Play the game!

There's only a few days left of 'normality' before the school holidays start and Christmas and New Year celebrations kick in big time - and you may be wondering how to keep on track with your workouts. Well, you have several options - including joining an online gym (for free at the moment!) and getting your family involved in fitness. And...you can play Bingo. Yes, that's right Christmas Bingo - with added oomph. Only you won't be needing a pen...

Create a Christmas decathlon!

How quickly can you get your wetsuit on?
Yay! It's December and we're officially allowed to be excited about Christmas! But as a parent, there's a lot to be done - from choosing and wrapping presents and writing and sending cards to being all ready for the school plays, carol services and parties.

This might mean you're skipping workouts at the same time as hitting the mince pies.

But rather than let everything take a seasonal slide, why not seek inspiration from the recent 'Decathlon Decathlon' event at Surrey Quays, and set yourself up a few little physical challenges at home? Best of all you can get the kids to join in (and tire them out...) when the school holidays hit.

One of the perks of being in the Julia Buckley #Fitnessrockstars Collective, is that I get to work with some great brands like Decathlon. In fact lots of the gym equipment Julia uses in her workouts can be bought at the sports store, so it's a natural fit if you've decided you prefer - or need - to work out at home on your own timescale (essential for busy parents, because, well, kids!).

So how about some ideas then?
