When you have to travel frequently, your workout routines are likely to take a backseat if you are not careful. Although working out on the go may not be the easiest thing to do, it is not impossible if you have correct attitude and mindset. Since you are likely to be tired because of the travels, you need to plan ahead about where and when you will exercise. Before leaving for your work or holiday destination, it may be a good idea to pack your workout shoes, apparels, any portable fitness equipment you own and find out about the gym and other fitness opportunities offered by your hotel.
If you look at the calendar you'll realize there isn't a lot of time left before summer, and that might mean you only have a few months before you jet off on holiday. Now is the time to build as much muscle as possible before you go away because you'll look much better on the beach when you take your top off. Follow these tips and it will ensure you get the most bang for your buck.
This article gives people a few great ways they can stay active this summer by taking advantage of the nice weather, which won't last forever so we need to make the most of it while we still can.
Winter is tough for everyone and we all put on a few extra pounds because of the long nights and the cold weather. Summer is completely different and it's much easier to get back into a healthy, active lifestyle. Are you planning on getting into shape this summer? If so, here are a few great suggestions for things to do as soon as the hot weather starts to pick up again.
Don't exercise during the day
During summer you don't want to exercise in the middle of the day when the sun is at its peak. You might think you're doing well because you'll sweat more and you'll get tired quicker, but the only reason this is happening is because you're far too hot. Your sessions will end up being much shorter and you won't burn as many calories. If you train in the morning or in the evening you'll be able to train for a longer period of time which means you'll end up with results much quicker.
Stay active on holiday
When you go on holiday you want to relax, but this doesn't mean you should sit around the pool doing nothing every day. Exercise can actually be quite relaxing if you do it properly and you'll feel much better when you go out at night to stuff your face full of the local cuisine. The easiest way to stay active on holiday is by swimming a hundred lengths of the pool before anyone else wakes up. Get your training out of the way early and you can afford to take it easy for the rest of the day.
Don't hide in the gym
There is nothing worse than locking yourself in a gym on a beautiful day. When you see the sun shining through the window you'll wonder why you're stuck indoors. Instead of running on a treadmill you should finally try to run on the roads because you won't want to do it once the snow comes back.
Take the kids to the park
Strenuous training in the middle of the day isn't a good idea, but you can still remain active by exploring the great outdoors. If you have kids you can take them to the park more often. If they enjoy playing sports you can shoot some hoops with them or kick a ball about. I'm sure they'll keep you nice and active because you can't get kids to keep still during summer. Not only will this help you get fitter, but when you spend more time in the sun the extra vitamin-D your body will absorb will make you feel invincible.
Start going hiking
If you live near the woods you should start going hiking at the weekend and if you're feeling a little adventurous you can even take a tent with you to stay for the night. If you think lifting weights is tough you should try climbing up and down mountains carrying a heavy backpack. You'll burn tons of calories and by the time autumn comes around you'll be in the best shape of your life, though you might need to go for a little massage therapy through the week to sooth your muscles.
Don't waste your chance
You don't have to train like an athlete because it's hot, but I'm sure you'll enjoy getting into better shape before it starts to get cold again. It's always harder to motivate yourself to exercise when you can't even feel your toes from the moment you step outside.
People are living a lot longer these days, but that doesn't necessarily mean you'll be healthy when you get old. If you don't look after your body and mind as you age, you might feel terrible. You will only enjoy your twilight years if you're in good health, so I want to talk about a few ways you can change your life in order to get as much out of it as possible. Some of these ideas might not be new to you, but even if you implement one or two of them you'll feel much healthier.

Mike Volkin combines The Human Trainer and StrengthStack 52 for the ultimate Ab Challenge
To say Ron Dukes loves fitness is an under statement. Dukes is a 3-time National Karate Champion, a National Sport Aerobic Fitness Challenge Champ, 2-time participant in American Ninja Warrior, and a 2013 recipient of the Spartan Race "Spartan Trifecta." He works as a trainer specializing in Kickboxing and Capoeria, and is a Master Trainer for Fierce 4, a new exercise program out of Florida.
Ron is a huge fan of bodyweight training and loves incorporating The Human Trainer in his personal workouts as well as his clients’.
“Machines only give you a set direction on how to move your particular muscle. When you use a suspension gym, you are able to adjust your resistance and ease or difficulty of an exercise simply by changing your angle. Coupled with the ease of adjusting the angles quickly with The Human Trainer’s D-clip system, as well as its quick storage, and you have the perfect system!
It’s a great supplement as well as a total replacement for a gym. "You are you own gym" I enjoy the fact that it doesn't need a lot of space. All you need is a door or something solid to attach it to: Trees, monkey bars, railings. Love the flexibility!”
I'm a bodyweight person so it definitely helps out with my training. I'm able to change angles which assist in making certain exercises either easier or more difficult. Adding conditioning challenges. Helping with my handstand push ups.
I use it in the typical suspension style, but I also use the leg attachments to give me a higher angle on my pushups, and Rings to to my pull ups and muscle ups.
The Human Trainer has absolutely helped in my overall muscle development (size and definition).
The ability to not have to adjust the straps and use the hook & D-clip system making for faster transitions between angles... TRY IT!
