How I Stay in Shape When I'm on the Go, by Hannah Bronfman

This week, we’re content-swapping with our friends at HBFit! Short for Health Beauty Fitness, HBFIT is the brainchild of DJ, fitness lover, and all-around cool girl Hannah Bronfman, and it's your guide to living a healthy, green juice–fueled life. The HBFit team will be writing about health, fitness, and Halloween candy on Byrdie, and you can head over to HBFit to see a new beauty story from us each day (including but not limited to our editorial director’s fall skincare routine and all the ways you can use pumpkin in your beauty routine). On day four, Bronfman is sharing three easy ways to stay fit while traveling (especially now that Thanksgiving is just around the corner…)


I am always traveling, and it can be exhausting. It’s easy to use not being home as an excuse to skip a workout, but I find that if you dedicate yourself to at least 20 minutes to sweating it out when you’re traveling, it helps ease my travel stress and boosts my productivity during my busy days. Check out these three quick workouts you can do in any hotel gym—or even your hotel room.

Mat workouts are also easy to do wherever you are. Even if you don’t have access to light weights or a yoga mat, you can knock out a 20-minute floor workout. Grab a towel from your hotel room and throw in some push-ups, crunches, leg lifts, and my favorite ab exercise, planks, to burn a quick sweat.

It’s so important to stretch those muscles. Fifteen minutes a day improves flexibility and range of motion and helps prevent injury. It also helps me relax after a long flight. The best thing? You don’t even need any weights.

I love Bosu balls($99). They help with balance and add an extra element to your workout. Grab a light kettlebell and hop on your Bosu. Mix it up with different leg lunges and kicks. Three reps of 20 on each side will have your legs burning in no time.
