Whether you don’t have the time or the energy to get to the gym or your traveling and only have your hotel room to work with, you can still get your heart rate up using these fitness apps.


Classpass GO

With Classpass, users can find nearby gyms and classes to jump into for a workout session, almost anywhere they are. Prices vary by subscription, but a free workout at home or in your hotel room is right up Classpass Go’s alley. Just download the app and scroll through workouts that interest you and get sweating.



While a Peloton bike definitely doesn’t travel well, the app will. Download the Peloton digital app for workouts, motivation and different exercises you can do in the hotel gym, room or at home. Hop on the hotel gym’s bike and ride just like you’re on the fancy machine by the same name.


7 Minute Workout

It’s basically all in the name with this one. Search through seven-minute workouts you can do anywhere and never miss a chance for a quick workout. It’s hard to say no when it’s only seven minutes. It can be a great way to destress and get your heart racing between flights, on your lunch break or just at home when you don’t feel like doing anything at all.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.

Inexpensive European Ski Destinations

Winter isn’t quite over, especially high in the Alps and Pyrenees, two of Europe’s main mountain ranges for skiing. Catch a flight to one of these locations for some last-minute seasonal skiing on a budget.

Staying Safe in the Danakil Depression

The Danakil Depression has been described as hell on Earth. Considered the hottest place on the planet, the nightmare conditions of the Depression led to some incredibly fascinating formations. If you can withstand the climate, it offers a unique adventure few have ever seen.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
