Battling Tryptophan: Where to workout this Thanksgiving


Macy's ParadeThanksgiving isn’t exactly known as a day for burning calories. But as we reminded you last year, there are satisfying benefits to working out on turkey day—like a faster metabolism for the big meal, and portion and temper control at the table. So, should you feel inspired, we bring you a few festive options for working out on Thanksgiving.

If you’re still not convinced, we’ve included a few post-Thursday events as well. Just make sure all the tryptophan has worn off before you attempt anything too strenuous.
