Sarah Boulazeris from @basebodystudio chats to BB on ways to keep your body in check when travelling.

As a personal trainer who travels a lot for work and pleasure, Sarah understands the importance of keeping your body fit and healthy when away from the Base Body Studio and working with clients.

“When I travel; especially if it’s for two days or more, I always pack some form of gym gear and kicks in my suitcase. It’s literally the first thing I pack. This ensures the gear fits in my bag, so no excuses like ‘oh it doesn’t fit in my bag.’ It fits, so I know I”ll work out.”

Here’s Sarah’s advice on how to keep your body in check whilst travelling.

Before leaving for a trip, check out what gym facilities are at your local hotel. This way you can stay consistent with your training regime and plan ahead.

“For me, I have a lot of fit-fan across the country, so I try to organise a session with them to mix it up and refresh the exercise bank.”

Travelling is a good time to mix up your general fitness routine. Mix things up a bit and try something new, like a new workout. Something you wouldn’t normally do on a day to day basis.

No gym, no problems. Hit the streets. Exploring by foot is the best way to get your daily exercise and it also helps you to get your bearing, whilst experiencing the culture and atmosphere of the place you’re visiting.

Another great way to explore the city your travelling in, is to check out the local gyms and book a session. Many of them accept tourists for short stays and it;s a great way to meet new people, if your travelling alone and looking to meet some new peeps.

If your time travelling is short and you don’t want to spend your days at a gym, a quick body weight session in your hotel room or in a local park outside, is a great option to help maintain your fitness and mobility.

“Even if there is a gym in my hotel and I have time to use it, I try to get outside to workout to change up my training routine.”

Try this simple twenty minute full body sweat workout:

  • 10 squats
  • 5 jump squats
  • 10 push-ups
  • 5 burpees
  • 10 alternating lunges
  • 5 jump split squats (each side)
  • 30 second plank
  • 5 plank get ups
  • x 5 rounds

“Preparation is key. Stay consistent and stick to a training regime/program which works for you whilst travelling. I always take my UNIT NINE portable sweat pack when travelling and can create workouts wherever I go.”
