The Travel Woes

The inevitable: traveling. It can be both a blessing and curse to the die-hard Crossfiter. When training on a consistent basis it is extremely important to not let traveling break that cycle.  Whether your travels are due to work or pure enjoyment, we can all admit searching for the closest box in proximity in hopes that we can get in some sort of functional movement for the day. Fortunately, an athlete can still manage to get a legitimate workout in without a Crossfit box. The following workouts require minimal, if any, equipment and can be completed in almost any environment:
