3D LILA Annual Advent Fitness Challenge

Each Advent season, we do a fitness challenge. The Advent Fitness Challenge started two years ago with an idea. An idea that, while the holiday season is full of yummies and cocktails, we always seem to end up setting New Year’s resolutions to get fit and lose weight. As kids, we also have wonderful memories of opening each window of an advent calendar. We thought, why not start our fitness resolution little early and have some fun in the process.

The challenge begins on December 1st and goes through December 25th – also known as the Advent.

Each day you complete a circuit of:

  • Jumping Jacks
  • Sit-Ups
  • Push Ups
  • Burpees
  • 5-second Plank Holds

On Day 1, you just have to do one of each. Easy right! On day two you do two of each. On day three, you do three of each.

You see how the pattern continues. We keep incrementing up one until, on the 25th December, you’re doing 25 of each. Each page below outlines exactly what you need to do.

We also support each other on the journey on Facebook and Twitter. If you want to join us, like the page and comment. We’d love to see you there!
