Here at Nomaterra, we're all about travel; all of our products are perfect for use on-the-go, making it easy for you to smell fantastic wherever your life takes you. But as avid travelers ourselves, we know it isn't always as easy to transport the rest of your daily life with you when you're leaving on a jet plane. On the road, one of the first things many of us let go is our work out regimen. Of course, taking a break every once in a while won't ruin your fitness goals, but it really is best to stay in a routine. So in an attempt to make it easier for you to stick to that routine, we've cultivated a few of our favorite tips and tricks for working out on the go!
: This amazing subscription site provides a wide range of video yoga classes online! You can sort by style, difficulty, or length, and pick the perfect class for you! If your hotel room is big enough, lay out a towel on the floor and work your way through one of these classes in the privacy of your own room. As an added bonus, you'll be totally calm and relaxed once you finish!
2. Body Weight Work Out: One of the easiest ways to get your workout in is to use the one thing you're sure to have with you: you're own body weight! Do three sets of each of the following exercises for a quick and easy full body workout:
12-15 Wide Leg Squats
12-15 Calf Raises (each leg)
10-12 Incline Push-Ups: rest your feet up on the bed or a chair, then stretch your body out and place your hands on the floor!
12-15 Tricep Dips
: use a nightstand or chair to work the backs of your arms!
12-15 Reverse Crunches
(these are fantastic for working your lower abs)
30 seconds-1 minutes plank
This workout can be modified to incorporate more or less of any particular muscle group, and should be super quick and easy to get done no matter where you are!
3. Walk It Off: If you're on vacation, take advantage of the ability to walk around to sight see; you'll be getting your workout in without even realizing it!
4. Swim Laps: Even if your hotel doesn't have a gym, it's likely they'll have a pool. Swimming laps is fantastic cardio and works your entire body at the same time! If the pool is outside, be sure to wear waterproof sunscreen before diving in.
