This workout is pretty indicative of what I’ve had time for in my own schedule this week – it’s hard, it’s fast and it’s simple.

Enjoy.

The 12 Days of Christmas Workout

12DaysofChristmasWorkout_LGFChristmas is a most excellent time of year in the fitness industry. It gives personal trainers the world over a chance to theme their workouts and plan awesome sessions that involve chimney climbers, reindeer games and North pole lunges. It allows us to develop Christmas quizzes, punish you with burpees for incorrect answers and force to you hop around like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.
