Cyber Monday: 5 handy health and fitness gifts to give this holiday

Have you ever felt overwhelmed at the very thought of all the holiday shopping you still have left to do? I know I have.The holidays are filled with fun, joy, and laughter, but also a lot of the time, STRESS!! To help simplify your shopping list this year, and to help save time and money from mailing your Christmas presents at the post office, here are five great health and fitness inspired gifts to get for your loved ones……or even add to your own Christmas wish list.

  1. The Fitbit Alta HR

This activity tracker can monitor your heart rate and measure how many calories you burn each day. Use the different zones (fat burn, cardio, and peak) to match your workout intensity with your fitness and weight loss goals. Track your daily steps and minutes of physical activity. Use this tracker to help you stay motivated in your fitness.

2. Wii fit game with balance board

The Wii fit game (Wii console sold separately) is a great and fun way to get your kids active at home under the guise of playing a video game. It’s a clever way to make fitness more fun for your kids using a medium they already enjoy. A sedentary lifestyle has been one of the big contributors to the obesity epidemic for both adults and children. Get your whole family active this holiday season with the Wii fit.

3. Stainless steel insulated water bottle

I love stainless steel insulated water bottles because they do such a fabulous job of keeping your water cool and refreshing. If you or your loved one have been trying to drink more water or know that you need to, this is a great gift idea. Regardless of the beverage you’ll be putting in the water bottle, it has the capability of keeping cold beverages cold for 24 hours and hot beverages hot for 12 hours. Trust me, after using one of these, you will never want to go back to a regular water bottle.

4.  Instant pot and cookbook

This newly popular device actually features 7 kitchen appliances in 1 including: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker and warmer, saute, and steamer. This is a great way to cook healthy at home meals 70 percent faster to help simplify your already busy lifestyle. You can even cook some dishes by simply adding ingredients to the pot and pushing the appropriate feature (for example- soup, rice, meat/stew, and poultry to name a few). Use the cookbook to try fast, easy, and healthy recipes at home.

5. Air Fryer

The air fryer is a kitchen appliance that fries food with 75 percent less fat than a deep fryer.  Fried foods should be eaten less often due to the higher calorie and saturated fat content, however it’s possible to enjoy fried foods every once in a while and still maintain a healthy lifestyle. Use the air fryer to enjoy warm and crispy french fries straight from your home without the worry of getting off track with your weight loss goals.

I hope this week’s post will make your holiday shopping a little easier and healthier. If you enjoyed this week’s post, please comment and like below.
