Christmas can leave all of our jeans feeling a little too tight. It’s no surprise when we indulge in so much food over the Christmas period. Spare a thought for the fitness fanatics in your life. Christmas can be a hard time for people who love to keep fit. No one wants to be the one missing out on that tasty food, but it doesn’t take long for the weight to start piling on! Why not make the battle to lose the extra weight easier by buying the fitness fanatic in your life something to help in their exercise journey? These ideas are sure to go down well.
GET THEM SOME NEW KIT
What better way to help shed the Christmas pounds than buying some fitness equipment? It can be hard, when you’re not familiar with fitness, to get this right. Do a little research and find out about the best home gyms available. Your fitness fanatic is sure to know their stuff, so don’t cut corners! If you’re at a loss, try and get some hints about which types of equipment they use already. It can help if you know what they have. You don’t want to get them a double of anything, after all! This can also help you know the kind of workout they most enjoy.
Most fitness fanatics already have a gym membership, but if not, this could be a fantastic gift. Most gyms offer membership lasting the year. Why not ensure your fitness friend has somewhere to get fit by buying them a membership that lasts? This is a gift that keeps on giving, and they’re sure to appreciate it! Again, try and gain some insight into their gym habits. Make sure they don’t already have a gym membership. Most people have a favorite gym, too, so make sure you’re buying a membership to the right one.
SUBSCRIPTION TO A FITNESS MAGAZINE
If you’re unsure what your friend already has, why not get them a subscription to their favorite fitness magazine? Again, this is a gift that will keep on giving throughout the year. The fitness fight is an ongoing one, after all. Receiving a monthly magazine could be the perfect thing to give your friend the boost they need.
BUY THEM A PERSONAL TRAINER
Personal trainers are a rare treat that few of us indulge in. Christmas is the perfect time for buying your friend a luxury they wouldn’t buy themselves. Research personal trainers in your area and see which one would be the best fit for your friend. Then decide when you want to book the sessions. If possible, book for January so that your friend can start the year right! Don’t think that your friend is too far into their fitness journey for a personal trainer. These sessions can be fantastic, no matter what your level you’re at. Your friend is sure to appreciate the luxury. You never know, they might work out a fitness regime they hadn’t considered before!
