Holiday Gift Ideas for Active or Non-Active Lifestyles
Thinking of the Holiday Season a conversation arose about the difficulty to pick a present for someone that’s active. Making it even more difficult of it being versatile for someone that is living a healthy lifestyle and also for someone that’s not.
If you live a healthy/active lifestyle the wants & needs are a bit different. Compared to those of the non-active as it relates to gadgets, and gear that makes a sweat session better. Although there’s hopes that at some point they’ll make changes for better health mentally, physically and spiritually.
Fit Results’ Ambassadors assisted in sharing ideas and the following came as follows:
Shannon’s wishlist (Fit Results Ambassador)
Created by Lo and Ro, elite professional runners Lauren Fleshman (“Lo”) and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas (“Ro”), their Believe journal is much more than a workout log. It’s a personal diary + workbook that will help keep you honest and motivated for running, while improving your mind and spirit alongside your body. The journal includes insightful essay, and tips on goal setting/ nutrition/ body image/ psychology/ set-backs/ recovery/ and much more.
Dr. Oz’s Liver Elixer to Detox and Reboot your Liver $0.00
Your liver is your body’s primary filtration system, cleaning the blood and aiding digestion and metabolism. A fatty liver occurs when your body becomes overrun with fats and is no longer able to detoxify itself. A healthy diet rich in greens and lean protein allows your liver to do its job properly without being overrun by toxins.
Liver Restart #1: Drink Dr. Oz’s Morning Liver Elixir
- ¼ cup warm water
- Juice of lemon wedge
- 2 dashes of hot pepper sauce
- Warm water aids digestion, lemon juice contains vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that helps calm liver inflammation and protect sagainst free radical damage. Hot pepper sauce contains capsaicin, which boosts blood flow and certain enzymes responsible for detoxifying your liver.Drink Dr. Oz’s Morning Liver Elixir daily. In addition to this cocktail, cut back on consumption of sugary, fatty foods, and alcohol.
Liver Restart #2: Eat 3 Cups of Bitter Greens or Cruciferous Vegetables Daily
Bitter greens include arugula, endive, dandelion greens and spinach. The bitter flavor in these foods actually detoxifies your liver by increasing bile flow, while the greens themselves flush out toxins. Cruciferous veggies including broccoli, and Brussels sprouts aid liver function. Choose any mix you want and eat them raw or cooked. Eating these plant foods daily will not only help restart your liver, but also make a difference in your overall health.

Christie’s Wishlist (Fit Results Ambassador)
Cost: starting at $199.95
I love this watch not only for its fitness activity, but because of it’s smart notifications ranging from phone calls, text messages and calendar appointments helping me stay on top of family activities. The band can also be switched out making it much more versatile to go from the gym, to date night with my husband.
Working out puts a toll on the body and for someone like me who doesn’t stretch as often as they should, the foam roller is a gift from heaven. This particular roller has a structured grid to help you tackle those tight muscles for a good deep tissue massage. Your body will thank you for the investment of the foam roller as it helps with recovery and improves performance.
Just like a woman can never have too many shoes, a “fit” woman can never have too many sports bras. I love the zipper in the front which makes for a less challenging removal and this sportsbra has cups so you don’t have to worry about flashing your “headlights” during your workout. The straps are adjustable and provide extra support for ladies who are fuller.
Lou’s wishlist (Fit Results Owner and Trainer)
Kick your gym workouts up a notch. An abrasion print in key wear-and-tear areas ensures this short stands strong through your toughest training sessions. Made with Swift Ultra fabric that is lightweight, four-way stretch, and sweat-wicking.
We hope these ideas were of some assistance in your holiday shopping madness. From a community that wants to assist everyone’s well-being. These presents will not only help those living a healthy and active lifestyle. Also those that have been debating on when to start living better.
