5 Fat Loss Travel Workouts You Can Do Anywhere

November 20, 2014

Let’s face it, you are going to have to travel during the holidays and miss your workouts at some point. It happens to all of us! 

However, you can’t let that stop you from sticking to your training plan. 


There are a few things that you need to consider when planning your travel workouts.


1) You are going to pressed for time. 

Even if you are on a family vacation you don’t want to spend all of your time planning or doing your workouts.  So, keep them short and sweet. 


2) You are already stressed from travel.

Travel is stressful and it even in the case of a vacation your body undergoes a lot of stress when traveling. Have you ever noticed how you hold more water when you travel?  I have and it is due to the stress most of the time. 


3) Things aren’t always going to go your way so be prepared to adapt.

You don’t have control of your environment or your schedule many times when you travel so make sure you are flexible with your plans. As Chicago's best personal training program we feel it is our duty to give you some great travel workouts you can do one the road just about anywhere.
