Whether we toiled away in the kitchen or drove miles for the privilege of sharing a feast with family and friends, we likely earned those calories ingested at the Thanksgiving table. But when the inevitable guilt sets it, it’s easy to overcompensate with a punishing workout just to quiet our inner critic. However, there is a smarter way to stay fit for the holidays. I asked the experts at MSCR to weigh in on the most effective workout, one that uses body weight and items you can find around the house, like a chair and a few feet of free wall space. All it takes is 7 minutes (but 14 or 21 is even better). Read all about it at madison.com. If you’re one of those exercisers who needs a group to stay motivated, sign up for Fit for the Holidays at MSCR to sample a variety of classes to offset holiday indulgences.
