STAY FIT: Travel Fitness

Stick with circuits

Most hotel exercise rooms will have at least one piece of equipment for each body part, so working out in circuit will work well. Do one set on each body part, and then hop on a bike or treadmill for 10 minutes.

Burn calories everyday

Go on a brisk walk after your day’s activities. This is a great way to see a new city, and also a great way to burn off the rich dinner you just ate! Take the stairs instead of elevator. Go on a short jog or if your hotel has a pool, swim a few laps each morning or evening.

Watch portion size

Eating out is a must when traveling. Whether you are visiting 5 star restaurants or fast food diners, you are faced with same problem: large portions. When you order your meal ask the waiter to bring you a to-go box with your meal. Or else ask that your entrée be made into a smaller portion. If it is dinnertime ask for the lunch-sized entrée.

Avoid fried foods

While fast food restaurants are definitely convenient, with their low prices and quick service, this convenience is not worth the inevitable weight gain brought on by the burgers and fries. When you travel, keep this in mind: avoid fried foods. —Agencies
