Four exercises to burn those holiday meals

 I hope that you are enjoying time with your loved ones.  This time of the year it is easy to feel a bit slow and heavy with most of us eating more calories than we normally do over the holidays.  The focus of the exercise program below is burning stored calories. 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.  If you want an even more personalized program for your needs, consider in-home personal training.
