Between work and my blog I have been traveling a lot lately. I feel so lucky to get to travel and don’t take it for granted, as travel is such a huge passion of mine. That said, maintaining healthy habits can be difficult when you’re in a new place and out of your normal routine. Your sleep schedule is off and you’re eating out a lot. You’re also not near your gym to get in your regular workouts.
Thanks to the magic of modern hotels, most places I stay when traveling have a gym. Heck, most of them have gyms so nice they rival real gyms. The challenge I have when I travel is not getting access to a gym but getting in the right mindset to actually go and use it.
A trick I have been using is bringing gym clothes with me on my trip and unpacking them and leaving them right by the door in my hotel room. That way every time I go in and out of my room I’m reminded that a good workout is in reach.
Most of the time it works and I find myself down in the hotel gym breaking a sweat. I’ve developed a little travel workout routine that I love. It keeps me engaged, isn’t too hard, and is able to be done even in a bare bones hotel gym with minimal equipment.
My go-to hotel gym workout
Repeat 3 times
- 15 bicep curls
- 15 upright rows
- 15 hammer curls
- Run for three songs on your playlist
While not a professionally created workout by any means, it takes me less than 45 minutes to complete and I always walk away feeling like a rockstar.
Not to mention my Adidas NMDs. I have these in a few colors and am obsessed with them all.
While I may not be able to workout every trip, I try my best to make it as easy for myself to do as often as possible. Baby steps, right?
Question of the Day: Do you workout when you travel? What are your tips for making use of the hotel gym?
