8 Great Health, Fitness and Self-Care Holiday Gift Ideas to Give Yourself or the Health Minded People You Love🎄🎁🕎

Have you finished shopping for everyone and feeling drained?  

All that screen tapping and department store running is exhausting.

If you’re thinking about giving yourself some much needed self-care now, or still looking for a gift that says, “healthy,” and “let’s get this body back on track,” I have 8 gift ideas for you and your fitness minded loved ones below.

1. Weighted vest

Do you or someone you know enjoy hiking or rucking?  Rucking is the new trend in case you didn’t get the memo.  

This is a fabulous gift that will ramp up any workout.  I like to wear my 8lb vest for body weight exercises like squats, push-ups, planks, step ups or just walking.  It increases your energy burn and strengthens your core at the same time.

The weighted vests from ProSourceFit come in various weights, are made of soft neoprene and fit so comfortably you barely know you’re wearing it.

2. GenoPalate eat for you DNA

Eat for your DNA
Choose foods based on your genetics

You hear this over and over again by nutritionists and trainers:  “every body is different.”  Yet still, when I do my Live Q&A’s and consultations I always get asked, “should I do the (fill in the blank) diet?”

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

That’s why I like the field of nutrigenomics… it’s DNA based nutrition. 

The biggest benefit of receiving personalized nutrition report is taking the guesswork out of diet and lifestyle decisions.  The GenoPalate report will provide insights into your recommended macronutrient and micronutrient intake. You also get a lengthy list of foods that you may benefit from eating more of, based on your genes.

For example:

  • What are the healthiest carbohydrate, protein, and fat intake for your body
  • Which vitamins and minerals your body needs most
  • Every report includes a complementary group orientation with a registered dietitian
  • See whether you may be sensitive to lactose or gluten
  • Discover how fast your body can process alcohol and caffeine

I know some doctors that charge up to $3500 for a genetic report and guidance from them.  The genetic reports from GenoPalate range between $79 and a couple of Benji’s at the most.

And you get 15% with code:  JILL15

3.  Lumen metabolic tracker

This easy to use gadget can help you unlock the key to your metabolism by making it more “flexible.”  

Metabolic flexibility is the body’s ability to switch back and forth between using fat and carbohydrates as a fuel source based on their availability.  

If you’ve ever wondered whether you should eat before a workout or not or, if you’re intermittent fasting long enough (or too long) or, if you’re ever burning fat for fuel, this is the gift for you!

You simply inhale into the tube, hold your breath for 10 seconds then, blow back into the tube. The Lumen determines whether you’re using fat, carbs or a combination of both by gauging the ratio of oxygen to carbon dioxide in your breath. This is called the RER, respiratory exchange ratio.

Based on your results, Lumen also gives you personalized recommendations for how many carbs to eat each day, plus tips on what to eat, recipe suggestions, sleep tips, and more insights on how to make your more metabolically efficient. There’s even a nutritionist available by chat if you need more support.

4.  Booty Bands & Pilates Ring

Booty Band and Pilates Ring

These are 2 fitness tools I can’t live without.   I take them with I travel because they take up almost no space at all.

Whether you’re doing a home or gym workout, these fit easily into any bag… and they take your workout to all new levels.  Squats, bridges, outer thighs inner thighs and ab workouts are all better with these props.

If you follow any influencers on Instagram (hopefully one is me!), you’ll see Booty Bands in action on the regs.  If you’re familiar with or a fan of Pilates, you know how versatile the Pilates Ring is.  Buy these for yourself or give them to your fitness loving friends as stocking stuffers.

5. Fast Bars

Curb hunger while staying in a fasted state

If you’re already intermittent fasting, but find some days are harder than others… well, I can tell you all about why that might happen.  Or, you can skip the lesson and use a Fast Bar.  These bars actually keep you in a fasting state until you’re ready to break your fast.

Sounds too good to be true?  These bars were formulated by scientists who found that a specific blend of macro and micronutrients could keep your body in a fasting state.  The recipe does not trigger any nutrient-sensing pathways, so these bars literally fly under the radar. And, they are absolutely delicious!  

Fast Bars are the only thing you can eat during your fasting window without breaking your fast.  They are also plant-based, Keto-friendly, and gluten-free.

6ProLon, the popular Fasting Mimicking Diet for after you’ve overdone it

You probably know by now I’m a fan of intermittent fasting for reasons beyond weight loss like blood sugar control, targeting belly fat, autophagy (cellular cleanup & repair), gut health, metabolic support and more.  But when I overdo it and need to get my weight back down stat, I turn to the ProLon program.  I never ever ever recommend juice fasts!

Why?  Because… science.  ProLon is a patented program backed by 20 years of research and $34 million in R&D.  It was clinically tested at the NIH and USC school of gerontology.  It is a precision nutrition technology clinically proven to keep you in a fasting state while nourishing your body with food.  And is the #1 recommended fasting nutrition program by doctors worldwide.

The best part for me is, with ProLon you don’t lose muscle mass while targeting a reduction in belly fat. This is the biggest problem with other very low calorie diets, detoxes and juice fasts. As we age, it’s easy to lose muscle and harder to put it back on. It takes much longer to put muscle on that it takes for muscle to fall off. So this is how I can guarantee my clients won’t lose hard earned muscle when trying to drop fat fast.

It helps to reset your body’s ability to rejuvenate from within in just five days.

7.  1-hour “Get on Track”  Personal Consultation for your fitness, nutrition & health goals

Not sure where to start?  Which fad diets work or don’t and what will work best for you?  Need a custom workout program that will be simple, easy to commit to and get you to your goals?

There’s a lot of noise, misinformation and unnecessary fear mongering out there.  Some, even from doctors because they have a product or a pill to sell.  I will help you cut through confusion, answer all your questions, and get you motivated and started on the right foot.

I’ll help you navigate the best type of diet based on your fitness, weight loss and health goals. How much and what types of foods to eat. I’ll help you adjust your workout routine to get better results… and anything else you need help with including what you’re doing right and what may need more attention.

It also makes a great gift!  Once you purchase, I will reach out to you or your or giftee with an celebratory email to choose a time and date for our session.  (No expiration date!)

Take advantage of this special price that I am offering just for the holidays!

8.  Far Infrared Sauna

Far Infrared Sauna

The ultimate self care gift!  

This is the 3 person model we have from JNH Lifestyles.  We set up a covered area in our backyard and use it as often as possible.  The benefits of sauna bathing are wonderful.  

Many studies have looked at using infrared saunas in the treatment of long-lasting health problems and found some proof that saunas may help. Conditions studied include high blood pressure, heart failure, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, headache, type 2 diabetes, and arthritis. The sweat is great for detoxing through the skin and the slight elevation in heart rate may have cardiovascular benefits. All it takes is one session to realize the benefits it has on relaxation, stress reduction, mood boosting and better sleep.
