How To Get A Workout While On Vacation

You won’t even need to leave your hotel room


Yes, a holiday is official rest time and for most of us, exercise is probably the last thing on our minds. What’s more, even if the hotel has a gym, you might not have luggage space for your sports gear.

But hey, guess what, everything you need can be found right in your hotel room so there’s no reason to put your fitness on hold. To help you get going, here are three great routines that you can easily accomplish in that 20-square metre space.

Here’s another tip: These are easy workouts to do back home in your bedroom too, on days when dragging yourself to the gym is simply too much to bear.

1. The 20-Minute Hotel Room Workout

This routine will give your muscles quite a thorough workout via a series of burpees, planks, lifts and squats. Not too difficult to accomplish and all you need is a chair and your backpack.

2. The Supermodel Workout

Want a taut bod like Russian supermodel Irina Shayk’s? Try her in-room body-sculpting moves which she devised to fit in with her jet-setting lifestyle. Equipment needed: A towel and a pillow.

3. Yoga for people who live out of airplanes and hotel rooms

Just the thing to stretch and ease those cramped-up limbs from a long-haul economy flight, yoga is the ideal workout to do in a hotel room. You might need to pack a travel yoga mat, but besides that, there’s nothing else you really need except some floor space.
