Traveling? Try Cardio High To Go v1.0

M slider blurryCardio High To Go 1.0

Clients asked us to give them a workout for when they are traveling and can’t get to the gym. This workout can be done in a tiny space like a hotel room, and it all you need is 1 pair of sliders and a mini band – though you can do it without these pieces of gear.  If you can do it near a set of stairs, you can add stairs to help the cardio portion. The entire workout can be done in 20-30 minutes.

Please make sure you warm up before you start the intervals. If you feel any joint or muscle pain, STOP the movement that causes the pain – and remove it from your sequence. Add your favorite cool down stretches at the end.
