Fitness tips for business travellers: BUSINESS TRAVELLER NEWS


Business travellers sometimes find it hard to maintain a regular fitness regime so we're posting some tips to help you exercise while you're away. One of the advantages of one of our serviced apartments in Southampton is room –  room to spread out and follow your exercise regime in the privacy of your own home-from-home – with private shower facilities on-hand to refresh you after the work-out and fabulous marina views as you work your abs. So our fist tip is to suggest you bring along a few easy-to-pack pieces of exercise kit, a skipping rope, a yoga mat, hand grips and some resistance tubing are a good start – and if you're travelling by car then include a few hand weights too – with just these items you can easily create your own all-round fitness circuit. Warm up with some skipping and then work in exercises such as squats, lunges, press-ups, sit-ups, planks and bench presses. Alternatively use the apartment TV or your own computer/phone to find exercise and aerobics videos, or relax and stretch with some yoga. If running/jogging is your thing then the Southampton Marina area is a great place for a run, with brilliant views – and longer runs are a great way to discover the City of Southampton itself! Other easy fitness tips are to use the stairs, rather than the lift and to walk to work if possible.
