I hear the excuse all the time: "I can't workout while I'm on the road. I don't have time. There's no gym." I'm going to call you out on that with a big ole good natured: BS!! That is absolutely NOT true. You can easily fit a 10 minute total body workout into any room and any day and I'm going to show you how!
I travel a LOT for work. And I mean a lot. I organize worldwide retreats, I travel throughout the United States and Canada hosting Wellness Parties and Radiant Health Weeks, and throughout all of this I'm expected to stay healthy, look healthy, and feel great! (After all, would YOU hire a health coach that didn't look healthy and have high energy?)
I'm going to share with you the way I fit a workout into even the tightest of travel schedules. I've done this workout in hotel rooms, outside restaurants and even in airport bathrooms! Get creative - travel is NO excuse to get unhealthy.
I call this workout the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.
50 Jumping Jacks,
30 High Knees,
20 Sit Ups and
10 Push Ups.
Repeat it 3 times. In less then 10 minutes you've gotten your heart rate up and exercises the major muscle groups of your body: quads, glutes, abs, pecs, and triceps (just to name a few.)
See, I told you that was easy. Try it for 14 days, you’ll be amazed at how you feel!
If there's a gym available in your Hotel, Stability Ball Exercises are also a great complement to any core strengthening routine.
