Between the sugar cookies around every corner and being in a land far, far away from your gym, the holidays can be tough on your waistline.

But don’t get yourself in a rut that only the strongest of New Year’s resolutions can dig you out of—Dempsey Marks and Olivia Weinstein, the creators of fitness and nutrition program PreGame Fit, are here to help you through the season.

“Getting a workout in over the holidays is tough, but it is possible,” Marks, 24, tells PEOPLE. “The key is keeping it short, convenient and effective—something you can do anywhere with no special equipment.”

Try doing exercises that use only your body weight, like the wintery speed skaters and mountain climbers, or add a light dumbbell and try out wood choppers—all exercises in the PreGame Fit program.

“PregameFIT workouts are designed to be done in small spaces—hotel rooms, guest bedrooms, grandma’s basement,” Marks says. “You don’t even have to go out into the cold. They require no equipment and take just 30 minutes so there really are no excuses for not getting your holiday sweat on!”

And be prepared before you walk into a holiday bash filled with scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and gingerbread treats. Weinstein, 24, says the key is to never show up to a party hungry. Try her Taco Tuesday Tuna Salad recipe below—a twist on the classic avocado toast—to get a boost of healthy fats before you head out.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
