The holidays are here, which means travels and parties that can disrupt your normal workouts. But even with all the chaos, there are still a number of ways to get your fitness in while on the go. Keep reading to find our top five tips for keeping your fitness in check during the holiday season.
Hit A Home Workout

Plan Ahead On Gym Locations
Scout out nearby gyms and boxes and call ahead to figure out their drop in policy. Once you’ve gotten the details squared away, it will make showing up for your workouts all that much easier.
Hit Those Early Morning Classes
With all those holiday parties going down in the evenings, it can be tempting to skip your nighttime workout to give yourself some extra time after work. Avoid skipping your workout altogether by showing up for the early morning classes. You’ll feel more energized during the day and you won’t have to worry about rushing from your 4:30pm workouts to your work’s annual holiday party.
Find Other Ways To Be Active
Even if you can’t find the time to drop in or hit a home workout, make the extra effort to find other ways to be active. Skip the elevator and take the stairs. Walk instead of Ubering or take a post-dinner walk. You’ll find that the little things will go a long way.
Don’t Beat Yourself Up Too Much
It’s a tough time to stay on track, but don’t beat yourself up too much if you miss a workout here or there. Take advantage of this time to spend time with friends and family and don’t worry too much about your fitness.
