Happy almost Father's Day.
Look – I’ll just come right out and say it: if you really loved your pops, you’d buy him cool stuff.
I’m joking, of course. All your father truly needs is time, love and presence, just like any cherished human being, including you.
But it certainly is a head-nod to your father’s greatness to hook him up with a few cool tools that he can use to look more muscular and ripped in that ugly sweater your sibling bought him for Father's Day; drop a few pounds without him having to chew on pure cardboard cereal; sleep like a champ even if your mom still snores like a log; and fix up his “Here, hold my beer” injuries in no time flat using scientifically proven biohacking technologies that will make all aspects of your dad’s life better and his friends super jealous.
So based on all that, I’ve compiled a handy Father's Day gift guide below that has all the healthy and active lifestyle stuff your siblings probably don’t know about and probably won’t get your dad – from discounted, luxury ice baths to electrolytes and ketones that also work damn well in a margarita, or a surprisingly effective substitute for his favorite beer to a biofeedback-based stress monitoring device he can use the next time your mom gives him a weekend to-do list – I’ve got it all here, and more.
I've also included a range of items at different price points so you can find something that fits your budget and your pop’s preferences without sacrificing quality or emptying your wallet. And yes, I personally vet and try all this stuff, so I know it’s safe, it’s effective, and it’s not going to give your father a bout of explosive diarrhea (unless he doesn’t read the instructions properly).
And I couldn't wrap up a Father's Day post without honoring my own father, Gary Greenfield, the man who made me who I am today. He is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration and was gracious enough to join me on the podcast a while back to share his journey in entrepreneurship and expertise in nutrition and structured water. His wisdom has guided me throughout my life and I'm forever grateful for the example he has set for me and my sons. Listen here.
Alright, let’s do this.
My Featured Gift Picks for Father's Day
Red light therapy is one of my go-to tools for recovery and performance, but it’s not always practical to get in front of a big red light panel or into an infrared sauna. This is where Kineon Lab's MOVE+ Pro comes in. It gives you access to targeted red light therapy for your joints, anytime, anywhere. This bad boy combines powerful lasers and LEDs to reduce pain and inflammation, increase blood flow, and support the near-complete recovery of damaged blood vessels and cartilage in just 5-15 minutes.
I can easily travel with it and even strap it on my knees, elbows, etc. while podcasting or talking on the phone for instant joint support. It’s like a warm infrared hug for your joints!
P.S. In addition to treating any joint, especially pre- or post-workout, try hanging the light device around your neck because the lights then hit the blood on your carotid arteries and quickly activate ATP production by lighting up all the blood as it passes through. It’s even better if you take some methylene blue beforehand. ;)

