The end of the year is riddled with circumstances that make it all too easy to lose sight of fitness goals. For runners and tennis players, cooler temperatures and the lack of daylight mean less time outside.

While we can’t be there to coach you through each of these events, we've put together a few tips to make it easier to survive the holiday season without sacrificing the progress you worked so hard for all year.
