When you’re traveling, what do you look for in a hotel? Comfy feather beds and pillows? Proximity to great shopping and restaurants? A full-service business center?
Well, if you’re like me, you look for a place with great workout facilities. I’ve been known to change hotels if the one where I’m scheduled to stay doesn’t have a fitness center or access to a local club. Yes, it’s the Canyon Ranch way. But it’s also the Roxanne Housley way, because I gotta tell you, if I don’t get my workout in on the road, I don’t feel good otherwise. I’m more productive, happier, sleep better and have more energy.
When possible, I prefer outdoor exercise – walking, running, hiking, horseback riding, golf – and am not above lacing up the tennis shoes and walking my way through busy New York or a Chicago suburb. But sometimes weather (especially summer temps in Arizona) derail my best outdoor intentions, so I retreat inside where it is comfortable and practical.
Exercise is great for the body and clears the mind. Make the time.
Until next time,
