Most of us live in a very busy and fast paced environment. We are all in a constant state of movement. Traveling from place to place and always on the go. Sometimes we spend hours in a car, on planes, buses or trains and days, weeks, months away from home in hotels, motels and inns. This makes it a constant challenge to workout while you are traveling. It may be difficult but it is not impossible. Follow these tips to make travelling and working out a breeze and part of your traveling routine.
1. Research the hotels facilities. A lot of hotels have facilities for working out. Some are better than others so do your research first. Check out hotels near where you need to be and call and ask what facilities are available for fitness. Some hotels even have their own trainers if that happens to be in your budget. If its not plan your workout a head or make sure the hotel has wifi so you can log onto www.dailyhitt.com and do your daily workout.
2. Create a travel workout kit. If you don’t want to use your hotels facilities, they don’t have wifi for you to log in and do a www.dailyhiit.com workout or they don’t even have a workout facility you can plan ahead and create a travel workout kit. Items to include can be a TRX with door mount, exercise bands, skipping rope and a yoga mat. You can do an array of exercises in your hotel room with these items or a combination of these items.
3. Make use of whatever space available in your room. If you don’t have a travel kit, wifi or a facility to workout at you can use your body weight. Push aside chairs and tables and do some of your favourite body weighted exercises. These can include exercises such as squats, lunges, push ups, supermans, hip raises, glute bridges, planks, bicycles, jumping jacks and burpees.
4. Get outside. If the weather permits grab your running shoes and hit the streets for a long run, intervals, hills or even a brisk walk. Remember to check with the front desk or a local to make sure the area is safe and always tell some one where you are heading. There are plenty of apps to help you with your workout. If you happen to have an iphone try www.pearsports.com and download their free coaching app. It will help you keep your heart rate up and in a personalized training zone.
Happy travelling and training!
