By Stephen R. Farris
With Christmas right around the corner, choosing the right gift for your spouse can prove to be a difficult assignment. So guys, if your girlfriend or wife has been working out, or is into staying fit and active, there are gifts out there that could keep you out of the doghouse this holiday season. And ladies, you may want to take a look at some of these and give your other half a few hints to what you would like.
Whatever you decide, it's not just a time to celebrate the season, but also to celebrate what you've accomplished -- and continue to accomplish -- towards your fitness goals. So let's take a quick look.
No Doubt, Fitbits are Here to Stay
Seems everyone that is into staying active has seen a variety of step counters available on the market that not only keep track of how many steps you take, but also keep up with your heart rate and calories burned while working out. Fitbit is one of the most popular items in this category and they've come out with another upgraded model. This one features built in Amazon Alexa technology, so you can ask for weather updates as well as keeping track of sleep and 24/7 heart monitoring.
What to do if You Sit at Your Job
Studies suggest that literally 1 in 4 Americans sit during the course of their job each day. We all should know by know that's not good for our heart and may lead to poor circulation problems too. A new item this Christmas is called the DeskCycle 2, that allows you to keep hidden under your desk and can be used throughout the course of your work day. It has several resistance settings and a monitor to keep track of your movement.
Smooth as Silk for Counting Those Sheep
We all know the importance of a good night's sleep and the effects it can create for our bodies. Try the new Slip silk pillowcase out. It claims to help hair and skin health while you sleep by providing less friction, and is available in a variety of colors to match your bedroom decor.
