SAN RAMON, CALIF. - Nov 14, 2011
Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks and celebrate, but 24 Hour Fitness also knows that sticking with a regular fitness routine through the gauntlet of holiday feasts is no small task. To help keep Americans focused on their health and fitness goals, the leading health club industry pioneer announced today a new resource – the 24 Hour Fitness® Holiday Fitness Center, which provides people everywhere with access to simple tools and tips for staying healthy and active this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season.
- Holiday Fit Tips – Short and sweet videos featuring 24 Hour Fitness personal trainers that offer tips to stay festively fit. Share the videos with Facebook friends in need of fitness motivation directly from the Holiday Fitness Center.
- Treat Trade-Off – The Treat Trade-Off relieves feelings of guilt from overindulging on holiday fare by offering workout suggestions to burn off the calories from holiday treats, such as candied yams or a green bean casserole.
- Healthier Holiday Nibbles – A healthy holiday doesn’t mean a tasteless holiday. The Holiday Fitness Center features an assortment of healthier Thanksgiving and holiday recipes, along with nutritional information for each tasty dish.
- Holiday Workout Planner – Thanksgiving can put a dent in any workout schedule, so 24 Hour Fitness created a printable calendar to help keep up with an exercise routine and stay on track with fitness goals.
“At 24 Hour Fitness, we know that Thanksgiving festivities and seasonal foods can derail months of steadfast dedication to a fitness routine,” said Tony Wells, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, 24 Hour Fitness. “We hope that with our new virtual Holiday Fitness Center, our members and online visitors will have the resources, motivation and support they need to stay on track as they celebrate and give thanks this year.”
24 Hour Fitness offers more to be thankful for in addition to the Holiday Fitness Center. Throughout the months of November and December, members can take part in the Weekly Holiday “Giftaway” by working out two or more times a week at any 24 Hour Fitness® club to be entered in a weekly drawing.
