It’s hard to believe we are at the end of another year, Christmas is tomorrow and the New Year Starts in a week. With the limited staffed hours over the holiday, we wanted to provide a couple of Holiday workouts of the week that you could do on your own. They are both meant to be challenging but have a fun holiday theme. The first is the 12 Bells of Christmas, it is a kettlebell workout from our Friends at Alloy Personal Training. The second is one that Nick and I came up with last year, we call it the Festivus Workout. This workout is loosely based off the fictitious holiday created by Mr. Costanza on the show Seinfeld.
