Exercising When Traveling

If you are looking for an exercise to perform while on the road, (or at lunch break!) stair climbing is a great choice. If your hotel has at least a couple stories of height, you can get this workout in and not have to wait until the fitness center is open

You can perform steady endurance work in some quick intervals or work in some quick bursts up the stairs and come down at a more moderate pace. Another variation is to change the stride up the steps. A longer stride targets the thighs and glutes; a shorter stride works more on the calves and thighs. The only equipment you need is a watch to time your workout and you're set.

Since most people take the easy way out via the elevator, the stairs are usually empty and available for when ever you want to work out.

The first and the best victory is to conquer self.
