What’s your go to Road Trip & Airport travel workouts and stretches before a vacation?

Hey! I'm Natalie and I live in North Carolina. I'm a single mama of four awesome kiddos. These are my thoughts on life, motherhood, fitness and everything in between.


  • Wendy

    These are great tips for long road trips. I get very stiff and sore after being in the car for a long time. I usually need to stop every two hours and walk but now I can add in some jumping jacks and other stretches to help.

  • Rachel

    Well if I am honest, I try to avoid working out most of the time. I am always somehow motivated to be active in the airport. Maybe it is knowing that I am about to be fully cramped up on the plane. I end up doing odd lunges while waiting.

  • Ronnie

    I am the worst at keeping fit during my travel… all the good food and restless activity from tourist activity to tourist activity burns me out. But then I end up feeling guilty because I need to continue working out and keeping healthy and fit. I gain so much weight when I travel. :p Thanks for the great idea of using an app and for all the interesting stretching and workouts for the road!
