Fitness and sports equipment industry leader releases 2012 Gift Guide
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – It’s that time of year again, which means holiday get-togethers, celebrating with family and friends, and yes – gift-giving. And isn’t holiday shopping so much simpler and less stressful when you suit the present to the person?
For example, do you have a fitness enthusiast on your list? If so, you’re in luck. Power Systems, the sports and fitness equipment industry leader, just released its 2012 Holiday Gift Guide – jam-packed full of gift ideas perfect for that fitness aficionado on your list. Here are a few unique gift ideas from Power Systems to consider this year:
- Dumbbells: Dumbbells are an essential part of any fitness routine. They are versatile, easy to use and compact, which makes them great for use in the home or at the gym.
- Airope: Versatility and convenience make the Airope a great addition for working out alone or as part of a group. It provides a cardio workout and core strength training for its users.
- VersaClub: The VersaClub is a terrific tool for a whole body workout, as it lets the user train in all three planes of motion to increase strength, flexibility and stamina.
- Medicine Balls: Whether working out alone, in a group or with a partner, medicine balls are excellent for any fitness routine. Using a medicine ball can help develop core strength and improve coordination, balance and endurance.
- Stability Balls: Balance, strength, and coordination training are some of the best ways to get in shape, and a high-quality stability ball is the tool for the job. Stability balls can be used in a variety of different ways at home, at the gym or even in the office.
- Kettlebells: Ask any trainer what piece of equipment he or she can’t live without and chances are “kettlebells” will be the answer. Kettlebells provide a full body workout – cardio and strength – and improve balance for the user. The small size and ease of use make this accessory a great gift for trainers and trainees alike.
“Gift giving truly makes us all feel good,” said Julie Pauletto, president of Power Systems. “And when you give a tailored gift like an airope or kettlebells to the fitness gurus on your list, they feel good, too. Seeing your friend or family member’s health benefit from your gift is the ultimate gratification.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s research found strengthening exercises are both safe and effective for men and women of all ages, include those who are not in perfect health. In fact, people with health concerns – including heart disease or arthritis – often benefit the most from an exercise program that includes lifting weights a few times a week. Regular training can even reduce the signs and symptoms of numerous diseases and chronic conditions, including: arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, obesity, back pain and depression.
Power Systems is committed to making a real difference in the health, fitness and performance needs of people at every level of experience. In fact, the 2012 Gift Guide features only “real people” in the photos published in the catalog. These are “real people” – people of all shapes and sizes, ages and abilities. The company wants to change the nation’s attitudes toward exercise and fitness, to focus on health rather than image – and the company is doing so by offering realistic examples and encouragement through its marketing materials.
