Ohhh, are you in for a treat today!
It’s one of the most anticipated emails of the year … because it’s got all of the details for this year’s 12 Days of Fitmas Workout!
This is a special holiday workout that will fire up your metabolism and help keep you on track with your goals.
Why create a special holiday workout? Well, first: because it’s FUN.
And even MORE importantly, keeping your activity level up over the holidays is critical. It will help you:
You can do this one solo … or with your kids, family, and friends.
This workout is a total body high-intensity (with lower-intensity options) workout done to the format of the holiday song The 12 Days of Christmas.
Here’s how it works:
There are 12 rounds … and every round, you add a new exercise that corresponds to the day it represents in the song.
So, for round 1, you would do 1 minute of marching in place (use those arms to help the the heart rate up!)
Round 2 you would do 2 push-ups + 1 minute of marching.
Round 3 would be 3 lunges (each side) + 2 push-ups + 1 minute of marching … all the way to round 12, where you would do the whole thing from day 12 through day 1.
Listen to your body and take breaks as needed!
12 Days of Fitmas Workout
