Thanksgiving-week Workouts in Uptown and Metairie

Thanksgiving is upon us, and while we always encourage following healthy eating habits, we also acknowledge that temptations are a part of this annual feast – not to mention the pressure from relatives to indulge. Don’t fret. Your JCC fitness team is here to help you earn and burn that extra helping of your favorite aunt’s sweet potato casserole.

Join us at either location for our annual Turkey Earner and Turkey Burner workouts. Details are below:

TURKEY EARNER | WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21

UPTOWN
Come EARN DAT TURKEY! Join Winnie, Josh, and Brittany as they help you earn that delicious Thanksgiving meal. This special workout will feature 20 minutes of Beats (Indoor Cycling), 20 minutes of HIIT, and 20 minutes of Mat Pilates.

We will have TWO groups: Group 1 will start at 10:00 AM and Group 2 will start at 11:30 AM. Both groups will start in the cycling studio. Sign-up is required to participate. Please see the sign-up sheets by the fitness center stairway exit.

METAIRIE
Join Julian and Alexis from 8:30 to 9:30 AM for a special partner workout that is sure to burn calories while having a great time. Bring a buddy to class for free, or pair up with a person in the class, and get huffin' for the stuffin'!

TURKEY BURNER | FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23

UPTOWN
Come BURN DAT TURKEY (and maybe slice of pie!). This special workout will feature 20 minutes of performance cycling with Eve, 20 minutes of HIIT with Caroline, and 20 minutes of "Josh-i-lates" with Josh.

We will have TWO groups: Group 1 will start at 9:00 AM and Group 2 will start at 10:30 AM. Both groups will start in the cycling studio. Sign-up is required to participate. Please see the sign-up sheets by the fitness center stairway exit.

METAIRIE
Join Alexis from 8:30 to 9:30 AM for a special Ultimate Workout class that will be kicked up a notch to burn off that Thanksgiving Day feast. Work off those calories in a boot camp style class that is sure to leave you feeling less guilty for your splurges!

As a final reminder, both Uptown and Metairie locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day to allow our staff time to spend with their families. We will be open regular hours on Thursday, November 21 and Friday, November 23. Regularly scheduled group exercise classes those days will be canceled, except Monica’s Low Impact class Uptown and our special Turkey Earner and Turkey Burner classes.
