HIIT treadmill workout followed by some great heart-pumping compound exercises that kept me huffing and puffing. What a fantastic way to start the week!
Traveling around to different gyms challenges me to be more independent in my workouts. I really love working with a trainer because it gives my brain a break. I spend all day solving problems and figuring out stuff for other people to do, so it's nice to have some time when someone else decides things and I just follow. When I am on the road, I write out my workouts on that little pad of paper they leave you in hotel rooms so when I get down to the "gym," I am not at a loss for what to do. It's a great accountability tool, as well, because I save the little cocktail-napkin workouts for future trips and remember what worked and didn't work.
They also make me feel guilty when I am thinking about skipping a workout, which is a nice side-benefit. :)
What do you do when you're away from home base? Traveling doesn't have to mean letting your health and fitness lapse; it's a great chance to try something new and challenge yourself!
