A jolly Hello and a Merry Christmas to all!

I didn’t feel right to create a post today that didn’t have to do with Christmas.  So for the first time in Trainer’s Toolbox history there is no deeper lesson to be learned here or connection to fitness, just the best way I know how to help you enjoy this wonderful Christmas day.  I though long and hard about how I could contribute to your experience and celebration on this very special day and in the end I felt it best to share with you my all time favorite, never miss, full of awesomeness Christmas movies that no man, woman or child should be without during the holiday season.  Happy watching and I hope any one of these helps to brighten your Christmas Day and enjoy time with family and fiends.


Jingle All the Way – It’s Arnold, Sinbad and young Anakin Skywalker; can’t go wrong


How the Grinch Stole Christmas – With all due respect to Mr. Carey the animated version is hands down the way to go here


Elf – While watching this movie make sure to prepare a meal that has all 4 food groups represented; Candy, Candy Canes, Candy Corn & Syrup (it’s important to find good balance with your nutrition)


National Lampoons Christmas Vacation – “It’s not going in our front yard Russ, it’s going in our living room”


A Christmas Story – one year while watching, the DVD started skipping and I wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging somewhere over Lake Michigan.


It’s A Wonderful Life – There has been new scientific evidence that discovered if you don’t love this movie than you have no soul.  Actually, thinking about it is getting me a little choked up.  Excuse me, I think I have something in my eye.
