PowerBlocks add great versatility to a workout room

This is the first in a 10-part series on Christmas gift ideas to help people on your list get more fit. Featured today are PowerBlocks.

PowerBlocks offer a world of benefits for people looking to increase their strength and flexibility.
Adjustable PowerBlocks allow users to easily change the amount of weight they’re lifting and they take up just a fraction of the space of having an entire set of dumbbells.
PowerBlock also now makes KettleBlocks, to replace kettlebells.
