Are you frazzled yet? Are you running around like crazy? Are you dragging at the end of each day? Is working out at the bottom of your to do list and the first thing that gets scrapped? I know it’s easy to get overwhelmed this time of year, and even easier to let your workouts slip, but if you’re anything like me you need The Handle Bar more than ever during the holidays. Why you ask? Well here are a few quick reasons.

Some much needed me time. ​​​​​​​​​
December is jam packed for most of us. Family gatherings, office holiday parties, friend gift swaps, and general forced merriment, it can feel like almost every minute of our “free time” is spoken for. What’s a gal (or guy) to do? Sign up for a few classes right now, right this very minute. Now you have some scheduled me time, and the perfect excuse to decline the next stupid ugly sweater invite you get. “Sorry, I can’t, I have class.”

The perfect stress reliever.​​​​​​​​
It’s generally accepted that the holiday season is one of the most stressful times of the year. Family, friends, shopping, all the stuff that’s supposed to be fun can drive you up the wall when you try to cram it into a three week period. If you don’t let off a little steam regularly you’re bound to explode, so let off that steam at The Handle Bar and leave class feeling like a million bucks, or at least relieved of the urge to strangle everyone.

Your first line of defense against looking like Frosty the Snowman.​
Sugar cookies, cheeseballs, gingerbread men, Christmas goose, figgy pudding – whatever the heck you eat at holiday parties – do you know where it ends up? On your bum, if you’re not careful! Classes at The Handle Bar are a great total body workout combining both cardio and strength training so it’s a great way to combat the dreaded holiday spread. Santa should have the only belly that shakes like a bowl full of jelly. Get on that resolution early.​​​​​​​​​ Why wait for New Year’s to get in better shape? Start upping your fitness game at The Handle Bar now. It will only make sticking to your New Year’s Resolution easier.

Get in the holiday spirit.​​​​​​​​​​
The Handle Bar is doing some holiday themed rides, which might be just what you need if you’re feeling a little Grinchy. Keep your eyes peeled for details on the upcoming Sleigh Ride, a holiday themed ride and Toys for Tots toy drive. Get in the spirit, get in shape, and help those less fortunate, it’s a win/win/win.

Start a new tradition.​​​​​​​​​
Roughly 98.75% percent of our holiday shenanigans involve stuffing our faces, so why not start a new holiday tradition? Get together with some likeminded friends and family and take a class (or two) at The Handle Bar and follow up with a fitness themed Yankee Swap. And if you want to head to brunch after class for some face stuffing, I won’t judge you.
Do you have your own reasons for needing The Handle Bar during the holidays? Do you need to ride to keep your sanity or are you more concerned about keeping the holiday pounds at bay? Let us know!
