Fathers Day Gifts Ideas for the Fitness Fanatic at Best Buy

My husband is the type of man that doesn’t let age slow him down. It seems the more birthdays he has, the more he pushes back and strives to do more. A few years back he decided to take up running again. Although he has serious knee pain issues in the past, it was something that sparked a fire in him and he wanted to try again to perfect it.


Starting with only a few miles at a time under his belt his fire, determination and drive pushed him further and further. He took running classes to correct his stride/step and pushed on and up to trail running and a half marathon. Just a few years later he’s completed a 10k, a half marathon, a 20 mile trail run, a couple of marathons and he is now training for a 50k trail race later this year. That is a tad over 30 miles (my feet and knees ache just thinking about it)!!!!

I am incredibly proud of this man and with Fathers Day just around the corner I have been window shopping at Best Buy for items that would help or enhance his running dreams.

The GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Action Camcorder is a product he’s mentioned a few times in the past as one he might enjoy wearing when running a race. He’s tried to video a little with his cell phone but it’s clumsy and awkward, so it just went back into his belt. I would love to surprise him with one for Fathers Day.

I also noticed the Lifeproof Cell Phone Case in the gifts under $100 category. A Life Proof case for his smart phone would be an amazing gift. My husband runs rain, sleet, snow or shine. Knowing his phone is protected from water, drops and life would be amazing.

In the under $50 category the Modal Bluetooth Speaker would be a nice gift for him to use when he doesn’t feel like wearing headphones or even when he’s working in the garden or the garage.

There are so many incredible options at Best Buy and with FREE shipping on qualified orders and their Low-Price guarantee I can feel confident I am getting a great deal on my purchase.

Here are a few more items that might make a great gift for the Fitness Fanatic in your life.

    My hubby wants a GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition Action Camcorder. I’am also thinking about getting him a GPS for his bike., he loves bike riding through the trails and park close to our home. Great list here.
