Staying fit while travelling

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping some if the more fitness- and health-conscious members can give me some advice here. At home I generally work out about three times per week, doing weight lifting and a Kettlebell boot camp. I'm also a beginner runner.

I'll be travelling to Europe this summer (happy new year btw, everyone!!) and I'll be backpacking and staying in hostels in Italy (Venice and Cinque Terre) and France (Paris and Nice) and staying with family in Austria.

I'm just wondering if any of you can give me some tips and advice about working out while travelling, both in terms of logistics and staying motivated. I'm thinking in Austria I'll do lots of hiking, and running is do-able pretty much anywhere...but my main concern is staying motivated and being able to complete really good, full body workouts, consistently and regularly.
