Hotel Room Workout
Keep it simple but stay fit with this basic hotel room workout plan! It’s easy to slack off on your fitness routine when you’re away from home. But it’s during these disturbances that making the effort really counts and helps you to make fitness a lifestyle. So, use these bodyweight exercises to rock a fast hotel workout before you’re out and about for the day!
In my coaching experience, I find there’s two kinds of travel people” those who completely blow off working out while traveling and those who make fitness a priority- even if the workouts are different than their norm.
Personally, I’ve been in both of these boats! In my early workout days, the thought of hitting the gym while I was boozing it up was laughable. Now-a-days I actually enjoy working out and thus I keep it part of my routine- even while traveling.
Why You Should Do Hotel Room Workouts
- Stay consistent to your goals
- Get your blood flowing
- Feel good
- Because your body loves to move
Yes, the calorie burn when you’re indulging is always nice- but not priority. You should rock hotel rom workouts because our body was made to move, and movement feels good!
This doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice time our of your vacation to hit the gym- hardly!
Use bodyweight (or travel with resistance bands which is my preference!) and rock a speedy but awesome workout right there in the hotel room
One of the things I actually love about working out while traveling is that my workouts are more sporadic, less planned and have an aspect of fun to them.
Step out of your routine and focus on enjoyment
Focus On Time
The biggest obstacle when it comes to travel workouts is not wanting to take time out of your vacation (or not having much time at all if you’re working). Which is why I always advice hotel room workouts to be quick.
It’s not fun for you or your family to wait up for an hour so you can do a workout. Keep it simple and keep it fast.
If there’s kids- get them involved (here’s why I work out with my kids)! Regardless, make it a speedy affair to get your work out in.
If you’re going to workout while traveling, anything is better than nothing. Seriously, you’re already staying kicking ass by staying consistent so pat yourself on the back!
But I’ll always advise to work out a few times in the week, not just once. Remember, your body like to move- so let it!Never forget that your body like to move- so let it! #makefitnessfun #fitnesslife #fitnesslifestyle #moveyourbody Click To Tweet
Personally, I travel with resistance bands (why everyone should own resistance bands) because they give you the best band for your buck.
They allow you to train your posterior muscles which can be tricky with bodyweight only training and they don’t take up much room.
I grab my bands from prosourcefit.com and you can use code mamabear15 to save some money. But bands aren’t always necessary- just preferred. The workout below is 100% bodyweight exercise based and it takes less than fifteen minutes.
