A personal trainer will help you recover from Turkey Day.

Fat Chance 

A personal trainer will help you recover from Turkey Day.

Don't freak out if you wolfed down 7,000 calories' worth of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie yesterday. Most Americans ate more than they should have. But Jason Zell and his crew of Bally's fitness trainers come to the rescue today with free workout sessions at Feeling Fat Friday. "People [treat] Thanksgiving [like] an all-you-can-eat buffet," says Zell. "You can sample almost everything, but watch your portion size."

To help you shed those extra pounds, a personal trainer guides you through a one-hour workout that turns fat into muscle by beefing up strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. "How fun would it be if I threw a medicine ball in your hands, told you to curl it, and made you play catch with it while you did sit-ups?" asks Zell. "It makes the workout active and fun." Since the average American will gain as much as seven pounds between now and the start of 2007, Zell advises today's visitors to continue the regimen twice a week. "You're not going to make a New Year's resolution to lose weight," he says. "You're going to make it happen today." Call 800-348-6377 for locations.
Fri., Nov. 24, 6 a.m.-10 p.m.
