Are those holiday cookies starting to catch up with you? Does your Santa suit fit a little too well? While the holidays are a time to rejoice and be merry, we’re not all super welcoming of the extra holiday pounds.
Thankfully, we were able to take a page from those 10 leaping lords and get in a holiday workout with fitness coach, Jordan Wheeler.
He’s stopped by the set today to show us how we can get in a holiday workout that won’t make you miss too much of the revelry while still keeping your health goals in mind.
