Take the stress out of Christmas shopping with these healthier Christmas gift ideas!

Ahh, the joys of Christmas shopping. Although the reality for most is, sadly this annual activity can be anything but joyful!

Even if you're one of the few who decided to stay ahead of the game; prioritising your fitness and health from maintaining your activity through the winter (all hail our fabulous Bootcampers!) Christmas shopping can still be a draining and expensive aspect of the 'most wonderful time of the year'. 

So I hereby share with you my top healthy Christmas gift idea selection, to help make your Christmas shop that little bit less stressful. As well as provide you with some ideas, for that person always so difficult to buy for (we all know at least one!) 😉

A Beautiful Bottle from My Beautiful Bottle 

My beautiful bottle: southampton personal trainer gen preece boot camp

Created by our wonderful friend Aimie Smith, who remains one of the best personal trainers I've ever met, the entire stunning range of My Beautiful Bottle glass drinking bottles are now available to buy direct from my Park Gate Personal Training studio!

Perfect for holding your daily dose of H2o, juice and smoothie, they look and feel absolutely gorgeous and every personal training client and boot camp attendee who has bought one so far absolutely adores now having something so lovely to drink from ☺️

They tell me having a Beautiful Bottle even encourages them to drink more water and make sure they always have a daily juice. Who wouldn't want to receive the gift of positive vibes, good health and inspiration, which is exactly what these stunning drinking bottles were designed for!

LIMITED CHRISTMAS OFFER: 2 bottles for £24 = that's a beautiful 25% off! (Usually £16 each)
(And for every bottle sold, £1 is donated to the Gardens for Health International charity to help feed the people of Rwanda fresh organic food!) Get in the smug zone and order yours TODAY before the remaining stock all sell out! (They will!!) Just let me know which design and lid colour you'd like ☺️

Olive Oil from Your VERY OWN Olive Tree

I LOVE this company! Pomora make the absolute BEST olive oil I have ever tasted. You adopt (or foster) an olive tree and are sent a variety of olive oils made from it's olives, all year round! Now THAT is a unique gift, for that someone who has everything  😉 

Pomora's goal is to create a community of food lovers and food producers, who share an ethical vision. People who care about high quality, wholesome foods of known provenance; people who care about mother earth and treating her with respect; people who care about and look after each other.

Which is what makes this gift so very special! Contact Alun at Pomora today quoting 'PT Gen' to receive your certificate and first set of delicious oils before Christmas. My favourite is the rosemary, which will be playing a big role in much of my Christmas cooking!

Discounted Winter Workout Gear

How do our brilliant Bootcampers keep their fitness going, even when the weather gets colder?

They all have one thing in common: the decision to let NOTHING stand in their way of getting fitter, healthier and leaner! And this includes colder weather: as they all work so hard, they build up a sweat in no time - so the cold is only a problem if you're standing still (which tends not to happen!)

They all agree there's something pretty liberating about working out in the fresh air, especially during the winter months! They also feel happy and proud to be ahead of the game by the time Christmas arrives 😉

Our lovely friends at Eastleigh's Alton Sports enable this even further by providing our Bootcampers with hefty discounted winter workout gear! (Even though many of the layers tend to come off pretty quickly...!)

So check out their amazing range of leading brands, all designed to ensure your fitness and health doesn't have to take a backseat this winter, especially when there are so many amazing opportunities to enhance it even further - and feel as amazing as our Bootcampers do! 

Lunch at Southampton's Best Restaurant

Or possibly the UK's...?

If you've ever spoken to me, you may well be aware OffBeet Food is my No1 place to eat. Possibly EVER. As well as being run a lovely friendly bunch, who care for everyone's health and well-being, they have been absolutely groundbreaking in the healthy and innovative gluten-free and vegan delights they create for us every week.

Their menu always contains the freshest produce (often arriving straight from the farm the same morning!) and changes with the seasons. 

I challenge ANYONE to visit and not be blown away by the phenomenal gastronomic delights, so a voucher for a meal or snack is certainly a fail-safe gift option. Think Michelin star standard food but without the Michelin star prices! And as for the raw vegan cakes...just see my Instagram!!

Contact Pete or Mitch today on 01329 833731, quoting PT Gen. I might just see you there...

Many of our valued Bootcampers started with us following receiving a Boot camp voucher for Christmas. They tell us it was just the tiny push they needed to get themselves started on their health and fitness journey. And, like our lovely superstar Caroline pictured above, they never look back!
