CrossFit Travel WOD – Smash It On The Road

I'm sure you'll agree being on the road whether it's for work or on a vacation can mean that you tend to slack off on both your diet and your workout routine. Arm yourself with a good travel wod and those excuses become fewer and fewer.

Some common excuses when on the road:

  • The gym at the hotel sucks​
  • There are too many distractions in the evening
  • The all you can eat buffet was well.... "all you can eat"
  • I don't have my regular training coach/partner

Travel WOD

Travel wods are either ones that can be done in a hotel gym with limited equipment or can be done anywhere you can find a small space in which you can do some bodyweight circuits.

Some suitable locations are:

  • Hotel gym
  • Hotel room(assuming there is space)
  • Hotel car park
  • Kids playground(with climbing bars etc)
  • Beach(many beaches have climbing bars and other exercise equipment)

Ultimately getting in a WOD whilst traveling is all about using your imagination.

It doesn't matter that you don't have access to barbells or kettlebells. As I'm sure your aware bodyweight circuits can flatten you if done at the right intensity for long enough so no more excuses when staying in a hotel.

All you need is your regular workout clothing and a pair of suitable CrossFit sneakers for a little extra stability on your feet.

Below is a list of travel WOD's that can help keep you on target when on the road!
