Driving cars on track is a sport and professional race car drivers train as hard as any other athlete. That might be all the motivation a dad needs to get more serious about their fitness goals. For me, finding motivation is the key, and technology helps daily. Here are some devices that keep me on track — and they’ll also make great Father’s Day gifts.

I started wearing a smartwatch after a minor health scare and my doctor gave me the “You want to see your kid graduate?” motivational speech. I chose iOS, currently an Apple Watch Ultra 2. Mostly for the convenience of it syncing with all the other stuff I have from Apple. If I decided to ditch iOS devices, a Garmin would be my first choice. It makes a great smart watch for tracking not just workouts, but health in general. For Father’s Day, dads who are already fitness enthusiasts and those that are still trying to find their motivation, would love something like a fenix watch that will track all their activities and keep track of the ole ticker. The smart watches range from $190 – $1,200 depending the amounts of bells and whistles you want.

I’ve also included the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells for $399.98. This thing has been an integral part of my home gym for years now. Yes. I scoffed at them too at one point. But I am really happy with them in terms of convenience, storage and how you can change weight instantly. They’re $150 bucks off right now, which is pretty significant.

The other big part of my fitness plan is cycling. I’ve always felt like it went hand-in-hand with being a car enthusiast. Look how many pro racecar drivers are avid cyclists. If the dad you’re buying for is a cyclist, I’ve included both the Edge 540 Solar Cycling Computer for $399.99 and the Tacx FLUX S Smart Trainer for $499.99 for workouts indoors. Dads don’t always have time to get out on the road. There’s also the ultimate dad fitness equipment at the very bottom of the list.
