The best gifts are the ones that you were not expecting or were even aware that they existed, but end up being a helpful addition to your daily life. If you like to sweat and enjoy all things fitness then it can be a challenge for the folks in your life to find the right gift that supports your training efforts. Likewise, you may have a couple of people in your life who seem to live in the gym and it can always be a challenge to give them a thoughtful gift.

To make this holiday gift giving season easier for you, on this episode of All About Fitness, I’m joined by Ms. Amanda Vogel, the author of the Fitness Test Drive blog and a fitness industry insider. Amanda and I discuss a number of items from waterproof shoes to kites (yes, you read that right) that could make excellent gift ideas for the people in your life who make exercise a priority in theirs.
