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.
