Travel WODs | What to do when you can’t reach the gym

Traveling doesn’t mean we have to miss our workout. In fact, it shouldn’t. There’s no excuse for not getting in a WOD, even while on the road. So we’ve compiled a list of 10 workouts you can do while traveling. The first five require no equipment at all, and the last five include only equipment that would likely be standard fare in a hotel fitness center.

At 6' 5", it may come as a surprise that Fran is in fact NOT his favorite workout, and burpees are NOT his favorite movement. It does, however, mean that every day is a new day to prove people who say "CrossFit isn't for tall people" -- wrong.
