Best Father’s Day Gifts for the Fit Dad in Your Life

Father’s Day is right around the corner, so now’s the time to get shopping for a gift if you want to give something thoughtful.. because really, how many ties or grilling tools does your dad actually need?

If you’re dad is is a big fan of fitness, or he’s been looking to get more active, here are some great gifts that he’ll be sure to put to use and his health will thank you for:

1.) Timex Ironman watch

Timex has an Ironman line of watches that are an ideal gift for a dad that trains without breaking the bank (well, some are up there in price, but the majority of watched in the line are at a reasonable price.)

These watches are lightweight, water resistant, and have a ton of features including run timers, interval workout modes, workout memory, alarms and the INDIGLO® night-light just to name a few.

Vida training2.) Personal Training

Even if you’re dad is already fit, giving the gift of personal training is perfect if you’re dad has been looking to increase strength in a specific area, or if he’s training for a particular event. Having a trainer to guide him through some new workouts or techniques can be a game-changing gift.

And if you’re dad has been looking to get more active, personal training is the perfect way to get him in the groove of a workout schedule and be shown the ropes with a solid workout routine. For more information on gifting personal training and finding the perfect fit trainer, take a look here.

 3.) CamelBak Backpack

 Give the gift of hydration! If you’re active dad lives to run, bike, fish, hike, anything outdoors for a long period of time, he’ll love the convenience of having a CamelBak pack.

They’re relatively lightweight, and there are a ton of models to choose from based on preferred activities, but you can’t go wrong with this gift.

4.) Fuel Bar gift certificate

If your fit dad is more of a gym rat than an outdoorsmen, getting hydrated at the Fuel Bar is another perfect gift option.

Make it easy for him to pick up a post-workout shake or healthy snack on the go with a gift card to the Fuel Bar.

5.) Sweatproof Bluetooth earbuds

Chances are your dad uses the crummy headphones that came with his iPhone, but give him an upgrade in sound quality and comfort with sweat proof Bluetooth earbuds.

Not only do these earbuds give him a wireless connection to his device, but they’re also built for activity so they don’t come flying out every other minute when he’s doing intense exercise.

6.) A sports massage

Dads need pampering, too. Get your fit dad to loosen up with some time on the massage table.

Aura Spa has sports massage options designed for athletes of all levels to broaden, condition, and stretch muscles for optimal performance.

7.) The Trigger Point Starter Set 

This Trigger Point Starter Set is a amazing for anyone who suffers from post-workout discomfort or limited mobility in the feet, achilles tendon, shins and other muscles throughout the lower leg.

The set comes with a Foot Baller, Baller Block and a TP Massage Ball, which helps with plantar fasciitis, ankle stability, lower back pain, piriformis syndrome and upper back strain.

Any gifts you fit dads out there would also be happy to get?
