The holidays are a hard time to stay on track with your fitness goals. There are family parties, work parties, friend parties, and church parties.

Social activities and traditions all take up time, and for many of us, when we are trying to find a way to squeeze these important holiday events into our busy schedules, our workouts are one of the first things to go.

To help inspire you to keep up with your workout during this holiday season, we have compiled some classic Christmas season workout songs to help keep you motivated. So, download these songs, lace up your fitness shoes and get going.

Key Takeaways

  • The holiday season can make it challenging to keep up with fitness goals due to busy social schedules and cold weather, but incorporating holiday-themed workout songs can help motivate and inspire individuals to continue working out.
  • The playlist offers a variety of genres and tempos, allowing individuals to choose songs that fit their preferred workout routines, such as cardio or lifting weights.
  • Comfortable footwear is essential for an effective workout, and the article recommends KURU walking shoes, which feature patented KURUSOLE technology for happy and healthy feet during the holiday season.

1. Father Christmas By The Kinks

The Kinks were part of the British invasion, and even though they look a little like their more famous counterparts, The Beatles, they are a little more punk rock. This song is perfect for the cardio routine of your choice.

2. Christmas Wrapping By The Waitresses

The Waitresses is an 80s punk band that you might remember from the song “I know what boys like.” This song is a workout hit and is especially perfect for lifting weights.

3. and 4. Angels We Have Heard On High And Handel’s Messiah By Relient K

Relient K is the only band with two songs on the list. These songs are perfect for a workout, especially for your sprints.

5. Run Rudolph Run By Ceelo Green

This song perfectly combines southern hip-hop and holiday spirit.
