Holiday Hustle Bootcamp Workout

Say IIIII if you’ve already eaten a crap ton of Christmas cookies this year. 

IIIIIIIII

I’ve been trying to keep the ones I eat to homemade and semi-healthy…like my Gluten-Free Almond Biscotti, but I’m going to be honest with you, I haven’t been doing too hot. We’re talking sugar cookies and homemade butter cream frosting. Oh and A LOT of sprinkles. 

I used to be really hard on myself during the holiday season and limit myself to only a few bites here and there of the “good stuff.” There’s no way you would find me eating more than one cookie in a single day…that would be a healthy living sin. I am so happy that my mindset has changed and I am finally able to enjoy the holiday season. Life is about balance and this goes for the holidays, too! 3 cookies in a sitting isn’t going to kill me and you know what? Tomorrow is a new day

One thing that I’ve tried to keep consistent this holiday season is my workouts. I find that if I keep most of the aspects of my life somewhat normal during this time of year, that it’s easier to jump back on the next day. Sooooo how do I do this? I schedule workout dates with my besties. Insert —> Linley and Lindsey. Lin and I have been going to Lindsey’s 7AM barre strong class that she teaches at Haute Barre every Wednesday morning and then then once a week, Linds works out with us at Switch. We all got to talking one day and decided we need to celebrate both the holidays and fitness, by hosting a Holiday Hustle Workout. To make it even more special, we decided 100% and more of the proceeds would go to sponsoring a family in need this holiday season.  

Guess how much we raised? More than $300! 

Do this Holiday Hustle Workout ad sweat it our over the holiday season! It's a circuit, bootcamp-style workout that mixes strength training and cardio.

We rented our favorite studio space in Minneapolis (actually the one we shoot all of our workouts at) and capped the class at 20 people. A great group of ladies showed up and it was an absolute blast. Best part? DRESSING UP IN HOLIDAY GEAR. Second best part? TEACHING AGAIN! While Lindsey wrote the workout, I got to co-taught it with her. Just going to her classes and being around her makes me miss teaching fitness classes so much! 

The workout we did was circuit/bootcamp style. It mixed strength and cardio…my favorites! Guess what? I get to share it with you today! We even filmed the cutest video for you to workout along side us. Your’re welcome.
