Holidays can be great when you get to spend extra time with loved ones and have fun creating memories while enjoying unique holiday traditions. This can also be a time where people become distracted from their healthy workout routine due to holiday traveling and craziness. This blog will list a few different workout tips and guidance toward staying on track with a healthy workout routine during the holidays. 

A healthy daily workout routine includes core, total-body strength, flexibility, and coordination. This does not mean you need to dedicate 60 minutes per day 7 days out of the week, instead; practice balance and strength within your daily activities. A healthy and strong body is where you can perform your best physically in any condition. 

Trade your car for the bike more often and do some Christmas shopping downtown Boise to see beautiful lights with a view of the snow capped mountains. You can park your bike, grab a cup of hot-chocolate, enjoy the variety of boutiques and outdoor stores heated seating areas, and a beautiful great big Christmas tree.

Get your whole family involved with activities by keeping it simple like taking a stroll around the block or playing a fun day game of golf. Start your Christmas morning with a family oriented yoga session in the living room to practice balance and flexibility. Throw on your yoga pants and get stretching while setting a positive and healthy example for others. 

Happy, Healthy, and Active Holidays,
