Don't allow time on the road to disrupt your exercise routine.
For many people, the key to a successful workout regimen is making a consistent schedule. But what happens when a trip, for business or pleasure, suddenly interrupts that rhythm? Your active lifestyle doesn't need to pause while you're traveling. Here are three ways you can stay active, no matter where you are.
#1 – Master some equipment-free moves. You don't need a lot to stay in shape. Push-ups, sit-ups, and lunges will work your arms, legs, and core – and they are all doable in even the smallest hotel room. If you travel often, you may want to devise a routine that can be completed no matter where you find yourself next.
#2 – Pack a resistance band. It won't take a lot of space in your bag, but this exercise tool offers a variety of strength-training options that you can do on the road.
#3 – Improvise based on your location. It's okay to mix things up. What opportunities are available to you right where you are? Maybe your hotel has a gym. Give it a try! Are you traveling somewhere with nice weather and pedestrian-friendly roads? Go for a run. You could also look into bike rentals, local hiking trails, or heated swimming pools.
