10 Best New Years Gifts For the Fitness Junkie In Your Life

10 Best New Years Gifts For the Fitness Junkie In Your Life

Fitness junkies are probably the easiest people to shop for! I am not just saying this, there are all kinds of things out there on the market for the cross trainer in every circle. You just have to think out of the box and try not to bring the same present as everyone else.

We compiled a list of the ten best and appealing new years gifts for fitness junkies.

1. A Pair Of Running Shoes

You can’t go wrong with these. Workout junkies can never have enough running shoes. Get them a new pair, and you will be in their thoughts every time they go for a jog. Focus on getting a pair that’s ideal for running, taking into consideration heel support, cushioning, water resistance, weight, and the heel-to-toe drop.

Do not worry about the jargon. Just ask your retailer for a pair that contains these details. You can always rest easy with renowned brands like Nike, Adidas, New Balance, and Saucony.

2. TRX Bands

The word TRX bands come from Total Body Resistance Exercises. If the person has dumbbells, kettle bells, a treadmill and a stationary bike, this is the missing link. TRX bands do wonders for the tummy, and they work arms too.

So, if they have been talking about upping their game in the abs department, these bands will leave them in your debt for a while (or until next year when we give you an exciting new list).

3. The FitBit Charge

This activity tracker is the perfect gift for those who are obsessed with data. The FitBit keeps track of every movement you make, it is super light and easy to wear. It counts the steps, alerts you when you stay idle for too long (60 minutes), acts as an alarm clock, has a feature for telling time, the screen is backlit, and, of course, it counts calories. It also monitors your sleeping patterns. Does it get any better? With those features, this gift will never be out of style.

4. Subscription For A Personal Trainer

Nothing beats working out with a professional trainer. They know what your problem areas are and they take the proper measurements to know your levels of fitness. They ensure that you are working out in line with your goals.

The most memorable gift you would give someone this year is a subscription for a trainer with FitnessTrainer.com. It doesn’t matter which part of the country the receiver of the gift is in. They will connect them with a coach in their area.

5. Hylete Cross-Training Convertible Backpack

Everyone needs a backpack that won’t give up on them every few months. This particular brand is the Swiss-army knife of gym backpacks. It has compartments for everything you could think of; wet clothes, your laptop, a temperature controlled compartment for your meals, your phone, shoes, everything. It is made of heavy-duty nylon, so it has the endurance of seasoned gym-goers. This thoughtful gift will win you a place of honor in their lives.

6. Protein Powder

Anyone who lifts heavy weights will tell you that protein supplements are their best friends. They would rather run out of food than be out of their protein powders (em..kidding. Food is a basic need). The good thing about these supplements is that they have a long shelf life, so you don’t have to worry about them going bad before they are used. Whey protein is a winner.

7. A Mountain Bike

If they work out at the gym every day, then you could give them a bike that gets them outdoors whenever the weather allows. “A bike is a great way to engage in an activity together. You can get one for them and another one for you. You can then challenge each other over the weekends,” says James at Bike Ambition. You can get a great bike from brands such as Cannondale, Yeti, and Ibis.

8. A weekend at the parlor

Even heavy lifters and cross fit queens need a weekend of pampering. They probably need it to soothe those sore muscles. You can get them a spa weekend in a place that offers deep tissue massage. Go for that or get a regular Swedish and hot stone massage. It’s their prerogative, but you will have given them the opportunity to be spoiled.

9. Thermos Connected Hydration Bottle

Staying hydrated cannot be over emphasized. This bottle reminds even the busiest person to take water. It calculates your water intake goals, measures the temperature of the water, and recommends how much you are to take for the day.

It syncs with your FitBit account and iPhone to alert you whenever you are due for hydration. With this bottle, even the busiest techie will meet their water intake goals.

10. Skullcandy Earbuds

Who doesn’t love some music as they workout to stay motivated? Get them a pair of sweat free ear buds so that they can pump up the jam to some funky music. You can be sure that those ear buds will be treasured until they totally wear out.  Skullcandy has a variety of cool colors.

It’s A Wrap!

There you have it. I told you it would not be so hard to find the appropriate gift, didn’t I? Now go and end someone’s year in style.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
