FITNESS: STAYING BABELY ON THE GO
A body in motion will stay in motion, a body at rest will stay at rest. Once you adopt a workout regiment, it’s easy to stay motivated. Once you stop, it’s easy to stay still and put that run off for another day. Traveling can put a dent in your workout routine and stop your hard earned progress. Just because you’re on the road doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your workouts. Here are a few great ways to stay fit on the road.
Nike Training Club App
Whether you’re using the app for your phone, or attending a local Nike Training Club class, you’re guaranteed to get an amazing workout. To sweeten the deal, it’s completely free.
If you’re heading to a big city like Los Angeles or San Francisco, look into the class times. If you’re in a remote area, or don’t have time to join a class, download the free Nike Training Club app.
One of the least utilized resources in travel. Every time I’ve been to a hotel gym, it has been completely empty. If you’re intimidated by people watching you do dead lifts, take advantage of the fact most people avoid the gym while on vacation. It’ll likely be the quietest workout you’ve ever experienced, and since it’s not frequently used, it’ll smell better than your local gym.
Who doesn’t love a good old fashioned run? In addition to clearing your head, it’ll be a great way to get to know the area while burning calories. Download the Nike Running app to map where you ran, as well as keep track of time and distance. Avoid running at night for your first run, just to be safe.
If you’re taking an extended trip, you might want to check out local deal sites like Groupon, Living Social, and Amazon Deals. You’ll find cheap gym memberships, deep discounts on group classes, and the occasional trainer for a bargain basement price. Since most of these deals are only valid once, you won’t need to worry about renewals. If you like the workout, you ]. can look into similar classes when you get back home. $30 for unlimited yoga? That’s cheaper than a night out and while you might be sore the next morning, it’ll hurt way less than a hangover.
The internet is always a great resource for quick and easy workouts. Netflix has a great selection of fitness videos to kick start your road trip workout. If you’re looking for something more specific, head to YouTube. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise. The hardest part will be fighting the urge to learn to braid your hair after your workout.
