Working out while on the road can be tricky. Some hotel fitness centers offer unreliable hours or don’t provide the caliber of equipment of your usual workouts. There is plenty of fitness apps available, offering an alternative to a gym workout, that you can use from the comfort of your hotel room. These are our favorites.

7 Minute Workout Challenge

Perform 12 different exercises in intervals of 30 seconds, with rest in between for an efficient, effective workout. Exercises require no equipment and can be completed anywhere.


12 Minute Athlete

The app highlights a high-intensity workout regimen, perfect for the traveler short on time. View brief video demonstrations of core, cardio, strength and interval training. The latest version offers an entire section devoted to hotel room workouts.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.
