10 Holiday Gifts for Fitness Lovers From Autumn Calabrese
This holiday season, I want to help you get in shape with Country Heat, 80 Day Obsession (coming soon!) and my cooking show with my brother Bobby: FIXATE, a Fix-approved cooking show available on Beachbody On Demand. But I know you’ve also got shopping to do for all your loved ones, so here’s my guide to holiday gifts for your fitness-minded friends and family.
Nike Pegasus Shoes
These are my favorite Nikes—I wear them ALL the time. They’re comfortable andsupportive. The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus is a good all-around training shoe. They’re light, they support my arch and my lateral movement, and there’s a lot of cushion. Plus, they come in all different colors! I love them so much I have several pairs in my closet.
Yes, this is a pricey gift, but for a fitness lover, there’s so much that it can do to help you track progress and reach your goals! I love all the new technology Beachbody has that pairs up with the Apple Watch. The Watch can now sync up with Beachbody On Demand, allowing users to see their heart rate and calories burned in real time on the app.
It will also store this data for you so you can track your progress over time. For people who don’t need all the extra Apple Watch features, the Beachbody On Demand & Wahoo TICKR X (heart rate monitor) bundle also makes a great gift. You get a one-year BOD membership and the TICKR X, which continuously monitors your heart rate, calories and motion, all for just $149.95.
Autumn Calabrese for Beachbody – Lifestyle Collection
I designed this collection with a bit of a beach theme in mind. Everything is soft, cozy, and comfortable enough to lounge around in all day, but still cute enough to wear out and about. My favorite pieces for the ladies are the lounge pants and the “I Do It For the Likes” tank for a little attitude! For the guys, it’s the Team AC XXI T-shirts (and for the ladies, too!), and the super comfy Tough Guy Sweats.
Fitness Gift Bag
I’m a big fan of a bunch of functional little gifts to make up one big gift. A mini foam rollerthat someone can travel with is great for working out the kinks no matter where you are. I always have a tennis ball in my gym bag to roll out the arches of my feet.
For spots that need a little extra work, mini resistance bands add a lot of variety and challenge to your workout. Plus, a notebook for tracking not only your workout progress but all your goals (hint hint: There’s one coming to my website very soon!). Put all of these little gifts into a cute gym bag or stuff a stocking with them — any workout enthusiast will be happy to get them!
Country Heat Dance Workout
It’s getting cold outside, so might I suggest a little Heat? As in Country Heat? Working out doesn’t always have to be crazy hard. Even during the holiday season you can enjoy keeping the pounds off, toning, and tightening your entire body with Country Heat, my newest workout program. Dance your way to a better body with awesome music and fun moves that are easy to follow!
Beachbody On Demand Subscription
Give your fitness-enthusiast friends and family a gift that keeps on giving: Beachbody On Demand subscriptions for 3, 6, or 12 months. Your loved ones can try out hundreds of workouts from the comfort of their own home (and don’t forget to check out my cooking show, FIXATE!). And for an even sweeter deal, add Shakeology to the Beachbody On Demand subscription with this money-saving Challenge Pack!
Make life a little easier on the chef in your life with some cool cooking tools. Look for a vegetable spiralizer, a nice wood cutting board, or even a grow-your-own herbs kit. And, of course, don’t forget the cooking inspiration! If you’re stumped, check out my FIXATEcookbook that features 101 healthy recipes for any occasion! (Find out which kitchen tools everyone needs — and which ones they don’t.)
Massage or Mani/Pedi Gift Cards
Everyone likes to be pampered a little, so pamper the ones you love with a gift card for a massage or a manicure/pedicure combo. Whether you go the luxury spa route or not, it’s the thought that counts. Get one for yourself and make it a couple or friend date!
21 Day Fix Canteen Water Bottle
I always have water with me because it’s so important to stay hydrated. I love this water bottle not only because it’s super cute, but it’s insulated so it keeps my water nice and cold! This stainless-steel bottle will keep your drink cool (or hot!) for hours, whether you’re working out or running errands.
I know a lot of people love earbuds, but I find my Solo3 Wireless Beats stay on my head better than the earbuds stay in my ears! Everyone has them but I actually like having more than one set. I keep a pair in my gym bag, one in my car and one at home. I never know when I’m going to have time to squeeze in a workout, but what I do know is that if I don’t have music to listen to, it ain’t gonna happen!
