    During the holiday season, there’s so much delicious food and beverages to be had that we often end up gaining a few pounds.

    Leading New York nutritionist, Carl Germano head of research and development for SURGEX and a member of NY State Board of Nutrition suggests these simple, convenient, plyometric exercises that do not require any fancy equipment and can all be done in less than 15 minutes from the convenience of your living room, office and even hotel room.
