We know many of you travel for work- below you will find two lists for you. The first list is for workouts you can do inside a hotel gym (thanks to Jason Khalipa of Norcal Crossfit). The second list is what you can do inside your hotel room (thanks to Steele Creek CrossFit).
HOTEL GYM TRAVEL WODS
· See if you can play music off your iPhone. No ear plugs they just get in the way.
· If you use a timer on your phone switch the auto lock off.
· Scale accordingly (should be challenging but doable with good technique)
· Hit it hard and always complete full range of motion
· Immediately get on the treadmill or bike when you walk in the door. Start walking or jogging then decide your workout…..don’t sit there and think about it, get your body moving ASAP! You should have a decent sweat before you start, get the floor a bit wet, a gym needs a little sweat on the floor sometimes.This workouts aren’t design to crush people, just great for a workout on the road….something that makes you feel good when you leave your hotel room ready for the day!
