My gym has limited holiday hours and I'm trying to stay in decent shape over the next few weeks. Any suggestions?

the gym at my brother's apartment complex is terrible. I try to improvise shit into my routine but the only free weights they have are bowflex dbs :mamoru:

I'll be driving up to my dad's in a few days and all he has is a 15lb db and a treadmill :wtc:

I just got a free trial pass to a gym since the weight room at my FD sucks, but the trial pass hours are the hours I work, and is closed tomorrow, FTL. 4 days without lift :/

Don't they know we need to get our work outs in! And you know straight after the New Year it will be so crowded with all the new year's resolution people

As far as getting work outs in...try running on a local track or around the neighborhood? But besides that, you can also just limit what you eat during this time, because all know it's very tough around this time of year. I thought I'd share a great tip I got from one of those fitness reality shows about allowing yourself your favorite "bad" thing (like cake or ice cream) on one day during this time. After that, resume your normal, healthy routine. By allowing one indulgence, you get it out of your system and don't feel like your missing out on ALL of the holiday treats. It worked for me! I got right back on track.
