Despite the three trips to Seattle for work this year, my job doesn’t actually require much travel. I do love to travel though and as such, I embrace every opportunity that may come my way to do so. With that said, when I do travel, whether it be for personal or business purposes, I find it important to keep certain aspects of my life and routine in tact, at least where possible. This usually includes consistent bed and wake up times, eating mostly healthy foods (I will splurge to try a local favorite if it fits within the constraints of my food allergies), and especially important for me, staying active.
Now, my workouts may not look the same while I’m away, but I find the consistency helps make the transition back to my normal schedule easier, and since fitness is a huge therapeutic escape for me, it helps me stay sane and grounded. Even while in Seattle the other week, I got up a few mornings for a short run around the city before work and then walked the 30 minutes to and from the office each day.
With all that said and out of the way, I have pulled together 6 travel-friendly workouts (including some from my fellow bloggers) that require little to no equipment, and can be done in your hotel room, a hotel fitness center, or even at a nearby park, weather permitting.
