Deck the halls with boughs of parsley

falala la laaa lala la laaa.
Don we now our gym apparel

Roll your mat out and just work out
Fa lalala la laaa la laa la laaaaa!!

Okay forgive the lame attempt of a Fit parody of a classic Christmas Carol. I just had to.
The holiday season is here and that means there will be food, and cake, and turkey, chicken, all kinds of other roasts, sinful delights and with all these comes a massive weight gain that we will all soon regret and then pledge during new year that we will get rid of all the weight gain ans such. Well have no fear and new and simple challenge is here! Are you ready?
HAVE YOURSELF A FIT AND HEALTHY CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE!
A series of workouts that you will just do for 1 minute each with a 15 second rest in between exercises repeated 3 times. This will take you only about 15 minutes to complete.
Why is it not intense? Well we all know that during this holiday season, everyone will be busy preparing and going to events, parties and functions so we have this excuse that we don’t have time. Our goal this season is to be able to counter our eating by moving and staying active even for a short duration of the day. A little body pick me up. It is better to do a short workout than none at all. This challenge will be able to cater to your time restrained schedule. Just 15 (or a little bit more) minutes for 5 days a week for this month will really help you burn even a little bit of all those Christmas cakes that you will be having, plus this will give you a head start on your new year’s resolution. Right?
