Keep a Fitness Plan on Track When Traveling
For business or for pleasure, traveling is always hard on the body. For many of us we thrive on routine, so when that routine gets thrown out, things take a turn for the worse.

Then by the end we feel as though the weeks and months of hard work training and dieting have gone down the pan.Unfortunately for many corporate travel can be part of the job description. And for holiday makers it’s a chance to let loose from work and most of life’s responsibilities. Either way both travel for business purposes, or for pleasure have some things in common. Similar obstacles and often unwanted weight gain at the end of it are things to look forward to.

No excuses.
