December is typically a challenging month to stay focused on fitness and nutrition goals. The holidays generally bring an abundance of delicious food, copious amounts of alcohol, and a decrease in regular exercise with the colder winter temperatures. Inevitably, we feel guilty and set similar goals each January to be more active and to lose weight.
Why wait until January? Let’s join together in a 31-day movement challenge over the entire month of December. On this site and our Instagram page (@dfdwellness), you will find a daily workout as well as a health and fitness tip. Daily workouts will include modifications to ensure all members can participate no matter your current fitness level. Each workout will encourage 30 minutes of activity, every day in the month of December. This is right around 2% of your day.
Movement comes in all forms and all types are important to overall health. As your new Wellness Coordinator, I encourage you to practice a wide range of movement modalities including high intensity interval training (HIIT), endurance training, strength training, low aerobic recovery and yoga. Please visit this site or our Instagram page (@dfdwellness) for details. The goal is to move everyday in some capacity and to hold ourselves and each other accountable going into 2021.
