Get In The Festive Spirit With A 12 Days Of Christmas Workout!

Back To News

Fitting in your workouts during the lead up to Christmas is no easy feat. In between Christmas parties, hectic working hours and heading home for the holidays, a trip to the pub and a mince pie or two is far more tempting than trudging to the gym. So, to help you have the best of both worlds, these three workouts are relatively short in length and will help you get a quick sweat on whilst still getting in the festive spirit!

Just like the song the “12 Days of Christmas,” complete each exercise in ascending order, working back down to 1 and adding one exercise per round. So, it goes: Exercise 1, then Exercise 2 & Exercise 1, then 3, 2 & 1, then 4, 3, 2 & 1, etc. – all the way to 12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1... happy sweating!
