Elevate's Top 10 Hotel and Travel WODs

The Best Hotel and Travel Workouts with Little or No Equipment!

Don’t let your travels get in the way of staying consistent with your progress at the gym. With a little creativity, you can create a workout anywhere you go. Whether you have a hotel fitness center with just a couple of dumbbells or just your room with a floor, a bed, and a chair --- here are some of our favorite hotel and travel workouts.

Depending on time/space restraints you could modify the time, rounds, or reps to create the best version of these workouts for the situation. Here are 5 workouts that don’t require any equipment, plus another 5 with equipment. Bring your own jump rope with you to spice any of these up!

Top 5 Travel WODs WITH Equipment

Most hotels will have some dumbbells to use. Otherwise, pack your jump rope in your luggage and get to work on some of these gems!

  1. “Annie” - Reps of 50-40-30-20-10 of Double Unders and Sit-Ups. Annie is an old CrossFit favorite and is great because you could easily add an exercise like air squats or substitute something for Sit-Ups (push-ups, squats, lunges, etc). If you can't do double-unders, triple the reps for single jump rope reps. *Equipment required: jump rope.

  2. 10 Min AMRAP: 10 Dumbbell Snatches (alternating arms each rep), 10 Goblet Squats w/ dumbbell, 10 Push-Ups. *Equipment required: one heavy dumbbell or kettlebell.

  3. Reps of 30-20-10 for time: Dumbbell Thrusters and Burpees. After each set of reps (30s, 20s, 10s) run 400m on the street or treadmill. *Equipment required: dumbbells.

  4. 50 Man Makers for Time. (See Demo Video Here) *Equipment required: dumbbells.

  5. For 20 minutes, every 2 minutes complete the following complex with a pair of dumbbells: 7 Romanian Deadlifts, 7 Hang Power Cleans, 7 Push Presses. Since this is done every two minutes, you'll rest after the complex is done until the next 2 minute block begins. *Equipment needed: dumbbells or kettlebells.
