Christmas is a wonderful time of year, full of joyful friends and family. Unfortunately, it’s not a great time for our fitness goals. While it is important that we take a break from our routines every now and again, it’s also vital that we don’t completely let them go. Otherwise, all that hard work we put in throughout the year can get lost in the sedentary Christmas lifestyle. So if you’re home for Christmas and can’t get to the gym, here are some effective home workouts for you to try out.

Exercise Bands

Exercise bands are one of the most effective methods of building muscle without machines and weights. The principle is the same, but you can use them anywhere you like.


A supremely satisfying way to work out your core, as well as your balance and cardio, skipping won’t let you down.

Hula Hooping

Hula hooping is such a great workout for just about anyone. It improves balance, strengthens the core, and impresses your friends as well!

Bodyweight Exercises

Perhaps the best way to workout without machines, bodyweight exercises are the way nature intended us to work out. A combination of press-ups, sit-ups, planks, and chin-ups will have you just where you want to be.
