Four ses­sions to do any­where – par­ents’ box room in­cluded

There’s noth­ing like the fes­tive sea­son to put a big dent in your metic­u­lously planned fit­ness rou­tine. A di­ary as stuffed as a Christ­mas turkey (page 45 for more on that) isn’t ex­actly con­ducive to work­ing out. Added to that, chances are you’ll spend some of the hol­i­day sea­son miles away from your usual stu­dio, group class or gym floor. The so­lu­tion? Quick body-weight work­outs that al­low you to get a lot done in a short burst of time – be­cause, let’s face it, a De­cem­ber where you spend ev­ery day in the gym does not happy me­mories make. So, we tapped PT Nick Tum­minello to cre­ate a pack­able work­out plan that will stream­line your sweat ses­sions. First, you’ll get eight moves for strength­en­ing the body’s main mus­cle groups sans equip­ment – care­fully de­signed to be doable even in the tight­est of spa­ces. Then you’ll find four sim­ple ways to mix and match them to cre­ate the per­fect work­out, any time, any­where. Trust us, those mince pies will taste even sweeter af­ter­wards.
