2012 Fathers Day: Active & Fitness Gifts

Shake Weight

The men’s Shake Weight is a mere 5 lbs and can be used anywhere, including at home and in the office.  A product this simple and versatile makes it easy for dad to work out (for just 6 mins a day) anywhere that’s convenient.

The revolutionary product has proven its legitimacy by utilizing new workout technology called dynamic inertia, which can increase muscle activity by nearly 300% compared to a standard dumbbell, helping to achieve “two tickets to the gun show” that every man works towards!

AfterShokz Mobile Sport Headphones

What makes it hot: You can stay motivated by music while you run, without completely blocking out everything else. Since AfterShokz headphones rest outside the ear, users are able to also hear ambient noises such as oncoming traffic, car horns, ambulances or other warning noises, potentially preventing accidents. When running with a companion, you can still have conversations; when running with a stroller, you can hear your child cry; when running alone, you can easily hear someone or something approaching you. Headphones that cover the ear and earbuds that nest inside the ear significantly restrict a dad’s ability to hear these important sounds. The in-line microphone allows smartphone users to pause music to take or make a call. AfterShokz are perfect for anytime use: which means Dad can jam to tunes while working at home, and still be able to hear his kids shouting good night from the next room.
