Competing With Dad, Even When You’re Miles Away
Posted on June 09 2017
We hope you’re aware that Father’s Day is only a few days away, sometimes in our busy lives things have a tendency to slip by. But if you’ve been anywhere near a television set lately, then you have probably seen all the ads starting to bombard the channels. From big box stores to deals and steals on infomercials, the specials just keep growing. Or are they indeed specials?
These ads are capitalizing on the premise that most of us just don’t know what to get our dads for Father’s Day. Well, let’s see if we can offer an idea that just might help in making up your mind on what to get dear old dad.
If you had access to a survey asked of say 1,000 dads across the US about what they really wanted for Father’s Day you may or may not be surprised to find that what most dads really want is to just have their kids be with them on this day and take part in doing something together. And this is great for making dad smile on this day, but what about the other 364 days out of the year. Well, here at PedometersUSA.com we may have the answer. Why not get dad, and yourself a way that you both can get a little physical with each other, even if you both now live miles apart.
We recommend having your dad agree to begin a new fitness regimen to help him get fit, or if he is already into fitness, then to get in even better shape. And the key to you both seeing your progress, and maybe enjoy a little friendly competition, is to get your dad and yourself a Fitbit Blaze Smart Fitness Watch This activity monitor is a state of the art monitor that will track your distance, monitor your performance, calories burned per your activity and keep track of your progress. The nice thing about this device is that it can sync to your smartphone, computer or Fitbit App which you can then share that info with each other. In this way, you both can see each other's progress and be a coach to each other to make sure each of you are hitting the goals you both agreed to try and achieve.
Now what better gift can you give your father then one that can keep him moving and motivated so that he is around for years to come. We just have one recommendation, please make sure that from time to time you make sure your father beats you in a weekly goal once in a while. After all, we’re sure he did the same with you when you were learning the backyard game of shooting hoops.
Happy Father’s Day to All the Father’s out there and we hope you all have a wonderful day!
