Great ideas! Thanks! At our last spot in Ohio, the kids and I had a great time hiking in the surrounding woods. We could easily spend a couple hours out there and cover 2 miles of lots of up and down. The dogs loved it too. I'll check out those fitness videos. I've looked around some and found a few things that will help out. I'll check out the Leslie Sansone DVD's too. They sound good!
Perhaps some of the sparkvideos have things you could do in the RV in little space, such as Leslie Sansone's DVDS? You are right, it isn't always favorable weather for walking, yet when it is, different parks can be a great place to walk! One of my top five memories of our trip to the Smokies was walking on the walking trail in Townsend, TN with the view of the Smokies. It was great!
I use Leslie Sansone DVD's called Walk Away The Pounds. I can pop them in the DVD or even my Lap Top and do them in the privacy of my MH. If you're not familiar with them, it's almost like marching or walking in place. Believe it or not, they are great work outs and a lot of RVer's use them. I also use them at home in the cold or rainy weather.

I used to live in our 5th wheel full time and am again in a TT full time. Space for exercise is a definite problem. Check the parks you are at and see if they have an exercise room. Some of them do. I always liked it when we were in a park that had that option. Or even a swimming pool, of course that would be a little cool at this time of the year unless you are down south. Depending on how large your trailer is a Wii is an excellent option. They have lots of games that are very strenuous (sp?). Of course walking when the weather permits is always excellent. If you can't do it outside, you might see if there is a mall or something in the town and go walk there. I used to do that alot. Hope these suggestions help.

How nice that you all can travel and follow your husband where ever his job is! When we are in the RV, I like to take walks around the park. Usually the roads are pretty good and sometimes they are even paved. Or, take your bicycle and ride where you can. You can always use resistance bands in the RV, or do pushups or some other kind of exercise that doesn't require a lot of equipment or space.

LOL We travel for my husband's job and when it takes him more than 2 hours from the house we all travel in the RV. Last time we went to Ohio for a few months. Right now we are back at the house while he recovers from hernia surgery. While we are here, it isn't so hard to figure out exercise. I can close my bedroom door and do things or easily take a walk (when it isn't so cold!) but once we get back in the RV, I'm not sure what I'll do. Some places are easy to take walks at and others aren't. I can't imagine trying jumping jacks in the camper or out where everyone can watch.
Anyway, thought I'd check out what other RV people were doing and see what kind of tips I can get. :)
