(Jump right to the Crossfit Travel WODs List)

Being away from our home gym, our daily routine that reinforces fitness, and not having a workout to jump right into can kill motivation a bit at a time leading us to let that fitness we worked so hard for and feels so good, fall by the wayside.

Lucky for us, Crossfit gyms and functional fitness coaches have created hundreds of travel WODs that are easy to do with little or no equipment – and – will maintain our strength, stamina, and sexy for the adventures to come.

Read on for my favorite travel workouts, designed to be done anywhere from hotel rooms, to parks, to beaches, that’ll help you stay fit wherever your travels take you

Types of Travel WODs


Tips for staying fit to travel

  1. Just get out there
  2. Find a pull up bar and dip bar for a balanced workout
  3. Focus on getting your heart rate up and calories, then strength training
  4. Aim for parks and green spaces
  5. Learn to use your backpack
  6. When time is short, pick the HIITs for maximum effect and minimal time
  7. If time is scarce, squeeze in a workout over the day, bits at a time
  8. If all else fails, stick with the staples: air squats, lunges, push-ups, pull ups, and burpees
  9. Don’t forget stretching, mobility, and isometrics (stationary poses)
  10. If you don’t know what an exercise is, hit the Google!
