I did this Christmas workout yesterday, and now I have a new favorite workout motivation song.

Okay, to be honest, the song is now hopelessly stuck in my head, and I can’t stop humming it this morning while drinking coffee and writing this blog.

I’ve always had a tradition of creating themed workouts for Holidays. Adding a little spice to your fitness is fun. It reminds me not to take myself too seriously and enjoy being active.

This year, I re-wrote my themed Christmas Workout so that you can stay active wherever you are – from home with minimal or no equipment.

I’ve included some modification options for bodyweight only (below). I also added a collage of demo videos for all the exercises.

But first, to get in the Christmas spirit, check out this quick 30-second hyper-lapse video of Coach Amanda and I crushing bells, singing silly songs, and getting our Holiday super spicy.

(Don’t say I didn’t warn you about it getting stuck in your head).
