Though this may seem like more of a holiday gadget gift guide than anything, the fit people in your life will value your contribution. Two basic suggestions when buying for the exercise nut in your circle:
1. Don’t buy them shoes, as improper shoe selection for their feet and gate may in fact cause serious injuries.
2. Avoid buying them specific clothing articles unless you are CERTAIN you know their size. (That could be embarrassing, whether you buy too large or too small.)
