Amplify’s “12 Days of Fitness” Each day leading up to Christmas we will post a 1 minute exercise challenge on our Facebook Page, to be completed for fun either at the gym or at home. Post scores to comments on the daily Facebook post. Each challenge will be max reps in 1 minute. Great for a “cash out” post-wod, or else at the house or on your own time throughout the day. Also: mark your calendars for Amplify's 5th annual Post Holiday Party!
