Go ahead and burn the turkey this thanksgiving!

#BurnTheTurkey encourages Esterhazy to burn a few calories on Turkey Day via fun exercise improv to benefit families via Food Banks Canada

While Anytime Fitness doesn’t actually recommend burning your turkey to a crisp this Thanksgiving, the world’s largest fitness franchise does recommend burning turkey calories. For the second year in a row, Anytime Fitness is helping its members and the general public keep the holiday weight off with its #BurnTheTurkey campaign.

According to the Calorie Control Council, the average Thanksgiving meal is between 3,000 to 4,500 calories and a whopping 229 grams of fat. As a result, Anytime Fitness is helping Canadians to work off some of those butter-laden mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie slices through tips showcasing a series of fun, exercise improvisations.

Anytime Fitness invites people from Esterhazy and the surrounding area to share their own #BurnTheTurkey ideas from Oct. 1 to Oct. 10 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. In addition, for each original photo or video submitted using the hashtag #BurnTheTurkey, Anytime Fitness will donate one meal to Food Banks Canada® to help families in need this holiday season.

Tag @anytimefitnessesterhazy in your photos as there will be Gift Certicates for Whippletree Coffee up for grabs for the most creative burn the turkey photo, the member or community member with the most comments, likes and shares on their photo and the most engaged member.  And to provide extra support during the busy holiday season, Anytime Fitness Esterhazy will be hosting a food drive in the gym.

Members and the general public are invited to participate by dropping off non-perishable items to the club between October 1 -10, 2016.

“We want to help people get to a healthier place,” says Jolene de Vries, at Anytime Fitness in Esterhazy. “BurnTheTurkey is all about enjoying the big thanksgiving feast, but also to get creative and dream up fun ways to burn some of those calories.”
