Fat Burning Christmas Gifts

With Christmas gifts and New Year's Resolutions only a few weeks away, I want to give you my top 7 fat loss and fitness gift suggestions.

#7 - A Supplement gift certificate

As you know, I'm not a huge fan of supplements, and you don't need anything fancy, just fish oil capsules, a multi-vitamin, and maybe a quality protein powder. But the cost of these can add up quick, so a gift certificate to a reputable store can
really help.

#6 - A kettlebell

With a kettlebell, you can burn calories, do intervals, work your abs, build strength, and completely sculpt your body. Beginner women should start with a 12-18 pound kettlebell while beginner men can start with an 18 or 35 pound bell. And if you need kettlebell workouts for beginners or intermediate level, check out

#5 - Grass-fed beef

You can order this online and get amazing, high-quality beef sent straight to your door - or as a gift to family or friends. I've sent a box to beef-connoisseur Joel Marion, and he said the steaks were great.

#4 - A blender to create delicious blender drinks and meals

For about $60-$100 you can get a machine to blend up fruits, veggies, nuts, protein powder, and seeds to create a nutrient dense complete meal to overcome busy mornings or to create the perfect snack or dessert. Once you get started "blending your nutrition", you'll be amazed at what you can create.

#3 - A Gymboss Timer

This little timer allows you to set two different intervals and will alert you when each interval is up. It's a cheap - $20 - tool that will help you organize your workouts and maximize your results.

#2 - A Stability Ball

The stability ball is one of the most versatile fitness tools, and it allows you to exercise your abs and back of your legs better than any bodyweight only exercises.

#1 - Short, Burst Workouts

With short, burst interval and resistance training workouts, you can lose fat and sculpt your body in the comfort of your own home, without doing long, slow, boring cardio. It is a proven, guaranteed system that will help you lose belly fat and get a lean, hard, flat stomach. This is the #1 home gym workout technique and perfect for your New Year's fat loss program, especially if you hate going to busy gyms.

Obviously, Turbulence Training is my short, burst workout of choice.

So those are the 7 best fitness and fat loss workout presents you can give - or receive - this year.
