Tips to Eat Healthy this Holiday Season

Winter is formally upon us, meaning that Christmas is just around the corner - a time of year where banquets, dinners and get togethers are almost weekly events. Sweets and junk food are a norm at every snack table; and in light of this it is very easy to be forgetful about your health.

When we go to the gym, we usually don’t find ourselves thinking about the unseen benefits of getting fit. This is especially true when it comes to our cores.

A toned core has many physical benefits that are felt more and seen less, which add incentive beyond physical appearance to this New Year’s resolution!
