3 Simple Travel Workouts

we recently got home from a mini honeymoon to california and now i’m suffering from a severe case of wanderlust. i’m already looking into where to plan our next trip! it’s funny how travel can do that to you.. make you long for more.. make you want to leave your cozy home and explore the unknown. it’s magical. it also doesn’t hurt that i have the best travel partner by my side and where ever he is feels like home anyways.. i know.. that probably makes you want to vomit. #sorrynotsorry

something that is important to us whenever we travel is the gym. it’s so hard to get back on track if you stop this healthy habit so we try to maintain it, even on vacations. plus, in my opinion, there is no better way to start a day than with a sweat.. and then you won’t feel guilty when you eat more than your fair share of chocolate throughout the day (guilty as charged).

today i’m sharing three workouts ben and i did in california. the gym at our hotel was pretty awful.. 2 treadmills, 1 bike, 1 elliptical and dumbbells up to 25 pounds only! but we made due.. you can get a good workout in no matter where you are (even if you’re ben and used to lifting much heavier than 25 pounds)!
