybe someone you know needs motivation to get up and get going. Why not give a Âhome gym in a bagÂ? A few suggestions to include are: free weights, a jump rope, resistance bands, workout videos, a yoga mat, a BMI scale, a heart rate monitor, sport drinks, and protein bars. Of course every home gym needs a SnowPack to take care of strained muscles. Then wrap it all up in a bright tote bag for giving.
ÂSeveral other themes for Get-Fit Gifts could be biking, hiking and backpacking. A visit to your local athletic store can offer many ideas such as a day pack, water carrying system, socks, hats, compass (or GPS system), utility tool, first aid kit, a spa product and destination books. Consider including a SnowPack + SportCover for post-workout aches and pains.Â
SnowPack also offers two Body-n-Ice Kits that make perfect Get-Fit Gifts by themselves. TheyÂre a great idea for soccer families and active Baby Boomers, plus everyone in between. SnowPack kits include several SnowPack ice packs and a specially designed SportCover, packaged in a take-along insulated tote for ice therapy on the go. When youÂre getting in shape, nothing works better on an achy back, sore knees, and painful legs like a SnowPack.
