Don't Let the Holidays Sabotage Your Health & Fitness
Throughout the holidays, it can be extremely tempting to just embrace the food and alcohol that surround you.

You may think you can give yourself a break and that you'll start "fresh" in the New Year.

Even though this plan sounds appealing, it could actually backfire and set you back further in your health and fitness goals.

You might also be thinking the extreme opposite, pushing yourself at an unhealthy rate. Working out constantly while not getting enough food can be dangerous and unhealthy.

How can you find a balance and not sabotage your health and fitness during the holidays?

Listen in as fitness experts Grace Desimone and Neal Pire share tips on how to stay healthy throughout the holiday season.
