In addition to the celebration of Father’s Day, June marks Men’s Health Month.  Now is an excellent time to focus on helping the men in your life boost their health and vitality.  Here are some tips and gift ideas to keep your favorite guys healthy and have a fun and fit Father’s day.

Healthy Ways to Entertain Dad

Across the Greater Tampa Bay Area, there is no shortage of fun things to do with Dad or Grandpa.  If he enjoys fitness activities, consider joining him on a walk, jog, or bike ride along Bayshore Boulevard, South Tampa’s most iconic place to exercise. Stretching 4.5 miles, this waterfront road along Hillsborough Bay claims to be the world’s longest continuous sidewalk.   

Fortunately, our region also boasts The Pinellas Trail, perfect for cycling or strolling on a Sunday afternoon. It stretches from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs, including an enjoyable trek through the middle of Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Largo, Seminole, South Pasadena, and Gulfport.  This trail could put your Dad or Grandpa on the path to better health.

Techy but Healthy Father’s Day Gifts

Fulfill his love for technology with health-boosting gadgets, such as wearable fitness trackers, sports watches, and other technologies to monitor daily activities.  If he needs help cutting back on big meals, give him a Bluetooth-enabled smart fork.

In addition, you may consider a fancy back massager, shiatsu pillow massager, ergonomic chair, or other relaxation accessories to help him take it easy.  

Home-Inspired Ideas for Men’s Health

If your Dad or Grandpa is a homebody, consider helping him make his home healthier.  Perhaps offer a day to help turn his unused spare bedroom into a fitness room with exercise machines or a lifting bench.  

Also, take time to help him create a healthier kitchen.  Consider buying him a kitchen gadget, such as a juicer for Father’s Day. Then stock his fridge with fresh vegetables, juicy melons, and an array of healthy choices with easy-to-follow recipe books.  See the Weight Success Centers’ web pages for links to recipe and fitness books, such as The Major League Body Systems to help him healthfully lose weight and keep it off!

If he enjoys grilling, encourage him to try healthy grilling recipes. Recommend low-fat marinades instead of oils, fish instead of hot dogs, and healthy and delicious sides like eggplant or seasoned corn-on-the-cob.

As always, it is important to consult a doctor before starting any new diet regime or exercise routine. The physicians and experts at Weight Success Centers in Central Florida are ready to offer information about weight loss, skin care, hair restoration, hormone balance, and other men’s health solutions.
