Having an exercise bike in the house or a health club nearby can be a great motivator to keep up with exercise, but time on the road can make it easy to let the workouts slide. For those times you’re away from a weekly routine, we’ve brought together some great tips for how to get your heart rate going – some that can even be done in your hotel room.

Exercising In Your Room

Staying in shape on the road doesn’t mean you have to lug around heavy equipment in your luggage (imagine that!). Through some basic exercises, you can do the necessary work to help you stay in shape without actually using any equipment at all. Simple standbys like push-ups are great for your body, and for a higher-level workout, you can alternate with staggered push-ups by using a phone book or other prop in your room. For info on other no-equipment exercises, check out this article from About.Com.

Yoga For Travelers

If you’ve ever participated in a Yoga class before, you no doubt understand some of its unique benefits. Yoga is a simple and effective way to keep your body in tune, but it’s also a wonderful way to relax, especially if you are starting to feel stressed out. iYogaLife has setup a convenient and easy-to-use slideshow that demonstrates some great poses for travelers that you can even do in the airport!

Exercising At Country Inns and Suites

The best way to stay in shape while traveling is to make sure your hotel is equipped with a fitness center. Many Country Inns and Suites destinations offer fitness facilities and a selection of our properties feature indoor or outdoor pools.
