Traveling can sometimes put a wrench in the system of a healthy lifestyle. Not only does your hourly routine change, but the possible resources available to you are different and often times unknown. Whether you’re someone who travels often for a living or planning to travel during the holidays, this quick workout will get your body moving.
One of the most promising ways to keep active while traveling is to develop the habit of a hotel routine. Hotel gyms are an option, but not always guaranteed. One thing that is guaranteed, is that you will have access to a wall, a floor, and your body. Combining your hotel check-in, evening, or morning routine with a quick movement routine is a great way to keep those joint mobile and strong.
