Top 5 On-the-Go Holiday Workouts

Working out on-the-go is popular for one main reason: it is a timesaver. The pace of life gets more frantic during the busy holidays.  Stay active as much as possible and you will feel better and improve your health and energy levels.

And, just because you're crazy-busy during the holidays, it does not protect you from being stressed-out, overweight and out-of-shape! You gotta get the workouts in on a regular basis.

Keep your exercise equipment with you. Pack up your gym bag, dumbbells, medicine ball, swiss ball--be ready to "exercise on-the-go."

Here are my Top 5 On-the-Go Fat-Burning Holiday Workouts:

1. Keep your walking/running shoes with you. Walk as much as possible during the day. This will keep your fat-burning enzymes active all day. After work, do a quick 20-minute interval cardio workout. Just find a school ground nearby and get after it.

2. Take advantage of dead time and get in your workout.  You could get in a good 20-minute bodyweight workout at some point during the day.

3. Take advantage of running trails in your neighborhood. These trails usually have exercise stations so you can mix in pushups, pullups, inverted rows, lunges, step ups, squats, etc. between running intervals. This is one of the best fat-burning workouts.

4. If you're traveling overnight, do this bodyweight workout in your hotel room or workout in the hotel gym.

5. Do an old-fashioned home workout before or after work. It takes away the excuse of "I don't have time to go to the gym."

The truth is that you have plenty of time during the day to get in your workouts! Just commit to do it.

    1. Thanks Akshit! keep the workouts going!

  2. Thanks for this reminder that we can all stay fit, even at busy times of year (who doesn't have 20 minutes?!?). Another reminder, too, why bodyweight is great - no special equipment to lug thru airports.

    1. That's right Patricia...there are no real excuses for not exercising...don't need a health club either
