Fitness & Motherhood

We are right in the middle of the holiday hustle and bustle; checking off Christmas lists, wrapping presents, baking, traveling and entertaining. At the bottom of your list you might find working out; how can you find time for this in the middle of the holidays? In between parties and cookie exchanges it is hard to make fitness a priority but if you have a few spare minutes you can!


We will all be enjoying some extra helpings at Christmas dinner, taste testing Santa's cookies and eating some New Year's Eve appetizers so a little exercise will do you good! Follow the exercises below for a ten minute workout, the Holiday Hustle! You can do this first thing in the morning or last thing at night, it's only ten minutes but you will feel great afterwards! We can all find ten minutes, right?

    Do each exercise for one minute each.

Jumping jacks

Mountain Climbers


Push Ups


Calf Raises

Tricep Dips

Wall Sit



If you want to finish up the month of December strong I have another workout for you; the 12 Days of Fitness!  This workout routine is just like the song, each day you add a new exercise! By Day 12 you will be performing exercises from Day 1-Day 12! This is another fast paced workout that can be done between wrapping presents and moving your Elf on the Shelf! At Fit4Mom Fredericksburg we are doing this workout as a contest, the winner will be receiving a great prize from our Vendor of the Month, Preschool Art Time. You can find more information here;



Have an amazing holiday season surrounded by your friends and family!
