Remember last summer when I blogged about my vacation in Costa Rica? Well before the trip, I wasn’t sure if the hotel I was staying in would have a gym or not. What’s a girl to do? 😮 Bring her workout DVDs with her of course! I was pushing through Pure Cardio in my hotel room and dying! loving the burn!
Then last week in NYC, I attended a launch party for Lacey Stone’s new mobile fitness app “Extreme Bootcamp with Lacey Stone”! I felt like I’d found another great outlet to working out while away from home: my iPhone! At the launch party, Lacey took the group through the workout they could expect from the app- planks, push-ups, tricep dips, tuck jumps- you name it! It was a pretty exhausting workout, but it was great to know that it was a workout you could have in your pocket! Check out more on Lacey’s app by clicking here.
In case you’re planning a trip to escape the winter, here are my three quick tips for working out on the go:
1. Check to see if your hotel will have a gym/workout space available. Be sure to check the hours for the gym/workout space to make sure you can fit them into your work/vacay schedule.
2. Bring your workout DVDs and/or fitness apps with you! Just like you bring a good book with you for the beach, be sure to bring your workout DVDs and fitness apps along for the trip!
3. No gym, DVDs or apps? Get back to basics! If you’re in a bind where you can’t do your workout of choice on the go, you can always get back to basics and go for a quick run, or find a simple workout routine that you can do in your hotel room when you wake up in the morning. The key is to get your heart rate up and to push your muscles to fatigue.
