Traveling Soon? Here’s how to stay fit and healthy on the road

Getting in a workout on the road can be a struggle, and healthy eating can be twice as hard. I don’t pretend to have all of the answers, but here are a few things that have worked for me:

Always pack workout clothes.

I always pack my running shoes—even if I don’t get to run, they are great to slip on for the flight back or just walking around the airport or hotel.

Unless you’re that daring individual who shows up 5 minutes before pre-board, you are going to be at the airport early anyway, so use that time to take a power walk through the terminal

Walking is your friend.

Bring snacks…seriously.

If you’re traveling the conference circuit, packing healthy snacks is equally important since you truly never know what may end up on your plate…especially if you’re vegetarian/vegan (I have SO many stories about this).

I worked in a few exercise “snacks” along the way, including some squats and wall pushups in my hotel room and some stair-climbing at the event location.

Every little bit counts.
