Holiday Travel Fitness

Posted Dec 14 2009 11:23am

Traveling for the Holidays this year? If you’re like most people, you find that your workout routine gets thrown out of whack during the Holiday season. With some planning, you can stay on track with your fitness routine, and not feel so overwhelmed come January 1st.

Don’t have much time to workout? Keep it short. Here are a few ideas to keep you fit in a minimal amount of time.

Workout at Home- Choose three exercises for the Upper Body, Legs, and Abdominals that don’t utilize equipment. If you’ve been working with an In-Home Personal Trainer, this should be a piece of cake. These exercises could include lunges, squats, push-ups, tricep dips, and pilates abdominal work. Do two sets of ten to twelve repetitions to keep the workout quick yet effective.

Involve the Family- Lets face it, it’s not fun to workout alone so get the whole family involved. Show them some of the new moves that your Personal Trainer has been teaching you.

Tune in- One of my favorite travel workouts includes the TV…Exercise TV! These channels are free on most cable plans and are also offered in hotels now too! Choose a 30 minute fat blast or aerobic workout to keep it short and sweet.  You can also check out YouTube or do a simple workout like my Ballet Legs Workout.

Head Outdoors- Whether you are shoveling snow or sand, this is a great way to sweat out some extra holiday calories while increasing core strength.

Lastly, enjoy your Holiday travel. Don’t let obsessing about getting your workouts in distract you from your family and friends.

Happy Holidays!
