T he day af­ter Thanks­giv­ing is known as Black Fri­day but it’s also an op­por­tu­nity for Fit Fri­day — con­sid­er­ing the likely thou­sands of calo­ries con­sumed yes­ter­day. The av­er­age Amer­i­can eats more than 4,000 calo­ries and 200 grams of fat dur­ing a hol­i­day get to­gether, ac­cord­ing to the Calo­rie Con­trol Coun­cil.

Thanks­giv­ing also hap­pens to be a time that friends and fam­ily come to­gether for more than food. It’s a hol­i­day spent with loved ones. Eat­ing turkey and pump­kin pie isn’t the only way fam­i­lies can bond dur­ing this time. Fit­ness ac­tiv­i­ties are an­other way to connect while burn­ing calo­ries at the same time. Check out these ex­er­cise ideas that will be just that much more fun with a group of friends, fam­ily or both.
