Holiday Jingle Series || Part 3 – CORE

Let’s put some muscle behind that holiday hustle and “crunch” away those holiday cookies.

Sure the holidays are hectic, but that’s normal in everyday life. We just have to find ways to manage stress, schedules, and stay moving to a magical beat so you can fa-fa-fa along!

“Hustle” is the ability for one to keep moving forward regardless of how many times they are taken off track. Solution: Do your best to create a plan that ultimately creates consistency so you can prioritize your time and mindset. This will set the tone to drive your determination moving to achieve what you desire!

The “Holiday Jingle Series” includes 5 festively fun workouts that are time efficient and effective to melt off calories.
