  • You may have a good fitness regimen at home, but if you have to travel for business or pleasure, it's easy to blow it off and take a vacation from fitness.
    But it's surprisingly simple and easy to stay in shape while traveling, says John Hacker, director of the fitness center at Ashland's Hidden Springs Wellness. You may think you need all those weights, balls and machines, but, well, they're expensive, heavy and impossible to schlepp around. Forget them.
    All you need is a motel room, carpeted floor and a chair — plus some willpower — for a workout that will burn the quadriceps, triceps and deltoids, making them sing for protein and veggies, which, by the way, you easily can carry on a trip.
