The month of October has been an absolutely crazy one. Constantly on the go with work, finishing up school, getting the business running, band events, Thanksgiving, Halloween and so much more… it’s no surprise that most of us find it difficult during these busier times to motivate ourselves to keep up with our workout routines.
One thing I have learned through my physical fitness journey is to embrace the new, different and unique ways to fit fitness into my daily life. One great way is to use my ‘downtime,’ when I am watching my latest favourite Netflix show or movie, as ‘me time’ in a different way – time to work on my health by incorporating some sort of workout.
This may be something as simple as setting up the treadmill so that it is facing the television, staying on the move throughout the duration of an episode. Or, if I am looking for something a little more creative, I have discovered that there are a TON of fun, television show or movie based workouts available online to get you up and moving. One Tumblr account in particular, accurately named ‘TV Show & Movie Workouts,’ has a great collection of these workouts.
Of these, there is one that stood out as the PERFECT option for this time of year. I haven’t shared anything in awhile in relation to what I’m at fitness-wise, in fact, I think the last update was my list of fun pool workouts from the summer. So, let’s shift the focus to fall with one of the great traditional Halloween movies: Hocus Pocus!
Try this great Hocus Pocus themed workout to get you up and moving this Halloween season!
