No equipment required and all can be done in minimal space
I am SO excited about today's post!
It’s simple. Traveling and staying in shape doesn’t normally go hand in hand. Vacation is known as a time for relaxing, over-indulging, and treating yourself.
Whether I’m staying in a hotel, traveling from destination to destination, or heading north for a weekend at the cottage – I’ve always struggled to stay on the “work out train." Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you can’t continue to strive for balance and routine.
I bet we all can relate. As soon as we reach our island destination or hit the lake house our daily workouts and healthy eating go right out the window. Because: “Hey, we're on vacation!” or “Hey, it’s summer!” This WAS me – simply because I didn’t want to spend hours on end exercising while I could be wandering the streets in Rome, Italy, or laying on the dock with friends at the cottage. However, over the last couple of years I have come to realize that this doesn’t necessarily need to be the reason – I don’t need to spend hours on end exercising.
So back to why I’m SO excited about this post! I’ve taken my passion for traveling and collaborated with Sami Punzo a personal trainer, Pilates instructor, and owner of Newmarket Functions Studio Inc to create a combination of exercises and workouts that can be done anywhere. So now you really have no excuses!
If you want to make any of the following exercises more difficult you can use weights and/or increase the number of reps
ALL workouts and exercises are to sever as a guide line - if you have trouble or feel pain doing any switch it out for something else
For HIIT interval training I recommend the apps: Tabata Timer, Interval Timer, Seconds Interval Timer HIIT
So grab your runners, a bottle of water and your workout guide - and get going!
Full workout guide below: PDF Format.
Save it to your phone and take it with you where ever you go.
