We know that the role of dad can include playing a lot of different parts: Whether it’s working full-time, coaching youngsters in sports, staying on top of at-home duties, or any of the many other to-dos, dads take on a lot.

One of perhaps the most important things a father can do for us, however, is be a healthy role model. This Father’s Day, let dad know you recognize the positive example he’s setting by gifting something that supports a healthy way of life.

Healthy Additions for a Healthy Life

1. A nourishing meal or post-workout fuel. Treat dad to a favorite dish or a protein shake to recover after a tough sweat session — or a LifeCafe gift card and that can be used at any time.

2. Wearable technology. Help dad train more effectively — and up his style game — with the gift of a Garmin watch. We love the Fenix and Forerunner models: Both include a wrist-based heart monitor, sports apps, and other smart technology, with the Fenix offering added features for golfers and the Forerunner ones for runners and triathletes.

3. Made-to-move apparel. Send dad to his workouts in comfort and style. Made from soft, breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics, Life Time Apparel is sure to have a style for dad’s athleisure collection.

4. Supportive supplements. Stock dad up with protein powder for help meeting daily protein needs and support for fitness goals. To fill in additional nutrition gaps, dad may also appreciate the Men’s Daily Multivitamin, while the Strength Stack bundle of Pre-Workout and Amino Recovery is great for those looking to better fuel themselves pre- and post-workout.

5. Training time. Whether one-on-one, in a group, or virtually from home, find the perfect training option for dad to gain additional guidance, support, and accountability.

The Perfect Day Together — at Life Time or at Home 

6. Do dad’s favorite workout. Attend a studio class that’s right up dad’s alley: Build athletic power with Kettlebell Kombine, perfect weight-training form with Barbell Strength, or push your pace by jumping on the saddle for EDG cycle. If dad’s more of a fitness-floor fanatic, go through this resistance-machine workout, or challenge each other to do this HIIT Bike Workout. If you’ve got young kiddos, everyone in the family can join in on this Family Fitness Circuit.

7. Take over the grill. Show dad your grill skills by throwing on some steak and potatoes or cooking up one of these Better Burgers. (Find more ideas for mealtime with this Father’s Day cookout menu or these 11 healthy grill recipes.)

8. Recover, relax, and refuel. Amid all the go, go, go, allowing time and space for dad to rest and recover is important. Schedule a custom massage for hands-on healing: a massage therapist can help alleviate pain, tension, and stress; target sore muscles, and deliver a state of deep relaxation. The steam room and sauna are also great for relaxation and offer added health benefits.

9. Kick it at the Beach Club. Take advantage of the warm weather and spend the day lounging by the pool. Order food and drinks from the LifeCafe bistro and enjoy the sun from the comfort of your chair. Take a dip when you need to cool off, or hop in to perfect your swimming technique or for a pool workout if you’re feeling ambitious.

10. Book time on the court. Reserve a pickleball court or tennis court for a competitive — and fun! — workout, or engage in a friendly game of basketball during open gym hours.
