DALLAS, Nov. 19 Americans who have just enjoyed theirannual Thanksgiving feast can now work off the extra calories for free allday, November 23, at Gold's Gym's locations across the United States.Participating Gold's Gyms are opening their doors to anyone seeking to burnoff that extra helping of mashed potatoes or stuffing.
Between snacks and meals on Thanksgiving Day, Americans typically eat morethan 3,000 calories, meaning it will take more than walking the malls on BlackFriday to work off the day's consumption (according to Gold's Gymnutritionists, a 150 pound person burns approximately 325 calories in 90minutes of shopping).
"This is a really fun way to get Americans thinking about their ownwellness on Thanksgiving Day weekend, typically a precursor to a winter slumpin people's fitness routines," said Dave Reiseman from Gold's GymInternational. "From cardio workouts and core training to yoga and Pilatesclasses, Gold's Gym looks forward to adding a dash of fitness to theThanksgiving Day weekend activities. We hope this gives people a chance tosweat out a little bit of that holiday indulging."
