With Christmas gift buying at a fren

zy and New Year’s Resolutions right around the corner, I wanted to share my “Top 5” fat burning gift suggestions for the Holiday Season.

It doesn’t matter if you’re buying for someone or if you want to know the best fitness gifts to ask for, these are the 5 best fitness present suggestions:

#5 – A Kettlebell

With a kettlebell, you can burn calories, do intervals, work your abs, build strength, and completely sculpt your body. Beginner women should start with a 12-18 pound kettlebell while beginner men can start with an 18 or 35 pound bell.

#4 – A blender to create delicious blender drinks and meals

For about $60-$100 you can get a machine to blend up fruits, veggies, nuts, protein powder, and seeds to create a nutrient dense complete meal to overcome busy mornings or to create the perfect snack or dessert. Once you get started “blending your nutrition”, you’ll be amazed at what you can create.

#3 – A Gymboss Timer

This little timer allows you to set two different intervals and will alert you when each interval is up. It’s a cheap – $20 – tool that will help you organize your workouts and maximize your results.

#2 – A Stability Ball

The stability ball is one of the most versatile fitness tools, and it allows you to exercise your abs and back of your legs better than any bodyweight only exercises.

#1 – The Turbulence Training Fat Loss System

With Turbulence Training for Fat Loss you can lose fat and sculpt your body in the comfort of your own home, without doing long, slow, boring cardio. It is a proven, guaranteed program that will help you lose belly fat and get a lean, hard, flat stomach.

So those are the 5 best fitness presents you can give – or receive – this year.

Happy Holidays!

[Editor’s Comments: If you’re like me, you still have some last minute Christmas shopping to do. Heck…I even buy a few presents every year after Christmas is well over.

It’s kind of a running joke in my family. My nieces and nephew always look forward to their “Christmas in July” because that is typically when I send their gifts.

So if you are still doing some shopping, Craig has a few excellent choices this year.

The Gymboss Interval Timer is a very cool little tool that is a must have when doing interval training. I got tired of using the timer on the microwave, so I picked-up one of these and I love it.

Turbulence Training is the #1 home workout and perfect for your New Year’s fat loss program… especially if you hate going to busy gyms. Plus, you can even try out Turbulence Training for less than the price of a giant, fancy coffee at Starbucks.

Kettlebell workouts are becoming extremely popular. I haven’t tried them…yet…but if do them now or someone buys you one for Christmas, check out the kettlebell workouts at the link below:

Stability balls are great for abdominal workouts…my favorites are stability ball rollouts and jackknives.

And, last but not least, we couldn’t live without our “little” blender…the Magic Bullet. I didn’t want one, but my wife bought it anyway. Now I don’t know what I would do without it. It is easily the most convenient blender I have ever used for mixing up protein shakes, smoothies, etc. Best of all…the cups are dishwasher safe!

Wishing you happy shopping and much fat burning success over the holidays!]
