An ill-equipped hotel gym isn't a valid excuse to skip your daily fitness routine. You don't need a treadmill or other cardio and strength equipment to work out.
Sticking with your workouts will help you sleep better and keep bloat at bay. Besides, breaking your exercise regimen now will only come back to haunt you on your first trip back to the gym when you return home.
Avoid that unpleasant experience by using these hotel room workouts to stay in shape when you're on the road.
Note: Speak to your doctor before starting any new fitness program.
