With the New Year upon us, it is time to revisit those resolutions to get in shape and take better care of the body, mind, and spirit– and encourage your customers, employees and business partners in kind. To help those within your network achieve their wellness goals in the New Year while also increasing your company’s visibility, it’s wise to structure your upcoming branded merchandise campaigns around health, fitness, and beatify products.

Here we detail some of the top trends in health-related branded merchandise that’ll make the recipient feel good on the inside and out while concurrently achieving strategic promotional objectives:

  • Yoga mats are very popular as the practice has rapidly increased in popularity for its ability to trim and strengthen the body while calm the mind and alleviate stress. As a branded product that you can give your clients and staff, there is considerable room to advertise your company thanks to the various mat styles and print customization options now available. Even better is when you can supply your clients and employees with a yoga mat that can be rolled into a convenient carrying bag with a handle, which provides a second place to get your company mark and message noticed with an imprint.
  • Sports armbands for electronics have become more important as runners, walkers, and exercise enthusiasts rely on music or audio books to motivate them through their routine.  Your clients and staff will love this convenient accessory where they can safely store their iPod or MP3 player while they exercise, keeping it clear of harsh weather elements as well as ensuring it doesn’t drop or get damaged.
  • Fitness journals are being used more often to track progress, especially as more walkers and runners and weight lifters want to keep on top of what they have accomplished and set new goals to go farther or faster. Tracking your fitness accomplishments is certainly a great motivator to stay on track with those resolutions.
  • Calorie/Fat/Carb counter guides are also a good way to stay on top of health goals in the New Year. It’s become so popular that even restaurants in some states must now publish their calorie and nutrition information, which makes it easier to track this information and manage dietary intake as a key factor for losing weight.
  • Hand sanitizer continues to grow in popularity as more people seek to avoid germs in order to stay healthy. These branded merchandise bottles now come in all sizes, including those that go on a key chain or clip up to larger bottles for the desk or counter.
