christmas gift guide: athletes

November 15, 2013


You may not be a fitness buff, but you’re bound to know one or two.
In my case, I live with one.
Here’s a selection of gifts for the athlete on your list:


1. GolfSense – this golf swing analyzer provides instant feedback on the user’s iPhone.
2. Sony MP3 Headphones – runners no longer need to carry an iPod or mp3 player while running — just pre-load songs on these headphones and go.
3. Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle – these water bottles have double wall vacuum insulation technology that keeps liquids cold for 24 hours.
4. TRX Suspension System – this innovative home gym builds strength, increases flexibility, and develops core stability and power — and its weight (less than 2 lbs.) makes it super portable.


1. 26-Function Bike Tool – far and away the most comprehensive bike tool.  According to my husband, there is nothing on his bike that cannot be fixed with this tool.
2. Fitbit Flex – this slim bracelet tracks steps, activity, and sleep and syncs wirelessly with iPhones and Andriods.
3. Zeal Optics HD Camera Goggles – there’s nothing quite like the view as you fly down a ski slope.  skiers and boarders can experience it again and again with these goggle’s HD recording function.
4. Drymax Cold Weather Running Socks – with a special Dual Layer Moisture Removal System, these socks keep feet dry and protects from blisters.

    Just a quick note to tell you once again how much I love getting you blog. I am so low tech that I am not even sure it is a blog, but I love it!! I feel so hip getting all your ideas. I don’t have any girls so this is almost like having a daughter. And you know that girls are always in the know quicker than boys. If ever, if at all.

    Thank you, thank you,
