What’s going on HEAT family? It’s Jenn here, coming to you this week with a Thanksgiving inspired W.O.W.!!!

This workout will be pretty intense and will leave you in a puddle of sweat. We are doing one of my favorite training techniques. Intervals!!!!! I mean lets face it guys, we need it this week. You, me, the kids, the family, everyone needs to do this workout this week.

Did you know that the average person will consume over 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day? How crazy is that? This kind of binge eating could potentially set you back over a week’s worth of training progress. Yes… One day could mean one week of make ups. 

So please …please…..please think before you ask for another slice of grandma Ruth's bourbon pecan pie, or Auntie Ni Ni’s sugar marshmallow gooey sweet potato mash, and the ever so popular, yet I personally cant understand it, green bean casserole. 

We as trainers want you to enjoy your day, and not feel like you have to eat boring or not have that slice of pie. Just keep it all in moderation. If you slip up and go overboard, don't sweat that either. Just jump back on the saddle Friday morning and hit it HARD. Heck, do this workout again, and maybe this time make the whole family do it.   

Wishing you and yours a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!!!!
