September Walking & Biking Tip

Travel Fitness

Whether for business or pleasure, travel often puts a kink in our fitness routines. But it doesn’t have to! Use these tips to help you fit in a workout while you are away.
• Always pack your exercise clothes and shoes.
• Pack fitness DVDs, resistance bands, and a jump rope in your suitcase.
• Try a quick, fat-burning workout in your hotel room. Try Pinterest or YouTube on your computer for some free workouts.
• Prioritize your workouts by setting your alarm for 30 minutes earlier. It is easier to work out before you are exhausted at the end of the day.
• Walk or run anywhere you are! You can find great running routes for local cities by using MapMyRun.
• Shoot for 10,000 steps/day. If you don’t have a pedometer, use your smart phone and download an app.
• Book hotel rooms with fitness centers and pools if possible.
• Remember, anything is better than nothing. Fit in fitness everywhere you can. Take the stairs, park further away; take 5-10 minutes while in your hotel room to perform push-ups, planks, crunches, tricep push-ups, etc.
