The weeks or months leading up to a vacation are usually spent making sure you are looking and feeling your best. And let’s face it, keeping that momentum going while on said trip is definitely easier said than done. Spending even a second in a hotel gym sounds dreadful when there are places to see, delicious food to taste and epic events to attend. Of course, walking or running around is a great way to take in the sights and get in cardio, but if you do find yourself wanting a bit more intensity, subscribing to a fitness app is the way to go.
Below are a range of workouts you can stream anywhere at your convenience like the Melissa Wood Health Method or a more structured plan from 54D. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit models Nina Agdal, Katrina Scott and Katie Austin also have created apps that are motivating and impactful. With these options, there is really no excuse not to move your body!
