What do you guys do if you're living out of a hotel for a long time on business?
Usually hotels have gyms, or just take to the street and go running.
alot of gyms offer daily or weekly passes
I usually just ask or drive around and find a nearby gym.
Nutrition tends to be the hardest part to maintain on a business trip, not the training.
Gonna be hard to run outside when it's -20°C
I had thought about finding a local place. I'm afraid the gym at the hotel will blow ass. Fortunately there's a fridge in the room so I can attempt to eat well.
company pays for 3 meals a day = steaks and sushi. !!!
there is an organization that most gyms belong to, some international health and racket association. you can get a "passport" to work at other gyms fo free
Holy fuck. I just shivered thinking about it.
Got a link?
I think bringing a jump rope and those restraint bands on trips could help when you want to get a good sweat in but you don't want to have to drive around to find a gym.
Also, a lot of gyms will let you work out for a trial day to decide if you want to join. It would be a bit of a fib, I guess, but whatever.
no, ask your gym, they should be able to give it to you (assuming they are in the network)
if I don't have access to something to get in a decent workout I'll just do bodyweight stuff like one-leg squats, hindu squats, hindu pushups, handstand pushups, etc etc
La fitness FTW.
if i was going to be gone, i would ask around on forums, and see if anyone is near by.
its always nice to have things you can bring along. resistance bands, grippers. etc.
I would check out the possibility of buying some dumbbells from a local sports store, then returning them in a few weeks

I work in the Fitness Industry, btw.
Don't gyms in the US allow for casual visits?
I'll be going to London for a week on business next month.....what do I do?
I'll be in Canada from the US.
Thanks for the link. I found what looks like the perfect club... now I just have to talk them into a short-term membership that isn't outrageously expensive.
