Do you have any exercise tips for while you’re traveling? My travel schedule can be chaotic!

Youtube has a lot of hotel room workouts that will not wake up your neighbors. I have tried travel yoga and low impact workouts

Becky T.
It's not exactly a set of classic fitness exercises, more like a mix of movement and mindfulness. I find that it calms my nerves down while at the same time putting me in touch with my body with gentle and deliberate stretching. The reference video is called "Ten Mindful Movements – Thich Nhat Hahn" and you can find it easily enough. I hope you enjoy it!

I really like yoga with Adrienne, all you need is yourself and a way to play her videos. If you're away from data connection, her app (monthly fee) allows you to download for offline viewing.

The other option I live is bodyweight fitness. There's an app called Progressive Workouts that runs you through the Reddit /r/bodyweightfitness recommended routine and helps you build up your skills. Most exercises require no equipment, although a set of rings is used for a couple and workout bands help you build your pull-up practice.

There are also lots of prison workouts that require no equipment and can be done in a small space (no prison required!)

Use the gym if staying at a hotel or find a good 5-10 minute workout on your phone and do it before going to bed or when you wake up.

Erik Q.
Just use the stairs instead of elevator. Maybe your routine will not be the same as usual, but you could continue to exercise everyday

I pack resistance bands, and use Fitify Resistance Band workout, this way I have something consistent regardless where I am. The bands travel easy and the app allows me to do a quick 5 minute workout, or more.

I'll try and block time in the morning, as it's easier for me to be consistent. If I'm stressed after a long day, will often do another quick workout to help reduce the adrenaline and cortiol built up by stress.

Squats
Pushups
Jumping jacks
Standing knee kicks
Do these in variations and in sequences. Change it up a bit while also maintaining some level of structure to it.
Be consistent.
Keep track of progress.

Set some time aside to take a walk or rent a bicycle in the place you have travelled to! This way, you will get to exercise and experience a new place at the same time.

Walther X.
Walk as much as possible and look up “hotel room workouts”- these are typically equipment free workouts you can do from anywhere. You can also easily pack a resistance band.

Nada W.
Stay away from the all-or-nothing mentality. What is most important is not to break the habit, so if you only have 5 to 10 minutes for a short routine (a few crunches, dancing around in your hotel room, light stretches, etc.) make the best out of them! If you don't break the habit then you'll get to do your regular routine back at home.

Alexander N.
I don't travel often. But if I did I would take my TRX straps and do my morning exercise in the nature, there’s always nature around, even in the most unthinkable places.

Vladimiro C.
I like to use you tube on my phone to do yoga! There are many different kinds of yoga, something to fit everyone.

You can find videos of all lengths and it can be done almost anywhere.

Jared E.
Do something quick in your hotel room right before you shower for the day. It’s really hard to commit to a full fledged exercise routine when traveling, but in my opinion, getting exercise in in little 5-10 minute bursts is better than neglecting it entirely

Mustafa E.
Walk as much as you can – that’s the best way to see new places and get healthy excercise.

With even very busy schedule you can always hop off bus or subway one stop earlier.

Elizabeth W.
YouTube and Apps! Fitness Marshall is a dance routine that gets me sweating and happy! Also popsugar is pretty awesome! Make the time for it! This is your body

Rose Q.
Try just going for a short run or doing a 10 min workout session or yoga in your room right when you wake up or at night before you take a shower and go to bed

Vicky U.
If you are staying in hotels, take advantage of their exercise facilities. Build a fun playlist of energizing music ahead of time or download an audio book and at least go for a walk or easy jog before your day starts each moment. Choose healthier options, like taking the stairs, parking a block away, or walking during breaks.

If you have a set of exercises that use your own bodyweight as resistance, then you can do those without needing a gym, so you're not relying on finding a gym whenever you travel. I'm guessing you're traveling often enough to do it without a checked in luggage, so you'll at least have your phone with you. You can download one of many apps for workout sessions to be done at home, or look up exercises on YouTube. If you're staying in one place long enough that you get a few hours to yourself, you could look up a local park and head there for a run. If you have a very hectic travel schedule and you don't get a lot of time for exercising, a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) 'program' at something like 15-20 minutes total (plus 10-15 minutes stretching) could be a great idea, but please do not attempt this if you haven't exercised in a few weeks/months. I did that once and it resulted in a nasty cold, so be careful with those.

For when you're home, even if it's just for a few days, there are gyms that offer a sort of "stamp card" where you can use it for, say ten times. Those could be useful for when you travel often and with short notice. You could use it when you're home in-between trips. If you're at home for a longer period, you can get a gym card for a month and use it regularly enough that the cost is worth it and make sure to cancel the payments before whatever date the next payment will be charged.

When traveling I walk around the hotel and do my form of stretch Yoga. It's easy all you need are a pair of shoes and a towel. Put the towel on the floor for your sitting forward bends and any yoga floorwork you want to do.

Kelly Y.
If possible, set aside 10 minutes each day. It doesn't matter what time of day, just be active and do some light exercises. Something that really helps on a busy schedule is doing something like jumping jacks every time you go to the bathroom. Once you get done, do 10-20 (to start) jumping jacks. You'll get some activity, cardio, and boost your energy :).

Malou Y.
Make sure you exercise.

Doesn't matter what it is – you can run just about anywhere and a bit of running gear takes up almost no space. If the weather is too frightful for running, you can do the 7 minute routine in any hotel room.

Diane T.
Yes, I set my alarm for an hour before I have to get ready for the day and aim to get my workout in before my day starts to get busy. That way I know I will get it in. And it puts me in a good mood for the remainder of the day and helps me feel more confident!

Mabel Q.
I usually use Youtube videos and try to do the ones that don’t use any equipment at all (since my normal routine is lifting weights). It actually is a nice change. Try to look at the Fitness Blender channel on youtube or visit their website. They have a lot of great videos to choose from.

Claude Z.
Yes, I have some. I take my time and I exercise almost ten minutes every day, early, at 6 or 7 o'clock. I recommand you Samsung Health, it will help you a lot! And the section "Make me Fabulous" has got exercises, so why don't you try, even when you travel?

Maxime Z.
At home workouts are great for those always on the go because you can do them in the hotel room. Purchase resistance bands for weight while strength training and muscle building.

Valerie Z.
If you’re staying in a hotel, I recommend doing apartment-friendly HIIT workouts. You could do a session here and there, if that fits into your schedule. If you’re sightseeing, you can walk or jog to your destination instead of taking a bus or car. I hope this helps 🙂 !

Everytime you wake up, stretch and drink a glass of water. Your day will start better and you will be ready to visit places without a lack of energy
