Going home for the holidays usually involves a lot of couch potato behavior while eating Grandma’s cookies, and not a lot of physical activity. On the one hand, it feels rather freeing to be miles and miles away from a gym membership. On the other, you have a killer New Year’s Eve dress hanging in the closet, and you want to wear it well. Luckily, these days it’s incredibly easy for the gym to come to you. As long as your parents have a good Wi-Fi connection in their basement, you can tighten and tone from the comfort of your own home.
