You’re probably getting hammered with gift guides this time of year. This one is different and I hope you’ll give it a look.
What’s different? Most you’ll see are either direct marketing campaigns or indirect by way of paid affiliate relationships. In this case, every brand, product, and service below is one I personally use and recommend. I even have affiliate or other business interests with a number of these companies because I believe in getting behind what works. But in this case I’m sending you directly to their websites – no schemes, no shenanigans, just best-in-class products that would be an asset to your training and lifestyle.
This guide is going out on Cyber Monday so you may still be able to get some holiday incentives. Regardless, every one is well worth its full price and then some.
Any questions or if I can personally be of help, please don’t hesitate to reach out – send me a DM on Instagram. Otherwise, enjoy your holidays, health, family, and continued abundance!
