The life of a traveling businessperson is never easy and not exactly something that’s really conducive to creating a world-class fitness routine that you are going to be able to stick with daily. Thankfully though, it’s a lot easier to stay fit while you travel for work today than it’s ever been before – and you don’t even have to buy into all of those fitness gizmos and gadgets they sell during the early morning infomercials either! Take advantage of these tips and tricks to help you stay fit while you travel for work and you won’t have to worry about slipping out of shape because of your hectic schedule.
Fall in love with bodyweight focused movements
Your body is the ultimate gym, and you are going to want to fall in love with everything that bodyweight focused movements and exercises have to offer. Push-ups, pull-ups, crunches, air squats, “the invisible chair”, and a handful of other bodyweight exercises can all be strung together to create a routine completely custom to the results you are looking for – all without you ever having to lift a single piece of iron.
Don’t forget about yoga
Yoga used to be considered a “pseudo-exercise” program designed for young mothers and hippies, but today most people have come around to really appreciating all of the different serious and significant health and fitness benefits that yoga has to offer. There are all kinds of different yoga styles you can practice, but all of them are going to help you get that blood flowing, stretch out those muscles and enjoy the kind of flexibility that most people would love but never get the chance to leverage.
Let your feet lead the way
Running and jogging (or even walking and hiking) requires absolutely nothing whatsoever but a good pair of shoes and a little bit of time, and it happens to be one of the best ways to stay physically fit. You’ll be able to mix up your running and walking to create fat burning exercises, stamina building exercises, and speed/endurance – all without having to purchase anything whatsoever. Most of all, you’ll be able to throw down these kinds of workouts anywhere and everywhere you like!
Grab a set of resistance bands and pack a mini-gym without any effort at all
If you really want to take your fitness to another level while you are traveling for work you’ll want to consider getting your hands on a set of quality resistance bands. Though not exactly capable of producing the same results than traditional iron can, it’s better than nothing – and can add a lot of extra resistance to your workouts that your body weight alone couldn’t.
If you prepare before travelling, you’ll be able to stay on top of your health and fitness without any stress! While you’re at it, check out our light weight compression tights that can be easily packed away too! :)
