Watch on your mobile device >>

With the holiday season around the corner, I'm sure plenty of you are going crazy with what to get for your loved ones.  Well, I am going to offer a few suggestions for the health and fitness buff in your household.  Here are a few options that everyone can enjoy:

For the runner – How about a new treadmill?  There are many options when it comes to treadmills.  I would suggest a quality brand when it comes to treadmills.  And, if you are going to be logging plenty of miles on it, I would opt for a commercial quality style as well.  The extra cost upfront will payoff in the end with the extra quality components.  Also, go with a warranty. You never know when you may need service and how much it may cost.  Play it safe.

For the muscle builder – I really like the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells.  The nice thing about these dumbbells is you can adjust the weight from 5 – 52.5lbs with the twist of a dial.  You won't need to spend a lot on a complete set of dumbbells if you go with this option.  And with a trusted name in Bowflex, you are know you are getting a quality product.

For the family – How about a Nintendo Wii?  Yes, I am serious.  Have you seen how innovative this system has become with fitness in mind?  You are up off your butt and using the controllers and your body to play these games.  They offer fitness games, Yoga, Pilates, and all sorts of sports games for the youngsters.  For an active family, this would be a great buy especially on rainy days.

You need music right?  How about grabbing the newest mp3 player on the market?  I personally feel music can make or break a workout.  You can set up your play-list to your liking and kick the workout in the butt.  And with all the options for downloading songs, your options are endless.

GPS – Yes, GPS for running.  The new Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS Receiver is a watch you simply wear while running.  It will track your precise speed, distance, and record pace data. You can also analyze the info with Motion-based, which  provides online mapping and route sharing.

These are my top 5 suggestions for holiday fitness gifts.  I hope this helps with your fitness minded family and friends.
