The NBC 5 Fitness Team has you in mind this holiday season with our favorite fitness gifts! We have low-high price gifts that can fit your particular budget.
Saran's pick: Gorilla-Grips. Say goodbye to calluses and hello to Gorilla-Grips! These grips are made of textured high-grade leather pads that fit across your palm. They're secured by durable, finger-gripping elastic loops that make for easy on and off and adjust to the optimal positioning of your palms or fingers in a snap! They also have multiple uses; they can be used most importantly when lifting weights, shoveling snow (with Ski gloves over them!), riding a bike or even lugging heavy shopping bags! On a personal note: I wear my Gorilla-Grips when I'm just training clients because they make it easier to handle weights and my clients always want to try them! These are also great for men who don't want to be embarrassed when shaking hands in business meetings! Once you try the Gorilla-Grips, you won't want to use anything else. A percentage of the profits from the sale of every pair of Gorilla-Grips goes to the African Wildlife Foundation, the leading conservation organization working to protect endangered mountain gorillas in their natural habitat. These are the perfect gift for anyone! Purchase yours today at www.gorilla-grips.com
