Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the gym is so delightful
Being fit I adore it so
Let my love for it grow, let it grow!
With the holidays right around the corner, and holiday gift-giving season in full swing, let us now begin perusing all of those special offerings for the fitness-obsessed ladies in your life. As with my beauty-gifts series, I have conveniently broken it all down for you by category, to make things a bit easier. Grab your protein shakes this time, boys and girls, for we are about to get physical with my picks of the season.
Welcome to part one of our holiday gift guide! Here we discuss those fit-tech gifts, for the gadget geeks in your life.
Koss Headphones, For the Active Woman
When it comes to my workouts, nothing helps me workout harder than some great tunes. While my gym routine always varies (power-lifting, cardio, and spin are pretty standard), one thing that never changes is the need for a pair of earbuds that actually stay in my ears, no matter what I’m doing. The Koss Flexfit line does just that, as these headphones are not only lightweight and ergonomically designed for woman’s smaller ears, but they also deliver superb sound. The flashy colors don’t hurt, either. All in all, they get a huge thumbs up from me! Find them at your local Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Kmart, and Sears, on sale at a special holiday price of $19.99!
These days, every brand is getting in on the daily fitness tracker game. I’m here to tell you that all the others don’t matter, as the brand new Polar Loop is the one you’ll want to get. Besides being from Polar, which automatically makes it noteworthy and covetable, the Loop is the only tracker that connects to a heart rate monitor sensor, giving an accurate heart rate and calorie expenditure reading. For those who are active and want a better way to track their stats when they aren’t rocking their standard Polars, the Loop is awesome. The Loop retails for $100
ProSupps Supplement Stacks
While this technically isn’t a gadget, ProSupps supplements are a good example of science meets performance in a sports supplement line. From the purest form of protein (TC-F Isolate Whey) to a preworkout concoction that helps you run faster, lift heavier, and go for longer (Hyde), ProSupps is my go-to for anything and everything sports supplement-related. If you are looking for a great stack for a great price, visit the ProSupps site and use code “PSAdina15 for 15% off any stack. You’re welcome.
