NorCal CrossFit Mar. 10th 2014

 

Coach Chris took our coaches through some running coaching development this weekend. They learnt a lot and will be sharing their new found running knowledge with you all soon!

 

Travel Fit!

I have spent A LOT of 2014 so far on the road, so I have gained some insight into how to make the lifestyle I have chosen to live work, even when I am far from my home at NorCal CrossFit.

Despite popular belief (or what seems to be popular belief based on the state of most people I see at the airport and in hotels these days), working out when you travel IS, in fact, possible.

Let’s talk about why traveling is NO excuse to forgo training, especially now that you are a member of this beloved CrossFit community.

The best option is to find a local affiliate wherever you are traveling to. In my opinion, the coolest part about this worldwide community is the fact that no matter where you go (seriously almost anywhere), you can find a gym, and the members of that gym will almost always welcome you in with open arms.

Check out this cool affiliate finder map to find a gym anywhere you go!

When you travel, check out websites of gyms in town, ask the coaches at your gym for recommendation, or shoot me a comment for suggestions. I have been to a lot of gyms over the past couple of years.

If you’re strapped for time, though, you can always get a quick hotel workout in. Most hotels have a treadmill and some free weights. When I was in Vegas last week with only about 30 minutes to spare, I made my way to the hotel gym, where I found treadmills, free weights, and even kettle bells! Here is what I did:

8 rounds for time:

30 second sprint on the treadmill

8 dumbbell thrusters

Then, 3 rounds not for time:

5 Turkish get-ups per arm

8 dumbbell bench press

I have to admit that I enjoyed the weird looks from the others in the very busy fitness center. And it’s even better meeting eyes with someone who “gets it.” I love running into other CrossFitters in environments like this. If you see those Nanos, Inov8s or CrossFit t-shirt, it’s like you have an instant friend.

Learn to enjoy staying fit when you travel, and always feel free to ask a coach for some traveling tips or workouts to do on the road!
