Travel doesn’t have to be an obstacle to working out! With this quick No Equipment Hotel Room Workout you can get a quick full body fitness session in without even leaving your room.
It feels so good to be home. I might be playing catch up for a month, but I'm just trying to take it a day at a time right now.
My first priority has been getting my foot looked at. I went to the doctor about the cut on my foot from the coral. It is a really long story, but basically it was a pretty deep cut and the hospital in Brazil put butterfly suters on it. It took us so long to get to a decent hostital in Sao Paulo (I cut in Paraty,) that the doctors told me they could not do regular stitches. My doctor here said all considering, it is healing really well but I have to keep changing the sutures and stay off of it for two more weeks. It was just getting back from normal after my mild ankle sprain last month, so I'm kind of bummed. I know how lucky I am that it is not infected and it is healing, so I'm trying to keep it in perspective. However, I'm not going to lie, I could really use a good long run or even a walk right now! 🙁
Anyways, for all of you who have two good feet today, I have a workout for you.
When I am traveling I usually don’t worry about workouts as much as when I am at home. But that doesn’t mean I completly slack off. I try to plan activities that involve hiking, swimming or walking plus I will try to go for a few runs on a trip. If all else fails, I’ll sneak in a version of this workout in the morning, before even leaving the hotel room.
I love this workout because it requires no equipment but still covers cardio, strength and abs. If you are super tight on time, you can do it once. However if you have more time, do it two to three times for thirty minute workout blast.

Thanks for stopping by today guys! I hope you enjoy the workout as much as I do.
I’m off to work some sort of exercising that doesn't involve my foot... it might just be 10 minutes of abs, but I'm sure anything will make me feel better.
Tomorrow I have a simple, yet delicious trick to make your own homemade salsa in minutes. So delicious and simple!
I’m linking this post with Wild Workout Wednesday and Wow! Workout Wednesdays. Also Jill Conyers for Fitness Friday. Thank you so much ladies for the link up party!
Do you workout on vacation?

Aww, hope your foot is doing fine. That's a real bummer. I also find it hard to work out when my foot is injured. I still do, but I make sure not to force it too much. Can't make the injury even worse than it already is, right?
Oh yes! I've learned that the hard way. It's much easier to just wait it out than to force it. Always makes it last longer.
Great workout. You can do this anywhere! Thanks for sharing this, I'm pinning for later of course 🙂
So happy I found you and your blog, Julie! Also, I love that you shared this. I will be away this weekend (at a hotel with no gym!) and will give this a go! Thanks for sharing!!!
I love it! Pinning 🙂
Ah, I'm definitely gonn abe needing this when I'm traveling all over the place! :] Thanks for putting it together! 😀 Pinning to my fitness board! <3
I'm glad your foot didn't get infected, and I hope it heals quickly!
Janelle @ Run With No Regrets says
Sorry to hear about your foot, glad it's at least healing properly! Love the traveling workout. So many moves you can do with no equipment! #wowlinkup
Nicole @ Fitful Focus says
Awesome! This is perfect for small NYC apartments, too 🙂 I hope your foot heals up quickly!
Exactly! Much like a hotel room, I can imagine!
Jess @hellotofit says
Hope your foot gets better. Great list of exercises; perfect for the hotel room! ...or anywhere.
Angelena Marie says
Glad to hear your foot is healing up, but it is a bummer when you can't get your workouts in when you really want to! You could always do seated arm, chest and shoulder work 🙂
This is a great workout to have on hand when you want to get a quick workout in, I pinned it to use for this weekend when we will be up north!
Thanks for linking up! I always enjoy your posts!
Great ideas. I'm going to add that to my lists of things I CAN do 🙂
Jessica @Myhealthypassion.com says

Thanks Jessica! I hope so too.
Stacie @ SimplySouthernStacie says
Sorry about your foot! Getting injured on vacation is the worst - hope it heals quickly!
Thanks Stacie. I did really stink!
I am so sorry to hear about your foot. Will miss you at the Walk-A-Thon. 🙁
Oh! I will still be there!!! I'm hoping it is healed.
Danyelle Musselman says
Get well soon! Love this hotel room workout, my gym doesn't have childcare on Sundays so it's something I can try when I get stuck at home
Perfect for that!
Love hotel room workouts! Hope your foot is feeling better soon <3 Thanks so much for linking up!

Awesome workout for traveling and even if you're not traveling. Pinning for next week's workout plan.
Thanks Jill! I hope it goes well!
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner says
Plank jacks ugh love to hate those! Great workout here that you can do anywhere. Hope your ankle is feeling better.
Love, hate... I agree!
So great to have a plan for while you travel...travel isn't an excuse to leave fitness behind but an opportunity to make it fun and different!
I totally agree! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to see you again!
Susie @ SuzLyfe says
Hope your foot heals quickly! I scraped my foot up pretty well on rock in Hawaii, and I still have scars from it.
Thanks Susie! Yeah-- I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a scar 🙁 Oh well...
Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes says
Can't wait to try this one out today!
Thanks Sue! Happy workout 🙂
Blane Sherer says
Hope all goes well with your foot. That's a nice " in hotel " or " at home " workout.
Libby Haire says
Good moves. Looks like you could do most of these while your foot is recuperating. Take care!
Thanks Libby! I will be doing a few of them!
