1.Mountain Bike 

A great way to get outdoor exercise.

Want something indoors? For in-home motivation machines with top-rated quality based on Consumer Reportsclick here.

2. Dumbbell

Dumbbells offer many healthy benefits including muscle toning and strength training. For in-home exercisers, this adjustable set is space saving, adjustable (makes it easy to change them from lighter to heavier), and the quality and ratings is top notch.

3. Digital Work Tunes Earmuff/Headphones

Ideal for snowblowing, mowing the lawn, raking leaves or taking a hike.

4. Snow Goggles

Great for all types of outdoor activity. I like them for snowshoeing, doing snowga, and preventing dry eyes when I’m removing snow from our roof, driveway, etc., especially on windy days or blizzard like conditions.

5. Foam Rollers – Soft for Beginners, High Density for IntermediatesMaster of Muscle for Experienced or the 3-in-1 for All-levels.

Foam rollers are one of the best ways to get rid of tight muscle aches and pains.

6. Stability Ball(anti-burst). And sibling, Stability Ball Chair

These stability balls the safest you can find. We’ve used them for years in our fitness studio.  The stability ball chair is great for posture improvement by developing core musculature while working at a desk or work station.

7. LED Headlamp Flashlight – Water Resistant

Perfect for outdoor night activities. I like the headlamp for jogging at night. It can also be used for sledding, shoveling, walking the dog, hiking, etc.

8. Snowshoes for Men, for Women, and for Kids

A wonderful way to exercise in the snow. Some researchers believe that you can burn more calories snowshoeing than you can walking, running, or cross country skiing at the same pace.

9. Digital Body Fat Scale w/ 400 lb. Capacity & Auto Recognition Technology

This is the easiest way to track your body weight and body fat percentage .

10. Zero Belly Cookbook: 150+ Delicious Recipes to Flatten Your Belly, Turn Off Your Fat Genes, and Help Keep You Lean for Life!

Research shows that cutting calories, not exercise, plays a bigger role in maintaining weight loss. The new Zero Belly cookbook makes it easy and tasty.

11. Carhartt Men’s Rugged Cargo Pant Relaxed Fit

OK. I admit it. I did not want to take off these pants. I love them so much because they are spacious, comfortable, durable and perfect for outdoor and indoor activity. I’ve never had a pair of pants I’ve loved more. My clients are tired of hearing about these pants.

12. Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband

My clients love fitbits. As a health coach, I’m a fan of any product that supports accountability for living a healthier lifestyle. The fitbit does just that.

13. Becoming the Iceman – Pushing Past Perceived Limits

I used to dread cold weather.  But, I’m a fan of health improvement and human potential. By roughly following the instructions in this book, I improved my ability to withstand the cold with a different type of fitness training. Also improved my immune system (haven’t been sick in over a year and a half), and strengthened my cardiovascular system to lower my blood pressure to 103/60.  All by by starting with just 30 seconds of training a day as taught in this book!

14. Pumptime Clock

It’s always PUMP TIME when you look at this clock. Just like a fitbit sets a mindset to be active, having a PUMP TIME clock sets the mode for a workout room. We have one in our studio and clients think it’s really cool.

15. Sport Performance Trainer Mat – Self-Guided Exercise Mat

Sometimes it’s nice not to have to think during a workout. This mat takes the thinking out of exercise.  It offers some nice exercise guidance, and it’s durable and easy to clean.

16. Smartwool Sweater for Men and Women

This sweater is my favorite.  It’s soft, comfortable, not itchy and ideal for outdoor activity. It breathes well and my wife says I look cute in it.

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU DID IT! YOU FOUND ALL 16 GIFTS!
