How To Stay Fit In A Hotel

You don't have to abandon your exercise routine while traveling. With a little bit of imagination and motivation, you can get a great workout in your hotel, even if your hotel doesn't have an exercise facility. Here are a few easy and efficient exercise routines that you can make a part of your travels. Exercising while traveling can also help with travel fatigue and increase your energy.

Staying Fit In A Hotel

Here are a number of ways you can exercise at your hotel.

The fitness room

The fitness room is one of the best ways to exercise in a hotel.

The pool

Take advantage of the hotel pool. Do some laps, leg lunges or jog in place. Swimming is a nice alternative to your land bound exercise routine.

The stairs

Take the hotel stairs instead of the elevator. If you are staying on the top floors, take the elevator half way done and then walk the stairs the rest of the way. For a more intense workout, skip every other step going up or run up and down steps. Running up and down the step will give you a good cardiovascular workout and help to strengthen your legs.

The Hotel Grounds

If the hotel doesn't have an exercise room, pool or stairs, you can exercise by walking the hotel grounds. Walking the grounds of the hotel is a great way to enjoy the scenery and exercise at the same time. For a more intense workout, stop a few times during your walk and do a few pushups, jumping jacks or leg lunges.

The Hotel Room

Bring your own exercise equipment and you can work out right in your hotel room. Bring small travel size equipment that is convenient for packing in a suitcase, such as a jump rope, hand and leg weights, and resistance bands. If you don't have travel size equipment, you can still get a good workout by doing push-ups and sit-ups, and jogging in place.Yoga is another great exercise that you can do in your hotel room. Pop in a yoga CD and use a hotel towel if you don't have your yoga mat with you.
