Give the Gift of Wellness

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Do you have a fitness fanatic on your gift list this year? Then I have some of the greatest DVDs and fitness apparel for you to give! Give the gift of wellness this holiday season!

Weight Watchers: Pick Your Spot Stability Ball DVD/VUDU Kit

$24.83

Tone your belly, butt, thighs and more! The stability ball is one of the most popular fitness tools around for good reason: it adds bonus core strengthening and toning to any exercise. You probably won't even realize it, but just maintaining your balance on the ball will cause you to constantly activate your core muscles. And who doesn't want a tighter, more toned midsection?

This DVD features four different segments that use the stability ball and target specific areas of the body that most of us want to work: the belly, butt, thighs and upper body, especially the arms and shoulders. With beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of the exercises, it's easy to get started and go at your own pace. You can use a set three- to 10-pound dumbbells for the upper body workout; but if you are new to exercise or just jumping back in, you can start with no external resistance and build up from there. This is a simple way to tone up and a fun addition to your overall weight loss plan.

Weight Watchers: Pick Your Spot Stability Ball DVD/VUDU Kit:
  • Features 4 different segments that use the stability ball and target specific areas of the body
  • Beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of the exercises
  • Use a set 3 to 10 lb dumbbells for the upper body workout

Element: Stretch, Release and Restore Yoga Kit with Massage Roller Balls DVD/VUDU Kit

$19.36
Stretch tight muscles and roll out tension through self-massage with a massage ball. Applying gentle pressure and rolling on a massage ball can stimulate a restorative effect on the body, helping to improve blood flow, enhance joint health, reduce muscle fatigue and soreness, and relieve pain associated with chronic stress or repetitive motion injuries. The combination of yoga and massage ball therapy can help produce the ultimate anti-aging benefit: to feel more free and youthful in your body! This is the work that only you can do for yourself to release strain and stiffness in your body, let go of the existing tension patterns in your life and generate more vitality.
