There’s nothing wrong with a new tie, grilling utensils, or a bottle of aftershave. But if you want to move beyond the cliché Father’s Day gifts, give Dad (or your grandpa, uncle, cousin – whoever that special person in your life is) something that will keep on giving (gains) for years to come: an upgrade to his home gym.
Now. Of course, a top-of-the-line $1,000-plus power rack would render even the dad jokes speechless. But in reality, people spend an average of $174 on Father’s Day, according to the National Retail Federation. So, if you’ve got a normal budget but an above-normal (fitness-loving) father, here are five fun Father’s Day gifts he will love – all under $174.
1. Grip Strength and Groceries
Help Dad improve his grip, endurance, and overall strength with Farmer’s Walk Handles. Easily load these handles with weight plates – or load them with grocery bags after hitting the store, so he can carry in all the groceries in one trip. Ahh, so satisfying (and strengthening).
2. Dad Swag
He’s not a regular dad. He’s a cool dad. Get him some new gym swag that reflects that, like this white gym flag: "99 Problems, But a Bench Ain't One." Or if your dude isn’t the best at keeping his whites white, this flag comes in a more forgiving black option. No judgment here.
3. Unlimited Massages
Don’t get Dad a massage for Father’s Day. Get him unlimited massages, whenever and wherever he wants them. The Rapidstrike Massage Gun features intuitive speed control that automatically adjusts based on how much pressure you apply. It comes with four massage heads that each hit differently. Plus, the gun only weighs 2.3lbs and is compact enough to bring anywhere in its own carrying case.
4. More Kettlebell
Know what Dad needs? More kettlebell. Always more kettlebell. An Adjustable Kettlebell packs five weights in one compact frame, so Dad can get his gains without taking up valuable garage real estate. It’s quick and easy to adjust the weight – the fastest and most convenient adjustment on the market. Choose between three different sized kettlebells, depending on how jacked your dad is. (We know; your dad can beat up our dad...)
5. A Plyo Box (and more)
Dads love multi-purpose gear. Good bang for the buck. The Adjustable Plyo Box is three plyometric boxes in one. It takes just 30 seconds to switch the height between 16”, 20”, or 24”. After stepping and jumping galore, Dad could add one more use, too: This sleek, steel box would make a nifty end table for a cold one when sitting on the patio recovering and gazing at the lawn. And by cold one, we obviously mean cold glass of protein powder. A brotein shake. Fit dads, raise up your glasses!
