12 Days of FITMAS

It can be so challenging to keep your health and fitness a priority during the holidays. So to help keep you on track, I’m going to ask for you just 12 minutes per day over the 12 days prior to Christmas (The 12 Days of Fitmas!). Here is a simple, at-home workout that you can do anywhere, anytime and all it requires is 12 minutes. We can all commit to 12 minutes to keep our fitness in check, the typical holiday weight gain at bay and your spirits high during a typically stressful time of year.
