Happy Thanksgiving! Here is a great “FRF” way to celebrate. This is a little workout that will burn some early morning (or afternoon) calories, ignite your metabolism, and make room for some good Thanksgiving food. I always like to do some morning workout or fun run with the family on the Holidays, I find that I feel better all day and don’t eat as much. Please give this a try!
Try to do as many circuits as possible in 15 or 20 minutes. Remember to perform an active warm-up before you begin. Do the suggested reps of each exercise then proceed to the next, rest as little as possible between exercises.
