— Happy Spring! ‘Tis the season of spring break and vacations! No need to worry, though, you can still get your “fit on” while traveling without any equipment or shoes (for those traveling to the beach).

Below are a few of the workouts you, yes you, can do. Go ahead, kick your shoes off, slather on the Maui Babe tanning oil and get fit. It is, after all, bikini season.

Remember, by the time you think about doing your workout, it could be over. And as the famous saying goes: “I totally regret that workout,” said no one ever.

Rise and shine, get these workouts done before you even have time to do anything else. Don’t forget to warm-up and cool down. Try a little yoga after your workout to unwind and get in vacation mode.

Workout #1:

10-1 — That’s right, 10 of each, 9 of each, 8 of each. You get the picture.

Burpees and Sit-ups

Note: You can be done before the kids are up.

Workout #2:


Push-ups and walking lunges with one minute plank between sets.

Note: You will feel much better about a “nooner” happy hour.

Workout #3:

Do this for 20 minutes.

5 jump squats, 10 hollow rocks then 15 jumping jacks.

Note: You will feel more comfortable at pool time.

Workout #4:

Great for road trips and gas station stops.

Find a park bench, curb or set of stairs.


Jumps, lunges, single leg squats and seated knees to chest.

Note: You will feel better about gas station snacks (or your own snacks)

Workout #5:

Bring a jump rope. Don’t have one? Pretend you do!

Do 10, 200 meter sprints with 100 jumps in between.

Break: 100 sit-ups

Your new toned body will thank you.

Yoga cool down:

8 minutes of mobility training topped off with a little zen.

Do 30 seconds in each pose. Then repeat.

So, it is just that easy. You now have the tools needed to stay fit on vacation with little to no equipment. Kick back, relax and do some burpees.

Happy Spring and happy travels! For those of you staying home, all of these workouts can be done in the comfort of your own living room, bikini, umbrella drink, zen and all.
