There’s nothing merrier than feeling your best. And that’s precisely why actress Janel Parrish is attached to her Fitbit fitness tracker, a gift that’s perfect for boosting wellness and promoting well-being. Both she and her husband, Chris Long, are converts.

“We got them around the wedding time,” the Pretty Little Liars star says. “I used it to help me get in wedding shape and keep count of my calorie intake. And I made it a goal every single day to make sure that I hit my 10,000 steps.”

Thanks to her Fitbit, Parrish actually looks forward to her workouts. So does her husband.

“He does have a high-pressure job—he’s an engineer and works long hours,” she explains. “So, pretty much every morning, he wakes up earlier than he needs to and he goes on a run to clear his head.”

“We ended up just falling in love with it,” Parrish says of the Fitbit.

Here’s why: The Fitbit Versa tracks your daily movements, giving you personalized insights and goal reminders to keep you on track. It reminds you to move and offers up personalized workouts right from your wrist. It even stores songs, so you can run while listening to your playlist of choice.

This year, Parrish’s sister, a lieutenant colonel in the Army, just might find her very own training buddy under the tree.

“She’s one of the fittest people I know. She actually got me more into the idea of being healthier, working out more, eating healthier and all those things,” says Parrish.

But for Parrish, exercise isn’t just all work and no play. She turned wearing the Fitbit into “a fun game and a fun lifestyle habit. So now I just wear it every single day. It really does help with keeping a healthy lifestyle.”
