Being away from home is no excuse to not work hard. In fact, to see results in fitness, you HAVE to step out of your comfort zone! And there’s no better test of your strength and willpower than finding ways to exercise while traveling. Get ready to get stepping, because my hotel workout guide is no walk through Central Park.
Your gear is packed and on its way to your destination race. You have pre- and post-race food prepped and put in a cool, dry place. And you have healthy snacks on hand for the long road ahead. But aren’t you forgetting something?
When you’re traveling — especially in your car — it can be nearly impossible to drive past those drive-thru restaurants. I get it. They’re quick, easy and offer something for everyone. But the over-valued luxury of not getting out of your car is not worth sacrificing your long-term health and well-being. Put the brakes on our fast-food nation and let me steer you in the right direction!
When an athlete falls in love with a non-athlete…it can be a match made in heaven. But if you’re the athlete in the relationship, it may break your heart to balance training, recovery and quality time with your partner and end up falling short (there aren’t enough hours in the day!). You’ll be happy to know that you can win them over with just a few romantic gestures up your sleeve.
Clothes can be stuffed into a suitcase. Toiletries can be downsized and fit into one-quart baggies. Even a laptop can be packed small and securely. In today’s world, you can travel with everything but the kitchen sink. Oh, wait — you can pack that, too! Snacking out of a suitcase is one way to keep up with your healthy lifestyle, so be sure you’re doing it right with these simple steps.
Did you just get a promotion at work that now requires frequent flyer miles? Are you spending the summer touring Europe? Do you have a destination occasion coming up? These are not good excuses to give up on your fit and fabulous lifestyle. You have finally settled into your healthy routine at home and life threw you a curve ball. Big deal! With my tried-and-true trip tips, you’ll be able to keep your eyes on the prize — no matter where your travels take you.
Q: What are your go-to foods when you’re traveling or on the go?
Amy Marsh answers:
A: Busy doesn’t begin to describe the holidays. Then, right after New Year’s we have just enough time to catch our breath before the start of a new race season. The life of an athlete – no matter your level — is demanding, which is why it’s imperative to fuel our bodies with healthy food. You can stay energized through the holidays and beyond by keeping a few nutritious, grab-and-go snacks on hand.
