THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - The Thomasville YMCA wants to make sure its members don't feel too guilty when they're indulging in their Thanksgiving meals.

More than 100 members showed up Tuesday night to work up a sweat.

The club's "If You Gobble You Will Wobble" event incorporates team building with two hours of circuit training. 

The intense workout kick starts an effort to stay fit this holiday season.

Fitness Director Kim Smith said, “Everybody eats so many calories the week of Thanksgiving.  They say the average American will gain between seven and nine pounds between October 31st and January 1st.  And we are trying to combat that.”

The Y also has a “Holiday Trimmings” program to help members keep track of their weight during the season.
