Before going on your trip, check to see if there are local gyms nearby or if your hotel has access to its own gym. Many gyms have day passes that you can use to stay in shape.
 

Pack Fitness Gear


 

Don’t forget to pack some light but effective workout gear! Training shoes, lightweight clothes, resistance bands, jump rope, and even a yoga mat can fit in your suitcase with small adjustments.
