Sochi 2014 Winter Games Workout: Get Fit While Watching the Winter Olympics [CC’s ShapeU]


If you think I’m hopping on the Sochi bandwagon, well, you’re right. But then again, so is the rest of the world (I mean, have you searched Sochi on Google lately?). So while everyone is still buzzing about the Winter Olympics, why not make it count towards your workout? Tune in to the Olympic Games and get your sweat on while you watch.

Last week, we got fitness tips straight from the female Olympians of Sochi 2014. And now that you have the motivation to train like a female Olympic athlete, put it to the test with this fun and easy Sochi 2014 Winter Games Workout!

Think of it as one of those drinking games, with rules and challenges, except it doesn’t involve alcohol and is actually good for you! Plus, you won’t get drunk, fall asleep, and miss the event you were waiting around to watch for the past four years – or, like, 12 years if you were waiting for the Jamaican Bobsled Team to qualify for a spot at the games. Anyway, this workout can be done anywhere, and is an interactive way to watch the games! Get friends involved, and challenge each other: since the workout breaks each exercise up to follow the flow of the games, you can exercise without even realizing you’re doing any work.

Here’s the workout!

Sochi 2014 Winter Games Workout

Do crunches while watching your favorite athlete, – or maybe just one you think should win the gold medal for hotness. Watch skiing while doing a wall sit, and listen for the word “Olympics” while you check out other events.  You will even stay active while you wait for a commercial break. The workout is also free of any time limit, so you can really tailor it to fit your schedule.

Workout while you stay up-to-date with the Winter Olympics! Challenge your friends, watch your favorite athletes and events, and stay fit while you do it! Stay on the Sochi train and make it worth while for your daily workout routine! Channel your inner Olympian and make it happen! They did.

I spend way too much time on my hair, drink seltzer with every meal and eat pretty much anything made of chocolate. I love inspirational quotes and I'm a total cornball when it comes to my sense of humor. Contact me: @google+ @website
