3 Ways You Can Fight Holiday Weight Gain! 

Weight Training

If you want to change the way your body looks you need to add weight training to your routine. Weight training will allow you to tone and shape your body like no other form of exercise. A properly designed program will increase your metabolism and help speed up fat loss.

Watch Your Calories

Focus on eating nutrient dense, high fiber foods that give your body the nutrients it needs and keeps you satisfied for hours. Be physically active and do not consume more calories that you are burning. 

Interval Training

 A properly designed interval workout will help maintain lean muscle mass and keep your metabolism elevated for hours after the workout has ended. When done right , interval training will take your fat loss and fitness to a new level.

Weekly Challenges

We’ve set up a few weekly challenges to help you get through this challenge.
