RELAX AND SWEAT
These fast but not-so-easy workouts are perfect for this high travel time of year, with no equipment necessary!
Whether you’re staying at a beachfront hotel for a few days or camped out at Grandma’s for Christmas break, we have some options to help keep you on track!
Ladder workouts are a great way to get in a quick cardio session, without the use of any equipment, using only your own body weight.
You can create your own Ladder workout by picking 3-5 exercises.
Perform one rep of each exercise, then repeat with 2 reps of each exercise; then 3 reps, 4 reps of each, etc. until you have completed 10 reps of each exercise.
THEN go back down the “ladder”, 9 reps, 8 reps, etc. until you are back at one rep of each exercise.
After all is said and done, you will have performed 100 reps of each exercise!
For those who have just begun bumping up their fitness or getting back into it.

I’VE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK
For those who are more advanced with their fitness routines.
1. Burpees (without push ups)
2. Push ups
3. Jumping lunges
For those Weekend Warriors who are seasoned fitness enthusiasts.
1. Burpees (with push ups)
2. Jumping lunges
3. Jump Squats
4. Plank to push ups
These should take anywhere from 20-30 minutes to complete, the goal is little to no rest between workouts.
Challenge yourself by timing a session and trying to beat that time going forward. Once you feel the workout becoming less difficult, try another or add on another exercise!
So go ahead and make those travel plans and go get your sweat on!
