Hotel room workouts

Hotel room workouts.

 

A lot of our personal training clients are business people who travel a lot.

Such clients often ask for advice on how to stay in shape whilst away on business.

If you are staying in a hotel without a gym, then performing 1 or 2 short hotel room workouts will help by allowing you to maintain your fitness or weight loss gains.

Short workouts will  keep your muscles and cardiovascular system in good condition to resume your tougher personal training workouts, without too many aches and pains, once you return home!

Hotel room workouts can also be a great way to reduce stress levels after tricky business meetings or negotiations.

 

These body weight workouts only take 15-20 minutes and don’t require any outside equipment.

They also don’t involve a lot of jumping about, so can be performed without you disturbing other guests or getting reported to hotel management!

Mobilise the joints before starting your workout, and spend a few minutes stretching the main muscle groups (particularly hamstrings, thighs and lower back) afterwards.

Here’s one beginners workout and one intermediate workout for you to get started with:

 

Beginners hotel workout.

 

12 squats, followed by 12 alternating lunges.

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

Then 12 back raises, followed by 12 press ups (or box press ups).

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

Then 12 alternating planks, followed by 12 crunches (hook your feet under the bed).

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

 

Intermediate hotel workout.

 

10 squats, followed by 10 left leg lunges, followed by 10 right leg lunges, followed by another 10 squats.

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

Then 10 walkouts, followed by 10 press ups, followed by 10 back raises, followed by another 10 press ups.

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

Then 20 tricep dips (use a chair) followed by 20 calf raises.

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

Then 10 alternating planks, followed by 20 crunches, followed by another 10 alternating planks.

Repeat 4 times, resting for 30 seconds between each round.

 

Good luck and happy training on your next business trip!
