Great Christmas Gifts for Active Employees

Christmas is right around the corner, and that means it is time to rack your brain for gifts to give out at the office.  You want to get them something that they will like, but you also want your gift to be more creative than just handing out a $100 bill or a gift card. On top of that, you know that January 1 is right around the corner, and piggy-backing off of New Years Resolutions is a great way to encourage your employees to stay healthy and active. 

Since you barely have time to shop for your family, much less your co-workers, we thought we would compile a list of great Christmas gifts that encourage an active lifestyle. 

Happy Shopping!

EDGE Wireless Headset

Want to encourage your employees to stay active without having to be as direct as handing out gym memberships?  The EDGE Wireless Headset from Red Fox Wireless provides the perfect opportunity for you to give away the latest in wire-free technology that will benefit any active lifestyle.  Employees will love the EDGE’s ability to easily make and receive phone calls and enjoy music while they are working out, running, cycling, hiking or doing whatever keeps them on the move. The headset also allows them to change the song and control the volume of the music or phone call right from the headset! The EDGE Wireless Headset is definitely the coolest way for your employees to stay productive and active!

Vívofit Fitness Band by Garmin
You already know that the active steps you take now can improve your overall wellness today, tomorrow and well into your future; and while it seems simple to get out of that chair more often and move, making it stick is another matter. That’s where vívofit can turn good intentions into lifelong habits. It’s the only fitness band that greets you with a personalized daily goal, tracks your progress and reminds you when it’s time to move. While it is the most expensive item on this list, think about the price of having your own personal trainer 24/7, and suddenly the price seems more reasonable.  Help your employees take the next step towards a healthier lifestyle with vívofit.

HydraCoach Water Bottle
So the health experts are saying that we are supposed drink half of our body weight in water everyday, but who has time to keep track of how many 12 ounce glasses of water you have had? The HydraCoach Water Bottle just made your job a lot easier!  It calculates your personal hydration needs, tracks your real-time fluid consumption, paces you throughout the day, and motivates you to achieve and maintain optimal hydration. Plus it would great with your company logo on it!

Fitness Class Membership
Motivating yourself to workout can be a drag, which is why Group Fitness classes are so popular.  Whether it’s Crossfit, Zumba, Body Pump, or Hot Yoga, people love the team environment that fitness classes provide.   Why not partner with a local gym or fitness studio to offer your employees full or discounted class memberships? Employees will love the opportunity to exercise in a fun, energetic environment; and with someone else motivating them, they may be more likely to stick it out past January.
