Holiday season is here.

We know that we’ll enjoy the holiday season especially the foods that are served on our plates.  By this, we prepare this 8 head-to-toe workout that will move your muscles seriously.  This is based on Tracy Anderson Method,  “the moves are strategically placed in order to fatigue the muscles, allowing you to work each one deeply for overall strengthening, balance and proportion,” explains Tracy. “Building strength and allowing the body’s muscles to work together as one cohesive instrument will give lasting results and a lean and even-toned frame.” Try to do this at least 4 times a week, but for fuller effect, do this six days a week, following each strength session with 30 to 60 minutes of cardio, and you could lose up to 10 inches over your whole body in 10 days.
