Who out there has some friends and/or family who are in to fitness? Maybe they are in the middle of a healthy transformation, maybe they are in the maintaining stage, or maybe they are at the beginning stages! We all know that a popular New Year’s Resolution that TONS of people make is to get healthy and lose weight. Do you have a friend or family member who already made the proclamation to do just that? I’ve actually been approached by multiple people in the past few weeks on ideas for their friends, spouses, and other family members who are either in to health and fitness, or would like to make a change. So, I’ve compiled a list (in random order) of must haves for anyone who is looking for just that!
If you need something small and inexpensive, then headbands are a good choice. I prefer the Nike and Under Armor sets. I usually like the thicker ones because they seem to hold my hair back a little better 🙂
6. Workout Mats
When I first started with home fitness, I always went to the same spot in the basement to workout. The carpet was fairly new at the time and within 30 days there was a big worn patch! So, I invested in a pack of Gold’s Gym mats. It is actually called the 6-Piece Puzzle Mat. Six pieces was enough for me but if you need a bigger space then two packs may be needed. Once 6 piece set was only $20 at Walmart and they hold up great!
7. Clean Eating Books
Ok so if you have a friend or family member who is really in to nutrition and eating healthy, then you can’t go wrong with a clean eating book. There are TON’S out there. My personal favorites are the books by author Tosca Reno. She does a great job at explaining clean eating and her recipes are fantastic!
8. Fitness Program
Of course I’m going to have fitness programs on my list! I love that I can control when I want to work out without having to leave the house or pay for child care. In addition, doing workouts that are 30 minutes or less is a bonus too! Some of the programs that I highly recommend are the 21 Day Fix, PiYo, P90X3, T25, and of course, Beachbody’s newest program, Insanity Max 30! If you are wanting to look in to a fitness program for a friend or family member, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure out what the best choice would be.
Lots of people think that Shakeology is just an expensive protein shake when in fact, it’s not! It is a nutritionally dense wellness shake that contains your daily dose of nutrients. It has the proper carb to protein ratio to keep you feeling fuller, longer. As a result, Shakeology can be used as a complete meal replacement that provides you with energy, curbs your cravings, helps with weight loss, and more! You get 30 meals out of one supply and on top of all of that, it’s all natural! You don’t have to worry about artificial sweeteners that lots of other shakes have. There are regular flavors, Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Greenberry; as well as Vegan flavors (dairy free and does not contain whey protein), Chocolate Vegan, and Tropical Strawberry.
10. If you really want to impress your friend or family member, you can get something that’s called a Beachbody Challenge Pack. A Challenge Pack is a month supply of Shakeology, a fitness program of choice, discounted shipping, and all sorts of other goodies! You actually get this at a discounted price when you purchase Shakeology and a fitness program together! Plus, results can be entered for a chance to win $500+! The December promotion just so happens to be Shaun T’s newest released program, Insanity Max 30.
