Give me all of your Christmas Workouts!
This time of year is my favourite for giving exercises silly holiday season names and coming up with elaborate workouts that in some way relate back to Christmas.
Christmas time doesn’t have to be about just buying people stuff or scoring some sweat deals at the stock take sales. It can be a time to reflect on your year, the people that were in it and to have a bit of fun.
Here are the awesome Christmas workouts we put up last year.
- Functional Fitness Frenzy
- Melting Frosty
- Around The World Christmas Bootcamp
- Presents Under The Tree
- 12 Days Of Christmas Workout

Now on to today’s workout.
This workout looks like it has a lot of set up, but it’s really quite simple. I’ve just been very thorough with my description.
Type: Crosstraining, Cardio
Time: 45 minutes
Get clients into groups of 4 around the same fitness level. Assign each team as level 1, 2 or 3. Level 1 being for beginners and level 3 for advanced.
Teams will aim to complete as many of the Fantastic Five as possible. For each completed FF they get 1 point. They must complete each station at least once, but then may complete any of their choosing.
Before attempting a Fantastic Five drill teams must first complete the Thankful Three.
Teams complete this trio of exercises together each time before attempting a Fantastic Five.
- 10x Push Ups
- 10x Simultaneous Partner Band Rows – both row at the same
- 10x Forward Lunges (10 each leg)
Teams do the version appropriate to their assigned fitness level.
|Drill||Level 1||Level 2||Level 3|
|1||The Snake||Green Cone||Yellow Cone||Red Cone|
|2||The Bear||Green Cone||Yellow Cone||Red Cone|
|3||The Little Balls||1 round||1.5 rounds||2 rounds|
|4||The Big Balls||3 runs each||4 runs each||5 runs each|
|5||The Mountain||3 rounds||4 rounds||5 rounds|
A windy path down a hill that takes around 90 seconds from top to bottom and back to top. Adjust for a hill you have access to. Set a red cone at the bottom, a yellow cone 3 quarters down and a green cone half way.
Bear crawl out and back. Set up a green cone 15m away and a red and a yellow cone at 20m. Level 3 do forwards bear crawl out and reverse bear crawl back.
The Little Balls:
Tennis ball suicides. Clients take it in turns grabbing one tennis ball at a time. Once all balls are brought in client take it in turns taking balls back out. This equals 1 round.
The Big Balls:
Medball suicides. A partner suicide run (tag out after each run) with a medball burpee at each cone on the turn around. Run with medball overhead. (from Bootcamp Workout Ideas)
A circuit completed the required number of rounds.
- 20x mountain climbers each leg
- 10x high knees each leg
- 5x jet stars
