A Wicked Halloween Workout

Get in the ghostly spirit with this spooky-fun workout.

The time of year is finally here where we can embrace the ghosts, goblins and creatures that haunt us in the night. While some people are perfectly fine with the spookiness of Halloween, the thought of too much candy and chocolate treats can cause quite a scare. Be prepared to step up your workout game this year so you can work off the extra goodies and have a little fun in the process. This Halloween-themed workout was developed with both in mind.

The circuit nature of this routine is designed to build strength, increase heart rate and burn off the extra candy calories.

Halloween is a fun time to dress up and scare friends and family, but as the seasons change, it’s also a great time to recommit to your fitness goals. Halloween is just the start of the temptations that will haunt us from October through December’s holiday season. By building a routine that supports your commitment to health and fitness, you will be better prepared to handle all that the upcoming holidays bring to you!
