Over the holidays there will be a lot indulging over plenty of festive treats. We will enjoy many meals with friends and family to celebrate. Sadly, most people don’t know how to navigate their way through the season and successfully manage their weight.

“Enjoy the festive season so it doesn’t get out of hand,” said celebrity personal trainer, fitness coach and former CFL star, Tommy Europe.

Don’t panic. There’s still over a month until Christmas and there’s still plenty of time to look your best for the holidays.

“Just get started,” Tommy explained. “People want to look good, but they do things in excess. The main thing is to get started now.”

Remember to stick to the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time stick to your diet and exercise regiment. It’s ok to treat yourself over the holidays, just don’t go overboard.

“People put on the most weight between [Canadian] Thanksgiving through to New Years,” explained Tommy. “January and February are the biggest weight loss periods. January is catch-up time.”

Take advantage of the dark, dreary, mid-week evenings and get yourself to the gym with a good mix of cardio and weight lifting, and remember to fuel your body with a well-balanced, nutritious diet.
