This time of year always sneaks up on me – just like that, it’s December and the holidays are upon us! It’s a busy month filled with holiday parties (and tempting treats!), travel, and vacation, all of which can throw a kink in your routine and make it easy to skip workouts. Use our December Pop-Up Challenge ideas to help your group stick to your activity goals and make it a healthy holiday season!
Egg Nog? No, Egg Jog!

From Christmas to New Year’s, take advantage of days off from work to hustle through the holidays! After you open your Christmas presents, head out for a 30-minute walk and enjoy the festive lights decorating your neighborhood. And don’t let your 2015 get off to a sluggish start – shake off your New Year’s Eve celebrations with a morning jog with Taylor Swift tunes in your headphones!
