staying strong while traveling

Wow! I just got back from a whirlwind trip to New England.

It was a great trip but training options were very limited.

No barbells

No kettlebells

No mace & clubs

So what can you do?

Most hotels have some sort of fitness center.

Sometimes they just have a machine and a treadmill.

Other times they have some dumbbells.

Some have swimming pools.

They all have stairs.

Do a good recon and see what’s available.

Use whatever is there.

Remember you always have bodyweight exercises.

When you are at a rest area you have tree branches for pullups and picnic tables for dips

and stepups.

I’ve even used newspaper stands for dips.

Get creative with basic exercises.

Like our friend and fellow coach, Christine Rosi says, “No gym required.”

No excuses!
