15 minute full body holiday workouts for the 50+ -1/6 - Cardio

15 minute full body holiday workouts for the 50+
Exercise Program 1 of 6- Cardio

With the holidays fast approaching life can start to feel busy as well as very social with holiday dinners and drinks.  A few Vintage Fitness personal training clients here in Toronto have asked me to create a series of 15 minute full body holiday workouts that they can do even on busy days.  This is the first of six workouts which will take you right until Christmas Day.

The key with designing a short full body workout is to incorporate strength training, cardio and flexibility. The focus of this 15 minute full body holiday workout is cardiovascular interval training one which means you do short bursts of activity followed by a recovery.  If you need modified exercises because of an injury or you haven’t exercised in a while drop me a note erin@vintagefitness.ca and I will send different exercises through.
