Get fit this Christmas with Laura Murphy

Together with Laura Murphy of Laura Murphy Fitness in Cork, we created a six-part video series to get you fit to fight with rolls of wrapping paper, hide presents and do the last minute Christmas Eve shop.

Follow these videos from the comfort of your own home and Laura will have you strong and fit in no time.

You may need weights or dumbbells for this quick workout but you can easily get the same value from using cans of baked beans or full bottles of water.

No aerobic step? Just take this routine to the stairs!

A chair and your favourite childhood toy is all you need to perfect this mix of cardio and resistance training.

Top tip: Stay hydrated, while working your body out, to energise and get the most from your moves.

Last one; don't give up now!
