Published by: SMDC.com | October 05, 2018

Everyone’s always excited for Christmas. Overall, with the presents, the time spent with family and friends, and the cozy feeling the season brings -- it’s a pretty awesome way to celebrate the gift of life. An important part of the Filipino Christmas traditions are the food! The Filipino Christmas is always filled with traditions that involve a lot of delicious delicacies like bibingka and puto bumbong, plus Noche Buena regulars like hamon, lechon and fruit salad.

Let’s face it the seasonal festivities come with a lot of calories. What usually happens is, Christmas becomes the season of “cheat days” and come the New Year, people’s resolutions become checklists of dietary restrictions.

This year, end the cycle and change your ways with a pre-holiday gym workout, so you can fully enjoy – with no guilt at all – everyone’s favorite time of the year.

Here are some Fit Tips you can try now to get your body in the right holiday shape:

   

Start Strong with Sprints

30-seconds can change your life! Start your month strong with some basic sprints. Get into sprinting with some simple intervals like this: Sprint for 30 seconds, jog for 90 seconds, and repeat! Feel and see the positive changes in your body in no time!

Push It with Pushups

If you want to be fit for the holidays, it’s time to start doing pushups every day. Not only do you strengthen your core and upper body, but it’s also proven to speed up your metabolic rate. Keep pushing and you’ll be ready for a guiltless Noche Buena!

     

Keep Calm and Cardio

With the range of cardio workouts that exist, you’re sure to find one that works best for you. Utilize your condo’s gym equipment by running for 30 minutes on a treadmill, or spinning on a stationary bike.

Beat the eats with Burpees

Burpees are known to be one of the most popular and expert-recommended full-body workouts out there.  So do your body right by doing 20 reps of this classic exercise in every gym session.
