Christmas is over and we're coming up to a new year! If you have some newly acquired gift cards or cash from Christmas, why not put them to good use by purchasing something that will help you get in better shape?
Here are 7 awesome health and fitness products you need for 2017:
There are so many options for every athlete out there. Wireless headphones have become the craze and the best, and cheapest, place to start for a solid pair is Amazon. These headphones from COULAX are not only wireless, but they are also sweat proof which is perfect for any fitness fanatic who goes hard at the gym.
Need something with a bit more support? Try this sweat proof option from Skullcandy that offers a variety of colors! There are many other amazing headphones to pick from, one of which to consider if you’re in a colder region is this ear warmer/headphone duo!
Whether you’re looking for an everyday step tracker or something that will track literally everything, a FitBit is a great option for anyone on any fitness level.
Not all of their options are waterproof like the FitBit Flex 2, but they’re worth the money if you’re interested in pursuing a healthy lifestyle.
Another great gift idea that offers a wide variety for any athlete out there. Honestly, if you want a decent shoe for whichever activity it is you do, you may need to spend a few extra dollars.

4. Water Bottles
Definitely a great gift for anyone who lives, eats, and breathes the gym. Like with the headphones, the best place to start is on Amazon. One of the coolest water bottles to own is one that also includes an infuser with it. This 32oz option is fantastic for when you want to have citrus flavor to your water. Another rad bottle, found on Amazon, is the Hydrapak Stash Water Bottle. This 1 liter water bottle is perfect for any camping trip or adventure, not only due to its storage but because it’s collapsible!
Another newer option for a water bottle that’ll keep water cool for 24 hours and hot for half the time is the S’Well bottles. They come in all shapes and sizes and are absolutely beautiful.
If you’ve got a fitness friend who indulges in smoothies and shakes, then a blender is probably the best gift to give. One of the best blenders out there is currently the Oster My Blend blender. It’s perfect for making smoothies and going out for the day because the blending bottle has detachable tops that allowing for sipping as the day goes on.
