Imagine get fit before, after and WHILE you travel – That is the beauty, ease and convenience of the SpinGym.
No matter what kind of trip you’re taking, there’s one thing is certain:
Our normal routines get thrown out the window when traveling- yes??
• If you work out in a gym, suddenly you might not have access to any equipment.
• If you run around your neighborhood, suddenly you no longer have a familiar path to follow.
• If you usually prepare your own meals, suddenly you don’t have a kitchen or fridge.
• If you’re used to a good night’s sleep, suddenly you’re sleeping at odd hours in different time zones.
Your exercise needs to become your constant while traveling – make a commitment to yourself that you will find at least one hour every other day to exercise – NO EXCUSES. Add it to your calendar, set up an email reminder, do whatever it takes, but don’t take no for an answer. You might need to wake up early one day to fit it in. You might need to exercise at 11PM at night on another day.
Go on a hike around the Terminal!
Flight delayed? Take a brisk walk around the airport if you arrive early and don’t forget to Stretch post-flight.
After a long trip, your muscles tend to be tighter than ever. When you get to your gate, ward off lower-back soreness with a forward fold: Bend at the hips and fall forward, hugging your knees and rocking side to side. And once you’re at your destination, help your body and mind reset with my 2 two favorite yoga poses: downward dog and child’s pose. And of course you can always stretch with your SpinGym.
Pack the right tools
Obviously you can skip the dumbbells, but there’s plenty of light equipment you can bring with you. One option is a jump rope, great for amping up cardo. Other feather-light options to toss in your bag is your SpinGym – portable, affordable and very packable — perfect for working out ON the plane…
Scope out the fitness scene
Remember how 86 percent of people will be away between Thanksgiving and the New Year? Yeah, use that to your advantage. Check out deals on fitness classes or just call around to a few studios and see if they’re offering any one-time deals for first timers. Gyms are pretty much abandoned during these weeks, so your chances of finding something new and cheap are way higher.
You won’t feel guilty about skipping a workout and you’ll get to try a new class – chances are you’ll want to get out of the house or hotel anyway!”
