3 Amazing Ways to Give the Gift of Movement

3 Amazing Ways to Give the Gift of Movement

by Heather Lielmanis December 15, 2016

 

Year after year, it can be difficult to be creative with gift giving ideas, especially when you have someone on your holiday shopping list who is particularly difficult to buy for. At Fitneff, we suggest giving the gift of movement this year. Consider gifts that will make it easy for those you love to incorporate more activity into their daily lives. Here are some amazing ideas, no matter who you're shopping for.   

The Couch Potato 

Let’s face it, at the end of a long day, it feels great to flop onto the sofa with a book or a movie and just relax. The problem is that sometimes, hours can pass before we get up again. And, if we’ve been sitting a lot throughout the day, on the commute to and from work, as well as at the office, hours of sitting in the evening is not always what we need. Integrate Desk Pedals are the answer for that person who just needs to be a Couch Potato in the evenings. Desk Pedals allow you to sit, but also allow you to pedal while your at it. This engages your legs and your core, and counteracts the negative effects of sitting. So let the Couch Potato in your life chill in front of the TV, and feel just a little better about it.    

The Work-a-holic 

We all know someone who works around the clock. This person may be great at getting things done, and may not seem to mind the long hours, but she may not realize is that all that time, seated at her computer, is actually very bad for her health. If you can’t convince her to take a break every once in a while, at least make it easy for her to take a break from sitting with a sit-stand desk. Any one of our collection of sit-stand desks will allow the Work-a-holic to easily move between sitting and standing without interrupting her work.  

The Busy Bee  

The Busy Bee is always on the go. He fits in a regular work out, walks when he can and makes sure to always skip the escalator in favour of the stairs. This kind of person likes to set goals and is likely to meet them if he only had a way to keep track. A Garmin Activity Tracker is a perfect gift for the Busy Bee. He’ll be able to set goals, count his steps, monitor his sleep and keep track of calories burned. The sleek design and stylish colours mean that he’ll look good at every step along the way. 

 

Not only is the gift of movement an entirely practical idea - something new that you haven’t likely given in past years, it also demonstrates your care for their health and well-being of those you love. Couldn’t we all use a little more movement in our lives?