The Morozko Ice Bath is the first ice bath for sale that can maintain freezing cold temperatures. Unlike a cold tub, a cold plunge, or a cold shower, Morozko ice baths make their own ice. Water filtration and ozonation ensure that you enjoy crystal-clear cold water, empowering you to practice daily deliberate cold exposure year round. Unlike a cold tub or a cold plunge, your Forge allows you to set the temperature for your practice of deliberate cold exposure to as cold as 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Ozone disinfection and microfiltration make the Filtered Forge a practically maintenance-free ice bath. Hands down, this is the best home ice bath I've found for a quick and convenient daily cold plunge at the lowest possible temperatures year round. Get ready for your dad to freeze his balls off. After all, nothing says “I love you” like shivering and shrinkage.
3. Bon Charge
As someone who is deeply concerned about the potential health risks of prolonged exposure to electromagnetic radiation, I am constantly on the lookout for effective solutions to help me reduce my exposure. That's why I was thrilled to discover BON CHARGE and their line of EMF protection products.
One product that has really stood out to me is their Radiation Free Air Tube Earphones. No one wants to be the forgetful dad looking for his car keys, so stem the tide by not frying your brain every time you put headphones in.
BonCharge also offers a range of other EMF protection products such as EMF blocking blankets, phone pouches and laptop mats. You might want to help your dad protect his other assets beyond his brain. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it.
So, if you're looking for a health-conscious present for your dad this Father's Day, be sure to check out BON CHARGE. You won't be disappointed! I’m already outfitting my entire house with their lightbulb system and it’s a gamechanger for circadian rhythmicity.
You may call your dad “old man” but he doesn’t have to feel like one!
Improving NAD levels is one of the best ways to slow down aging and even reverse markers of biological decay.
Help dad stay spry and youthful by gifting him one of the best NAD supporters on the market. But be careful, you might want to get yourself some too lest pops shows you up on the basketball court.
BioStack Labs created the only formula on the market which combines NAD3, Resveratrol, Spermidine, Niacinamide and BioPerine in ONE single formula.
It’s called NAD Regen, and as a father, this is how I maintain my own youthfulness so my sons will have their work cut out for em’ when it comes to competing with Dad!
This is the best, most bioavailable form of NAD I've ever discovered, bar none – besides hassling around with a messy NAD patch or an expensive NAD IV.
This is more than a NAD precursor…
NAD Regen addresses the root cause of NAD decline, fixing the “maintenance” problem so NAD production doesn't slow down so quickly.
Okay, okay, maybe the idea of pops running circles around you isn’t appealing, but surely you want him around as long as possible. NAD Regen is my recommendation for maximizing the quality and number of years you get to romp stomp and just plain love on your dear old dad.

“Uh oh, dad's dehydrated again.” Have you ever caught yourself thinking that? Probably not, but you should, even if dad chugs a milk jug of water a day.
Because healthy hydration isn’t just about water. It’s about water plus electrolytes.
It makes sense. You lose both water and sodium when you sweat. Both need to be replaced to prevent muscle cramps, headaches, and energy dips.
But most people only replace the water. Why? Because since the 1940s, you’ve been told to drink 8 glasses of water per day, thirsty or not.
Drinking beyond thirst is a bad idea. It dilutes blood electrolyte levels (especially sodium), which leads to headaches, low energy, cramps, confusion, or worse.
This low-sodium situation (called hyponatremia) is super common among athletes (and hard-working dads.) The solution obviously isn’t to stop drinking water, but to add electrolytes.
Enter stage left the drink mix: LMNT.
LMNT was developed by my friend Robb Wolf, biochemist and author of The Paleo Solution and Wired to Eat, as a solution for the rampant hyponatremia problem mentioned earlier. Unlike popular electrolyte drinks, LMNT contains no sugar or artificial junk, just electrolytes and great taste.
No, really, the stuff tastes incredible, and Father’s Day times perfectly with the restock of back-by-popular-demand flavor grapefruit salt. Last year it sold out fast, so don’t hesitate.
And if you grab a box of that grapefruit salt (or any other flavor) here, LMNT will throw in a free sampler of all their offerings. If it doesn’t exceed your expectations—they offer a no-questions-asked refund policy. You don’t even have to send it back!
KetoneAid’s Hard Ketones are a game-changing alcohol alternative. Let dad booze without boozing and help his health at the same time.
Ketohol is a brand name for R 1,3 Butanediol, a key component of the Ketone Ester molecule. Unlike traditional alcohol, Hard Ketones have no sugar, no carbs, and only 75 calories, all derived from the alcohol itself. Lightly sweetened with non-GMO Monk Fruit, Stevia, and some with only 2g Erythritol, these beverages offer a naturally delicious taste.
With Hard Ketones, your dad can unwind without compromising his health or well-being. Hard Ketones offer the benefits of 1,3 Butanediol, a molecule that NASA once considered for high-energy dense space food. However, unlike the synthetic and unpleasant-tasting version, KetoneAid's Ketohol is 100% bioavailable and tastes like a typical hard seltzer.
Give your dad the gift of a sophisticated and healthier alternative to traditional alcohol this Father's Day. With Hard Ketones, he can enjoy a beverage that won't kick him out of ketosis, suppresses appetite, and provides the energizing effects of ketones. Even if he's not following a keto diet, Hard Ketones will delight his taste buds and support his well-being. It's the perfect way to toast your dad's health and happiness on this special day.

