Holiday Fitness Challenge

Holiday Fitness Challenge


In this week's challenge you must Exercise During the Holidays . It can seem impossible to eat healthy and exercise during the holiday season. Although most Americans gain only 1-2 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, some can gain 5-7 pounds [source: Science Daily]. Even if only a few pounds are added each year, they can have an impact on our short- and long-term health and wellbeing. One of the best ways to prevent holiday weight gain is to stay physically active this holiday season, and beyond, bring a healthy competitive spirit with a holiday fitness challenge. A popular fitness challenge for the holiday season revolves around weight management, maintaining existing weight, and ‘holding it for the holidays’ if you will. Increased physical activity is a great way to keep potential weight gain in check.
