Body by Bex – Christmas fitness

With Christmas & New Year celebrations just around the corner it’s the time of year people relax, over indulge and often slow down their fitness.

I love Christmas & all that goes with it. Coming from England a proper Christmas for me is, and always should be cold…. with hot Christmas lunch, lots of Christmas pudding, brandy cream & mulled wine.  Spent with family & friends, games, presents, movies, love & laughter and falling a sleep in front of the TV after my traditional Baileys on ice.

Since living in Oz Christmas has changed somewhat and rather than a wintery walk wrapped up warm on Boxing Day my fitness regime only relaxes just a little and I still like to train every other day.

So if like me you are keen to keep your fitness up, whilst enjoying the holidays then below are a few quick & easy sessions that can be done at home, your local park or with a friend!


30 Minute Cardio

2 minutes jumping jacks (star jumps)
2 minutes mountain climbers
2 minutes high knees

FITNESS FACT:   Even if you only train at home once in a blue moon get Santa to buy you a set of hand weights, skipping rope & a kettle bell! Always handy to have and will help you get motivate if you have them at home!

FOOD FACT: Best way to start the day is with a glass of hot water & lemon! It helps clear skins, helps with digestion,  balances PH and helps with weight loss!
