Healthy for the Holidays Fitness Plan: Abs, Back + Stability

Welcome to Day 3: Healthy for the Holidays!

Your Day 3 workout is a core strength session that doesn’t require any equipment (though you might want to use a mat or a towel for the floor work). This routine is easy to do in a small space in your hotel or at home and can be adapted for most fitness levels.

In our workout video below, we’ll perform exercises designed to help build balance, stability and functional core strength. I’ll show you options throughout the workout so you can make the moves work for you and adjust to your current fitness level as needed.

Prefer to do your own routine? Schedule 15–20 minutes of your favorite core-focused workout, and check in with us in the comments below or on social media once you are done.

Today’s Healthy for the Holidays Tip: Snack smart!

You can still enjoy yourself at that holiday gathering without going overboard by making the right choices. Choose healthier options whenever possible for your favorite treats (like these 12 holiday food swaps) to save calories without deprivation.

Let me help you fit in fitness 10 minutes at a time with my brand new “Walk On: 10 Minute Quick Walk Mix!” This at-home exercise program features cardio, strength and flexibility routines that work with even the busiest of schedules.
