Vacations make the perfect excuse to eat anything—no, everything—I want. And though it is always worth it, I usually end up packing on a couple of pounds.


While maintaining your weight on vacation is a challenge, they aren’t mutually exclusive. On my next vacation, I took the Active Resistance Tube Trainer along with me. That way, I could enjoy (A.K.A., eat to my heart’s content) and keep my weight in check. This lightweight piece of equipment includes tubes with handles in various weight options. Plus, I could use it anywhere: in my hotel room, outdoors, literally ANYWHERE.

Curious how? Here’s my complete workout using just the resistance loops. In just 30 minutes, you can torch major calories and of course, “enjoy” your vacation, too!

SQUATS



Stand on the loop with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width. Keep the handles at shoulder height. Squat down, pressing your knees over your toes. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets.

STANDING ABDUCTION



Anchor the loop. Attach the other end to your ankle. Kick your leg out to the side. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets on each side.

STANDING KICKBACKS



Anchor the loop. Attach the other end to your ankle. Kick your leg behind you, with your other leg planted firmly on the floor. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets on each side.

ROW



Anchor the loop. Pull the handles towards you until your arms form a 90-degree angle. Slowly release the loop. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets.

CHEST PRESS



Anchor the loop. Press the handles away from your chest and shoulders. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets.

CORE TWIST



Anchor the loop. Hold one handle with your hands at chest level. With arms extended, twist your torso away from the anchor. Perform 10 to 12 repetitions for 3 sets on each side.
