Santa 150x150 A Workout Perfect for the Holidays

(OK, be honest, who cringed?)

Yes, in case you haven’t turned on the radio/TV/Internet browser or looked outside, ” ‘Tis the Season.”  This “Season” was once known as “The 12 days of Christmas.”  Today, however, I think we can say that the “Season” may also stand:

  • “The 12 weeks of Sales,”
  • “The 12 days of Cookies,”
  • “The 12 nights of Office Parties”
  • “The 12 days of Eating!”
  • “The 12 Hours of Traffic!”

Regardless of what your Holiday looks like, I’m betting it’s low on “water time.”

Do yourself a favor and get your body moving.  Stress can wreak havoc on anyone’s physical and psychological wellbeing – especially during this wonderful and pressure-filled time of the year.  I mean – that NYE Dress or Suit is less then two week away!

This 30-40 minute workout can be tailored to fit any time constraint.  Use it as a blueprint for an efficient and effective workout.  Can’t make it over 1000 yards yet?  No problem.  Do what you can and feel proud about the work you accomplish.
