Bring Home The Gold: Winter Games Workout

The Winter Games are in full swing! I don’t know about you, but the games motivate the heck out of me. I love the extreme snowboarding, the grace of figure skating, and, for some reason, curling hypnotizes me.

These sports require an incredible amount of leg and core strength. These athletes train hard and train often. This is a fun Winter Games Workout in honor of their dedication. It consists of leg, hip, and core movements, and cardio. At the end, you should feel motivated to kick tail and take names!

Bring Home the Gold: Winter Games Leg and Core Workout


Get your body warm with a five-minute bike ride to get the blood flowing.


Complete one minute of each exercise with a 10-second break to switch between exercises.

Rest one minute
REPEAT 2-3 times


If you’re up to it, try doing three rounds instead of two! And always remember to cool down with some walking or stretching for five minutes after. Enjoy!

Cool down
