Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the FIT Dad


This year, forget the predictable (trendy electronics that will sit in a drawer until next Father’s Day) and gift Dad something that will motivate him to live a healthy and active lifestyle. Gifting the man in your life something that will get him outdoors or release endorphins at the gym isn’t something you can put a price tag on. In my humble opinion, if you have your health, you have everything! This year, think outside the box and choose a gift for Dad that will inspire health, fitness and happiness. Here’s a round up of some of the best gifts for the FIT dad.


Allen Edmonds Jack Nicklaus Murfield Village 2.0 Golf Shoes: Style, sophistication and function meld together perfectly with this update of the classic golf shoe. In addition to being made in the USA, this shoe features an interchangeable Ortholite athletic insole for cushioning, comfort, and breathability. The “wave” fabric lining provides internal breathable waterproof membrane and the wide-sole platform enables greater balance and weight-shift support, so dad won’t miss a drive or putt!

There’s dozens of different exercises you can do on the TRX so you won’t get bored, and with this set, dad can work out in the comfort of his own home, office or even backyard.

Tower Adventurer 2 Inflatable SUP Board: For the dads who love being out on the water, what could be better than giving him his very own stand up paddle board?! Not only is paddle boarding extremely fun, but it’s also an incredible total body workout that works your arms, core, gluts, legs…you name it. What’s great about an inflatable SUP board is that storage and transportation is much easier, especially if you live in a city. This particular SUP board is 10’4″ x 6″ so it floats a little more weight and goes a little faster.
