6 Weeks of Backpacker Fitness: A few observations

6 Weeks of Backpacker Fitness: A few observations

If you read my latest postcard, you’ll be well aware that I spent a large proportion of my time in Laos sick, in bed. During this time, I was, quite understandably, not contributing to my Travel Fitness Workout Log. I had a good couple of weeks away from the gym, to allow myself to get back to normal.

Instead, I started writing this observation post. I’m not talking bodily observations as such. I certainly can’t remember the last time I stepped on a pair of scales. It’s just a few things I’ve noticed about my routine, attitude and fitness levels since leaving London.

Travel Fitness Log: Workout #6 (Bangkok)

Travel Fitness Log: Workout #6 (Bangkok)

This workout feels like a very long time ago! I’ve had it saved on my phone for a good couple of weeks now but wifi issues, and generally being busy travelling around has meant that it joined the backlog of workouts to be uploaded.

The ‘gym’ that we had in our Bangkok apartment complex didn’t have a vast amount of equipment, but neither Tom or I really minded. With stunning views of the Bangkok skyline from the 53rd floor, we were perfectly content with the yoga mats, Swiss balls and TRX provided.

An Introduction to my Travel Fitness Workout Log

An Introduction to my Travel Fitness Workout Log

Welcome to FlexFit’s travel fitness workout log! This is where I’ll be keeping of all (well, most) of my workouts whilst Tom and I are travelling around Asia and Australasia.

Before we left, people kept asking me how I was going to keep up with my training whilst travelling, and to be honest I never really knew how to answer. It was just as much a mystery to me as it was to them.

All I knew was that as two Personal Trainers, who spent our London lives counting macros and making programmes, addicted to protein and peanut butter and slaves to the squat rack – we were not going to do without. We’d find a way to train.

So this will be a bit of an experiment to find out how we manage. Whether it’s a hiit workout on the beach, a trek through the jungle or even a Thai boxing class, this is the place to see how we manage to adapt our training to suit our new backpacker lifestyle.

And if we can do it, anyone can. So, enjoy – you can read the very first workout right here.
