Wednesday Workout: 22 Minute Hotel Room Workout

Good morning! I am on a blogging ROLL this week! Go me! 😉 Continuing with the theme of short, bodyweight, take anywhere workouts, today’s workout was a result of my recent work trip to Atlanta. Although it was a work trip, I was able to make it somewhat personal, too, by getting to visit with my sister-in-law and her husband since they live across the street from our hotel (and my SIL’s husband manages a restaurant that we got to check out!) and by getting to hang out with my sister since she was in ATL for work, too!

We stayed at the Loews in Midtown which was a BEAUTIFUL hotel. The lobby and lobby bar were modern & chique, yet also inviting. The rooms were spacious with luxurious bathrooms and the gym! Oh, emm, gee. it was HUGE and had everything you could want or need, plus there was an Exhale Spa associated with the hotel so that just made it even more amazing.

But, back to the workout. As amazing as the gym was at the hotel, I never made it in for a workout. Womp, womp. I got there on Wednesday and after an early flight and full day on site, I chose getting unpacked and having a drink over a workout. On Thursday, I knew I wouldn’t want to workout after a day on site so I got up and squeezed in a quickie workout before the day. Sure, I could’ve gone to the gym, but that process would’ve added a good 20 minutes to the workout, which wasn’t something I was interested in doing at that hour. Hotel room workout for the win!

I created a bodyweight cardio aspect and then added in some bodyweight exercise circuits. It looked like this:

  • cardio blast
  • circuit 1 x3 rounds
  • cardio blast
  • circuit 2 x3 rounds
  • cardio blast
  • circuit 3 x3 rounds
  • cardio blast

I was done in about 22 minutes, including a 2 minute warm up – not too bad!

While I always love quickie workouts, they come in especially handy while traveling because that is a time when I really don’t want to have to spend unnecessary amounts of time in a gym – I’d much rather be out and about exploring!

I hope you try this on the rest of your summer travels – be sure to let me know if you do!

Questions for you: Have you done a lot of traveling this summer?
