Holiday Gifts For Health Junkies

The holidays are here again! Lights are going up, college students are packing their bags to return home, and the faint smell of pumpkin pie and cinnamon drifts across the nation. In the distance, you can hear the faint rustling of gift wrap and the squeaking of a thousand shopping carts racing down the aisle to find the biggest and best turkey. This time of year brings joy and a sense of togetherness, but can also bring stress as you search for the perfect gift for everyone on your list. If you need to find a gift for the fitness family member or the Paleo pal in your life, we have found some great ideas!

Let’s be honest, regular gyms are not for everybody. It is important that you find a workout routine that you enjoy and one that is right for you. Luckily, apps like ClassPass have made it easy to connect you to gyms all over your city.  Prices start from $15 per month and can go as high as $199 per month. There are several packages available to choose from depending on how much you wish to spend. One way to stick to you fitness goals for the new year is to have a workout partner who shares the same goals as you, so treat your friend or family to a one month membership and hit the hottest Pilates studio in your neighborhood. You can get the first week for free!
