According to news reports, the average person consumes approximately 3,700 to 4,500 calories and 229 grams of fat on Thanksgiving Day alone. Professional fitness trainer and founder of Primal Fit Miami, Matt Pack, is hosting a special “Turkey Buster” workout designed to burn the same number of calories as those consumed during the typical holiday feast. Spread out over the course of four days, the signature routine includes a pre-Thanksgiving meal workout and daily training sessions that week leading up to the holiday.
“My custom workout will not only make room for one’s dinner and dessert, but include simple tricks designed to prevent the lethargy and tiredness that is typically associated with eating a large, multi-course meal,” explains Pack.
According to Pack, the key to extended caloric burning is intense use of body weight with timed exercises. By pushing the body to work hard during a short period of time, a metabolic disturbance is made, creating a caloric deficit that makes way for Thanksgiving meal.
The “Turkey Buster” workout includes four semi-private workouts taking place on Monday, Nov. 22, Tuesday, Nov. 23 and Wednesday, Nov. 24th at 7 p.m. and an early morning workout on Thursday, Nov. 25 (Thanksgiving Day) at 8 a.m. The 60-minute workout sessions are open to the public for $14 a class or $55 total for all four days (value: $100). Space is limited. To reserve a spot in class, call 305.951.6648.
