THEO: THANK YOU, TAYLOR. TIME NOW FOR 11 FITNESS. JOINING US THIS MORNING, TEDDY SAVAGE FROM PLANET FITNESS. GOOD MORNING, TEDDY. >> GOOD MORNING, THEO. HOW ARE YOU? THEO: I’M GOOD. THANKSGIVING NEXT WEEK. HOW DO WE ENJOY GOOD FOOD AND KEEP THINGS HEALTHY? IT’S A DELICATE BALANCE. >> YOU SAID THE MAIN WORD THERE, THEO. BALANCE. I WANT YOU TO ENJOY THE MEAL, INDULGE IN YOUR FAVORITE FOODS BUT MINDFULLY. YOUR BODY WANTS TO CREATE SYMMETRY AND BALANCE, BUT YOU HAVE TO MOVE BEFORE YOU EAT, RIGHT? SO I’M GOING TO SHOW YOU A COUPLE OF FUN CARDIO ALTERNATIVES BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT HAVE A TREADMILL OR AN ELLIPTICAL IN YOUR LIVING ROOM, OKAY? THEO: OKAY. >> THE FIRST IS GOING TO BE STAR JACKS. WE’RE ALL STARS, RIGHT? THEO, YOU’RE A STAR. I’M A STAR. EVERYBODY’S A STAR. GOES JUST LIKE THIS. OUT AND COMING IN. YOU GOT YOUR PALMS OUT, YOUR CHEST IS NICE AND PRONOUNCED AND PROUD AND SMILING BIG. NOW ON THE TOES, YOU WANT TO DO THIS FOR 30 SECONDS. BREATHE IN THROUGH YOUR NOSE AND OUT THROUGH YOUR MOUTH. THEO: ARE WE DOING THIS BEFORE OR AFTER WE EAT? >> THIS IS BEFORE YOU EAT. GET CALORIES BURNED BEFORE AND REPLENISH YOUR BODY AFTER, RIGHT? THE NEXT ONE WE’LL CALL TURKEY HOPS BECAUSE I CAN’T WAIT TO GET TURKEY. AGAIN, THAT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE PARTS OF THE MEAL. WIDEN YOUR BASE UP AGAIN. PRONOUNCE YOUR CHEST. WE’RE GOING TO TAP THE FLOOR, HOP UP, TAPPING WITH THE OPPOSITE ARM. THIS IS ALTERNATING BUT AGAIN YOU LAND SOFTLY SO YOU IMPACT THE MUSCLES, NOT THE JOINTS. THAT’S IMPORTANT TO SAFEGUARD AGAINST INJURY. THE NEXT ONE IS SKIERS. IT’S NOT THAT COLD FOR SNOW, BUT USE YOUR IMAGINATION. THAT TRAVELS WITH YOU. IMAGINE YOU’RE A SEE SKIER AND YOU’VE GOT YOUR POLES. YOU’RE BOUNDING LATERALLY AND MAKING SURE TO ROTATE ARMS FROM THE SHOULDERS. AGAIN, KEEPING YOUR CHEST, SHOULDERS, CHIN, AND EYES FORWARD. 30 SECONDS, AND THIS IS MY FAVORITE ONE, THEO, IT’S FAST FEET. IT’S KIND OF LIKE JAMES BROWN, GOING HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE. SIDE TO SIDE, GO THIS WAY. THEN I COME BACK THAT WAY. AND THIS IS JUST, AGAIN, REALLY FUN WAYS TO INFUSE CARDIO INTO THE HOLIDAYS. THEO: A LOT OF FUN. PUT MUSIC ON TOO. AT PLANET FITNESS, YOU’VE IMPLEMENTED A LOT OF SAFETY MEASURES. TALK TO US ABOUT THOSE. >> WE LAUNCHED THE SOCIAL FITNESSING GUIDELINES AND THEO, IT ACTUALLY STARTS BEFORE YOU COME TO THE GYM. IF YOU DOWNLOAD THE FREE PLAN THE FITNESS APP, CHECK OUT CROWD METER. IT TELLS YOU HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN YOUR CLOSEST GYM TO MAX OCCUPANCY RATIO. DECIDE WHEN TO COME IN AND HAVE A SAFE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOU AND THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU. WHEN YOU COME IN, IT’S A TOUCHLESS CHECK-IN, USING THAT SAME APP. WE HAVE ASKED EVERYBODY TO MASK UP WHILE YOU WALK AROUND THE GYM AND WE HAVE EVERYBODY WIPING DOWN THE EQUIPMENT BEFORE AND AFTER EACH USE. THAT’S WHAT WE CALL GYMING COMPETENTLY AND BEING CLEAN-SIDERATE. THEO: HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED DURING THE PANDEMIC? >> INVEST A LITTLE TIME EACH DAY. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN JUST 10 TO 15 MINUTES OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY IS NOT ONLY GOOD FOR YOUR CARDIO RESPIRATORY HEALTH BUT ALSO GREAT FOR YOUR MENTAL HEALTH. AND RIGHT NOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FEELING STRESSED, WHETHER IT BE PANDEMIC RELATED, HOLIDAY RELATED, OR JUST LIFE RELATED. WHEN YOU WORK OUT, YOUR BRAIN RELEASES SEROTONIN TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER. THEO: VERY, VERY TRUE. NOT EVERYONE IS COMFORTABLE GETTING INTO THE GYM, BUT YOU HAVE ONLINE CLASSES? >> YES, WE STILL HAVE THE UNITED WE MOVE CAMPAIGN. IT’S STILL GOING SUPER STRONG. MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY AT 7:00 P.M. EASTERN STANDARD TIME, ON THE PLANET FITNESS FACEBOOK LIVE PAGE, IF YOU LOG IN, MYSELF OR ONE OF MY OTHER FELLOW TRAIN LERS LEAD YOU THROUGH A QUICK, 20-MINUTE WORKOUT TO KEEP YOU MOVING, THEO AND GROOVIN’. YOU DON’T NEED EQUIPMENT AT ALL. JUST HAVE FUN. THEO: ANY LAST PIECE OF ADVISE? >> YES. ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS. EVEN IF IT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT THIS YEAR, BUT REMEMBER, YOUR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH SHOULD ALWAYS BE NUMBER ONE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYBODY. THEO: TEDDY, THANK YOU SO MUCH. LOVE THE ENERGY. THANKS FOR JOINING US THIS MORNING. YOU S
