The holiday season is a time of joy, celebration, and indulgence. However, it can also be a time when your fitness routine takes a back seat to festivities and feasting. Don't let the holidays derail your health and wellness goals. We’ve compiled some valuable tips to help you stay active and maintain your health during the holiday season.
The key to successful holiday fitness is planning. Schedule your workouts in advance, just like you would a holiday party or family gathering. By setting specific times for your workouts, you are more likely to stick to your routine.
Shorter, Intense Workouts
During the busy holiday season, opt for shorter, high-intensity workouts like HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training). These workouts are efficient, effective, and can be completed in 20-30 minutes, leaving you with no excuses. Make sure to use a supportive Folding Exercise Mat from We Sell Mats to enhance your workout. Plus, it's easy to transport if you’re traveling this season.
Embrace Home Workouts
If you can't make it to the gym due to holiday commitments or weather conditions, consider home workouts. There are plenty of online fitness programs and apps that offer guided workouts you can do in the comfort of your home. We Sell Mats has what you need for your home gym including Foam Fitness Floor Mats and Folding Exercise Mats in a variety of sizes and colors.
Make It a Family Affair
Get your family involved in physical activities. Plan family walks, hikes, or even holiday-themed games like touch football or a snowball fight. It's a great way to combine quality time with staying active. Check out our other blog post: Discover Fun Family Fitness Routines for some ideas!
With all the festivities during the holidays, it's essential to stay hydrated. Ensure you drink enough water throughout the day, especially if you're consuming alcohol, to maintain your energy levels and support your metabolism.

By planning your workouts, making them efficient, and embracing exercise-focused family activities, you can enjoy the holidays while also prioritizing your well-being.
