Disclosure: In the past I may have received items from one or more of the companies on this list for review purposes. For this post however, I have not received any items nor have I been compensated in any way. I just genuinely love all of these products and think you will too! This post does however contain affiliate links which help support my running habit.
This week marks the official start of the holiday season and children everywhere are frantically putting together their holiday wishlists. There is no reason for kids to have all the fun, so I put together my own wishlist! And mine is a list with a fit twist!
Ready to see what made my list? Here we go! (In no particular order.)
1. Spartan Race Entry
This year I ran my first Spartan Race and then I went on to achieve my first Spartan Trifecta! Aroo! Spartan is hands down my favorite obstacle course race and I believe it is something that everyone should try. Not to mention there really is no better present than a race entry, especially a Spartan Race entry! Experiences are always greater than things and I guarantee you will carry a Spartan experience with you forever! Unless of course, you run the Las Vegas Spartan Race, then that will stay in Vegas. 😉
Spartan Race was nice enough to give me a free entry to give to one of you! The race entry is good for any Spartan Race in the continental US in an open heat with a non-confirmed start time. Use the Rafflecopter form to enter to win!

2. Varidesk I have been lusting over a Varidesk for quite sometime now. And yes, Chris knows about my infatuation and he is okay with it. While I recognize that they are a bit of an investment, I truly believe that they are one of the best investments you can make for yourself if you have a job that requires you to be at a desk for the majority of the day. Why waste away in a chair when you can stand up (and sit down when you want) and burn some calories while you work? I love that Varidesk goes on top of your existing desk so it is far better priced that those other companies who expect you to replace your whole desk. This would be a great present for anyone on your list (or for yourself). 3. ShowerPill Athletic Body Wipe You may recall the review I did a while back ago on the ShowerPill Wipes. These wipes are perfect for those times when you either don’t have enough time to take a shower after your workout or you don’t have access to a shower after your workout. I can vouch that they clean up the sweat and dirt and leave you smelling fresh! The fresh smelling people over at ShowerPill want to make sure that one of you is always smelling fresh as well! They have asked me to give away one box of ShowerPill wipes to one of you! (Continental US only.) Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter and in the meantime use code runner10 to save 10% off your order of ShowerPill wipes both on their website and on Amazon through December 31st 2014! a Rafflecopter giveaway
4. Stitch Fix
I know I don’t have to explain how much I LOVE Stitch Fix but maybe I should explain how this fits on a fitness minded wish list. For me there is no better reward for staying on track with my fitness goals than getting some new clothes. Clothes that make me look good and feel good. Obviously this is for women but you guys know what I am talking about too, I know you do.
I am giving away one $20 Stitch Fix card (that I have purchased) to one reader! Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter and for those of you looking to sign up for Stitch Fix or to gift a Stitch Fix subscription to someone click HERE.

5. WIN Detergent WIN Detergent is the only detergent that I use on my workout clothes. It really does get the stink out like no other detergent I have ever used before and there really is nothing worse than workout clothes that are stinky before you workout out in them. For a full recap of my thoughts on WIN, click here. WIN wants one of you to be stink free this holiday season by letting me give away a bottle of WIN detergent to one of you! (Continental US only.) To enter use the Rafflecopter widget below. You can also use the code WINGIVE2 for one dollar off single bottles of WIN detergent purchases. a Rafflecopter giveaway
Being fit in my opinion, means working out AND eating healthy. An easy and fun way to eat healthy is by signing up for HelloFresh. You can get a shipment of three meals every week (or less often if you prefer) with fresh and healthy meals to fuel you and your workouts. Just about everything you need is included in the box to make the meals and all the meals are extremely tasty and fresh. To read my recap of my first HelloFresh box, click here. To save $20 off your first box use code UNYFA9.
7. The Fat Burn Revolution Book
If you don’t have a copy of The Fat Burn Revolution by Julia Buckley you are really missing out! This is my favorite fitness book and the workouts in it are the bomb! Julia’s approach to health and fitness is very down to earth and simple. No matter where you are in your fitness journey you can use Julia’s program to achieve your fitness goals.
Julia was nice enough to provide me with a copy of her book to give away to one of you! Use the Rafflecopter form below to enter. Good luck!

9. Monkey Do Project
For some people, having a “fit” holiday means something very different from what you and I might think of it as. Sometimes it is a simple as having basic needs met like a warm place to sleep at night and food to eat.
Odds are if you are reading this, you probably have your basic needs (and then some) met every day. But that is not the case for everyone. It is a sad but true situation that is happening right where we live but you can help out and make a difference!
My friend Jackie (we go back to B’s toddler years) started a non-profit called the Monkey Do Project which helps the people of Appalachia, which the U.S. government defines as the poorest area of our nation. There are many ways to help out from donating money to donating the small toiletries from hotels that you stay at that you may not even use.
I realize that there are lots of charities that you could choose to support this year but why not choose to support a smaller charity run by a passionate person that will make sure every cent gets put to the best possible use?
