Valentine’s Day gifts for fitness fanatics

February 10, 2020

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, there is still time to get your loved one the perfect gift. If you and your special someone are always staying active, how about getting him or her a gift that will support that lifestyle? And if you don’t have a Valentine, no worries – buy a little something for yourself! After all, you deserve it. Here are a few great ideas for the active person on your list:

Reusable water bottle
Alright, we know this isn’t the most romantic of all gifts, but it sure does come in handy when you’re exercising! And with TRUE’s fitness equipment, there’s always a cup holder for your convenience. Put aside those plastic water bottles and replace it with a reusable one. According to Ban the Bottle, plastic bottles not only cost you more over time, but they contain a harmful substance called polyethylene terephthalate, which is dangerous to your health. What better way to say “I love you” than to protect your sweetie from harm?

Training journal
According to Center Works, keeping a journal of your workout progress can help you to stick to those goals you work so hard to accomplish. You may not be immediately be seeing results on your body, but once you write all of your hard work down, your progress will be laid out right in front of you. This is great motivation to keep up the good work! You may even want to personalize the journal with your special someone’s name or maybe even their favorite motivational quote for an even more unique gift.

A massage
Preventing injury during a workout is essential to reach your fitness goals. And what better way to prevent injury than with a massage to work out trouble areas? TRUE’s home gym equipment is especially designed with comfort in mind so you’re never set back by injury. Whether you’re getting your cardio in on a stationary bike, elliptical machine or a treadmill, you can be assured that you’re getting the safest and most comfortable workout possible. The M50 Treadmill has an orthopedic belt designed specifically for reducing the impact on joints and knees, so you can retain the benefits of a massage or longer.

This ever-popular Valentine’s Day gift will never get old. Who doesn’t love getting chocolate? According to Women’s Health magazine, eating dark chocolate can help to cut your risk for heart failure by as much as one third. In fact, chocolate and exercise work quite well together. Every once in awhile, it’s okay to reward your efforts with a little chocolate. However, make sure that it contains at least 70 percent cacao to reap all of the health benefits of this sweet treat.

Whatever you decide to get your loved one for Valentine’s Day, they’re sure to love it because it came straight from you.
