The holidays make staying healthy a little challenging. You’ve got countless errands, tons of parties and events, and endless opportunities to cheat on your diet.
And those are good things! Part of enjoying the holidays involves gathering with friends and family, exchanging gifts, and sampling some delicious dishes and treats. Unfortunately, the thing we generally sacrifice during this time is overall healthy living. We put aside our workouts because we’re tired or there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day.
Enter celebrity trainer Mike Donavanik, who has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, Reader’s Digest, Town & Country, Fitness, and Self. He’s also the man behind Extreme Burn: Total Body Interval Training, a six-week, full body program on DVD that is super dynamic, jam-packed with compound strength moves and intense bursts of cardio that fire up the metabolism. It’s also highly accessible, so whether you’re a fitness pro or just starting out, you can challenge yourself at your own appropriate level.
Donavanik understands that people get frantic before the holidays so they off slack off, but a great short workout can help boost your energy, strengthen your immune system, and allow you to get more out of the season. In the amazing short video posted above, Mike shows you some simple exercises that can be done at your desk. So rather than submit to temptation and mindlessly eat another snack, or grab that third cup of coffee because you’re feeling exhausted, you can give yourself the great gift of a toned, healthier body. You may even end up feeling a lot better about yourself.
