For some, this will be a little expensive. If you are only one of a number of children you could consider getting your other siblings to contribute to the membership for a year.
You could even let him know that it covers his birthday, Christmas, Easter, and fathers day. Why not if it is something he really wants but cannot afford it.

If your father is into new technology a set of bodyweight scales like the ones pictured above will be a dream come true.

Getting Fit Outdoors
For some, it is all about the outdoors when maintaining their health and fitness. Having the correct gear for all weather conditions is one priority as is safety.
We should also not forget fun because there is more to health and fitness than just walking, jogging or running.
* Outdoor Adventures
Fitness outdoor adventure gift cards are awesome because your dad can choose his very own adventure.
He can also call on friends or workout partners to join him. Not only does he get to work out but maybe even try a new sport or adventure.
If your dad is an adrenaline junkie here are a couple of suggestions to whet the appetite.
- Bobsled down an Olympic course
- Go overnight caving

- Extreme mountain biking
- Waterfall rappelling

Virtual Money or Subscriptions
* iTunes or Spotify
If your father has not yet joined this century in regards to purchasing items virtually like his favorite music to work out with.
Maybe it is time to set him up with an iTunes or Spotify account and show him how easy it is to purchase or access the music he loves.
* Magazine Subscription
If your dad is a little self-conscious he will definitely not be buying weight loss or gym magazines for himself.
A subscription where it gets delivered to his home will make him feel a lot better about obtaining these magazines.
One added bonus is that with some publications you usually get them delivered to your home a few days or even a week before they are available for sale in stores.
Something for the Kitchen
Some fathers have no interest in pounding the pavement or heading for the gym. Their health-conscious activities are geared more toward daily and practical matters. Such as food preparation and cooking.
* Himalayan Salt Cooking Block
The Himalayan salt cooking band serving blocks give food extra flavor without extra calories.
You can cook on it and serve dishes hot. Alternatively put in the refrigerator and serve dishes such as seafood on it.
To take a look click on the image above you will be surprised at the price of this little beauty.
* Food Scale
As with the bodyweight scale, food scales are at a whole new level. They are not expensive but are very handy and come in all shapes and sizes.
* Measuring Cups
Measuring cups and spoons are a must. If your dad is just starting out he probably won’t have a good set.
You can find them matching usually inside a measuring jug that doubles as a storage container for all the measurement tools.
* Storage Containers
Storage containers for ingredients or freezing leftovers. Find some in various sizes that are also suitable for the fridge, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.
* Spice Sets or Racks
I love a good rotating spice rack. Most of us tend to use the same spices over and over so he does not need a massive spice rack. They are also reasonably priced if money is tight.
A whiteboard or corkboard where he can record his progress, keep recipes or ingredient shopping lists.
If he doesn’t enjoy cooking simple recipe book with few ingredients is the one to get. If he does enjoy cooking find out what food he is into at the moment and purchase a lovely book (with illustrations) for him to test out new recipes.

* Home Gym
Has your dad got his own home gym or workout area? I love this wall decal for pushing us to work out when we probably do not feel like it.
There is no way you can forget to workout every day with one of these on the wall.
This stylish matt finish one is made in America and is self-adhesive but can be easily removed when needed.
* Ear Seeds
Auriculotherapy is known as Ear Seed Therapy.
Basically, it works by stimulating acupuncture points on your ear. It is believed that the ear houses the microsystem of our bodies.

This protocol also works to combat the cravings and emotional behaviors that lead to excessive eating. The product provides all instructions and a packet lasts for 4 to 6 weeks.

* Goal Chart/Diary
If your father is really motivated and an organized type of person he will absolutely use tools such as these. You will find some awesome ones to suit his interests and are bound to keep him on track.
If your dad is not the type to work out alone and not join a gym why not introduce him to the many smartphone applications available.
They provide a guide, valuable information regarding the chosen sport as well as inspiration every day. Some even have support groups available that he can join and make new friends or workout buddies.
It does not take much these days to make informed green choices. Whether it is choosing plastic over glass, disposable over washing and reusing containers, cooking for yourself over takeaway or growing your own.
You will also usually save money in the long run so here are a couple of suggestions but the “Go Green” choices can be made on many products you can purchase. Including kitchen items as well as clothing such as choosing bamboo products.
* Water Filtration Bottles
We all should be reaching for water as our first choice of beverage. Particularly when you workout or are in a weight loss routine.
What better way than to have your own personal water filtration bottle that you can fill up anywhere anytime.
There are many available these days. I myself have always used the Brita systems purely because the replacement cartridges are readily available.
Another added bonus is helping to save the planet by not using plastic unnecessarily.
* Herb Gardens (Indoor or Outdoor)
If your dad loves to garden why not encourage him to grow his own herbs for the beautiful healthy recipes he will prepare.
There is more to life than just herbs! Here are a couple of other suggestions:-
- Spicy herbs
- Perpetual lettuce, spinach these work the same as traditional herbs the more you pinch off the more that grows
- Tubs or pots of the small grafted lemon, lime or other citrus trees – these will grow on small patios, decks or balconies

Gift of Love (DIY)
If money is tight you can always set up something special for your dad. What about cooking him his favorite dinner and then settle down for the night watching his favorite movie. (Go on you can watch it once more.)
What about arranging to have a day out – exercising of course! Invite some others along (surprise dad of course) make a real day out of it and have some fun catching up with others.
Arrange a hike or cycling route, make the lunch (get everyone else to bring their own), and do not forget that cupcake complete with a birthday candle!
Your dad will love the effort and thought put into a day with you.
