LEAVING home doesn’t mean you have to leave fitness behind. While you travel, exercise may be even more important, since you will likely be dining out and eating on-the-go, as opposed to portion-controlled, home cooked meals. Today, most major hotels realize the importance of providing their guests with workout facilities, and with many there are no additional fees. A little online research can tell you which hotels are most accommodating. If your hotel does not offer a gym, then go checkout all the gyms and yoga studios at the latest fitness and wellness site where you can find the nearest workout places near to where you stay at Arfitclub.com.
If no facilities are available then it’s time to get creative. Resistance bands can provide a great alternative to traditional equipment. Light-weight and portable, bands fit nicely in a suitcase and can be used anywhere. Body-weight exercises like squats, lunges, push-ups, dips, and crunches can keep your muscles moving right in your hotel room too.
But what about cardio? No treadmill? No problem. Perform all of your body-weight exercises back-to-back with no rest between sets for an in-room circuit training workout. And for the truly dedicated, a jump rope also travels well, and yes you can jump rope indoors. Now that’s dedication. Just because you’re away from home doesn’t mean you can’t workout, where there’s a will, there’s a way.
