The Jump Rope:Turn up the heat and watch the pounds melt away with this heart-pounding workout that can burn up to a whopping 350 calories in 30 minutes. Easy to throw in a suitcase and whip out in any hotel room.
Weighted Hula Hoops:
Made and sized for adults, hoops inspire all the nostalgic fun of childhood, while doling out an ab-blasting workout. Rings come in a dazzling assortment of psychedelic color combos, or just plain black for the low-key metrosexual. Check out collapsible hoops for super travel facile.
Work it with rubber tubes and elastic bands, easily foldable for any bag. Simply stick the anchor in a door jam and pull, pull, pull your way to cut bi-s and tri-s.
Weight / Strength Training:
Pick up a set of light weights for a couple of reps during downtime. Avoid paying overage charges at the airport with refillable water barbells, light as feathers for the jet-setters.
Improve your posture and strengthen your core while picking up some flirty, sensual new moves. Pack a DVD to learn from the masters and have yourself a blast movin' and shakin' all around.
Bend into a pretzel; lift, tuck and tone your way to a beautifully sculpted bod. No equipment necessary. Workout DVDs enhance the experience for beginners.
Sit-ups, Squats & Dips:
Sometimes, nothing beats the classics. Be sure to work all major muscle groups evenly. Squats and dips can be done on your own or, better yet, with a chair.
Ab Contour Exercise Belts:
It sounds too good to be true, we know. Wearing this belt while watching TV, with its vibrations and gyrations, supposedly chisels a fine set of abs for you. (We're skeptical but we know several guys with ridiculous washboards. They swear by the belt that it works...)
Better than nothing, no gear required. Get your heart rate up and feel the burn. Try ten minutes straight, it's harder than it sounds!
Bust a Move:
Flip on that iPod and spring into action! Bring Sexy Back, all you Single Ladies out there. Dance, bump and grind yourself into tip-top Beyonce shape. (Just don't forget to close the blinds if you're a little more modest than she!)
