Whether you are traveling for work or pleasure consistent maintenance is key to living a healthy lifestyle. However, hotel stays don’t always entail the best workout arena and travel tends to leave us with time limitations anyhow. Here is my hotel workout that is quick and suitable for the majority of travel amenities!

The Workout:

1. Overhead walking lunges X 10 reps each side. Depending on your fitness level you can choice to use weights or not. I encourage the effort to at least try a few reps or one set with weights. You can use a medicine ball or dumbbells.

2. Swings X 10 reps each side. If kettle bells are available- great! If not, use a medicine ball with handles or dumbbells.

3. Reverse cable rows X 12 reps

4. Upright Rows X 12.

Repeat these four exercises back to back for three rounds with minimal to no rest between. After rounds are complete begin next circuit with one-minute rest between.

1. Lunges with Russian Twist 10 reps each side. Use the modifications as the overhead-walking lung.

2. Burpees X 20. The burpee is a great exercise to boost your endurance. It is very challenging on its own but you can incorporate dumbbells or a handled medicine ball if it’s available.
