I’ve been traveling on the east coast this week! You know I’m working out. On this trip, our hotel was a little out of the way from boutique fitness studios, and I relied a lot on the hotel gym and running trails. Here are some of my top tips to consider when planning your travel workouts:
- Many boutique fitness studios only allow you to book one week in advance and when their schedules go live, popular times and instructors book up fast. Check their websites ahead of time and put it in your calendar to log on and book your dates.
- While you are on the websites looking at booking dates, check out the “First Time” specials. I was able to get $20 classes at a few trendy studios that would have been $40 classes.
- Don’t worry about carrying all of your equipment! Both indoor cycling and boxing are hot, hot, hot, and both types of studios have shoes, wraps, and gloves that you can rent or are included in the cost of your class.
- Don’t forget to bring your running shoes. I’ve said it before, but running or jogging or wogging (walk/jog) in a new city is one of the best ways to explore, see things that you wouldn’t see in a car, and learn the lay of the land. Plus, the fresh air will do you good!
- Do I need to remind you that exercising while traveling will help you sleep better and keep your system, you know, regular? It’s a good thing!
