On Saturday November 7th working out in Gold's Gyms the world over won't cost you a penny, as Gold's Gyms and the American Diabetes Association team up for their first ever "Burn-A-Thon" to help raise diabetes awareness.
They want to see 180,000,000 calories burned this Saturday.
The Burn-A-Thon is also the launch event for the American Diabetes Association's "Stop Diabetes" campaign and exercise, independently of weight loss, can have a dramatic impact on a person's glycemic control and insulin sensitivity.
Sadly there's no Gold's Gym here in Ottawa.

(BTW - thanks to Gold's for designating Weighty Matters one of their Gold's Gym approved blogs and for providing me with the shiny blog badge)
