an easy workout circuit for traveling

When I'm traveling, I get antsy if I am just eating out and drinking, but not doing any sort of actual exercise. I always do get lots of exercise just from walking alone, but as you know, I LOVE to indulge in the cultural food and drinks and learn about the restaurants each city has to offer, so walking typically doesn't cut it. Usually when we're on trips, we often walk 8-10 miles per day without noticing, going from landmark to landmark or just wandering and getting lost in a city's charm. But there's something about getting a good sweat on that makes me feel more cleansed after a big meal or a night of drinking. It's always hard to pull myself to do something active on vacation, but I really do feel so much better after and make more of my days.

20 minute workout circuit

So, today I'm sharing my favorite workout for on-the-go. It's only 20 minutes so it's hardly a commitment or taking time away from your explorations, which is why I love it! You may have seen me posting clips from it on my Instagram story in the past few weeks, because I've been doing it a lot - even while home in San Francisco, since I recently injured my hand and am taking a quick break from hot yoga!

This workout takes 20 minutes (usually I do an ab workout after which takes about 10 additional minutes!) and requires almost no equipment, so it's a perfect workout while traveling. Short, sweaty, and simple! It's also a circuit, which means you'll be doing short, 1 minute intervals at a time. Perfect for those who get bored easily - so many different exercises makes the workouts go by so quickly.
