8 Simple Home Workouts for Training at Christmas Time

The Christmas period can be one of the hardest parts of the year for training. Boxes and Gyms are closing for the holiday yet you still want to workout. If this sounds familiar, then here are 8 WODs you can do anywhere.

Home workouts are a fun and quick way to stay fit. Picture the scene, it’s the 24rd of December and your family is all gathered together in the house where you will all be spending Christmas. It’s 30 minutes until dinner is served, but you are craving your workout and already missing the Box.

You excuse yourself and find some space in the spare room / garage / garden etc, start pumping the music out and jump straight in! After completing the WOD, recording your time, showering and changing, you are already finished and feeling great, all in the same amount of time that it took everyone else to drink a glass of wine!


Chelsea is a great way to improve your pull-up, push-up and squat skills. It is one of those EMOMs that will challenge you to stay consistent throughout the full 30 minutes and really test your form under fatigue.

EMOM for 30 min:

  • 5 Pull-ups
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 15 Squats

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
