This time of year is busy for everyone, from work deadlines to holiday parties. I’m finding my clients are really pushed for time, so getting the most ‘bang for your buck’ from their workouts is key right now.
Below is a tough but manageable conditioning circuit that is guaranteed to challenge your whole body, make you sweat, and burn some serious calories! I love that it combines some of my favorite booty building exercises with high intensity intervals and throws in some abs and arms for good measure!
The workout should only take 35- to 40 minutes at most, so it should be easy to fit into even the busiest of days…
Fellow BFX trainer Alex Grossmanides (my handsome model for today) and I completed this workout before our holiday party and we really felt we earned our (healthy) treats that day!
We took inspiration from a workout on www.theptdc.com, and then added our own spin to the exercises and format.

Complete a 5 minute warm up to get the blood flowing and prepare you for the workout.
Perform each exercise for 45 seconds, with 15 seconds to transition to the next exercise. Complete 3 rounds. Rest for 90-120 seconds between rounds. Smile!
