Fitness tip of the week: Exercising while traveling

June 17, 2013 at 8:38 am

Check your bags. Not your goals. Traveling these days will definitely get your heart rate up, but not in a good way. Take your gym clothes on your next trip and take advantage of hotel gyms and swimming pools. The equipment might not be state of the art, but there’s never a shortage of towels. Hotel with no gym? Try push-ups and lunges in your room.
