"Regular exercise is proven to help prevent weight gain. This is more important during the holidays than ever because research shows that the pounds you put on during this time of year tend to stay put—and that can really add up over the years!" Jeanine Detz, Shape's Fitness Director, said. "Gold’s Gym and’s "Trim the Fat" campaign make it easy to squeeze in a workout anywhere.”

This year’s “Trim the Fat” menu is below!


THE TURKEY WORKOUT - Get your chest and wings — ahem, shoulders — in shape.
