5 QUICK TRAVEL WORKOUTS
Without access to your usual gym or exercise equipment, you might assume working out isn’t an option while on vacation. In reality, there are plenty of no-equipment workout sessions you can do in 20 minutes or less right from your hotel room. Give these five quick travel workouts a try!

Focus on your glutes with this three-move workout:

10-Minute Full-Body Hotel Workout
Want to focus on more than just your glutes? This full-body workout takes just 10 minutes! Since it’s a low-intensity routine, you won’t break much of a sweat, which is good news if you’ve already gotten ready for the day. Here’s what to do:

Do each move for two minutes, followed by a 30-second rest.
