Holiday Sweat Challenge #HolidaySweat


As the weather gets colder this time of year, I find myself looking for something that will help to keep me inspired and motivated to stray on track with my health and fitness journey. It’s funny isn’t it, how someone who likes to inspire others to make lifestyle changes also needs a bit of motivation?

So for the next 8 weeks I will be participating in the #HolidaySweat Challenge.


What’s that? As a Sweat Pink Ambassador I am part of this cool community of like-minded health and fitness enthusiasts (many of us are professionals), who like to support each other on our individual journeys and to participate in all sorts of challenges to keep us on our toes and motivated. This usually includes social media challenges of all kinds with daily prompts.

As part of my challenge this week, I want to share with you the goal of how many minutes I plan to spend over the next 8 weeks I plan to get #sweaty and how I will accomplish my goal!

My goal for the #HolidaySweat Challenge is to reach or surpass my goal of 3540 minutes (that’s 59 hours!!).


Here’s how I know I can accomplish this goal:

  • I LOVE a challenge, it’s my competitive nature.
  • I teach 2-3 group strength classes a week.
  • Everyday, I commute to work by either running or walking.
  • As a mom, I am constantly chasing my daughter at the playground, park or street.
  • We go for family walks on the weekend to parks or to the market.
  • Finally, because of my fun little side business … I get to film demo videos of exercise which sometimes has me retaking the video several times (this counts right?)

Lets get #Sweaty!

I think one of the best ways to kick your fitness routine up a notch is by branching out and trying new programs that can be done from the comfort of your home (or if you travel — portable and easy to take with you).

Now that’s convenience!


Recently, I was given the opportunity to try the high quality programs of Grokker (and share a discount code with my followers and give away a 3 month premium membership! Keep reading). Grokker provides a wide variety of easy to follow at home work outs for all sorts of fitness types anything from Yoga to Strength to Barre. Amazing!





While I played around with many of their core programs, I loved their HIIT Arms Workout. My arms have always been my “problem” spot so this workout was perfect for me.  All you need is a set of dumbbells and a yoga mat (not required).
