Stylish Wellness Gifts for Family & Friends, Plus My Hoop-larious Performance on CBS!

Health - Fitness

Video - CBS Live From The Couch - "Workout Wonderland"

Why give the gift of Fitness & Wellness this holiday season?

Because December is one of the best times to get inspired and motivated for better health. First of all, January is right around the corner along with all your resolutions that you may or may not make until the very last minute. 2nd, December marks the month of persuasion. Convince someone you love (or just like a lot) to feel better, look better and MOVE MORE by forcing them to unwrap a gift that will jump start their journey. They won't complain as long as it's stylish.

Check out the fit gifts I featured on CBS's "Live From The Couch" show in the video above. I love taking fitness on television, including all the amazing fit companies whose products I'm so in love with. I usually don't get too nervous in front of the camera but CBS's Live From The Couch show is craaaaazy! Lotsa cameras, lotsa lights and lotsa of hurried ACTION! 

But talking about fitness trends is what I do best. It gives me an unparalleled high. (Natural highs rock)

I didn't have much time to pull an outfit together before going on the show...

But sometimes when you're under pressure, that's when things come together the best. I was really inspired by Kelly Dooley's latest collection for her line BodyRock Sport, so I asked permission to borrow her fit look and she was thrilled to share!

I wore BodyRock Sport's new Donna Moto Jacket in gold along with my hip hugging Jessica Moto Leggings and a semi-sheer charcoal tank. I most love the Moto jacket from the back. Impeccable design.

Then it was time to HULA!

Carolina Bermudez and co-hosts love their Fit Minutes and I wanted to give them one to remember! Hula hooping is my favorite travel workout because I own the Infinity Collapsible Weighted Hula Hoop which folds in half, small enough to take on a plane! It weighs approximately 2 pounds and once you get the hang of it and find your favorite moves, it's a real core shaper!


I love how Carolina and I are busting our asses here while the other 2 hosts are chillin', ha!

And yes, the Moto Jacket is sleek enough to hula in. I think I was asked 5 times if I was going to take my jacket off by the staff there, and I was like, "no, why?"

Win yourself a Fit Gift! Enter my GIVEAWAY!

I'm gifting an Aspen Yoga Mat (in purple Buddha) and a Vespertine Vesp (in pink), 2 of the items featured in Workout Wonderland on Live From The Couch.

To win, this is what you have to do:

Going to pick 2 winners on Wednesday, January 2nd of 2013. Good luck!

Say what's on your mind!

Just wanted to say how awesome you are - you made those segments look beyond fun!!! Makes me want to go hula hoop right now :D

MizzFIT December 18th, 2012 11:23PM

Hi Liz,

Ha! You're so damn cute. Get a hula and we can hula together but apart. Maybe even Facetime while doing so. How weird is that?


Liz Stark December 19th, 2012 1:31AM

Hahaha that would be awesome - I must admit, I've never been able to hula hoop for more than a few seconds, so you'd win for sure :D

Frydel December 19th, 2012 1:45AM

Great segment. Would love an Aspen Yoga Mat. Aspen Yoga Mats was started in 2011

MizzFIT December 19th, 2012 1:57AM

Hi Frydel!

Excellent. You're entered for the giveaway. Good luck!


Theresa December 19th, 2012 7:10PM

HI MizzFit!

Take 3 - The thing I liked about Wendy Moore is that she was able to combine her sales/marketing experience with her fitness background and start a business. She reminds me of you and I find women entrepreneurs to be extremely impressive.

You would be proud! I ramped up my workouts this month and have been doing yoga 2-3 times a week to help stretch me out. It's been great! I'd love the Aspen Mat because b/w holiday travel, gifts for others and day-to-day expenses, it's a splurge I typically wouldn't get for myself. But like a nice outfit that makes you want to work out more, I think the Aspen Mat would motivate me to get my Downward Dog on even more. ;-)

Followed you in FB, Twitter and Pinterest. Love your ideas! xoxo


Un abrazo,

Laura Kovall December 20th, 2012 8:42PM

LOVE LOVE the Donna Moto Jacket! And you rocked the Hula in it!


MizzFIT December 22nd, 2012 5:27PM

Hi Laura from BBFT,

Thank you so much. I felt like I was stylin' and glad to get your approval as I know how important fitness fashion is to you too! Hope you and Sophia are having an amazingly fit holiday and New Year's!


MizzFIT December 22nd, 2012 5:33PM

Hi Theresa,

I love your comments! Thank you for praising fitness entrepreneurs and for looking up Wendy's journey! I love my Aspen Yoga Mat and think you'd love it too. You're entered for the giveaway and have won my adoration & appreciation. Best of luck winning that mat.

MizzFIT December 29th, 2012 7:22AM

Hi Britt,

Kelly really knows how to nail a fitness jacket. Immaculate design and attention to movement. That's why I love BodyRock Sport! Thanks so much for your comment and compliments. I'm finally feeling better and enjoying my vacay! Have a great New Year, my fit friend!


Tomika Altman-Lewis December 31st, 2012 1:16AM


I would love to enter the contest and win the Aspen Yoga Mat. I think it's awesome that Wendy combined her love of fitness and marketing to create an inspiring mat.

Hi Tomika,

A) Got you entered! B) Isn't great how 1 career can lead to another like in Wendy's case. That is also the story of my life and transition to MizzFIT too! C) Thanks for visiting and I hope you check out more articles!

I'd love to win the Aspen Yoga Mat. I think its great that Wendy came up with the name while hiking in Aspen. Nature really does help in all decision making!

MizzFIT January 2nd, 2013 10:52PM


The good news is that it's time to pick this article's giveaway winners! Congratzz to Theresa (winner of the Aspen Yoga Mat)!

The bad news is that no one has entered the giveaway for the Vespertine vest. So it's still up for grabs! Who wants to win it?

Theresa, please reach out to me with address when you can!

Katia January 5th, 2013 12:26AM

Hi MizzFIT!
I want the HAUTE COUTURE/reflecture vespertine vesp! I love that it presents a fashionable way to stay safe while running or biking at dusk in the city. And not only is it recycled, thus rendering it planet friendly, but it is also made in my very own NYC. Go green, Go New York, Go VESP!

MizzFIT January 5th, 2013 11:38PM

Hi Katia,

Well then, I declare you the official winner of the Vespertine Vesp! Please wear it in good "safe" health. I trust you won't drink and run in it, lol. Get in touch with me so I can send you your prize ASAP! Thank you!
