I'm not going to a hotel. I'm staying in a youth center in a room with 12 to 30 other people.

Most hotels have a workout gym..When I have to travel for kids competions and I have to roomate , I hit the workout room early, if there is no gym, I walk the long halls and up the stairs.

I'm going to be rooming with a dozen or more people, and I generally don't like working out in front of people, so I want to be more cardio-focused, and/or something I can do outdoors. I think jump rope interval training is the answer.

And I already have my at-home back up plan if the weather is bad, or to change it up, the Sparkpeople Cardio Blast Jump Rope routine!

LEC's post reminded me: a Tabata workout you can take with you

Google 30 minute body weight workout. There will be a ton of results for circuit exercises you can complete with no equipment.

This one is my favorite for when I don't have time to go to the gym but still want to work out:

get some bands and throw them in your suitcase! I love mine. Been using them for years.

challenges for when you're on the road...hmmm. How about push-ups, planks, squats, lunges?

enjoy your vacation!

Definitely do some kind of cardio each day. You have a jump rope and I'm sure there are tons of youtube videos! Even just jumping rope for 10 mins a day.

What kind of challenge are you looking for? Cardio? Or a type of strength? I know of a lot of them and would love to point you to a bunch so you can choose for yourself :)

I'm setting up a new workout system that will involve me taking on a new challenge every 28 days (excluding the Body Revolution which will take 3 months to complete)

Starting Friday, I'm doing the 28 Day bootcamp with Coach Nicole, and I think I may get a new Leslie Sansone 30 Day program for the end of August/beginning of September.

That still leaves 8 weeks in between. I'm considering Ripped in 30 for the second 4.

The problem is, I leave for a short 3 day vacation right after I finish the bootcamp. I won't be able to bring my DVDs with me, so I need a challenge I can take with me. I can pack my jump rope, so a jump rope challenge might work, but I am interested in other ideas. I'm not a runner, and I try not to include walking in my challenges outside of Leslie Sansone workouts because I already have a 10,000 step goal. Walking is a given.
