By Mekita Rivas, VIDA editor/member
It’s that time of year again! The holidays are officially here, and odds are that you have some shopping to do. But no need to stress! We’ve got gifts for everyone on your list, including some amazing experiential gifts that you won’t find anywhere else. So if holiday shopping is beginning to feel like a marathon right about now, check out our gift guide below, and you’ll cross that finish line in no time.
MYZONE heart rate monitor
This is THE gift for your super competitive, data-obsessed friend. The advanced technology of a MYZONE heart rate monitor is a game-changer. Your friend’s workouts will be completely transformed thanks to instant feedback, customized workout summaries, and a supportive social community. And as a VIDA member, you get an awesome deal: Purchase a MYZONE for only $99 (retail value $149) at any VIDA location.
The new year is right around the corner, which means that many people are making resolutions to lead healthier, fitter lives. What better way to kickstart those resolutions than with classes at SweatBox, DC’s premier high intensity interval training studio? You’ll definitely be starting 2019 on the right foot. Plus, first-timers get two weeks of unlimited classes!
For the Pilates enthusiast in your life, classes in our Pilates Reformer studio make the perfect gift. The Reformer helps you reach a greater range of motion, add resistance, and target individual muscle groups that you can’t quite get to on a mat. These classes are also beneficial for anyone recovering from an injury or looking for a great complement to their existing workout routine.
Some of us need a little more guidance in the gym. And others are just looking for a way to kick it up a notch. No matter where you are in your fitness journey, working with a personal trainer is always a good idea! They can give you a solid starting point or push you beyond those frustrating plateaus. Learn more about our personal training packs here!
We may be a little biased, but VIDA swag is definitely the District’s must-have fitness attire. Whether you’re rocking a classic VIDA T-shirt or one of our new Nike zip-ups, you’ll be repping your favorite gym in style. Check out our online store or visit a VIDA Gear Shop in person to pick up some new goods!
HydroMassage has officially arrived at VIDA! This state-of-the-art relaxation system is just what you need for loosening up muscles, either before a big workout or before your next deep tissue massage at Aura Spa. Limbering up has seriously never felt so good. VIDA members receive unlimited HydroMassage sessions for just $25/month, making it a gift that truly keeps on giving all year long!
VIDA Fitness gift card
VIDA Fitness gift cards are the best stocking stuffers. They can be used for lots of goodies including membership, personal training, swag at the Gear Shop, and so much more.
Aura spa gift card
What better way to unwind after the hectic holiday season than with a deep tissue massage? Or maybe with a rejuvenating facial? Or both?! However you choose to #treatyoself, an Aura spa gift card will be a great gift for anyone who’s in need of a little TLC.
The Penthouse Pool and Lounge membership
Looking to splurge on someone extra special? It doesn’t get more special — or more exclusive — than gifting a membership to the Penthouse Pool and Lounge, D.C.’s premier rooftop destination. Your friend can live it up at the District’s hottest local resort, which offers full food and beverage service, cabana rentals, private event bookings, and plenty of poolside fun in the sun.
A good haircut can be hard to find. Fortunately, the hair experts at Bang Salon know exactly what they’re doing to make you look and feel your best. Anyone who receives a Bang Salon gift card will get the kind of haircut that dries perfectly and looks stylish even after a good sweat sesh. Talk about a holiday miracle!
