Rocking around the Christmas tree is great for the mind, body and soul, however, it’s not quite enough to fully counteract the traditional December slump in health and physical condition is it?

But if you’re reading this, then we’re assuming you have made a decision to be a little bit more mindful with regards your physical condition in the month of indulgence, so here are our top tips…

Festive Fitness Hacks by Clinic 33

1. Make a schedule

Get your diary out and identify those days that you do have time to workout.

Top tip: Book your gym dates or classes with a friend to keep you motivated.

2. Use a tracker

Try using a step monitoring app or fitness watch, and set daily movement targets!

3. Make Exchanges

Exchanges are not just for unwanted gifts.

Could you walk to the shops instead of drive? Or stand for all festive phone calls?

4. Double Up

If you can workout, consider doing circuits which combine both cardio and weights while you are short on time.

5. Home Gym

Don’t want to go outside? Try running up and down the stairs 10 times once a day to kick start those endorphins!

Did you know?

“Three 20-second sprints provide the same improvement to your respiratory system as 50 minutes of low-intensity exercise. Even with a warm-up and cool-down that’s no more than a 10-minute sesh. Do three sprint sessions a week to keep things active in December and once party season is over, you’ll be ready to hit it hard again in the New Year.” Women’s Health, Exercising at Christmas
