When teaching fitness is your job, and one that has you leading group classes a dozen or so times a week, it feels kind of like going on a "fit-cation" when life pulls you away from the regular schedule for a chance to work out solo.
This is where I find myself for a whole week, working from Miami for client events affiliated with my PR "day job." I miss my bootcamp students, clients and group fitness classes in Tallahassee something fierce - but admittedly, it's kind of nice to "break out" and work out for myself, by myself, and with no one BUT myself. I can do whatever I want, whenever I want, at whatever intensity I want.
I use these schedule breaks to push my body out of its comfort zone, to test out new routines for clients, and to just enjoy being fit.
The gym where I'm staying is simple - a few treadmills, a few ellipticals, an indoor bike, free weights, a decent set of machines. It's not a two-story fitness center mecca or even the kind of on-site gym you'd find at a resort hotel. But with a little creativity, even the most basic setup can be challenging.
Today's workout is a quickie that can be finished in 30 minutes or less. It mixes 3 cardio bursts on the treadmill with 3 sets of 3 different exercises. Because, as we know, great things come in 3's! It is perfect for a workout in the hotel gym or just to mix up your hometown gym routine.
So next time you find yourself facing the treadmill and thinking, boring, think again! I put myself through this one and it WILL break you out of any tedium ;)
