With the holiday season usually comes some sort of travel. Whether it’s a weekend getaway to the next town over or a two-week adventure, your normal routine can get completely thrown out the window.
If you typically work out in a gym, you may be somewhere without access to any equipment. If running is your thing, you may no longer have a familiar path to follow. If you usually prepare your own meals, now you probably don’t have a kitchen or a fridge. And the worst part of traveling can be how sleep patterns get completely thrown off.
We are all creatures of habit, and in our real life it is pretty simple to stick to a healthy routine. However, when we start traveling, absolutely nothing is familiar and the slightest bump can be enough to have you throw your hands in the air and say “screw it!”
With New Year’s resolutions in the making, motivation should be pretty strong to stick to your fitness routine while traveling. What to do is always the big question mark. Lucky for you, I just discovered the 12 minute athlete. I am completely obsessed with the free eBook you can download from her web-site with 12 and 18 minute workouts. The entire book is a high intensity interval training program with insane workouts that you can do ANYWHRE! She even has an app (that I just bought and am using daily) so it is easily accessible on your phone or tablet!
This morning I banged out an 18-minute workout on my hotel balcony while my kids were vegging out. I seriously can not rave enough about this ingenious app! The 12 minute athlete has truly created something EVERYONE can use, no matter what your fitness level. She even has modifications and You Tube videos linked to every movement.
Don’t let holiday travel keep you from getting in a great workout. Adding HIIT workouts to your fitness routine could be just what you need to get the results you want.
Live Fitt!…Be Fitt!!