7. X3 Bar
The X3 Bar is a groundbreaking fitness system that will revolutionize the way your dad approaches his workouts.

If the X3 system wasn’t beefy enough for you (or sits outside your price range), Kaatsu BFR Bands are an awesome tool in their own right that utilize the innovative concept of Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training, a technique that allows dad to achieve remarkable results with lighter weights and shorter workouts. By applying gentle pressure to the limbs during exercise, these bands restrict blood flow, leading to a cascade of physiological responses that enhance muscle growth and strength gains.
Not only do these bands optimize Dad's fitness routine, but they also prioritize safety. KAATSU BFR Bands are engineered with precision and feature a secure and comfortable fit. They are adjustable, ensuring a snug wrap around one's arms or legs without compromising their comfort or range of motion.

And if the KAATSU bands weren’t enough, I’ve got even more for your father. Perfect for the athletic dad, the limited-time-only Father's Day Pack offers the G-Vest+ (10lbs) and G-Short 2-in-1 (1lbs 8oz) for the price of $399 ($458 normally).
The G-Vest+ is an innovative weighted vest designed to elevate any workout with its evenly-dispersed MicroLoad—small weights throughout the vest that add intensity to any workout without restricting movement.
With the tap of an iPhone to the vest, you're taken to the OMORPHO training app, the only digital fitness solution specializing in wearable weight training. The G-Short 2-in-1 has an inner layer of targeted MicroLoad, with a sweat-wicking outer layer for optimal comfort. Wear the two together or separate to maximize results of your workouts in minimum time this Father's Day.
And yes, you can combine these tools with KAATSU and the X3 system, you know, in case you’ve ever wanted to turn dad into the real-life wolverine. Basically, I’m teaching you how to build super-dad. Maybe Mister Incredible is a more apt comparison.

Stress is the number-one killer, as they say, and any dad will tell you they have plenty of stress. HRV training is one of the best ways to reduce stress, and Hanu helps you build resilience through continuous HRV monitoring and biofeedback. It’s a non-stop stress radar and coach to help you understand when and how your body responds to stress and the particular situations that most impact your nervous system.
A key to longevity is being able to regulate your nervous system effectively. So when that vein in dad’s temple is bulging, Hanu will tell him to calm down for you (which works so well when you say it), and actually teach him how to do it.
Hanu users see appreciable changes in HRV over time using the device. Developed by psychophysiologists and used by professional athletes, Fortune 500 executives, and health and wellness celebrities, you can finally help dad chill out after his team loses the big game, he stubs his toe working in the yard, or when his favorite couple doesn’t end up together on mom’s rom-com he pretends not to like.
Whatever it is, help Dad de-stress with Hanu and use code BENFD30 to save 30% this Father's Day!
11. Cured Nutrition
Asking our bodies to show up for us day after day requires the most fundamental tool in our wellness toolbox: high-quality sleep. Deep sleep repairs muscles, tissues, and organs. With deeper sleep, the body can repair, recover, and grow.
That's where CURED Sleep Bundle comes in. A combination of two powerful recovery formulations: ZEN and CBN Night Caps.
Sleep is paramount. Seriously, it’s the body’s most sophisticated and important recovery process for both the mind and body. Don’t let Dad sabotage his gains or his stress with poor sleep. As a father myself, I can attest to the fact I lost plenty of sleep (well worth it I might add) raising my twin boys. I can further attest that any gift that helps with sleep is a gift well-loved by all fathers, and by extension, all parents.
And with the many hundreds, if not thousands, of tools, tactics, and supplements for improving sleep that I’ve tried, CURED comes as my bonafide recommendation for getting a better snooze.
From a survey of CURED users: 86% reported sleeping 7+ hours; 84% experienced deeper, more restful sleep; and 83% with a sleep tracker reported a significant positive change in their sleep scores.
Use code BEN for 20% off Cured's sleep bundle and all products.
