The holiday season is just around the corner, and for many of us that means plenty of food and family get-togethers. However, if you’re not careful it can also mean packing on a few unwanted pounds. But, follow these three steps to avoid the ‘gain’!

Step One: Stay Physically Active

“Holidays are about celebrating and spending time with loved ones — not a time to worry about indulging every once and awhile,” said Dan Rondeau, Snap Fitness owner in Lithia. “But it’s important that you stay active. It not only helps you be successful at burning off any extra holiday calories, it relieves holiday stress, too. That’s where we come in.”

Of course, the holiday season is also a great time to get a jump-start on those New Year’s fitness goals.

That’s why the Lithia Snap Fitness location is promoting a holiday membership special. 7 DAYS FREE. In addition, receive a free, customized nutrition program and supplement profile.

Located at 15276 FishHawk Blvd, Snap Fitness is a neighborhood gym that offers ‘round-the-clock access to state-of-the-art cardio and strength-training equipment.

Step Two: Fill Your Time

While it’s easy to talk about staying active Rondeau says it’s important to make plans ahead of time and stick to them.

“Time management is a healthy habit to maintain all year round, but even more so during the holidays,” said Rondeau.

Step 3: You Can Out-Exercise a Bad Diet

When it comes to keeping off unwanted pounds during the holidays, proper nutrition is key. That’s why the free customized nutrition program and supplement profile from Snap Fitness is such atremendous benefit.

“You can go to pretty much any fitness club and work out, but the reality is you can’t out-exercise a bad diet,” said Rondeau.
