Working Out While Traveling

You may have a job that requires that you spend the majority of your time on the road. You want to get into shape but find that it is extremely difficult and inconvenient to get your workouts in. You may have a schedule that is up in the air or maybe not having the exercise equipment you normally use discourages you from exercising. Here are some tips that may help you “stay on the wagon,” even when you are jet setting across the globe:

  1. Invest in a set of resistance bands. Make sure that your resistance bands come with a book of exercises, so that you know how to work each muscle in the body. Resistance bands are terrific because they can fit in your suitcase easily, they are not heavy, and you can use them anywhere.
  2. Invest in a jump rope. Just like the exercise bands, a jump rope is light and doesn’t take up a lot of room in your suitcase. Jumping rope is great cardiovascular exercise, and even a couple of minutes can get your heart rate racing. You can alternate one-minute sets of jumping rope with one-minute sets of marching in place for a great 30-minute cardiovascular workout.
  3. Research your hotel before you book your trip. Many hotels have small fitness centers that you can use at any hour of the day. Usually, a hotel will list its amenities on its website. If you don’t see anything on their website, make a phone call and ask. Some hotels that do not have fitness centers onsite have an arrangement with a local fitness center for accommodating their guests.
  4. Bring your athletic shoes and attire with you. Make sure that you prepare for the climate of your destination, so that you can work out outside if you desire. Don’t forget to bring your music.
  5. Increase your physical activity levels by leveraging your circumstances. If you have a long layover, walk the length of the terminal a couple of times to get a good cardiovascular workout. On the airplane, do some isometric exercises for some quick resistance training. An isometric exercise allows you to contract a muscle without actually performing a movement. Good examples are tightening your glutes or squeezing your abs.
