Tip #1 – Hotel Amenities

Most hotels, especially the larger chains are able to take care of ALL their customers’ needs. Pools, restaurants, bars and room service are the most used facilities but most also have a fitness room. (Probably be tucked away somewhere covered in cobwebs!)

While you may not get the full array of weights and machines you can access at your own gym, there’s usually stationary bikes and treadmills.

A simple 30-minute round of dedicated exercise each morning, along with a few laps of the pool, will help burn off excess holiday food and drink.

Tip #4 Lightweight Equipment & Room Workouts

If you’re going to be staying in places where you’ll have no access to facilities, there’s a couple of things you can do.

First up you can pack a resistance band – small, lightweight and a great alternative to weights.

Second, you can use bodyweight exercises and use your suitcase as your weights.
