"Turkey jam" burns calories before eating


WAUSAU (WAOW) - While many people think of the many ways they can stuff themselves this Thanksgiving, some stick with a healthy approach to the holiday.

  The YMCA in downtown Wausau held its annual Thanksgiving aerobics session, called "Turkey Jam."

  Calories were melting away with every hop, step and jump.

  They incorporated moves from zumba to hi-low aerobics to kickboxing and yoga.

  Kara Torkelson/Aerobics Instructor:"Everybody in the community.  You just need to bring in a canned food item."

  The best part, it was all free.

  Those who participated were asked to bring in a non-perishable food item that would be donated to a local food pantry.
