CHANHASSEN, Minn., Dec. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The holidays are time to enjoy family and friends, but also can be busy and stressful with all the seemingly endless decorating, shopping, events, travel and more. That's why Life Time (NYSE: LTH) is launching a 20-day digital Holiday Hustle program – to help people prioritize their health and truly enjoy this "most wonderful time of the year."
Led by Life Time's Coach Anika Christ, RD, CPT, and her digital coaching team, Holiday Hustle is available on the Life Time Digital app and emphasizes two core habits: Eating 30 grams of protein at each meal and completing a daily 15-minute workout.
Part of Life Time's large array of digital weight loss and training programs, the program offers both a low-stress daily movement challenge and nutrition guidance with dietitian-approved versions of many of the season's favorite recipes. Participants also have access to Life Time's credentialed weight loss and training experts for support — including Dynamic Personal Trainers, nutrition coaches, and registered dietitians — along with practical tips and tricks to manage holiday stress and travel.
"At this time of year, it's important to find a way to prioritize nutrition without depriving yourself of seasonal celebrations and nostalgia," said Christ. "Focusing on what we can do – exercising, protein intake, and eating healthy without robbing yourself of holiday indulgences – is far more practical and less stressful than focusing on what we can't. We need to remember that a little investment in ourselves can make a huge difference."
Because meal planning and the holidays don't always go hand in hand easily, the program offers a flexible nutritional approach, with a focus on consuming 30 grams of protein with each meal, along with fun seasonal recipes like a ginger snap protein shake, turkey pumpkin chili and sweet potato mash.
In addition, 15-minute bodyweight workouts are delivered through the Life Time app and address five areas: upper body, lower body, core, conditioning and mobility. Exercises are designed to be completed from anywhere and, on days when people have more than 15 minutes to commit to exercise, they can be easily stacked to create up to a 60-minute sweat session.
