Mindith's Strong Mom Holiday Wish List

 

1. StrongFirst Body Weight Course/Strong First Body Weight Cert - Price TBA
wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideasNow that I am officially loving my bodyweight workouts, it would be great to train and learn with the best of the best, Pavel Tsatsouline. This certification sets the bar high boasting that, "to graduate from the body weight training instructor course, a student must be able to do a strict one-arm pushup" And that is the ladies’ standard. Hopefully Strong First will open up a few workshop in Southern California in 2013.

As a mother of four children, three of whom are boys these leggings would be a huge hit in my house and at the carpool.

 

3. Professional Series 750 Vitamix Blender - $698.00

I currently use the older model of the Vitamix blender almost daily for making healthy smoothies for my family. I would love to experiment with the "Professional Series" and try new recipes like making my own almond butter and almond milk.

 

4. Free Standing Hammock - $728.98
wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideasWho doesn't love a hammock? I have always wanted one, but did not have the yard set up to make it happen. This freestanding hammock solves that problem and still can support a heavy load for a couple or family, up to 450 pounds. The hand crafted cypress wood stand is also an attractive and durable feature.

 

wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideas5. lululemon Anti Slip Mat - $68.00
I am a die hard Manduka Pro fan but after hearing so much about this mat I would love to give it a go. It is supposed to be great for sweaty Vinyasa or Power Yoga class due to the polyurethane coating. I especially like the idea of the antimicrobial additive to prevent nasty mold and mildew.

 

6. Rehband 7751 Knee Support - $36.95
I already own a pair of these knee sleeves but would love an extra pair when mine need a wash. I wear these for yoga, kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, and anything physical were I need extra support and warmth in my knees.

 

7. Yogi Toes Recycled Prism Skidless Yoga Towel - $64.00
wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideasSliding around on a yoga mat is no fun in many of the heated and sweaty yoga classes. I have tried many different yoga towels but this is supposed to do the trick due to the tiny silicone dots on the bottom that grip your mat.

 

8. Wellness Mama Meal Plans - ?
wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideasI missed signing up for the Wellness Mama Meal Plans last time Katie offered them because I was not sure if I would use it on a regular basis. I have been using her recipes and they are great for healthy, gluten-free, paleo-ish family meals. When she opens up new enrollment I really want to be on the list. Users have access to her meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, forums, and much more.

 

wish list, gift list, guide gift, athlete gift ideas, fitness gift ideas9. No-Brainer Mat Strap lululemon - $16.00

I have been through numerous mat bags that either break, are not big enough, or are hard to use. This strap is made from thick nylon and has a velcro closure on both ends that adjusts to securely fit pretty much any sized mat, including the big Manduka Pro.

 

10. Deglon Meeting Knife Set - $840.00
Since I cook for a large family at least five nights per week, having a great set of knives is a must. The Deglon Meeting Knife Set is a set of nested knives made of high quality stainless steel. The set includes four knives: a paring knife, a utility knife, a chef knife, and a slicer.
