Staying Active Made Easy this Holiday Season

'Tis the season for traveling to see extended family and loved ones for the holidays. Let’s face it at one point or another you are packing everyone in the car like sardines and going to grandma's house for the weekend for some holiday cheer. Which results in a long weekend away from the gym.

Good news though - CrossFit can be done anywhere with no equipment necessary! Let CrossFit Lōzen help you stay fit this holiday season even when traveling! So when you go back for that second cup of hot cocoa (and a handful of marshmallows if you’re like me) you can enjoy it just as much as the first!

Let’s get started with a few body weight workouts, no equipment required... GET AFTER IT! ONE:

3 Rounds for Time: 800 m Run 50 Air Squats TWO:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Burpees Sit-ups

THREE: 8 Rounds for Time: 10 Push-ups 10 Tuck-ups 10 Walking Lunges

There you have it... Now you have NO excuse not to stay active while traveling this holiday season! Always remember a five minute workout can be just as effective as a class WOD, it’s all about INTENSITY!

If you do any of the above workouts, add a comment and let us know what number workout you did and your score! CrossFit Lōzen wishes everyone safe travels this holiday season. We hope you get to enjoy some quality time with family and loved ones.... and burpees. Because we know how much everyone loves burpees ;) Remember, it's not about being better than someone else, it's about being better than you were the day before.
