Gold’s Gym has not only acknowledged these facts, but they're helping you do something about it. This Friday, November 25th, 2011, Gold’s Gym is offering Americans the opportunity to take a step in the right direction by opening their doors all across the nation at participating gyms and allowing individuals to visit the gym free of charge—no strings attached. While at the gym, you will be able to test out the specially designed workouts that Gold’s has put together as a means helping you not only work off those calories from the day before, but to take a step in the right direction—away from inactivity and gluttony, and towards a healthy weight and active lifestyle.
Gold’s Gym and Shape.com have teamed up once again to provide you with 6 workouts designed by celebrity trainers that target every body part affected by your Thanksgiving meal, from your shoulders to your backside. They include the “Turkey Workout” which targets the chest and shoulders, the “Mashed Potatoes Workout” which keeps your backside from looking like mashed potatoes, targeting the glutes and upper legs, the “Cranberry Jelly Workout” which helps you lose your abdominal jelly by working your abs, the “Stuffing Workout” which helps tone your lower back and keep away extra “stuffing”, the “Green Bean Casserole Workout” which tones your arms through an intense workout, and the “Slice of Pumpkin Pie Workout” which is a total body workout that helps you get cut like a piece of pie.
