Packing is one of those things where logic doesn’t seem to fully apply. We’ll force 438 different swimsuits into our luggage like our lives depend on it, yet cringe at making space for any workout gear. (Our kingdom for Hermione Granger’s charmed purse.) While it’s more than OK to take a break from working out while on vacation, it can be good—especially for motivation—to incorporate some sort of workout into our travel itinerary.
With that in mind, we went and found our favorite quick workouts that are suited for traveling. Meaning—they don’t take up a lot of time (that could be spent sunning by the pool), and they can be done with minimal or no equipment (more room for swimsuits). Check them out below.
