I like I'm sure many of you have to travel from time to time for work. This shouldn't get in the way of your training. In fact this is a good opportunity to get in some really good training time. How and why you may ask? Firstly often you will have more time in the morning or evening as you will not have the distractions of home life eg - Feeding the kids, doing the washing up, getting ready for work to beat the rush hour etc. You can wake up in your hotel room and hit the gym with little getting in the way. Also by ensuring you train whilst you are away on business means you are likely to keep the momentum of your existing training and hence keep the gains coming. You have a range of options for the training. You could simply put your joggers on and go for a run. Many hotels will have a small fitness centre that you could use or alternatively if you want to continue your lifting properly and require an olympic bar and some serious weight I find the best thing to do is to jump on the internet and find the local gyms that are available. One way of saving money is to try and avoid the commercial gyms like Fitness First and find the university gyms. These are usually subsidized but often have lifting platforms and proper lifting areas for the university athletes. Other ways of making sure you get in a good workout are to do the following:
