It’s the holidays, which means Christmas is soon coming (as of today, 25 days away!). So while figuring out presents to get your loved ones, don’t forget about your (or their) fitness needs and things that can give them that extra something they want out of life: Health, fitness, happiness, etc.
So let’s start with some of my top picks from Beachbody:
The newest workout from Tony Horton. Pre-Order ends tomorrow (November 30th), and with that you get free shipping. Even if you cannot order by November 30th, it would still be a great to get your loved one, especially if they are a P90X graduate or just want to improve their athletic performance.
P90X2 will help them feel younger, run faster, jump higher, be more athletic, and “kick the panties off of anyone who tries to get on the court or field” with them (ok, so I shamelessly stole that line from the original P90X Plyo workout, but hey….it will apply here).
P90X2 Base kit is only $119.95.
2. Beachbody Challenge Packs
This package is a bit more all-inclusive for those who need it all: A great fitness routine, added nutritional benefit of Shakeology, and support/meal planner through the Team Beachbody Club membership. To order a package it is real simple: Go to my Beachbody Challenge site, register for the challenge, and then purchase the package that you want.
Need some suggestions on what to order? Here’s my opinion (take it or leave it).
If you are a male, I suggest P90X if you like to lift weights, Insanity if you like more cardio based workouts.
If you are a female, I suggest starting with Turbo Fire, unless you like to lift weights and hate the entire peppy cardio scene. If you like weight lifting, go P90X. If you rather do cardio but want something grueling, definitely choose Insanity.
If these are a bit “steep” and looking for something, but just something that cost a bit less, there are packages for cheaper. The Ten Minute Trainer is a great option for those that are always in a hurry.
For the ladies, and I highly recommend this: If you’re already fairly thin, just want to shed a bit of fat, and really want to work on your booty (think lifted, better shape, much sexier and looks killer in both jeans and a bikini), I cannot more highly suggest the Brazil Butt Lift challenge pack.
What are the advantages to getting a package?
For starters, free shipping. Put it this way: If you were to order P90X, shipping is around $13. Shakelology is another $13. So there is $26 off there. The cost of things is also greatly reduced. Instead of $240 for P90X and Shakology, as an example, it is only $205 + tax (no shipping, remember). Plus you’ll get the tools you need: Shakeology on Home Direct, the fitness routine, and 30 days membership to the Beachbody Club.
Plus, you’ll get a chance to win $500 a day just for logging your workouts.
I’ll be starting some focused Challenge groups on January 1-2 range, so be looking for more info there.
3. Beachbody Gift Cards
Yes, it’s the old cop-out gift. But what better way to give a gift card than to give one that allows your loved ones, or yourself, to chose what they (you) want to do? If you are not a mind reader, this is a great option. You can get them a gift card as low as $25 and all the way up to $500.
To order a git card, you must be at least a free member of Team Beachbody. Then simply go to order a Gift Card by clicking here or through the Team Beachbody website.
Other Non-Beachbody Gifts
Of course, there are many other gifts you can get them that are non-Beachbody but still contribute to their fitness, or your fitness, depending on who you are buying for, of course.
1. Primal Blueprint
Hey, I could always use some of my readers going primal with me. This is a serious great read and will make you question a lot of what people have said is the “right” way to eat to lose weight? Sound a little out there? Check out these success stories.
2. Vibram 5 Fingers
They are trendy, and they are primal-ish.
3. A good heart rate monitor
Always useful for runners, light cardio junkes, etc.
4. A Crossfit Membership
Check out Crossfit and find them a box in your area to join.
And, of course, I’m sure there are many, many other things you could get them. Like a yoga mat. Or some Select Techs. Or a massage. Heck, get yourself a massage and give them a yoga mat!
Enjoy the Christmas gift buying experience, and be safe this holiday season!
