Gifts for men can confound even the best present buyers. Many men are impossible to shop for, either because they have picky tastes, or because it seems like they already have it all. On top of that, many men are reticent to ask for what they want. Whatever the case, you might find yourself at a loss when trying to choose that special something. Thankfully, we've got you covered with a guide full of gifts for hard-to-buy-for men.

We're not saying that the man you're shopping for will love all of these, but the gift ideas span a wide range of tastes, so you should be able to find something among these options. On to the gifts!

Improve your cardio game with these HIIT treadmill workouts
Add these great cardio workouts to your usual gym routine
Man doing best HIIT workout on the treadmill

If you are a fan of running, then jogging along your favorite trail while you enjoy a beautiful spring or fall day may be one of your favorite things to do. While running outdoors has many physical and mental benefits, it may not always sound like the most enticing idea if you have to deal with winter weather or dark, cold mornings. This may be the optimal time to try some of the best HIIT treadmill workouts and exercise indoors!

Treadmill running can be boring and monotonous, with the minutes feeling like they stretch to an eternity. This is probably why some runners lovingly dub this useful piece of exercise equipment a “dreadmill.” Plodding along at a steady pace will mimic a glorious outdoor distance run, but it can make you long for the days of warmer weather and dry roads.
On the other hand, taking on a HIIT treadmill workout can not only boost your fitness and translate to faster race times and better running but also help the workout fly by. While HIIT treadmill workouts can certainly be challenging, they may just be the ticket you need to embrace treadmill running and boost your fitness. Not sure how to get started? Keep reading for our guide to the best HIIT treadmill workouts, and get ready to hit the speed-up arrow.
