12 Days of Fitness Workout (open up!)

Are you ready for a mini-challenge to ramp up that energy and have some FUN!? 

It’s time for this year’s edition of the 12 Days of Fitmas Workout!

You already know that regular exercise will help you:

→ blow off some stress,

→ boost your immunity,

→ improve your sleep, and

→ lower your risk of a long list of chronic diseases.

This workout is proof that you can get all those benefits in a short amount of time.

This workout is done to the format of the song “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

That makes it a novelty – which means it’s a perfect time to get some kids or friends involved!

Here’s how it works: Every round, you add a new exercise, and you do that exercise for the number of reps it would be for the day it represents in the song.

So, for round 1, you would do 1 jumping jack. In round 2 you would do 2 burpees + 1 jumping jack. Round 3 would be 3 push-ups + 2 burpees + 1 jumping jack … all the way to round 12, where you would do the whole thing from day 12 through day 1.

You’ll feel so accomplished after you do this!
