You look down at your calendar and all you can see are super full days. Flying out on Sunday, meetings Monday through Thursday, and of course, there are mandatory team dinners after a full day of work. Or maybe the problem is on the opposite end of the spectrum: you’re going on vacation. Lots of travel, relaxing, and being away from the gym. In either case, you have no idea how you’re going to get your sweat sessions scheduled. That’s why I’ve put together this little free fitness challenge.
As a personal trainer (and frequent traveler), I get it. Life can sometimes get in the way of your fitness goals. There will be times where hitting the gym is impossible, you’re eating out more than you’d like, and you’re too exhausted for a long workout session. But that’s okay! I never want my clients to aim for 100% compliance, instead we build contingency plans to save the day.
And I want you to think of this workout challenge as YOUR contingency plan. So, any time you are traveling, crazy busy, or just plain need a change. Grab these workouts and use them to keep you on track.
So, every workout is completely bodyweight, under thirty minute, AND contains a follow along workout video. Take these workouts absolutely anywhere. Bonus points for posting on instagram and tagging me (@katherineedgecumbe) so I can see you crushing your workouts. I hope you enjoy these workouts and that this challenge helps you stay consistent with your workouts!
Travel fitness challenge: your contingency plan
Day 1: Bodyweight silent workout
Day 2: My favorite bodyweight metabolic conditioning workout
Day 3: Hotel room HIIT
Day 4: Active rest & resistance band work
Day 5: Bodyweight tabatas
Day 6: Ab workout (optional additional weight)
As you can see, I do use a medicine ball for this workout. But please note that it is completely optional. So if you want to increase the challenge, grab a hotel room pillow or anything weighted.
Day 7: Rest
As you know, rest is just as important as getting in your workouts! Use today to give your body some TLC. And, if you’d like to do a little something, do this mobility routine!
So, what’s next?
If you’re looking for more or maybe you want a little more mindset/nutrition coaching in addition to workouts, don’t miss out on my 7 Day Fitness Reboot. This fitness challenge is 100% free and includes daily workouts, nutrition challenges, and tons of motivation. So if that sounds like something that would be fun, I’d love to work with you!
