Here is an article (courtesy of the American Council on Exercise) to help you shop for the fitness minded person on your list. We have attended workshops presented by Amy Dixon (first video). She does a great job explaining how to perform exercises and we love her creativity!
We will give you our favorites as well in the upcoming weeks! If you have any questions regarding fitness/exercise gifts, what to buy, where to buy, etc...feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or just comment on this post!

- What types of activities do they prefer?
Whether they love to dance or prefer a gentle yoga practice, having an understanding of what type of activities he or she enjoys is imperative to selecting the right workout DVD and ensuring your recipient makes the most use out of it!
- What are their fitness goals?
From wanting lose weight to simply seeking an option to unwind and de-stress after a long work day, knowing what health- and fitness-related goals that special someone in your life has will help you to navigate the plethora of workout options available.
- Does the DVD require any specific equipment (e.g., medicine ball, workout mat, stability ball)?
If equipment is needed to perform the exercises included in the workout, it’s important to know whether the individual you are buying for already has the necessary equipment. If not, you may want to consider purchasing those items along with the DVD to create a complete gift package.
