Workout Anywhere and Anytime! No Excuses!

Arches National Park, Utah

Arches National Park, Utah

To those of you who have read all my blogs and are mad at me for the one month delay since my last post all I can say is: “Sorry Mom…”

The above picture is one of the window arches in Arches National Park in Utah. I took this photo on the return trip home from a family vacation. Hopefully, everyone is enjoying their summer with a chance recover from all the club and school sports that have been dominating the schedule. The problem is that when hiking around the park I kept thinking about what a beautiful place to workout in!

No longer do we have any excuses to not keep up our workouts and healthy lifestyles. The below image shows the items I carry on every trip.

Inside my travel roller, I can pack a mini Tiger Tail, mini band, and super bands. The sequence of rolling out, stretching, and then progressive resistance exercises can be followed. The beauty of this set up allows me to have a varied workout only limited by my imagination and location. I can squat, plank, and monster walk under a beautiful rock arch or in a hotel room. Heck, even if you don’t carry anything I have body weight circuits that involve 30 different exercises. Just let me know and we can go through it together.

At the end of the day there is no excuse not to do a little something everyday. Create a good habit of exercise and that will lead to big health benefits! (And explore your National Parks!! They’re amazing!!)
