NEW YORK, Nov. 21 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Town Sports International (TSI) wants to give consumers an alternative to the traditional stuffing that usually accompanies their Thanksgiving feast.
With the average Thanksgiving meal weighing in at a whopping 3,000 calories, TSI—operators of New York, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia Sports Clubs—today announced the launch of its "Don't Be a Butterball" hotline, a toll-free service manned by certified personal trainers and dedicated to helping consumers battle the holiday bulge, one workout at a time.The "Don't Be a Butterball" hotline center–which can be reached by dialing 1-855-I-Am-Full – opens its phone lines at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday, November 23rd, and will be fully staffed through Friday, November 25th at 11:59 p.m. ET. Callers will be able to feast on tips about how to prepare for, and recover from, their Thanksgiving meals, and non-members will also receive a free one-week pass to help them jump start their holiday fitness routine. "It's no secret that Thanksgiving often kicks off the downward spiral of holiday weight gain," said Raed Jarrar, a fitness director at the New York Sports Clubs. "We launched the 'Don't Be a Butterball' hotline as a public service to offer support during moments of overindulgence. By offering expert fitness advice and a free pass to our facilities, we hope to alleviate some of the additional stress that surfaces around the holidays." Tips and a free one-week pass are also available by emailing DontBeAButterball@town-sports.com. For additional information including Club locations and holiday hours, visit www.MySportsClubs.com.
