Hol­i­day on the cards? Here’s how to work out away from home

HAVE AN OVER­SEAS AD­VEN­TURE ON THE CARDS? HERE’S HOW TO STAY AC­TIVE WHILE AWAY

It might be daunt­ing that you’re worlds away from your lo­cal tread­mill, but you’d be sur­prised how much ex­er­cise can be done while sight­see­ing if you get cre­ative.

Start by pack­ing ex­er­cise clothes. This sounds straight­for­ward but let’s be hon­est, how many times have you for­got­ten a sports bra and it’s meant you’ve skipped ex­er­cise? Don’t let biki­nis and books take up all the room in your lug­gage – plenty of work­out wear will mean you’re well prepped. After a long flight, your mus­cles will usu­ally be tighter than ever. Make sure you sched­ule in time for a stretch post-flight. Yoga is per­fect for this; think down­ward dog and child’s pose.

Don’t have a fit­ness DVD to bring with you? Some ho­tel chains have you cov­ered. JW Mar­riott ho­tels & re­sorts of­fer video barre work­outs to ev­ery Asia-Pa­cific ho­tel room. They’re also launch­ing a Barre to Bar Brunch pack­age at their Sin­ga­pore South Beach lo­ca­tion, which in­cludes a morn­ing barre work­out fol­lowed by brunch.
