The 12 Moves of Christmas

How is your week going? I hope that you are taking some time to relax and enjoy the calmness among the hustle and take in the beauty of the snow! 

Our second at-home workout of this lovely Christmas break is a little more intense in that you must (and you will!) push through as many repetitions as possible in one minute, with little to no break in between exercises. You will rest once all 12 exercises are complete before you repeat! Make sure that you complete the warm-up and the core! Yes, you recognize the exercises (and fun names!) from the Gingerbread Cookie Arms & Core, but I guarantee it will be a completely different experience than Tabata style!

This is a great full body workout that requires no equipment (prenatal version requires either dumbbells or other weighted object) so you can do this workout anywhere this holiday season! Prenatal modifications are in this colour!

Ready?? Let's do this!! Once again, if you use Seconds Pro and want me to send you this workout to plug directly into your app, just send me an email at and I would be happy to do that for you!
