Staying in Shape While Traveling

When you’re on the road for days or even weeks at a time, it can be hard to stay fit and healthy. The calories can add up when you’re eating at restaurants all the time, and it can be hard to find a local gym or place to go for a run.

To keep you eating healthy while traveling, check out our “Eating Healthy on the Road” blog post, which gives you some ideas of what foods to stock in your InTown Suites fridge and kitchen cupboards.

To help you keep your fitness routine on track while staying with us at InTown Suites, we’ve put together a 30 minute exercise routine that can be done in your guestroom.  This routine combines cardio and toning exercises for a total body work out. Feel free double up on the routine for a full hour work out. All you’ll need is a towel to act as an exercise mat.

    2. Complete 50 Jumping Jacks
    3. Get down on the floor for 20 push-ups
    4. Stay on the floor and hold the plank position for 1-minute, or as long as you can
