Shop Small for Fitness and Health This Year

Posted on November 27, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Retailers are encouraging consumers to "shop small" and "shop local" on Shop Small Saturday, November 29. It's a great idea — and you can make it benefit your health and fitness.


Gym memberships are a great gift. Many fitness centers are locally owned and operated. Find the one that fits your needs, or the needs of a friend or family member, and help them achieve their goals.


Personal trainers are a great resource, even for the fittest athletes. See if your local personal trainer offers gift certificates for training. (I do, so I suspect others may, too.)


Give the gift of fitness gear: not only shoes and clothing, but weights and mats are good investments. 


DVDs are popular options, and offer an additional gift of flexibility. Consider the recipients' fitness level and interest — maybe even drop into a class to try it out before picking up the DVD.


If you're ambitious and have the space, consider equipment, gently used, for in-home training.


Finally, one of the best gifts is time. If you can give your friend or family member the gift of a workout buddy, you'll benefit, too.


What fitness gifts have you given over the years that have been gratefully received and successfully used?
