Fitness gifts to get in shape
From sophisticated activity trackers and chest-
mounted cameras to massage rollers and yoga toes,
fitness experts say gifts for people trying to get in
shape or stay that way include everything from high-
tech toys to basic workout gear.
Marathoners, yoga instructors and other health and
fitness pros say there is something for everyone hoping
to rev up a workout, or trying to cool it down.
"My big recommendation is one of the many popular
motion sensors," said Shirley Archer, a Florida-based
fitness and wellness expert.
Archer, author of the book Fitness 9 to 5, has used
several fitness bracelets that can track everything from
steps walked to miles run or hours slept.
"They do a great job of raising awareness of how
physically active a person genuinely is," she said.
To boost or fine-tune cardio training, Dr Mark Kelly,
a California-based exercise physiologist, recommends
interval training apps, such as Android s Stopwatch
or Seconds Pro, which track recovery as well as exer-
"You can list the exercise you are doing," said Kelly,
CEO of Principle Centered Health, Inc, which specialises
in fitness assessment and corporate wellness. "HIIT
(High Intensity Interval Training) formats often come
For the tech-averse, Kelly said, a subscription to a
health or fitness magazine will provide both a monthly
exercise reminder and exposure to the latest workout
Connecticut-based running coach Tom Holland
believes a wearable camera, which sells for about $400,
would be the ideal gift for serious runners seeking to
record their races.
He said the GoPro Black Edition Camera, mounted
on a chest harness strap, can record a run up the
Empire State Building or through the Grand Canyon.
For the serious cyclist, Holland suggests a Tacx
virtual reality cycle trainer, which ranges in price from
$350 to $2,000.
"It s a bike trainer that allows you to ride any course
in the world. Incredible technology," he said.
As a runner used to braving cold New England win-
ters, Boston-based running coach Kelly Flynn said all-
weather runners always appreciate light, warm layers
of running wear and a good pair of socks.
Flynn, a coach for Team In Training, the charity
sports endurance programme from the Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society, also suggests giving The Stick, a
massaging roller said to improve muscle circulation,
flexibility, strength and endurance.
Florida-based fitness expert Suzanne Bowen said
a good gift for yoga enthusiasts would be gel toe sep-
arators, which are designed to strengthen foot muscles,
realign toe bones and improve tendon flexibility.
"They stretch your feet," said Bowen, creator of the
BarreAmped DVDs. "Feet are the foundation of our
structure, and we spend too many hours crammed
into our shoes."
Gregory Chertok, a sports psychology consultant
for the American College of Sports Medicine, favours
basic fitness gifts.
"Simply, I love the hand grip," Chertok said. "It s
not a high-tech device, but a strong grip will enhance
performance on lots of strength and resistance training
Most upper body exercises, he added, begin with
gripping a weight or a barbell.
Dr Michele Olson, professor of exercise physiology
at Auburn University in Montgomery, Alabama, said
a good pedometer is an ideal gift for anyone trying
to get fit.
"Pedometers work," she said. "They give sort of
neutral feedback and are simple and not overwhelming
with technology." (Reuters)
