Do you know how many calories you're going to consume on Thanksgiving? None, right? Because calories don't count on holidays (Or birthdays. Or when you're hangry). But just in case you plan on being more stuffed than the bird that's on your table, you should also plan on some Thanksgiving workouts.

Ahead, we've checked the schedules at 41 of our favorite gyms—divided by categories like barre, cycling, and HIIT—to see who's open on Thanksgiving morning, what their Friday programs are like, and whether they've got any holiday-themed classes Black Friday specials. This year, blame an intense morning sweat session (and not the tryptophan) on your post-dinner nap.
