I don’t know about you but I have been so busy this Holiday Season that I haven’t been able to stick to my normal workout routine as much as I’d like! I just barely got back from Paris which is the land of croissants and macarons so needless to say I put on a bit of what I like to call my ‘winter coat’, which is not ideal timing since I am heading to Hawaii in less than 10 days!
So, I decided to lace up my new adidas Ultra Boosts and kick it into high gear so I can get back into beach body shape before the trip! One of my all-time favorite (and fastest) ways to achieve a bootylicious beach bum is by running stairs, because it kills a whole flock of birds with one stone.
First off, running stairs combines the benefits of squats, lunges and a solid cardio session all into one low-impact fat burning session! Um, yes please! Secondly, no gym is required, so I can literally get a workout in regardless of where I am, so even the busiest girlboss can fit a workout in between holiday shopping and parties.
With a stair workout you can easily vary the degree of difficulty simply by walking vs. running, skipping a step or two, or adding in other exercises at the bottom or top of the stairs like push-ups, jump squats, sit-ups and mountain climbers just to name a few. Don’t be afraid to start, just start!

Don’t forget, you can also shop my favorite fitness essentials including these rad limited edition adidas Ultra Boosts from their collaboration with Stella McCartney. They are my faves because they are all-terrain, have a bit of a silver sparkle when I walk, and most importantly they are made of eco-conscious materials making them not only happy for my feet, but for the planet as well!
