Gold's Gym To Let Americans Work Off Thanksgiving Calories For Free
Americans who have just enjoyed their annual Thanksgiving feast can now work off the extra calories for free all day, November 23, at Gold's Gym's locations across the United States. Participating Gold's Gyms are opening their doors to anyone seeking to burn off that extra helping of mashed potatoes or stuffing.
Between snacks and meals on Thanksgiving Day, Americans typically eat more than 3,000 calories, meaning it will take more than walking the malls on Black Friday to work off the day's consumption (according to Gold's Gym nutritionists, a 150 pound person burns approximately 325 calories in 90 minutes of shopping).
"This is a really fun way to get Americans thinking about their own wellness on Thanksgiving Day weekend, typically a precursor to a winter slump in people's fitness routines," said Dave Reiseman from Gold's Gym International. "From cardio workouts and core training to yoga and Pilates classes, Gold's Gym looks forward to adding a dash of fitness to the Thanksgiving Day weekend activities. We hope this gives people a chance to sweat out a little bit of that holiday indulging."
