Traveling can be extremely enjoyable in small doses, but extended periods on the move can undoubtedly wreak havoc on you, both mentally and physically. One way to keep your spirits and energy levels up while you are on the road is to make some time for exercise each day. Exercise releases endorphins in your brain, feel-good hormones that leave you feeling recharged and ready to face the day as it may be. But the problem with traveling is that sometimes there is no gym in sight, and even if there was, you can’t keep paying for membership everywhere you go, can you? Our Chicago ground transportation service, therefore, recommends incorporating some easy-to-do exercises in your daily routine, exercises that you can do in the comfort of your hotel room. Read on to find out what these are.

We also recommend contracting our Chicago limo for all your transportation needs during your travels. One of the most exhausting and draining aspects of travel is to drag around heavy luggage while simultaneously trying to navigate and find your way through an unfamiliar city/town. With a reliable concierge car service like ours, however, you don’t have to worry about all this. Our reliable chauffeurs will be there to pick you at your terminus the minute you arrive, assist you with your luggage, and transfer you to any destination of your choosing in a safe, comfortable, and expedient manner. All you have to do is sit back, relax, enjoy the luxury amenities of our vehicles, catch up on some work, or even get some sleep, and you will be at your destination before you know it.

Now, without further ado, here are a few exercises you can get done in the comfort of your hotel room.


Pushups are a simple yet effective exercise. Unfortunately, a lot of people have adopted the mentality that you are only getting effective exercise done if you are lifting weights; ‘no pain, no gain’. While this may be true to a certain extent, we are also assuming that you have not tried doing 100 pushups in a single day. Remember, when it comes to exercise it is quality, not quantity, that matters. So, get down and get to pumping.


Simple body-weight squats are an extremely effective way to combine cardiovascular and strength exercises. Not convinced?  Why don’t you try doing 100 body-weight squats then we can resume this discussion; we guarantee that you will feel the strain in your muscles the next day. Again, quality over quantity.


If you want to maintain toned abs on the road, amidst all the binge drinking and eating, we recommend trying Pilates. This is the perfect exercise for flexibility, posture, back & core strength, improving stamina, and boosting blood circulation.

There are so many opportunities to stay active and fit while traveling. And don’t forget to stay hydrated and eat well. And when you need reliable transportation, count on us!

We gave you the best tips to stay fit and healthy while traveling, but if your trips includes a lot of work, check the blog post published by our Bronx car service friends at Islip Limo – 3 Easy Ways to Work from Anywhere and find out how you can combine work with pleasure when you are away from home.
