and products to achieve your own fitness goals. And, don't

my first introductory blog I would like to share with you my recent
"vacation" workout experience. This happens to be one of my
favorite topics. Although I "scale" back my workouts while on
vacation, I never go without exercise. Remember, it is much harder
to get back into it when you return. Therefore, staying "fine
tuned" while away will keep you motivated. I stayed
at my brother's house in Massachusetts. Fortunately, the weather was
great and one day we did some hiking in the New Hampshire mountains.
for my next workout, I needed to be a little creative. The gym I usually
go to while visiting my brother was closed... meaning out of business. Was I
worried? Absolutley not. I always bring my tubing system (elastic
bands) when I travel. They are very light weight and
portable. That particular day, I looked for other items that could mimic
what I need in the gym. Here is what I found in the
backyard and actually used (really) in my workout:
playground: Excellent Pull-up station
link fence: Attached my tubing system for various upper body resistance
Donald Duck beach ball: Added resistance for Pilates and ab
pool flotation mat: This was my Pilates and abs mat
furniture: Perfect for stretching and leg lifts/supported
perimeter of the inground pool: Walking lunges!
you see, with just a little creativity you can get a great workout
anywhere! I look forward to receiving your questions or comments about
fitness or anti-aging. E-mail me at email@example.com
your good health,
