How To Pack For Fitness + Actually Workout When Traveling
By Andrea Wise
Traveling can definitely throw a wrench into anyone’s workout routine.
Throw in the stress of family time or the calling of the beach/city/spa/whatever else is at your destination and, well, your usually on-point workout routine is likely to take a back seat.
The solution is to pack for fitness, to commit to a shorter workout (it will be easier to stick with!), and to stay consistent no matter where your travels take you.
Here are a few ‘go-to-no-fail’ ideas that will keep you traveling in fit style.
Step 1: Pack For Fitness
No gym – no problem! Staying in a place with a gym? Even better! You’ll have extra tools to use during your sweat session when the cardio equipment is occupied (or, worse yet, saddled with an “out-of-order” sign).
Short on time? Do whatever you can whether that means 8 minutes or 48 minutes. Consistency is KEY!
Step 2: Commit To A Quick Workout
With your fitness tools in tow, you can complete this full-body workout anywhere from the beach to your hotel room.
Tight on time? Complete 1 round. Have a bit more free time? Complete multiple rounds if you have time to spare.
- Warm up – jump rope for 30 seconds. Repeat 2 times.
- 10 Inch Worms with Push-up
- 15 Neutral Grip Band Rows
- 15 Band Bicep Curls
- Jump rope 30s
- 15 Lateral Lunges (each leg)
- 10 Burpees
- 10 Knee to Alternating Elbows (each leg)
Complete additional rounds based on your spare time.
