No Gym, No Problem (No, Really)
HOTEL GYM FOR WHAT? YOUR HOLIDAY BODYWEIGHT PLAN IS READY TO FLY!
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.
