There is some days when hotel gyms just don’t cut it – too small, you have woken at some crazy timezone and the gym isn’t open, too many people in there using all the equipment, or you just physically don’t want to go to the Gym…Ive had these days, and I can tell you since starting to fly for a job a year ago I have not kept to any particular routine.
With a mix of jetlag, excitement to see the cities I am in and not wanting those creepy people staring at you whilst you train in a confined space, so I am starting to create Hotel Room Workouts that I can feel the burn and truly do work.
And the plus side of this is that you feel great afterwards, and can do these at any time of the day/night.
I will update future versions so you never get bored too.
<3 Feel that burn and let me know how it goes!!
