Bikini season has arrived, great summer hotel deals are available, and many don’t realize how easy it is to incorporate a workout into their everyday lives – even while traveling.
Hotels.com is making travelers sweat in a good way, with their recently launched luggage workout video designed for travelers looking to feel the burn while waiting for their plane, train or automobile.
According to a recent Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health study, road warriors who travel for business two weeks or more a month have higher body mass index, higher rates of obesity and poorer self-rated health than those who travel less often.
One in five travelers checked a suitcase when traveling abroad, meaning the other eighty percent are most likely trying to beat those annoying additional baggage charges by hauling, pushing or dragging suitcases around airports. But what many travelers don’t realize is that suitcases and bags make for fantastic impromptu gym equipment.
With the help of fitness guru Troy Dureh, hotels.com has devised a workout that aims to help travelers make the most of their journey, with a number of simple exercises that are perfect to fill the hours spent waiting at airports. Dureh is one of the most versatile international fitness presenters in the U.K., known for his dynamic personality, unique teaching style as well as delivering high energy, motivational workouts.
Instead of only working out biceps while lifting a pint of beer or glass of wine at the airport bar, travelers are encouraged to utilize weightlifting techniques from the “suitcase struggle” to “carrying curlers.” The luggage workout comprises of a range of specially designed exercises available using your own weights, your luggage.
