It can be daunting to keep up with workouts while traveling. You have worked hard for your gains. You don’t want it all wasted due to a change in routine, lack of fitness equipment or a different environment. The following are a few suggestions to keep workouts in your travel plans.

If staying at a hotel make sure to take advantage of their fitness center or pool. The equipment might be different than what you usually use but some creativity can make it work. Use this as an opportunity to try different equipment. At your gym the free weights are always crowded but they might be fully accessible in the hotel gym. You generally use the treadmill but on this trip you could try out the elliptical or stair stepper for a change.

If you don’t have access to a gym while traveling you can take your workout outdoors. Hiking, running, walking or cycling the new environment is a fun way to sightsee. Always make sure to be aware of your surroundings in new places. You can look for local races on race finder websites.

You can also use body weight exercises or packable fitness equipment if omitting the gym. Resistance bands are lightweight and take up hardly any room in a suitcase.

Remember that you are on a trip and have realistic expectations of yourself. Be proud of yourself for putting forth the effort to keep up with your health and fitness goals when away from home.

Bali Body is an Australian based company who makes tanning oils and skin care products that are free of parabens and harsh chemicals. They are plant-derived, seed based oils full of vitamin E, rose hip oil and jojoba and much more! I love that their products are vegan and cruelty-free!
I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
