The holidays mark one of the busiest times of the year; between Christmas shopping, wrapping up projects at work, holiday parties, and everything else that occurs throughout the week, it’s often hard to find the energy and motivation to even make it to the gym.
Better yet, the holidays also tend to mark a time where people tend to over indulge a little (or a lot). The combination of lack of activity and excess foods obviously brings weight gain and (you guessed it) a new year’s resolution to lose the weight.
This mindset, owaiting until the New Year, is totally backwards. Mistreating your body now is only going to make achieving your goals in a month that much harder! Research has shown time and time again that even small bouts of exercise, as little as 20 minutes a day, throughout the week can make way for great improvements in terms of your health – so why wait?
Today’s blog is what I’m (now) calling The Holiday Hustle – No, it’s not a dance and yes, I’m corny. You can complete the ENTIRE workout in less than 30 minutes, so there is no excuse for not being able to fit in a workout. By waking up 30 minutes earlier or by replacing the time you would normally spend on Facebook with exercise, you can easily fit a total-body, strength and cardio workout into your busy busy day. Here’s how…
