Join Our Healthy for the Holidays Fitness Plan

Good news! You can meet all of your commitments from now until New Year’s and still squeeze in your workouts. In fact, working out might help you survive the holiday season. Best of all, we’re here to help!

Instead of tossing your healthy lifestyle aside, we’re challenging you to join us for our Healthy for the Holidays plan, designed to help you maintain your healthy habits (without deprivation or going to extremes!) for the next four weeks. You. Can. Do. This.

Here’s how it works: Simply follow our recommended weekly workout rotation below. Each suggested daily workout is 20 minutes or less — making it easy to fit in fitness, even with a hectic schedule. You can follow along with our workout videos or do your own workout, so long as you get your daily dose! Here’s a preview…

The Healthy for the Holidays Weekly Workout Plan

Repeat the schedule below for the next four weeks (and add your own workouts whenever you like). Remember to check in with us daily on the blog or on social media, so we can cheer you on. Tag @MyFitnessPal, and use the hashtag #MyFitnessPal.

Feel free to start Day 1 on Sunday or Monday, whatever day works best for your weekly routine:

Day 1:  Indoor Cardio Workout

Day 2: Total Body Training

Day 3: A.B.S. (Abs, Back + Stability)

Day 4: Interval Training

Day 5: Stretch + Relax

Day 6: Wild Card Workout (optional)

Try something new! Join a friend for a new fitness class, ski with your partner, speed walk in the mall. Think outside of the box, and challenge your body with something different.

Day 7: Active Rest Day

Enjoy a day off but stay active by walking, cleaning, dancing, playing with the kids — and remember: Holiday shopping counts!

Tell us you’re in!

Leave us a comment below and let us know that you’ll be joining in on this series. You can also check in on social media using the hashtag #MyFitnessPal (also tag @MyFitnessPal). We’re here to support each other and be accountable. Don’t be shy, we’re all in this together!
