Toning Tuesday

This holiday season, well EVERY holiday season really, we tend to pack on the lbs as the sweaters and oversized clothes come out to play. Although we are enjoying all the amazing food that the holidays bring, we should still strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle though, am I right?

Here is one of my go to exercises I created that only includes body weight moves, for those who do not have access to a gym. This workout takes just about an hour and you will definitely be feeling it the next day. Enjoy and get ready to feel the burn!
