Travel Workouts You Can Do Anywhere

Finding ways to work out while traveling can be difficult- but here are five workouts you can do in a short amount of time, that don’t require equipment, meaning they are perfect for traveling or doing anywhere!

High Intensity Interval Training: Focuses on short periods of all-out work follow by short periods of active rest. This makes the body work harder than it does during steady-state cardio. Some great examples: Tuck Jump, Lunges, Squat Jumps, Mountain Climber, Burpees, Sprints, and Planks.

Pilates: While you can do Pilates with a reformer or props, you can also do it with just your body weight. It can be just as effective using only your weight and is another great program you can do anywhere. Popular moves to try: Bridges, Leg lifts, T-Press, toe taps, Arm Circles, and push ups.

Circuit Training: You can put together your favorite circuit to get your heart rate up,  burn fat and get a good workout in 30 mins or less. Set up 2 circuits that you do for 10 mins each with a warm up and cool down of 5 mins of each for a great 30 min workout. Remember circuit training is all about no rest in between exercises. Choose exercises such as high knees, lunges, push ups, squats, and planks.

Go for a run: Most hotels have a treadmill but you can also take to the streets using one of the million running apps that are available and find a trail near you. It’s a great way to get a cardio workout and see the sites of wherever you are visiting.

Yoga: While yoga is normally done on a mat, it can also be done on carpet or any soft surface. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, yoga is great to improve your flexibility and muscle strength. Some great moves to add to your next workout: Cobra pose, warrior pose, downward dog, airplane pose, one legged prayer, and childs pose.

Finding quick and simple workouts that you can do anywhere including on the road are the perfect way to stay on target with your health and fitness goals.

What makes you the Featured Fan?
I love Promax Cookies n’ Cream bar! It’s my go to post workout snack. When I’m really trying to get through a hard workout it’s what I think about, I use it as motivation because I literally love the flavor that much!

Which Promax bar do you like best?  Cookies n Cream … better than any Oreo I’ve ever had 🙂

Why is Fitness and Nutrition important to you?
Fitness and nutrition is important to me because I wasn’t always in shape or making the best health decisions. I’ve been overweight, I’ve been a drinker and a smoker and a fast food regular. Now that I prioritize my health I feel so much better both mentally and physically. Our bodies are an amazing thing and when you fuel it correctly and train you can accomplish awesome things. Since I changed my health habits I’ve ran 3 marathons, a Tough Mudder and competed in the bikini division of NANBF.

What is one unique thing about you?
I am relentlessly determined. Some may call it stubborn, but when I want to do something I push until I accomplish it. I literally submerge myself in it. For instance, I started running and 6 months later completed my first marathon. When I started lifting I competed in my first bodybuilding competition 8 months later and won Bikini Tall Open and Bikini Tall Novice.

Not fitness related but another fun fact is the first time I went in an airplane I jumped out! Don’t worry, it was planned — I was skydiving and I recommend it to an thrill seeker.
