It’s hard to believe, but people only gain one or two pounds a year between Thanksgiving and New Years, according to the National Institutes of Health. But that can easily translate into 20 pounds over the course of 10 years if you are not paying attention. This holiday season, beat the odds and step up your fitness game by starting now and preparing for the season ahead.
