This month’s workout is meant for all of you ghouls and goblins who give in to the sugary temptation that comes with Halloween. It’s made up of two bags of tricks (full body exercise circuits) followed by a treat (active recovery), and while it’s not nearly as fun as stuffing your face with your kid’s tiny candy bars, you’ll be happy you did it in the days leading up to All Hallow’s Eve. For this workout, you’ll need either a Terra Core or BOSU Balance Trainer, a set of dumbbells, and a medicine ball. Superhero costume optional. Enjoy!

Circuit #1
