With the holiday season underway marks the time to Christmas shop for your loved ones. If you have a runner in the family or for those who live an active lifestyle here are my top 5 fitness gift suggestions to suit every budget:
Finding a good knitwear scarf is simply one of those “can’t miss” gifts that are functional, while sporting a wide range of colours and styles. After snowshoeing or working out in the cold, the scarf will keep their neck warm and cozy while stylin’. Also popular in knitwear this year is the classic poncho. They are versatile, functional, more styling than ever, and perfect for that walk with a cup of coffee. There’s no better way to look the part in FW2017. Canadian fashion knitwear designer Cecile Benac has a quality selection of medium to hi-end knitwear that will suit the outdoorsy type to the fashion conscious. http://cecilebenacknitwear.com/
Complement the poncho with FIRMA hi rise leggings as a gift of fashionable shaping. www.firmawear.com It looks great with boots and the poncho and a host of other garments and accessories as well.
Just starting an exercise program then perhaps a Peak long sleeve pullover sweatshirt would do the job and a pair of GoTrail 2 shoes by SKECHERS (www.skechers.com). Both are perfect for winter running, while their love and gratitude for the giver should at least equal the life of the shoes.
Diane’s Lingerie (http://www.dianeslingerie.com/) has a great selection of sports bras. I was fitted into the Momentum Sports Bra by Anita, which is a perfect combination of support and comfort with breathable fabrics that easily sustain, no matter how hard I work out. The Momentum has a classic design with its pre-shaped cups and can be worn alone or underneath a tee-shirt or light jacket. It’s a bra that you want to show off while pounding the pavement.
Looking for a spectacular yoga mat…look no further…Soul Purpose has a selection to suit every taste and can now found at Coastal Collective + Co (101-10973 Barnston View Road, Pitt Meadows) along with their carry bags and totes.
ADDED BONUS….you can throw them in the washing machine!
“You’re awesome”…yep you heard right…following on with the yoga theme, I found these perfecting sized Yoga kits from Saje (www.saje.com)., which contain an antibacterial mat spray (a must…especially for the hot yoga fans amongst us), a transition mist and a peppermint halo headache remedy. They come packaged in a nice case which makes them great stocking stuffers and I love that it’s the perfect size to keep in your bag so you’ll never be without it.
I also love the gift that keeps on giving such as a membership or a class and Sole Experience has just that from beginners to hardy athletes, young to old and everything in between, INCLUDING children’s sport camps!
