Sunday is game day and that means wings, pizza, and chips for many people. Some, however, were able to burn calories before kickoff.
“You’re probably going to have, what I call it, a food hangover after everything we tend to eat today, but again, it’s never too late to start,” said Tammy Heigh, community events manager for the Peak Health & Wellness Center.
She’s talking about working out.
Heigh led some of Sunday's workout at the Peak to prepare people for a day of snacking and drinking.
She partnered with Don Johnson, an instructor and personal trainer.
Johnson said that while he’s not encouraging you to pick up that second slice of pizza, he understands what goes into the Super Bowl festivities.
“I’m not encouraging people to eat their crap today," he said. "If you stick to some of the broccolis, have good water in you, snap peas and stuff like that, but if that’s your tradition, by all means, indulge a little bit, maybe a lot, come see me tomorrow.”
Some of those who burned fat before the big game were even rewarded but they really had to sweat for it.
“It was really cool for the Peak to give away a free membership, it makes you work a little harder,” Member Gretchen Fowell said
Three people won the free month membership all in exchange for four minutes of continuous burpees.
Heigh said regardless of how you eat on Sunday, there’s always tomorrow.
“Indulge in the day, have your fun, enjoy it, and start fresh tomorrow,” she said.
The Peak offers a variety of fitness classes ranging from yoga to cycling as well as discounts for seniors looking to get in shape.
