Cardio Circuit- Fit For Christmas

Short and sweet today.   I am already two days behind my promised Fit For Christmas Series. 

Today is all about the circuits.  This morning in my TurboKick class we did a double round of the Turbo section which inspired the following Circuit.

Kill it, kids!

My trusty NikeAir Max get me through all my TurboKick workouts, but I can tell they are wearing out at a lot faster since I started teaching again 5 weeks ago. 

Oh darn, that means I have to go buy new shoes.   What girl hates that? 

My current shoes are the 2013 Air Max:

Have you SEEN the 2014 Air Max?  Come to mama!! 

Love Love Love! 

You can bet those babies are on my Santa List.  (I am pretty sure I will be Santa in this case).  I am loving 2 of the 3 new color schemes.  Decisions.  Decisions.

‘Fit For Christmas’ Kettlebell Circuit and a Turbo Kick Holiday Special

Today I am bringing a new twist to Transformation Tuesday.  Let’s transform ourselves and get Fit For Christmas! 

I will be posting a variety of workouts for you over the next several weeks.  Let’s first start with this one!  Grab a kettle-bell and get your sweat on!

Use an appropriate weight for each exercise.  Kettlebell not needed for Burpees.  That would just be a disaster, ya?  Follow the links for demonstrations.

Fit For Christmas- Kettlebell Circuit!

1. Swings

2. Squats– Hold kettlebel to chest while squatting.  Alter the depth of your squat according to ability

3. Rows– Make sure to do each side for a total of 80 (40 each side).

4. Windmills

5. Clean and Press

7. Bicep Curls

For my local peeps:

Turbo Kick Class Special!

My Turbo Kick classes are booming at the YMCA.  Super exciting!  I had the highest attendance yet during my morning class.  I joked with them that they were all feeling guilty from over indulging this Thanksgiving weekend. 😉

I am adding on two additional classes starting in January at the institution I work for.  If you live near Council Bluffs, IA and want to try out a Turbo Kick class, you have 6 options!

Holiday Special for the IWCC location is:  14 classes for only $20! 

You must sign up before December 18th to lock in the deal!  IWCC location only.  Register soon!  YMCA classes at the bottom of the flyer are FREE classes with your paid gym membership.  Sweet!
