Have a healthy holiday

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are a time for celebration with family and friends. They’re also the time of year when many people find themselves “falling off the wagon” when it comes to healthy habits.

Making the decision to continue working out (particularly in a controlled, safe training environment) is a very personal one.
