Give the Gift of Good Health This Father’s Day

Father’’s Day is next Sunday and if you haven’t yet figured out what to give dad, consider the gift of good health. There are tons of great products out there designed to get dad moving, or if he already is, make his favorite activity or workout more enjoyable.

Need some ideas? We’ve listed a few of our favorites:

  • Lululemon Surge Shorts: A great option for any dad that enjoys hitting the gym, trail, or yoga mat, these shorts offer sweat-wicking fabric and a built-in liner, designed to keep dad super comfortable while enjoying his favorite activities.
  • Foam Roller: Who doesn’’t have tight IT bands? Whether or not dad enjoys running or hiking there’s a good chance his major muscle groups are tight just from everyday walking and sitting. Get him a foam roller and he won’t be disappointed with the deep tissue massage that doesn’’t cost an arm and a leg.
  • Manduka Yoga Mat So, maybe dad hasn’t picked up on yoga yet, but the absence of a good mat shouldn’t hold him back from checking out a class. Manduka makes the best yoga mats out there – it’s dense, cushioned, and will keep his hands and feet slip-free in downward dog, triangle, and any other pose he chooses to explore.
  • Fitbit For a dad that loves to track his daily activity, sleep, heart rate and more, a Fitbit is a good way to keep him engaged and on task to accomplish his health goals.
  • Personal Training Classes Does dad need some motivation to get healthy? If the answer is yes, consider purchasing him personal training classes. The accountability and support will encourage him to keep up the good work and he’ll probably enjoy having more energy and generally feeling better.
  • Get Outside! Didn’t make it to the store in time to pick up a gift for dad? Be creative and offer to take him on a hike, run, walk or whatever activity he enjoys the most. You can break a sweat and work in some quality time all in an afternoon – priceless.
