    1. Thanks Stephen. I’ll be posting more as we go. I’ll eventually have a “travel workouts” page where you’ll be able to find all the workouts you’ll ever need to stay fit on the road. Getting yourself to actually wake up and do them is the hardest part!

      1. I bet Ryan! I’m a workout junkie but I always gain a little weight and lose mass when traveling because 1)Hostels don’t have Gyms lol 2) it is hard to get motivated! Maybe you should write a post of motivation tips :)

  1. Think we can handle this! We’ll try it out when we hit the road again. We always try to squeeze in workouts to counteract all the extra travel foods we eat!

  2. I love HIIT exercises – perfect for fitting exercise in on the road! We’re off in a month to drive across Canada, and am always looking for variety, so I’ll be sure to pin this too :)

  3. This looks like an awesome travel workout. Can you explain the lunges (side, front, and kick)…just want to make sure I do them correctly.

  4. I was thinking of going back at gym but this one can be done at home. Such a nice set routine, best thing is we do easily do it at home.

  5. Wow – this is super helpful – for those days when you can’t fit in a full workout or especially when traveling. Thanks!
