Exercise: Don't Leave Home Without It!

Going on vacation?  Traveling for work?  A quest away from home doesn't mean an end to your workouts.  In fact, exercising in a new environment can help break the monotony of your routine.  Then, upon returning home you can approach your old routine with a renewed spirit.  Here are 10 tips to maintain fitness while on the road.

1.  Pack portable exercise equipment such as a jump rope, resistance bands and/or tubing, exercise DVDs, or videos to use in your hotel room
2.  Download audio workouts onto your MP3 player
3.  Look for a fitness center near the airport to exercise during lay overs
4.  Walk up and down airport stairs while waiting for your flight
5.  Book a room at a hotel with an exercise facility or swimming pool
6.  Find a park, mall or downtown near the hotel for walks
7.  Look for a fitness club that offers one day passes for non-members near the hotel
8.  Check with your local fitness club to see if they offer reciprocal memberships for facilities in other states
9.  Perform calisthenics (e.g. sit-ups, push-ups, leg lifts, arm circles, etc.) and stretching exercises in hotel room
