Keeping up with your workout routine can be one of the hardest things about being on the road. You're hundreds of miles from your home gym, and whether you're on vacation or traveling for work, you are busy. Sometimes finding 30 minutes to get your muscles working can slip down the list of priorities in a hurry, but it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, it's never been easier to work out while traveling.

The American Hotel & Lodging Association found that 84 percent of hotels offer fitness facilities, while new apps, classes, and workouts mean a great session is never more than seconds away. We’ve gathered the best advice so you won’t have any more excuses!

Pack Smart Think light and versatile. You don't want to overload your luggage with weights, so try to leave as much space as possible for other items. Try packing a jump rope or a set of resistance bands. Either of these items offers plenty of options for a quick workout, and you don't need much space to use them. If your hotel doesn't have a gym, find an empty conference room and jump to your heart's content.

Tip
Exercise after flying has a positive effect on your circadian rhythms, core temperature, and heart rate—perfect to help stave off the effects of jet lag.

Into the Wild Don't want to work out in the hotel? That's fine. Why not turn regular tourist activities into exercises? Rent a bike and pedal around to see the city or hit the local mountain biking trail. Try sightseeing on the open water using a standup paddleboard. Maybe there's a local specialty like Muay Thai or tango that will get the blood flowing. If you're in a city, try jogging from attraction to attraction. You’ll get your heart beating and see more, too.

The Body Weight Workout Many experts say that the best workout is one where you lift your own weight. So even if there's no gym where you're staying, you can still get in an excellent session. Next time you're on the road, try these two body-weight-only workouts for any level!
