The best gift you can give your body is the gift of health: strength, cardio, flexibility, and stress release. Give the gift of fitness to yourself and your loved ones this holiday season.
Stretching can reduce problems in your vascular system and decrease risk of heart attack and stroke. Stretching increases blood flow to your arteries and decreases artery stiffness.
We believe here at Baptist East Milestone Wellness Center that the best gift you can give yourself is the gift of fitness. I asked some of our certified trainers what gifts they will be giving their loved ones this holiday season.
Bekki Jo Tressler, certified pilates instructor at Milestone, believes the best gifts to give and receive are: a yoga mat from lulu lemon, Shashi Barre Socks,and Snarky Tea for her tea-loving friends! She also loves to give Oasis spa gift cards to help release stress during the holiday season.
Robb Beyer, certified personal trainer at Milestone, believes if he could give a gift that is fitness related, it would be the ability to push past what someone thought possible.
Jocelyn Duke, a personal trainer and fitness specialist at Milestone believes the best gift she gives her clients during a workout is physical release, which in turn releases endorphins and overall mood. Jocelyn recommends exercise bands as a great fitness gift to give or receive.
Kettlebells, dumbbells, and even breathable exercise masks from Adidas or Athleta are also wonderful fitness gift ideas to help keep you safe and active!
So indulge in the gift of exercise this holiday season. Improve your overall health, release stress, and make 2021 your year to make a positive change.
Happy Holidays and Merry Fitness!
