12 Days of Christmas Workout

Sounds innocent enough, right?  HA!  Try this holiday inspired workout next time you need some motivation to put away a good hard effort.   

This morning we wrapped up the fall session of Sunrise Bootcamp with this 12 Days of Christmas Workout.  We used all body weight exercises but you could swap in exercises with free weights, bars, balls bands etc.  The sky is the limit, really.  Just be sure to include a few of your least favorite exercises to get your moneys worth, of course;)

Congrats to my ELM Sunrise Bootcamp recruits for finishing the fall session with a bang!  I hope our post workout celebration was worth every moment of pain:)

We have added 13 new classes to the ELM December Calendar- so be sure to join us for some fun and challenging fitness leading up to Christmas break!
