“On the road” doesn’t have to mean “off the wagon.” The fol­low­ing three fat-burn­ing workouts can be done any­where, any­time, with lit­tle to no equip­ment.

Work­ing out while trav­el­ing can be daunt­ing. Sure, some ho­tels have beau­ti­ful gyms, but oth­ers of­fer noth­ing more than a cou­ple of sad ma­chines hun­ker­ing in a dark base­ment room the size of your carry-on suit­case.

We have a much cheerier al­ter­na­tive.

Cari Shoe­mate, the co-cre­ator of Bomb­shell Boot­camp in Hous­ton, crafted three Oxy­gen-ex­clu­sive in­ter­val pro­grams that in­cor­po­rate strength work, car­dio and ply­o­met­ric moves to help you burn fat on the fly. “In­ter­val train­ing is re­ally the best for fat burn­ing, but there are other ways to chal­lenge your mus­cles and get your heart rate up,” Shoe­mate says, not­ing that com­pound ex­er­cises — those that work mul­ti­ple mus­cles — save time and ex­pend more en­ergy.

Th­ese workouts meet any goal or time con­straint, use min­i­mal equip­ment and can be done al­most any­where, from the quiet of your ho­tel room to the fresh green of a park. They are the per­fect travel com­pan­ions to keep you pool ready while on va­cay — and will in­cin­er­ate any deca­dent treats you might en­counter along the way.
