Celebrate the 12 Days of “Fitmas”

Merry Fitmas, y’all! You all know how the song goes: “On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me …” and so on. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a partridge in a pear tree, nor would I like to receive two turtle doves this year.

However, as my gift, I would love to help you get started now on your fitness and wellness goals. Why wait until January? Let’s end the old year right and ring in the new one on a positive note, feeling strong and accomplished. That means substituting the lyrics we all know and love for the 12 Days of Fitmas, which we can all appreciate.


  1. One-minute plank
  2. Jumping elves
  3. Plank pikes
  4. Squat jumps
  5. Burpees
  6. Reverse lunges
  7. Slow sumo squats
  8. Sit-ups
  9. Present presses
  10. Tricep push-ups
  11. Side-lunge knee lifts
  12. Mountain climbers

Use the number of exercises listed as the amount you do. For example, one one-minute plank, two jumping elves, three plank pikes and so on.

Remember, ’tis the season to be jolly — and fit! I wish you and your loved ones a happy, healthy holiday season!
