It’s that time of year, the time when we like to throw caution to the wind and forget about those workouts we’ve been doing so well with all year in the name of some sweet, sweet turkey and gravy. But it doesn’t have to be that way! I’ve rounded up the top 11 ways for you to healthily navigate through this food-centered holiday with workout classes, special events and some amazing deals you can take advantage of along the way. Cheers to feeling festive and fit!
