6 No Equipment Holiday Travel Workouts

As I sit in the terminal, waiting to board a plane to go home for the holidays, I’m mentally reviewing my packing list to make sure I didn’t forget anything. Chunky sweaters, fuzzy socks, pretty presents all wrapped up for the family? Check, check, check! Another cool thing I’m bringing home with me? A set plan of workouts I can do anywhere, anytime without the need for any gym equipment at all. When I can do something quickly outside first thing in the morning while the rest of the family sleeps, with no need to shell out cash to go to a gym, I’m more apt to actually do it (and excuses are harder to come by!)

I love these ideas from The Daily HIIT Blog – check them out if you need some ideas for balancing out all of the yummy treats and drinks that come with holidays at home.

There are 2 types of workouts listed:

-HIIT routines (time based). Use if you have a timer or stopwatch on your phone, watch or an interval timer
