…AT THE HOTEL…Quickie Workout in Bed
These are real and very effective workouts, using your mattress like a less stable yoga mat. You can get a full cardio, toning workout without ever getting out of bed. Perfect to motivate you up in the morning or when you get in bed at the end of the night and realize that you “forgot” to workout.
They are also your alternative to working out on dirty hotel room floors, finding a gym in an unfamiliar city, or even just as a lazy (but super effective) workout to do every day at home for weight loss and muscle tone.

On-The-Go Fit Accessory MUST
To boost your on-bed moves, I use Empower Fitness Total Body Toning Bands (which I also ALWAYS travel with since they are pretty much your gym to go). They are made by women for women so they come in great colors and fit our bodies proportions and strength better than the “unisex” equipment. Empower Fitness
