Gift Guide: Fitness

By Alexandra Caspero on December 10, 2013

Today’s gift guide is for the active person in your life. I don’t know about you, but I love receiving fitness-related gear as gifts. Not only does it inspire me to exercise, especially harder this time of year, but they are also gifts I don’t tend to buy myself- the perfect treat! While I teach a variety of fitness classes during the week, my me-workouts focus around running and yoga, highlighted in the gear I’ve chosen here.


1. Polar Heart Rate Monitor Watch: Perfect for those who want to take their runs to the next level, essential in training for 1/2 or full marathons.

2. UA ColdGear Compression Leggings: Sacramento weather allows me to run all year long though I have to bundle up more in the mornings and days it gets below 40. These are my favorite tights to run in, breathable and warm.

3. UA ColdGear Headband: Along the same lines as #2, this ear warmer is perfect for windy and chilly days. I hate running with a hat on, they tend to get too hot and bulky. This ear warmer is a perfect compromise.

4. Gaiam Yoga Socks: Fun yoga socks when you want to practice sans mat. I take these traveling when I don’t have room for my yoga mat.

5. 3 Exercise Bands (Light, Medium, Heavy) and Door Anchor: Great stocking stuffers! Print off a list of fun band exercises to go with!

6. Kettlebell Set: 8-15lb. set of kettlebells, a little more expensive but a fabulous idea for the person who wants to take their workout to the next level.
