Last week was a bit bananas. Monday through Wednesday was spent in Boulder, then I went Thursday through Sunday in Austin. So I ate out for almost every single meal. I have to say…Boulder was way more impressive in the food department and that was super surprising. I’ve been to Austin probably 6 times now and every time I go, the food is amazing. This time, I was only impressed by ONE meal. One! But that was probably a blessing in disguise so I didn’t overeat constantly while traveling. That’s definitely always a struggle when food tastes so damn awesome.
Since I was traveling so much, I made sure to drop in at a couple gyms or stay active while walking and hiking. Whenever I’m traveling for work, I walk A LOT because I’m usually by myself and I like seeing the town and all the shops that you would most likely miss in a car. And a couple miles always seems doable when it’s nice outside. But if I’m traveling with a group who would say WTFFFFF when I made them walk two miles, I just stick to a car instead. So that meant dropping in at a couple gyms in Austin. I first stopped in at Crush Fitness Class because I’ve been to that gym a few times before during other Austin trips and I know I’ll always get a great workout in. But then a friend told me about Align studio which has boxing, yoga, barre and pilates. We dropped in for a boxing class and I’m SO EFFING GLAD WE DID.
Honestly, this class was probably one of the most fun and most effective workouts I’ve ever done! I was absolutely soaked during the workout, the instructor knew what she was doing and was incredibly inspiring, and I went from breathing hard to smiling over and over. It was so damn fun. I’m so bummed I didn’t have more time in Austin because I would have gone back multiple times. It was such an amazing workout. It makes me super bummed that I don’t know of any workouts/gym like that one in Denver.
This is proof that trying different gyms and workouts outside your comfort zone, especially while traveling, can be so eyeopening. I’m SO glad I dropped in at this amazing gym and it has me inspired to try new workouts! Don’t let travel hinder your fitness goals! Get after it no matter where you are!
