These holidays, keep on track with these 10 other ways to workout when your favourite GuavaPass studios are closed.
10 ways to workout when studios are closed:
1. Online GuavaPass workout
Besides being full of hilarious videos, festive makeup tutorials and delicious 5-minute recipes for Christmas treats, we’re on youtube for another reason these holidays- workouts

If you’re in need of a stronger workout, check out our pilates and barre workout you can do in the comfort of your own home, like this one:
2. HIIT Workout Apps
Need a sweat, but don’t have a #GuavaSweat location? How about a trainer that sits on your phone and counts you into and out of a grueling, and high-energy HIIT segment? There are hundreds of HIIT workout apps you can find on the app store but these are our top 3 for a truly good app-sweat.
This ‘7-minute workout’ is a perfect way to bump up your metabolism and burn fat fast, whenever, wherever you want. The combination of cardio and bodyweight workouts, suitable for all levels of fitness, builds up a serious sweat, focusing on mobility, flexibility and strength. Double the workout or triple it for a longer more intense workout
Have your workout in mind but need a simple and basic timer? Seconds allows you to set-up a HIIT, circuit, rounds or custom timer depending on your needs. The timer sits on top your music, so put on your best workout music, pick your exercises, set your timer and get sweating!
Another app that gives you guided workouts is SWORKIT, offering everything from a 5-minute stretch to a 30-minute pilates workout, sitting on your phone ready when you are. So if your favourite barre studio or Bootcamp spot is closed this Christmas break, this app is perfect for you.
3.Pinterest Bum Workout
Pinterest is the best place to find homemade costume ideas, smoothie bowl inspiration and adorable scrapbook designs. But, it’s also one of the best places to find an at home pilates workout. This quick 15-minute bum workout seems easy but using your legs the next day will be a mission – exactly what we want! These workouts build those long lean leg muscles we’re after and a toned bum, just in time for the holidays! Lets put all those extra calories to good use.
4. Running Apps
There is a place that I can GUARANTEE will be open this Christmas, and you don’t have to worry about closing times either – it’s always open.
Running outdoors can often seem a bit daunting (check out our tips for running outdoors in a big city here) but there are a number of apps that make everything a lot simpler – and will make you run further and harder.
These are our top pics for best running apps:
5. At home full body workout
Grab yourself a pair of lightweights this Christmas and make yourself a gym of your very own at home! Pinterest houses a huge number of full body workouts both weighted and unweighted, giving you the access to body toning and fat burning workouts whenever you need. Get your #GuavaSweat on this Christmas at home with this workout:
6. At home ab workout
Keep that core tight over the Christmas holidays with these easy and do-anywhere ab workouts! No weights, no problem! Use your own strength to build your core muscles and see the results.
7. Daily challenges
If you’re finding it difficult finding a different every day, or if you’re a creature of habit, a daily challenge could be perfect for you. There are endless variations of daily challenges online – from cardio based, to squat based, to push-ups, sit-ups… there’s a burpee challenge you can try!
These daily challenges are usually done when you first wake up, making it part of your routine, even if your day is hectic. This is one is perfect for the month of December.
8. Outdoor Walks
If running outdoors isn’t your style per say, you can still get a great low-intensity workout in by walking your way through the Christmas holidays.
- Need to pick up something from the shops? Walk there!
- Need a break between meals/drinks? Take your family with you on a stroll through your neighborhood
- Too tired for a big workout? Wake up a little earlier and take your family pets for a walk – they’ll love it, and so will your body and mind.
Walking is a low intensity exercise, which means it burns a higher percentage of fat. True, walking for 10 minutes doesn’t burn much fat, but walk briskly at an incline for 4-8 hours a week and you’ll burn a significant amount of fat. – Source: TNation.com
9. Youtube Park Workout
If you’ve been stuck inside the whole day, but are still looking for that HIIT workout in the fresh outdoors, then grab your phone, find a space in a park and complete a workout like these!
This one can also be done in your backyard if needed!
There are endless benefits of working out outdoors, and if you’ve almost had enough family time for one day, this is the perfect option for you! Get outside and take some time for yourself.
10. Office workout
It’s bad enough if you’re stuck in the office during the holidays, but now some of your favourite GuavaPass studios aren’t even open over the Christmas break?! What are we going to do!
Here are 2 different workouts for your needs over the holidays if you’re stuck inside and glued to an office space.
