August has arrived, and with those summer sunsets dwindling and the chill of autumn entering the air, you realize that you and your significant other never got around to achieving that fitness routine you both set out to do at the start of summer. There were too many barbecues, beach days and cocktail-filled evenings out to really get into the groove of a workout regimen. Now that fall is around the corner, this is the perfect time for you and your man to revamp your exercise goals and get into shape with Gaiam yoga products.

Gaiam, pronounced “guy-um,” is a company committed to ergonomical and green products that will make you and your sweetie feel good about getting back into your sexiest shapes. They have a ton of amazing products from all things yoga and workout clothes to home goods and more! Plus, they have products specially made for men, so your honey will have no excuse to say that he won’t do yoga because it’s too girly.

Grab your guy and ease him into yoga by working out at home with some of the Gaiam DVDs and yoga mats. Once he is comfortable working up a sweat with you at home, progress to classes at your gym or even join a dedicated yoga studio. When the two of you head to class, bring your Gaiam yoga mat and block with you in one of their many classy yoga bags. You and your cutie will bond over the progress each of you make and connect over a new activity you both enjoy.

At, we love all of Gaiam’s innovative products, but we currently have an obsession with Gaiam’s Paisley Flower Yoga Mat and Flower of Life Yoga Block.
