Look & Feel Your Best This Festive Season

I love the holidays, but sometimes it can be challenging to keep fitness goals in check. Staying active during this season is the best way to keep off that “festive 15”. My mini is one to be up for any kind of outdoor play despite the weather and I’m usually the one to opt for an indoor sweat session instead. I’ve teamed up with Sport Chek to share some quick tips to help you look and feel your best this holiday season (all while staying on track with your fitness).
