Here are free ways that you can get exercise while on the road. You can also get the feel of travel while at home by taking classes streamed from great locations around the work.
I love to travel. I am also hyper-focused on my health and well-being. That means it is important that I eat well and get proper exercise. Not just when I am on the road, but when I am home too.
Recently, I shared how I transformed my body by adopting a whole food plant-based lifestyle. Now I will share my favorite ways to get exercise.
Best Home & Travel Workouts
Here are some ways to get exercise while traveling:
- hotel gym or pool
- online exercise classes
I walk every single day. My addiction to walking is so strong that I feel strange if I do not walk. I have worn a fitness tracker for several years now counting my steps.
When I change my lifestyle, I adjusted my fitness tracker to keep track of active minutes rather than steps. I found that it was important to vary the types of exercise that I get.
When we travel and stay in hotels, I like to get a workout in the gym or pool. At home, I used to do strength training at a nearby recreation center. Social distancing has changed that so I no longer go to the gym.
Camping has become our safe travel of choice, but there are no workout rooms at a campground.
Travel Workout No Equipment
I have discovered that there are many workout options online, even if you do not have exercise equipment. I particularly like the free offerings from Silver&Fit. These classes are offered on Facebook and YouTube and can be taken in the privacy of your own home, in a hotel room, or even outside.
Silver&Fit classes geared for older adults of all fitness levels. They offer nine classes a day focused on cardio, yoga, strength, and flexibility & balance. They even offer dance and tai chi. All these great options come in beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.
Sometimes I catch the class live but most of the time I take a recorded class on the Silver&Fit Facebook page. I can take a class anywhere my phone goes, even at the beach!
Streaming Classes From Around the World
With restricted travel, my favorite workouts are the International classes. These are taught from beautiful locations around the world. I take these classes and I feel like I am right there with the instructor poolside, on a balcony, or by the ocean. The International classes are streamed live Monday-Saturday at 5PM EST/2PM PST.
As you can see from the schedule below, Silver&Fit offers 54 classes a week. Classes are offered on the hour Monday through Saturday starting at 11AM EST/8AM PST through 7PM EST/4PM PST.
