No excuse not to exercise!

Every year Americans complain about the weight they put on over the holidays.
We know the holidays can be hectic with travel, family visits, holiday parties, end-of-year stress at work, and just chaos in general. And we know the cold weather makes you want to cuddle up in sweatpants and WHO REALLY CARES IF I PUT ON A FEW POUNDS SINCE IT’S COVERED UP IN LAYERS???
I do. I care. I want you all to be as fit on January 1 as you are now, the week before Thanksgiving.
So in addition to the regular workout of the day (WOD) posted on the blog (the one we’ll do in class at the gym each day), our holiday gift to you*, CFMers, is 30 days of Holiday Travel Workouts… every day, M-F, for the rest of the year, we’ll be posting a Holiday Travel Workout for you to do on the road…in the hotel gym…in Nana’s living room…back home on your old stomping grounds…WHEREVER!
Post a pic or video of your travel workout to Instagram and tag @crossfitmidtown. On Monday, January 6th, we’ll pick the best one and award the winner a $50 pro shop gift certificate.
