          Who knew that a vigorous 90 minute fitness center workout could help so many other people? For the third year in a row, the Kirmayer Fitness Center at The University of Kansas Medical Center hosted Hustle For Harvesters…a pre-Thanksgiving community workout.

            45 people, each who donated food to Harvesters, the community food network of Kansas City, went through cardio and strength conditioning along with stretching and mobility exercises…plus some good old fashioned fun and games.

            Amber Long, director of the Kirmayer Fitness Center and the workout leader, describes the event, explains why they do it, and has some practical advice on how not to sabotage your health with your Thanksgiving meal.
