DIETING ON A PER DIEM
Staying Fit on the Road
By Melissa Sperl
IS THE ONLY exercise you get when you travel the occasional
sprint to your airplane gate? Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, keeping your exercise plan alive can be difficult; the journey itself can be exhausting and your normal routine is often distrupted, whether by business meetings or family visits. But, say our experts, it can be done. Your usual exercise routine may be hard to follow elsewhere, too. The path you always walk after work is hundreds of miles away, and so is your regular gym. How, where and when will you squeeze in a workout? “For the busy traveler, obstacles like gym-less hotels, jet lag and late-night business dinners can get in the way of maintaining
a fitness regime,” says Bonne Marano, certified personal trainer and coauthor of The Road Warrior Workout (Hatherleigh). But that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. In fact, a Travel Industry Association of America report found that more than one-fourth of U.S. travelers use a fitness center or gym while traveling. If you make a point to stick to it, you can work out while you’re away from home, too.
