Stay Fit While Traveling With These 4 Apps


By Takia McClendon

Every year, over 40 million Americans travel during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. During this same time, many of us lose track of our fitness and nutrition goals by skipping workouts and indulging on desserts and turkey leftovers. This year, we're giving you 4 of our favorite resources to help you stay fit during both holiday and business travel. Check them out below!

1. Nike Training Club App: Download the Nike Training Club App and get access to over 100 full body workouts inspired by top Nike athletes and designed by NTC Master Trainers, N+TC will help you track progress, stay motivated and train better. No excuses: squeeze a couple 5, 15, 30, or 45 minute NTC workouts in during your trip and enjoy guilt-free travel during the holiday weekend.Learn more about the Nike Training Club App here.

2. ClassPass: Extended stay in your future? Whether it's visiting family or traveling for business, finding out the best place to workout while you're away can be a tough decision (especially if you're strapped for cash). For $99 a month, ClassPass members get unlimited classes to use at studios in the ClassPass network. While a member can take as many classes per month as they’d like, they can only visit the same studio 3 times per month. Learn more about ClassPass here.

3. MINDBODY Connect: Looking for workouts near grandma's house? Download the MindBody Connect App to find out what fitness classes are being hosted nearby! The app displays times, instructors, and instructor bios. Use MINDBODY Connect to find it, book it instantly, and even pay—right from your phone. Download the app here.
