The holiday season is just around the corner! It’s not just the season of giving, but also the time for delightful dishes, flowing drinks, and mouthwatering desserts. To help you stay in shape, below are some gym workouts you can do:

Cardio, Cardio, Cardio

Technogym’s Run Now professional treadmill is the perfect cardio equipment for those who want to burn fast.

Technogym’s Run Now treadmill is a great way to boost your metabolism before the holiday season.

To offset the excess calories you’ll be consuming, you need to increase your metabolism. The best way to do that? Hit the treadmill!

A recent study revealed that a high-intensity running session enables the body to burn 37% more calories. To stay healthy over the holidays, run longer to keep your metabolism up, because there’s still that New Year’s Eve party!

Slow Weight Training

Technogym’s heavy duty free weights burn calories while increasing strength.

In contrast to the typical explosive and abrupt movements, the Slow Weight Training is controlled and focused.

If you like strength training during your workouts, you can practice the Slow Burn Method. In this workout, use free weights with slow, smooth, and controlled lifting, comparable to the traditional martial art of Tai Chi. Its benefits include improved cardiovascular health, increased bone density, and enhanced mood and cognitive functions. Slow Weight Training also increases the “good” cholesterol of the body, improves blood pressure, controls blood sugar, and accelerates metabolism.

Build Those Muscles

When you increase your muscle mass, you effectively increase your metabolism too because muscles require more calories to sustain, which is helpful if you want to keep your body toned over the holidays. Some of the best exercises to build up muscles are squats, bench presses, and deadlifts. You can also use gym equipment like Technogym’s FLEXability to give your muscles a solid workout while also improving your flexibility.

Fitness on the Go

The Technogym Kettlebells is an effective way to work out your core muscles.

Go for portable strength training with the Technogym Kettlebells.

But what if you’re out of town for the holidays and don’t have access to a gym? In these instances, portable fitness equipment like the Technogym kettlebells are just what you need. Aside from the classic kettlebell swing, you can also perform squats, chest presses, and bicep curls with the help of this versatile fitness equipment.

Have a Game Plan


Schedule your workouts during the holiday season.

Of course, it doesn’t matter which workout you decide to follow if you don’t commit to it. Determine the minimum number of workouts you can do over the holidays and pencil those dates in your calendar. If possible, get a friend to serve as a workout buddy so you can keep each other motivated. It also helps to have a backup workout plan, such as using kettlebells if you truly can’t make it to the gym.

It’s certainly challenging to stay in shape during the holiday season, but with these fitness routines, you can still burn off those calories without depriving yourself. To know more about Technogym’s modern and well-designed training equipment, contact E-Sports today!
