All you need to do is get off your butt

You’ve worked hard for those abs, so don’t give up on them now. No mat­ter where you are, work­ing out on the go can be doable, ef­fec­tive and – dare we say? – fun. Whether you’re head­ing to a de­serted beach in Mozam­bique or an Airbnb in Cape Town, this do-any­where plan will en­sure you hang onto those gains. “When I’m trav­el­ling, I usu­ally don’t want to go to the gym for an hour ev­ery day,” says per­sonal trainer Nick Tum­minello, who spends half his time on the road and in air­ports. “And I hear the same thing from my clients.” To stay fit away from home, Tum­minello pre­scribes quick body-weight work­outs for his gold-sta­tus fre­quent fliers, al­low­ing them to get a lot done in a short amount of time. This strat­egy helps them main­tain con­sis­tency, sure, but it also helps them en­joy their time on the road even more, whether they’re trav­el­ling for work or for plea­sure. A sin­gle bout of ex­er­cise can im­me­di­ately boost mood and en­ergy, while re­duc­ing anx­i­ety and tired­ness, ac­cord­ing to re­cent re­search. We teamed up with Tum­minello to stream­line your sweat ses­sions this sum­mer, cre­at­ing our most pack­able, per­son­alised plan ever. First, you’ll get the eight best moves for strength­en­ing the body’s main mus­cle groups sans equip­ment – a care­fully cu­rated bunch de­signed to be ver­sa­tile and ideal for even the tight­est of spa­ces.

If only ev­ery­thing in your hand lug­gage could be so com­pact!
