How to Workout When Staying at Someone’s Home

If you are staying at someone’s home, then you can continue to exercise in order to maintain your health. This is also a good opportunity for you to inspire a friend or relative to begin working out on a regular basis.

Way 1: Bring Small Exercise Equipment With You

You can bring small types of exercise equipment with you inside a suitcase. Some of the most portable pieces of equipment include:

• Stretchable exercise bands – easy to pack
• Yoga mat – to provide a soft surface
• Barbells – lightweight devices

Way 2: Contact Local Gyms for Daily Memberships

When you are visiting a friend, learn more about the local gyms before sending the business an email to learn if you can visit on a daily basis. In addition, you might already belong to a gym that permits you to use other gyms in different locations. Make sure to understand what is available at the gym in order to bring the correct workout clothing and footwear.

Way 3: Pack a Few Exercise DVDs

Pack a few of your favorite exercise DVDs to bring to your friend’s home. Nearly everyone has a DVD player in their home, and you can still enjoy a yoga or dance routine in a friend’s living room. Your friend may also want to join you by dancing or performing yoga postures.

Way 4: Attach a Bicycle to Your Vehicle

If you are driving to a relative’s home for a visit, then attach a bicycle to your vehicle with a specialized holder. After arriving at your destination, you can use your bicycle to explore the neighborhood. There are also foldable bicycles that you can fit inside a specialized case to bring along on an airplane.

Way 5: Walking and Hiking

When your relative lives in a rural area, you can enjoy hiking in the woods or in the mountains. Alternatively, if you are visiting a friend in the city, then you can go on long walks around the neighborhood. Make sure to pack the right types of footwear and clothing for hiking or walking.

Way 6: Find a Neighborhood Swimming Pool

If you can find a neighborhood swimming pool, then you can go swimming to have a workout. Pack your swimsuit in your suitcase, and make sure to bring along sunscreen lotion to protect your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Way 7: Perform Simple Exercises to Stay In Shape

It is easy to perform isometric exercises in any location in order to stay in shape. You probably learned a few isometric exercises while in high school because this type of workout is quick and easy. You can run in place, do knee bends or complete sit-ups for 30 minutes three times a week.
