Starting a health and fitness kick doesn’t have to wait until the new year. In fact, it’s better to get a jump start before the holidays since you’re more likely to eat healthier (and less) if you’ve already started exercising regularly and watching your caloric and nutritional intake before the get-togethers and the feeding frenzies begin. But also remember that these days, fitness is about recovery as much as it is about the workout. The right equipment can certainly motivate you and help you stay in the saddle, so we’ve selected ten items that will be great gifts for your health-conscious friends and family (or just for you) this year. Just make sure you don’t imply that the recipient needs improvement and think carefully to give to those who would appreciate it, versus to those who would just plain get offended and go for another slice of pie.
