How many times have you always used traveling as an excuse to skip a good workout? Or maybe you tried to train but the only hotel treadmill was a sad excuse for a gym. If you sit behind the wheel (or in the passenger seat) like millions of other Americans making road trips this year, you'll definitely want to get moving as soon as you turn off the car for the night
With this creative Tabata training Coach Kaisa Keranen (@kaisafit) can get your blood pumping. This fast metabolism boost routine proves that you can train in a good hotel room if you have a suitcase – the heavier the better! (No suitcase – try this toilet paper workout.) Try it between destinations to help you feel cooler when sitting on your butt for more than 5 hours (even if your seats are heated).
