It’s hard enough to maintain a fitness routine with your regular schedule. But it’s even more difficult when you throw work travel into the mix. Just when it seems like your exercise regimen is totally locked in, BOOM, you’re off to Omaha for a 3-day conference…or stuck in Seattle at week-long sales meeting.
Today on the podcast, Tim Liu shares how you can defy the odds and still manage to stay fit while traveling. Tim and I discuss how mindset can play a huge part in setting you up for success. We also talk about how a little planning can go a long way, how you can still work out even without a gym, the best ways to eat healthy while on the road, and much more.
When you’re always on the run, whether you’re driving to an offsite or flying out to a different city…it’s hard to get into a steady rhythm and make progress with your health and fitness.”
Tim Liu is an online fitness and nutrition coach based out in Los Angeles. He first got into health and fitness after growing up overweight and seeing his mother pass away from stomach cancer. This inspired him to not only improve his own health, but to help others as well. Since 2009 he’s been helping busy professionals and executives build muscle and lose fat without having to live in the gym.
Tim is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through NSCA and is a Certified Nutrition Coach through Precision Nutrition, one of the most respected nutrition coaching programs in the world. He helps his clients achieve their goals in a long term, sustainable way so their results last for life. He believes that fitness should enhance your life, not consume it.
