Get Fit During the Big Game

Ah, the Super Bowl. A night of football, long-awaited commercial debuts, and a killer halftime show. It’s also filled with friends and family, but there’s one problem: Super Bowl Sunday is brimming with tons of resolution-busting foods.

On average, people consume around 2,400 calories during the game (and celebrations around it!). But the Big Game doesn’t have to mean big gain!

The good news is that you don’t have to sit back and let the Super Bowl undo the healthy lifestyle you work so hard to maintain. We’ve compiled a fitness challenge that will test your inner athlete to tackle certain workout moves at key moments throughout the game.

Want an even bigger challenge? Add weights to the exercises, or make it a competition with friends to see who can go for the entire game.

Get ready to score a touchdown with these healthy game day snacks, and then get ready to fit this fun challenge in between all of the touchdowns and guacamole. Ready? Break!
