Most hotels have gyms available to guests and most gyms have treadmills and ellipticals. If you’re looking for a no-fuss workout, bring some running shoes and go for a run. You can choose to run indoors and increase the incline to get a better workout. Or if you’re in a hilly city like San Francisco, head outside and use the natural landscape to your advantage!
back to the basics
Pushups, situps, and jumping jacks might bring back nightmares from your high school years, but these simple yet effective workouts provide both isometric training and cardio. Throw in some yoga moves, such as downward doggy and side plank, to further strengthen your core.
Resistance Bands are great and fit your bags
Resistance bands are a lightweight, and easy to travel with, option. Use bands for squats, hip thrusts, burpees, and leg lifts to increase resistance. These exercises can be done on the floor of your hotel room, no gym needed! Full-body workouts are available online.
Yoga keeps you calm
Put on some spa music and get into your yoga poses. You won’t even need a mat if you have a carpeted hotel room! Not only will yoga help to keep you in shape, but it’ll also help relieve some stress after a difficult day at work. Plus, yoga can help with jet lag if you’re having trouble falling asleep.
Ride a bike
Thanks to Citi Bike and other companies, you can access a bike almost anywhere in the US. If you’re traveling internationally, many countries have their own pay-per-use bike service. For less than $5, you can do some sightseeing (or get to the office/conference) and get your exercise for the day! If your hotel has a gym, you can also jump on a stationary bike. Some hotels will give you free passes to local gyms where you can take a cycling class.
