Gingerbread Cookie Arms & Core

During our final week of fitness classes for 2015, we spiced things up with Christmas themed workouts along to Christmas tunes! We sweat, smiled, laughed, and hugged as we wished each other all the best during the holiday season. 

I promised these lovely ladies that I would post one new workout per week during our Christmas break to keep them motivated to move their bodies and continue to incorporate the healthy habits they have developed over the past weeks! 

All you need for this Gingerbread Cookie Arms & Core workout is your exercise mat and an interval timer! I love the Seconds Pro app and share all my interval workouts with my clients this way. The prenatal modifications are in this colour!
