It’s hard enough to try to exercise when you are traveling. Most of the time when we are on the road we’ll just hit the fitness center. However, not every hotel has a fitness center and the ones that do may have limited hours that just don’t work with our schedule. However, you don’t have to give up your workout. Even in a small hotel room, there are some exercises you can do. Here are five small space workouts recommended by our private trainers that can keep you on track no matter where you are:
 
1. Squats: Squats are one of the best workouts you can do to tone muscle. They work out the muscles of the thighs, hips, and buttocks. To do a basic squat, stand straight with your feet hip-width apart. Tighten your stomach muscles, and lower your body down like you are sitting in a chair. Hold this position, then straighten your legs and stand again. You can raise your arms up, keep them by your side, or hold them out straight. Repeat for 15-20 reps.
 
2. Lunges: Lunges also work the muscle groups of the hips, thighs, and buttocks. Start by standing with your feet about six inches apart with toes pointed forward. Take a deep breath and step forward with one leg and lower your body 90 degrees at both knees while exhaling. Hold and return to standing position. Repeat on the other side. Do 15-20 reps on each side.
 
3. Punches: Punches are a great way to workout your upper body in a small space without weights. Punches work the arms, shoulders, and back muscles. Start with your feet shoulder width apart with the dominant foot a little forward to hold your balance. Bend your knees slightly and pull your arm up in front of your face. Then make a fist with one hand and punch forward, slighting rotating shoulder, and turning your torso. Repeat on the other side. Do 30 reps for each side.
 
4. Knee Lifts: This exercise is great for building core strength. Start by sitting on the edge of the bed. Place your feet flat on the ground in front of you. Keep your back straight, then lift your knees to bring your feet off the ground. Hold for 30 seconds. You should feel your stomach, back, and hamstring muscles straining. Repeat for 15-20 reps.
