Your brother. Daughter. Mother. Your workout partner? This Christmas, why not offer someone you love a dip into reaching optimal health?
Hear us out.
We're not saying we've got a magic pill. But small incremental changes can make a big difference to someone's life. Give a friend a taster for post-workout endorphins, and they could be hooked for life. It may sound silly, but a new pair of leggings can be the confidence booster that makes you stick to your Yoga classes. A single bag of Organic Protein can make one realise how synthetic conventional products taste. An easy-to-follow workout programme may be all your father needs to actually use the gym membership he's been paying for 5 years.
Change must be initiated by a shift in momentum, and you can be the one to offer that first nudge.
Six Health & Fitness Christmas Gift Ideas
- A Planet Organic food hamper. Did you know: organic food can have up to 60% more micronutrients than conventionally produced food. This means more energy, more vitality, and way, way more flavour.
- A cycle of probiotics. Don't underestimate this one. It may make for an unusual Christmas day unwrapping experience, but a high quality probiotics course like the one offered by Symprove can make a real life difference to people suffering from poor digestion.
- Sportswear. Offering a new pair of leggings or a new cycling jersey is not just a clothing gift. It's an RSVP to the awesome world of movement. Looking for something new? Check out London-based Every Second Counts.
- A high quality Workout Programme. A workout programme is not just about "what to do in the gym", it's about learning new movement patterns and continually challenging oneself. Which makes it a great gift. Check out The Brotherhood Training Club for a generous gent's gift.
- Motion organic supplements. Did we mention that thing about choosing organic? Here's something else. For someone who's used to buying conventional supplements, making the switch to another brand is tough - we get stuck into our rituals, us humans, and we put our blinkers on. So why not give someone a taster for how awesome a nutrient-dense, organic supplement can be? You could make a real difference to their long-term health.
- A healthy recipe book. You can find anything online - and when it comes to cooking, that's a real problem. You really can find anything. Plus, it's much more romantic to flick through a finger-stained recipe book than to get your keyboard all sticky as you type your password in for the 5th time just to check how much vegetable stock you should be using. For a gorgeous vegetable-by-vegetable cozy cookbook, try Nigel Slater's Tender. For a modern, health & fitness book full of Instagram-ready recipes, give Dr Hazel Wallace's The Food Medic a go.
