It’s time for this year’s edition of the 12 Days of Fitmas Workout! It’s a total body workout that’s in the format of “The 12 Days of Christmas” song.  It’s super fun to do with your kids, family, and friends … or even as a challenge for yourself.

Staying active during the holidays is SO IMPORTANT. It can help you:

  • Feel energized
  • Improve your sleep
  • Burn off some calories and
  • Even boost your immune system.

Here’s how “The 12 Days of Fitmas Challenge” works:

There are 12 rounds … and every round, you add a new exercise that corresponds to the day it represents in the song.

So, for round 1, you would do 1 burpee. In round 2, you would do 2 lunges (each side) + 1 burpee. Round 3 would be 3 push-ups + 2 lunges (each side) + 1 burpee… all the way to round 12, where you would do the whole thing from day 12 through day 1.

Here we go …

12 Days of Fitmas Workout
