10 Travel WODs For Summer

Updated June 24, 2023

Are you ready for summer? Beach days and vacations await! But sticking to your exercise routine while traveling can be tough. You don’t want to lose the progress you’ve worked so hard for, and we all know how it feels when we return to the gym after a break (Do those weights feel heavier? Is this the warm-up or the actual workout?).

Finding a challenging workout without the support of your local CrossFit gym, barbells, and bumper-plates can be a challenge in itself. While most hotels have fitness centers, they usually don’t compare to your familiar gym setup. However, don’t worry! It is still possible to maintain your progress and push your physical limits even when you’re away from home.

Here are ten Travel WODs you can complete with just your body weight and a jump rope:


  • 2 min jog or jump rope

All of these workouts are high-intensity calorie burners and strength builders that don’t require anything fancier than a space-saving jump rope, pair of running shoes, and a little room to move. Choose your favorites, or mix them up. Since they each feature basic movements with little risk for injury, you could even get kids or travel companions to join in for extra motivation or even friendly competition. These WODs don’t take much time to complete, leaving you plenty of time to soak up the sun, schmooze with clients or take in the local sites. When the trip comes to an end and you return to your local box, you will be just as lean and mean as when you left, ready to tackle all the fitness challenges ahead.
