Stay Fit and Healthy on the Road
Finding time to take care of yourself while traveling isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it should not be a priority. Whether you travel regularly for work, or occasionally for leisure, you know how it feels when you let yourself go during travel.
It’s hard enough to prioritize sleep, eating well, and managing the stress of travel plans – it’s no wonder that our strength program commonly takes a back seat. However, it doesn’t have to be complicated or intense to be effective. It also doesn’t require any workout equipment aside from a resistance band to throw in your luggage.
In fact, beating yourself up through your workout physically is something to be avoided while traveling if you aren’t optimizing the above areas of sleep, nutrition, and stress, as it can leave you even more run down and prone to getting sick or injured. Read on how to keep your body, your joints, and your muscles happy and healthy while traveling. You’ll be surprised how a simple routine like the one below can upgrade your physical and mental performance while providing more energy.
6 Banded Strengthening Exercises to Perform While Traveling

This is a simple routine that many of our local and online training clients have followed while traveling. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of these, simple doesn’t mean easy! And remember, the goal is not to beat your body up while traveling, but just to get moving. Repeat through each of the exercises 2-3 times for a nice routine you can perform easily with a band. The bands used in the video can be found here.
