With all of the eating and parties, it is hard to keep on track with your fitness goals during the holiday season. Here is a playlist that is sure to get you into the holiday spirit and the workout spirit at the same time.
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.
The food and the parties are only one part of the reasons that working out during the holidays is tricky. For many of us, this is the time of year when the weather gets cold. If you are used to jogging outside, the drop in temperature can make it hard to get the motivation to go out. Even if you like to work out at a gym, lacing up your gym shoes and getting all bundled up for the car ride can be a major pain. If you are bundling up a couple of children to leave at the gym’s daycare, it is even worse.
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.
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.
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.
