Twas the Night before Christmas Fitness parody

Since Christmas Eve is upon us, all of us at Fitness Kickboxing Canada wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and hope you will enjoy a little fitness parody on the famous classic "Twas the night before Christmas"

Twas the night before Christmas,
And all through the gym,
The fit buffs were praying
"Please let me be thin".

Most were quite active,
On treadmills they tread,
While visions of buffness
danced in their heads.

Out in the taverns,
A few sat a drinking,
With thoughts of fitness
They would not be thinking.

Some on the ski hills,
Downhill they'd been racing,
In hopes of some calories
They'd soon be erasing.

Couch potatoes sat,
With TV's a glow,
Thinking, money on fitness
I will not blow.

I drank all my water,
And checked out my weight,
With just one more set,
I would no doubt feel great.

I stared at my program,
My heart was not in it,
Surely six classes a week,
Should have did it.

"Some protein might help,"
I said with a shiver,
But each place I called
Refused to deliver.

I had nearly concluded
That my workout was done,
With my cardio depending
To kickboxing I'd come.

When all of a sudden,
The door opened wide,
And plump old Saint Fit
Came running inside.

My spirit was lifted,
By this old fat fellow,
In red suit and white beard
He started to bellow:

"What kind of trainer
Would stop a workout",
His belly did shake
As he started to shout.

"Two more and one more!
He kept on repeating!
My arms were exhausted,
Fatigue soon found me cheating!

"His message delivered,
He vanished from sight,
But I heard his laughter
Outside in the night.

"Good health and good fitness,
Is well within sight!
Merry Christmas to All,
And to all, a good night."
