Traffic Workout: Objects in Mirror Will be Slimmer Than They Appear

Traffic Workout: Objects in Mirror Will be Slimmer Than They Appear

We hit traffic more than we hit the gym sometimes, so why not get a little workout with these 6 moves while sitting still behind the wheel? Whether on your way to work, or heading on vacation, this traffic workout will at least get your blood flowing, provide a stretch, and burn a few calories instead of wasting time.

Trainer’s tip: for safety, do these only in stand-​​still traffic, not while moving at a slow rate. You need to pay attention to the road first and foremost! You can also do this while waiting for your family to finish up at the rest stop! You can also do many of these moves as a passenger or on a flight using your tray. For a more intense travel workout, download the NikkiFitness Fit Travel Workout video (Amazon.)
