Need help finding a healthy gift for the holidays? From November 12th through December 12th, I will be featuring great fitness-related gift ideas- stocking stuffers and beyond! I've searched long and hard for gifts that fit the bill for people who like to exercise and appreciate fitness!
Day 26| Foot Rubz by Surefoot
Feet. Most people would feel so much better if they only paid a little more attention to how they treat their feet.
Ideal Gift Candidate?
- Really, anyone. But mainly athletes, or exercise enthusiasts who spend a lot of time using their feet to push, jump, pedal, bounce or kick.
What is it?
It's a small 160-point massage ball used to help relieve tension from the many acupressure points found at the bottom of the feet.
Why it made the list?
The feet are so critical to our health. Much of the tension that occurs in the lower extremeties works its way upward. So a nagging injury or tight muscle that anchors in your foot could very well be a culrpit in something going on in you shins, knees or hips. Taking a minute or two to roll out the bottoms of your feet could help to relieve tension, and potentially injury as well!
How much is it?
Where can I get it?
I found my Foot Rubz at REI.
