Indoor Workouts for Thanksgiving Travels

Nov 25, 2010

Written by Chris Powell, Personal Trainer @ O2 Fitness Falls/540

So, you're out of town for Thanksgiving?

That’s NO reason to get set back on your path towards a healthier you!  We all know it's hard enough to find time to exercise with our regular daily schedules, but finding time to fit a gym session in while visiting the in-laws is just near impossible.

So, what can you do to squeeze in a workout? Well, let’s forget the machines and dumbbells for a day and get back to basics!

There is nothing like a good morning jog to get the metabolism started before a day filled of turkey and stuffing.  If indoors is your only option, then let’s start with:

  • Jumping jacks to get that heart rate up,
  • Followed by 10 pushups,
  • A plank hold for 60 seconds,
  • 20 body weight lunges,
  • 10 burpees (see image on the right),
  • 10 body weight squats,
  • and 40 mountain climbers

Repeat as needed and you won’t be feeling as guilty when you put that favorite Thanksgiving dish of yours on your plate!
