Sticking to a normal workout routine while traveling can be challenging. Studio SWEAT OnDemand allows travelers to stream online workouts like yoga and Spinning classes from the comfort of their hotel.
Pack the right stuff. Planning workouts away begins at home. Packing the right stuff for a trip will make life much easier while traveling. Start with attire: lightweight clothes that dry fast and, of course, running shoes. Add a lightweight yoga mat that folds into a square and can be squeezed into the suitcase to avoid having to exercise on the hotel room’s floor. Instead of weights, throw a couple of resistance bands or a TRX strap into the suitcase, for strength exercises.
Schedule those workouts. Whether traveling on business or vacation, it’s best to set a predetermined time for workouts, as for any other business meeting or plan for the day.
Stay active and eat properly. Even if there’s no opportunity to really exercise, there are other ways to stay active, such as walking (get out and explore the city) and using stairs rather than elevators. And, above all, maintain a healthy and balanced diet.
Create a homemade workout challenge. Track steps toward an individual goal each day with a Fitbit or even just any smartphone.
Choose the right hotel, with the right equipment. Before the trip, research to find a hotel with a gym that meets individual workout needs.
