Work Out Your Workout: 5 Tips for Keeping Fit from Anywhere

By Shannon Glover


Remember those fitness resolutions you made just a couple of months ago? There’s no need to give up on them just because you have to hit the road. In fact, working out at your hotel is no sweat with these five tips perfect for you and your attendees.

1. Queue your DVDs. Many of your favorite workout programs are available on portable discs, such as Beachbody and P90X, even fitness shows like the “Biggest Loser” have some. Just make sure to also bring your computer or portable player to watch and participate from the comfort of your guest room.
2. Get video and trainers on demand. One of the bigger trends lately is Video On Demand fitness programs. A website like allows you to sign up for a simple fee and access a myriad of workouts for 30-, 60- or 90-day plans based on your goals and abilities. Or, if you have a personal trainer you work with already, ask them if they can do 1-on-1 coaching online while you’re gone.
3. Be with the bands. If you are into resistance training, bring your cords and bands with you. They take up barely any space in your suitcase and can be attached to doors and doorknobs for in-room sessions. Some moves to try: bicep curls and hammer pulls to work your arms and leg raises and monster walks for your lower half.
4. Find your hotel gym. Research your hotel ahead of time; if the property has a gym, you might as well take advantage. Head to a free website like, build a program and print worksheets that you can take with you to the fitness center. For any program, plan at least 30 minutes of activity.
5. Eat healthy, too. You don’t have to sacrifice your healthy eating when you travel, either. Stay in touch with your event organizer and ask them for customized menus that help you stay on track with your nutrition. Ask them to modify for special dietary requirements like Paleo-style or gluten-free meals and to portion size appropriately. They will be more than willing to help you.
