Endorphins make us happy…so let’s make everyone on our list super happy this holiday season. Here’s a few of our most favorite things to help you get up, get moving, and have fun! 

Let’s Get Rowdy

A little inspiration to get up and get moving never hurts. Loving what you’re wearing doing it—even better! We love Chaser Brands rocker inspired t-shirts and sweatshirts. 

Chaser Brand sweatshirt, $79

All-in-One Machine

If the Mirror and Bowflex had a baby…you’d get FORME Life Studio Lift. New (just hit the market)  strength training equipment that looks sleek, can be tucked away when not in use, but packs a serious punch when you want to sweat. When turned off, the display hides behind the mirror, blurring the line between home decor and home gym. You can do yoga, Pilates, strength training, dance and more with celebrity trainers like Harley Pasternak.  What’s also unique about this piece of equipment are the accessories like ankle straps, bars and ropes that attach to the mirror. 

FORME Life,  starting at $2,400

Scoot Around

An electric scooter is a fun way to get around town. Segway has a new ES KickScooter Family model that is extra light and can reach up to 12 miles per hour. With three different riding modes (safety, standard and sports), it’s great for anyone in your family. Plus, you can fold it up—so perfect for your city-living loved ones.

The Best Foam Roller

The TriggerPoint GRID, the original hollow core roller, is the favorite of athletes, trainers, and gym-goers alike. Recommended by sports doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists, foam rolling helps help release muscle pain and tightness, improve mobility, increase circulation, and is recommended by sports doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists. The three-dimensional surface allows tissue to aerate while you roll, promoting the flow of blood and oxygen—the nutrients needed to repair muscles. For beginners to advanced rollers.

TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller, $35

Fun (and Festive!) Workout Leggings

Probably the coolest designs you’ve ever seen on leggings. Fierce Pulse’s high and mid-waist leggings are some of the best we’ve tried (for every body type!).  They are squat proof and have four-way stretch so move with you. The best part…they have the most fun designs for every (and we mean every!) mood.

Smarter Watch

Amazfit’s GTR 2 smartwatch just launched last month and is getting rave reviews. It looks super sleek (so you can wear it anytime) and has high-precision heart rate monitoring, a BioTrackerTM 2 PPG optical sensor (which tracks your heart rate 24/7, monitors your resting heart rate, heart rate zones and provides you with abnormal heart rate warnings, to

better understand your heart health). Plus, it monitors your sleep and calories burned, is waterproof to track swimming, reminds you when to stand up, has 3GB of local music storage so you can listen to music and has a built-in microphone and speaker so you can take calls and get help from Alexa! It does it all!

Jump Up and Dance All Around

If you could only have one shoe for running, gym workouts and walking around town—this is it! The Hoka One Hupana Flow is like working out on a cloud. It’s lightweight and the rubberized foam is springy  for any jumping or impact.

Hoka One Hupana Flow, $115

Move at Work

So this one may not be tied to working out, but it is really important for your body. Good posture equals good health! Named “Best Laptop Stand Overall to Save Your Neck,” by Wired Magazine, the obVious Solutions Laptop Tower Stand  ergonomically sets up your workstation to promote healthy posture. Plus, you can use it to turn your table into a standing desk. Sitting for long periods of time has a number of health concerns like increased risk for obesity, blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and more.

Best Workout Mask

Whether you want to head back to the gym or run around the track, you want to feel safe. We like UnderArmour’s sports mask. It fits great, has their “skin-cooling” technology and you can really breathe in it. 

UnderArmour Sportsmask, $30

A Gym Backpack

This workout backpack helps you be hands-free. The neoprene bass from Dagne Dover is chic, and the fabric is super easy to wipe down. Plus their backpacks are comfortable to wear and include a removable shoe bag.

Dange Dover Dakota Backpack, 3 sizes starting at $135

The Ultimate Dry Shampoo

Sneaking in a workout in between Zoom calls? You’ll need a great dry shampoo. Living Proof’s is beloved by instagram stars, celebrity stylists and essentially every magazine beauty editor around. 

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, $36

Stream ALL Your Favorite Workouts

Neou is one of our fave on-demand workout apps. You get over 2,000 different classes from Bootcamp and HIIT to Dance and Yoga. Plus, our very own Keri Glassman has partnered with their Clean Eats nutrition program where you some of her best recipes to go along with your workouts.

Feel the Music

Every workout needs great music to motivate you. Bose wireless headphones’ sound quality and battery life are epic…with a great price point.

Bose SoundSport® Wireless Earbuds, $89

Run, Run, Wild, Wild

It’s like you are literally running on a cloud. Adidas Cloudfoam running shoe is lightweight, supportive and cute. You feel like you can walk, run (or skip!) for miles.
