This month, we’ve covered a few different topics about healthy travel. We’ve bought you all sorts of different ways to try and stay fit and healthy whilst you’re on holidays, given you tips on how to pack smart for long-haul flights, reasons as to why exercising should be the first thing you should do when you get off the plane (LOL) and rounded up the styles you need for each destination, just to name a few.
Here, Ryderwear athlete and fitness enthusiast, Camilla Akerberg has shared with us her favourite do-anywhere workout circuit. We love it because it a) doesn’t require any equipment and b) it can be completed in under 20 minutes which leaves time for more important things like cocktail hour. Oh, and it’s guaranteed to get your heart racing like no-one’s business.

Other than training harder and doing MORE REPS in the amount of time you are training, try increasing intensity instead:
OPTION 1: Add weights to your routine! Bottles of water, your heaviest shoes, any resistance equipment you might have taken along with you.
OPTION 2: Increase each exercise time to 30 seconds!
OPTION 3: Perform each circuit 4 times.
