Local gyms hosting holiday events

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Experts say you can gain up to seven pounds during the holiday season. Many local gyms are hosting holiday events now to help you lose before you gain.

Pepper Geddings Recreation Center will be opening its doors, for free, from Monday through Saturday. Visitors can get free access to fitness and water exercise classes along with all fitness amenities.

You can call Pepper Geddings Recreation Center at 918-2280 for more information.

The City of Myrtle Beach continues registration for the "Choose" health and fitness programs. Head over to cityofmyrtlebeach.com/choose.html to sign up and Choose to Lose, Choose to Move, Choose to Train or Choose to Swim during the 11-week sessions.

Younger family members can also participate in A Fit Kidz session, but space is limited, so sign up early.

On Saturday, January 4th, the "Choose" series will kick off with a Health and Fitness fair from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Pepper Geddings Recreation Center.

During the month of December, Planet Fitness will be offering certain memberships for a zero down enrollment fee.

Gold's Gym always offers free week-trials for locals to check out their facility located on Jason Blvd.

"It is okay to enjoy those family meals, you just have to understand there is a balance," explained owner Tedd Capp.

The staff will work with you on eating habits and encourage you in changing your lifestyle to be healthier.

They are gearing up for their three-month challenge starting in January.

"If they win or if they lose, they still win because they accomplish something that could have been hard for them," said Capp.

Core Fitness is also planning a 24-day challenge to include a workout regimen with nutritional guidance and a cleanse.

For Adam Rice, with ISI Elite, he wants to challenge his clients for a cause. "Hope for the Holidays" program will last until the end of the year, with teams earning points by losing weight. They are also raising money for local families, including Wesley Baker. The Conway football player is still recovering from severe injuries after being hit by an 18-wheeler in July.

"To help people in need right now - that could easily be me, that could easily be you in a second," Rice told his clients. "This family right here, I'm sure they never thought something like that could happen."

The teams will be raising money until December 20, with proceeds going to the family.
