Fitness gifts for dear ol’ dad

- June 13th, 2011

Just six more shopping days left until Father’s Day.

Here are some ideas from GoFit, the nation’s leading handheld fitness manufacturer:

%31_multipart%3F2_imageFOR THE WORKAHOLIC: Is Dad bored in the boardroom? When he’s workin’ hard to bring home the bacon, sometimes a gym sesh isn’t going to be in order after a long day on the job. Be a sport and help him work his physique as he burns the midnight oil with the GoFit Core Stability Disk.

As seen on the TODAY SHOW, the Stability Disk is an excellent way for Dad to engage his core while he is stuck sitting in his office chair all day. He can even increase balance and develop stability while he’s at it! The 13-inch GoFit Core Stability Disk is made of easy-to-clean, soft red vinyl and is portable and easy to store.

In addition, the Core Stability Disk is an amazing way to help him reach his fitness goals at home or at the gym. The disk increases the difficulty as your ability improves. The smooth side of the disk is less difficult, whereas the textured “reflexology” side has a higher degree of difficulty, offering a more challenging workout. Firmness is also adjustable. (Needle included. Air pump not included).
