Fit Style – Working Out While Traveling

Just because you’re earning extra airline miles this Summer doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice logging miles in your sneakers. Sure, it’s difficult to stay motivated while traveling, but these tips will make working out while traveling a tropical breeze and have you coming home guilt free.

Think locally. Call ahead to gyms in your destination city and see if they offer deals for first-timers or limited day passes. You can get usually a 5-day pass for a fraction of the price and try a cool class that isn’t offered at your home gym.

Pack like a gym rat. In addition to lightweight, weather-appropriate workout clothes, bring along a theraband for strength training and a jump rope for cardio. Jumping rope for a few minutes in the morning will pump up your metabolism and burn more calories than any other cardio.

Hit up a different terminal. Let your flight delay work for you by working your way over to a different terminal to kill time and calories. Walking is also a good defense mechanism in the event that you’re surrounded my un-healthy restaurant options.

Become a video gamer. No, no, don’t play World of Warcraft and expect to get a six-pack. Utilize YouTube fitness gurus to motivate you and give you killer workouts for free! Some tried and true sweat inducing vids are: Fitnessista’s ‘Ab Burner‘, To Live and Diet in LA’s ‘12-Min Sweaty Cardio‘ and Blogilates ‘Body Slimming Workout for Beginners‘.

    These are amazing tips that I wish I would have been motivated by when I went on vacation last month! I packed my gym shoes and workout clothes, and they never saw the light of day haha. I think it’s so good to have a fitness plan for a trip because it makes you way more likely to actually follow through!
