Almost missing your flight and sprinting across the airport to board that flight really shouldn’t be the only source of your cardio when heading out of town. If you are a fitness buff like me, I rarely miss a workout … unless I am traveling. I don’t know what it is about traveling, but I lose the motivation because I don’t have my usual workouts unless I bring DVD’S, some easy to pack equipment, plus workout clothing. Frankly, that “stuff” takes up too much space in the suitcase! After talking to many friends and colleagues, I found out I am not the only one with this problem. It’s crazy difficult to stay on task and squeeze in a workout if you are out of town on business. If you are on vacation, you might feel like you earned a break from those workouts.
With more Americans traveling on business and pleasure than ever before, the need for improved fitness and well-being on the road has never been greater. Nearly one-half of travelers polled by USA Today felt that they were in worse shape because they lack the time or the means to exercise properly during travel.
Want more evidence? A recent study found that 65% of travelers say they exercise less while on the road.
There is a solution! JW Marriott Hotels and Resorts have partnered with The Joffrey Ballet to provide a solution to travelers who want to work out while on the road. Marriott Hotels and Resorts is launching a new series of in-room barre workout videos available ON DEMAND (!!) via the in-room TVs.
Global Brand Leader- JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts’ Mitzi Gaskins and The Joffrey Ballet’s Artistic Director, Ashley Wheater are here to tell us about it!
Here’s an inspirational video from JW Marriott for you to check out that shows off the Los Cabos Marriott resort and their amenities! (I so need to go there!)
