Top 5 Fitness Gifts

Sparkling lights are on full display, the weather has cooled off (no snow in SD, but I know it’s coming down elsewhere), pigskin playoffs are around the corner, and the season for giving is officially upon us! As the holidays hit just days from now, it’s time to gather your gifts and make the season special for your loved ones.

Wanna know the secret to unforgettable gift giving? Look beyond the material things and give the gift of health. Now THAT’s the gift that just keeps on giving!

As a member of the FQ10 family, I’m writing to you today to share my Top 5 Holiday Gifts available right here at the “Magic Kingdom.”

#5. Apparel
From IMPACT gear to WOW shirts and Under Armour outfits, we’ve got you covered. The best part? Fresh gear leads to extra motivation. It’s a FACT. “If you look good and feel good…you play good!”

Get it here and get it on! Psst.. we even have our best-selling Grey Hoodies still available! Now that’s a gift to ensure the mind AND body is right!

#4. Ascent Protein
While it’s easy to miss an extra workout or two during the festivities, you can help yourself avoid the holiday weight gain by keeping your nutrition in check (of course, a few cheat meals won’t kill you). I’m a huge believer in whey protein within 30-minutes of a great workout. And I always have another protein shake in the evening when my sweet tooth kicks in. This satiates sugar cravings and ensures I’m consuming quality protein, which is great for building muscle and changing body composition. #GameChanger

I often get asked about protein and believe it’s imperative if you truly want to make compositional changes. I recommend approximately 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight. Be sure your protein has low sugar and no additives. I’m a big proponent of Ascent Protein as it meets my needs to fill my body with the “cleanest” foods and supplements available.

#3. TRX Suspension Trainers
You know I’m partial to black and yellow, and the TRX is a game-changing piece of equipment for any fitness fanatic.

Plus, I know many of you love to travel, and this puppy packs perfectly in a carry-on for a killer sweat session when you’re on-the-go.

#2. WOW Books
How about gifting a little motivation and inspiration? Signed WOW Books are going out the door like hotcakes and I want to make sure you get yours (even if my hand’s getting a little tired :)). If print isn’t for you, we’ve got an audio version recorded by yours truly. How about that for a little WOW on demand?

Your family, friends, and coworkers will love it and it may even change their lives! 🙂

#1. Gift Certificates
From R&R to top-notch training sessions, you can’t go wrong with gift cards. They can be used for massages, FST (Fascial Stretch Therapy), personal training, group training, and more. This is what I’m talking about when I say give the gift of health!

As a matter of fact, if you purchase a gift certificate for MASSAGE THERAPY between today and December 24th (by 12 NOON), you will receive an additional 30-minute gift certificate for massage for FREE, or you can get a 90-minute MASSAGE gift certificate for the price of a 60-minute MASSAGE. #MuchKneaded

As you’re checking your list twice, be sure you have the aforementioned gifts wrapped and ready to go. NOW is the perfect time to “wrap” up your shopping (pun intended) and ensure you are getting your loved ones a gift that will keep on giving!

Happy holidays!
