It's tough to stay fit while traveling.
It doesn't matter what kind of fitness routine you have at home. Everything is up in the air when you're in airports, hotels, conferences, meetings, sightseeing or visiting friends and family. To make matters even worse, most hotels do not have gyms – at least not legit ones. This doesn't mean that you have to put your fitness on hold when you travel.
In fact, it's the perfect time to get in great shape. You just need the right information.
Fittest Travel was started with one mission: to help you maintain a fitness routine away from home. We consult with hotels on how to improve their fitness options and give travelers a resource to learn about the things they need to know to stay fit on the road.
