English term or phrase: leap on over
I have to translate the following phrase into Argentinean Spanish:

Happy Leap Year! What better way to celebrate than to leap on over to the gym!

I'm having trouble finding the meaning of "leap on over". Does someone know the exact translation for this phrase?

It refers to miss the gym session. In Spanish we would say "saltarse el gimnasio" but I am afraid I do not know whether there is another variation in Argentinian Spanish. It is a game of words, playing with the fact that "a leap year" (a year with 366 days) is a kind of jump over the calendar. I hope it helped.

pasarse por el gimnasio

Con todo mi respeto hacia Melissa, el significado es precisamente el contrario de "saltarse el gimnasio". Tiene toda la pinta de ser un anuncio para el gimnasio en cuestión, o quizás un anuncio para animar a la gente a ser más activa. Es un juego de palabras con "leap" y "leap year", pero a mí no se me ocurre ningún modo de conservar el mismo juego de palabras en castellano.

pegar el salto al gimnasio

Siguiendo el hilo a la respuesta de Robert, ahí va mi segundo intento:

¡Feliz año bisiesto! y ¿qué mejor manera de celebrarlo que pasar de "dobles siestas" y pegar el salto al gimnasio?!

(Por cierto, yo tampoco sé qué tiene que ver gastronomía, ¿temas de dietas, quizás?)
