How are we gonna stay fit this holiday season?! When the kids are home from school, the gifts still need wrapping, and the cookies are sitting ever so temptingly on the counter...
With reduced gym hours and what feels like not enough time in the day, it can be difficult to still squeeze in your workout. But don't get discouraged – there's still hope!
All you gotta do is make getting your sweat on a part of the Christmas cheer!
Introducing... the Christmas Movie Workout! :D
Just throw on your favorite Christmas classic (you're gonna be watching 'em anyway!), and lace up your sneakers.
