Whether your holiday travel plans are taking you back home or to a totally new location, we’re sharing the travel workouts that work no matter where you are. Peloton instructors Olivia Amato, Jess Sims and Hannah Marie Corbin weigh in on how they break a sweat when this season gets busy.
Set Out To Explore
“Use working out as a way to explore wherever you are over the holidays,” says Peloton cycling instructor Olivia Amato. “This could be on the beach, exploring a relative’s town, or going on a family run in your childhood neighborhood.” Even if you’re home for the holidays, chances are there have been some updates to your old haunts, and if you’re in a totally new environment, there are even more sights to see. “Whether it’s a 10 or 60-minute sweat session, it’s always fun to try something new, somewhere new!”
Sweat With Friends
If sticking to your workout routine over the holidays feels like it may be challenging, Peloton Tread instructor Jess Sims suggests bringing someone along to help keep you accountable. “When I’m back in Boston, I try to include a different friend or family member in every one of my workouts,” says Jess. “It makes me happy because I’m spending time with people I love and showing them how important working out is. I love showing how far I’ve come while sharing my passion with people I care about so much.” Most importantly, be grateful for this time with the ones you love and the ability to break a sweat together–as Jess says, “you don’t have to work out, you get to.”
If your holiday schedule is jam packed and you need to make the most of your time, Peloton cycling instructor Hannah Marie Corbin suggests getting creative in the kitchen. “My favorite time to sneak in an extra workout is while I’m cooking,” says Hannah. “My top three moves: heel raises, single-leg balances and side bends!” These simple yet effective movements will help you tone up while you turkey. “Try 3 sets of 10-15 heel raises, 3 sets of 30 second holds on each leg for single-leg balances and 3 sets of 30 side bends on each side,” says Hannah, “and use the countertop for stability. Holding a small bag of rice or bottle of wine in lieu of hand weights adds an extra challenge!”
