Luxury travel tip – use your weights

Small weights, ideal for strength training

Small weights, ideal for strength training

Simply Sunday.  One of the most aware people in the travel business, the gal’s good friend John Wallis at Hyatt, says most people put on at least a couple of pounds when travelling.  Working out is therefore essential.  If ONLY gyms everywhere would give lots of little weights, not those heavy things used by male steroid-fulled weightlifters, but small ones that just tone muscles, perhaps à la Michelle Obama. Actually, I have found the ideal answer.  I travel with a couple of empty water bottles.  Without any liquid they are allowed through airport security.  Once in the hotel, I fill them up with tap water and, hey presto, immediate weights are to hand, and in my hands.  Toned muscles, here I come.
