09 Nov Tips to Succeed in the Pinnacle Fitness Club Maintain, Don’t Gain Challenge
It’s November at Pinnacle and you know what that means! It’s time for our annual Maintain, Don’t Gain campaign. We know that keeping a focus on healthy eating habits and an exercise routine can get really tough during these last two months of the year. The holiday parties, the gathering around food, and the extra to-dos leave little time for workouts and thoughtful nutrition planning. But you’re not alone!
What so many of our members love about Pinnacle Fitness Club is that it’s not just a place to come and check “workout” off your list; we’re truly a community, and as such, we’re in this together. We see each workout, those drops of sweat, and that “sore leg” swagger when you come in for more. We’re invested in making sure your hard earned progress isn’t damaged by the feasts and cocktails the holidays bring.
What is Maintain Don’t Gain?
Every year at Pinnacle Fitness we help you fight the battle of the holiday bulge with this campaign. It’s a free program for all members to make maintaining their current weight throughout the holidays fun. Not only do you have the Pinnacle Fitness Community supporting your effort to not gain weight during the holidays, you can also win some awesome prizes!
How Does it Work?
It couldn’t be easier. If you want to participate this year, you just have to sign in at the members services desk and get weighed in by one of our staff any time during the week before Thanksgiving. Don’t worry, it’s confidential. Then, just after the New Year you’ll weigh in again. If you didn’t gain weight over the holidays, you win!
Fast Facts About the Holidays
- The average American gains 1.3 pounds over the holidays, which doesn’t sound like much, but we statistically don’t ever lose that pound.
- The average American may consume more than 4,500 calories and a whopping 229 grams of fat during a typical holiday gathering.
- 50% percent of us will set New Year’s resolutions, but less than 10 percent of us will be successful in achieving our goals.
- Heading to the gym is the #1 best excuse to get out of the house when your in-laws are in town.
