If you travel regularly for business (or pleasure) you may find it hard to stick to your fitness routine. Not only that, but once you have stopped your routine because of travel, it may be difficult to get back into it when you get home. The next thing you know, you have stopped working out for months, and now you have to start all over again.
It doesn't have to be that way. With a little planning you can either stick to your current routine, or create a special workout just for travel. It’s totally doable. Your Amarillo personal trainer can help you create a workout that you can do right in your hotel room.
How Can I Stay Fit While I Travel?
Many hotels have gyms available for guest use. You may not always have a say in where you stay, but if possible, choose a hotel with a gym. This will allow you to keep your current routine intact. Another idea is free passes. If you know where you’re going to be ahead of time, arrange for a "trial membership" of a local gym near your hotel.
If the gym just isn't possible, don't worry. You can get an effective, total body workout right in your hotel room.
How Can I Exercise Without A Gym?
One of the best ways to do this is with body weight strength training. Your Amarillo personal trainer can give you some tips and help you design a workout that is right for you. Some basic exercises that can help you stay fit are:
Push-ups. This is a basic exercise that shouldn't be overlooked. It works your upper body and your core.
Squats. Squats can be done anywhere as well, and work your lower body.
Burpees. This whole body exercise combines strength training and cardio to blast calories and get your heart rate up.
Another option is resistance bands. These are great because they are lightweight and you can pack them in your suitcase to take anywhere. There are a multitude of exercises you can do with resistance bands, and they are a good substitute for your current gym workout. You can use them to do squats, presses, rows and more.
Finally, don't overlook the great outdoors. You are in a new town, why not explore it? Leave the hotel room and go for a brisk walk or a run. Find a nearby park or other location and do your strength training outdoors.
