The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is to create a Fitmas challenge that makes you a babe…including your rear 😉

{MERRY FITMAS to the little FITMISS and FITMISTER}

A little under a year ago, I became an ambassador for an organic, all-natural birch tree water, Sealand Birk, which crossed my path with some pretty interesting, talented, inspiring, athletic babes, including one gem, Andrew Feld.

Find FELDY – @f_e_l_d_y

This past summer, Feldy, as he’s known by friends and the social media world {@f_e_l_d_y} wrote me a funny message on Instagram and has had me cracking up {with his semi-pro joke telling} ever since. As a D1 college athlete turned US Beach Professional Soccer player, Andrew knows a thing or two about health & fitness 😉 Diagnosed with Celiac Disease {finally after years of torture} in college, Feldy offers a wealth of knowledge on gluten intolerance and overall health and wellness, as he’s a nutritional sponge. He’ll quote 239487 movie lines, tell you 1293847 facts about leafy greens while making it rhyme, and always pick a fab red wine, because, obviously it’s good for your heart. His good vibes and positive energy are infectious, and I can’t thank you enough, Andrew, for pairing up with me for this holiday challenge!

Special thanks to Nathan Perry for spending the morning with us taking photos! Give him some Insta love – @SanDiegoPhotographer

 

*BE SURE TO CHECK @SEASHELLSANDSITUPS’ INSTAGRAM DAILY FOR MOVEMENT VIDEOS 🙂 We did our best to show one full version and one modified version of each daily workout move. Chose whichever version works for you and your body; with my back injury, I chose to model the modified reps, while Andrew did the real thanggg, weighted. 

 

Special thanks, again, to Andrew Feld for all your help being my model, and spending so much time helping me with this Fitmas project!
