If work keeps you frequently away from home, it can be challenging to maintain your fitness program. Travel time and meetings might leave little room in your schedule for exercise. But dedication and planning can help you stay in shape — and ease the stress that work travel can cause. Consider these travel workout tips.
Pack for fitness
Before your trip, research the hotel or nearby fitness facilities and pack accordingly. Your travel workout essentials might include:
· Athletic shoes
· Exercise clothing
· Resistance tubing
· Hand grips
· Yoga mat
When you arrive at your destination, set the tone for your trip by working out right away. If that's not possible, schedule time for your next workout and treat it as an important appointment.
Listen to your body
If jet lag or schedule changes leave you exhausted, make your workout shorter or lighter than usual. It's OK to take it easy once in a while. Because travel can be so disruptive to how you sleep and what you eat, it's also not the best time to try to increase your fitness level.
Remember, however, that regular exercise can help reduce stress and feelings of low energy, which might be just what you need to get down to business.
