Christmas and Hanukkah are this week, so kick the holidays off by sticking to your workouts below. And no matter what holiday you do or do not celebrate, there is no denying that there is a mad rush of holiday treats to indulge in! But guess what? Holiday desserts do not have to be as unhealthy in order to taste good, and they certainly should not leave you feeling “heavy” or guilty. Therefore, to help you celebrate the season, we put together a holiday guide that we are making available for purchase for just $5! See what is included and get your guide here.
Now, in addition to enjoying cookies and treats, we still want you to stay on track with your workouts this week. We also want you to challenge yourself to meditate and/or practice yoga for just 5 minutes (you can do more) every day this week! This will help you to enjoy and soak up what the season has to offer, rather than feeling stressed or hurried.
Now on to your Weekly Burn Workout Schedule:
Arms, Core, & Fairburn Mile Challenge
Happy Monday! Get in the new Arms & Abs workout below and then complete your Fairburn Mile Challenge (see details here).
Challenge: Remember to complete at least 5 minutes of yoga or meditation today, and every day this week! It’s okay if you do not think you are a “good meditator” or flexible. Use our meditation tips and guide here, choose a yoga routine here or just stretch for several minutes.
Cardio, Yoga, & Fairburn Mile Challenge
Go for a 25-30 minute run, and run at intervals. For example, jog for a couple of minutes, and then run harder and faster for a minute. Keep alternating for 25-30 minutes. You can count this towards your mile challenge, or go for a lunchtime walk. This evening, head out to a yoga class or complete the gentle flow below:
