Top Fitness Gifts For Beginners And Advocates This Christmas

FitBit Fitness Tracking Device.
There are lots of calorie counting devices out there, but this one seems to be the easiest to use at the best price.  I haven't tried it, myself, but I've tried others.  My friend, who uses this device, says it's great because it's tiny, it syncs with devices great (and with MyFitnessPal.com), it's accurate, it has a great social function, and so much more. I'm thinking I may have to get one for myself (because I've been underwhelmed by the BodyBugg, BodyMedia, and Nike Fuel Band options).

Hey, Ladies, Worried About Bulk? Time For Some Myth Busters!
It’s time to put down the baby rattles (what I like to call those puny little weights) and actually challenge your body.  Worried about bulk!?  Worry not!  I can tell you that I constantly challenge myself to lift heavier, and the heavier I am lifting, the more definition and shape my body is getting.  I...

Do You Track Your Workouts For Results? Stop Wasting Your Time...

… and by “stop wasting your time,” I mean that you are wasting your time if you aren’t tracking your progress and results.
