I moved to South America a couple weeks ago.
And as I’m soaking up the sun here in Quito, I can’t help but notice what a huge impact daily sunlight exposure has on my mood and energy levels.
I feel incredible. Life is good.
Do yourself a favor and spend more time outside. Your body will thank you.
Now, the sun here is ruthless, so if you don’t plan on being burned alive, I recommend you cover up as best as you can before stepping out the door or apply sunblock liberally and limit direct sun exposure.
But since this is not a sales letter for skin care products, I’d like to tell you how to get in spectacular shape while traveling the world.
I know a lot of you are thinking that frequent traveling will waste your chances of ever looking good naked. But that’s an old wives’ tale if anything.
You can lose fat and build rock-hard muscle no matter where you are. But it’s going to take some effort on your part (bummer, I know).
Whether I’m on the go or not, I always make time for training, I always make sure to fuel my body with the right foods (i.e. steak and ice cream), and I always stay on top of my game.
(By “always” I mean most of the time)
But for 9.86 out of 10 people, that’s not the case. When they’re on the road, all bets are off. (Especially on holiday or business trips… bring on the fried stuff, candy, booze, coke and hookers… wait what?).
Often times you’ll hear those folks cry about not having access to a gym, nor the necessary time to get their workouts in while traveling.
Boo hoo, Sally.
If you weren’t such a weak-willed wimp, you’d know getting jacked is not a matter of timezone or coordinates. It’s a matter of wanting it bad enough.
Where there’s a will…
As a frequent traveller, you will need a fitness game plan you can follow anytime and anyplace.
If you’re serious about getting results period, you’ll need a game plan you can follow anytime and anyplace.
A plan that will enrich your time on this earth, not consume it.
No need for gyms, magic pills, plastic dishes or hours of training every day. What you need is a handful of exercises you can perform anywhere – your hotel room, a neighborhood park or an elevator.
Luckily for you, it’s very simple (it was never complicated to begin with).
When I travel to a novel destination, I always look for workout parks or outdoor gyms online. And that’s precisely how I found some of the most badass training spots around the world.
I also recommend checking out random parks in your area. You’d be surprised how many of them are equipped for war.
If you’re into lifting iron, check out the gyms in your area. Look at pictures of facilities in question, read reviews and pick a good spot to get your workouts in. Easy peasy.
If all else fails, keep in mind you can always get in a solid workout in your hotel room. Push-ups, squats, back bridges and sit-ups. That is all anyone ever needed to build a spectacular body.
The fact that you think you need weights or machines to get anything done just goes to show how successfully the fitness industry has brainwashed you.
Workout equipment is a luxury, not a necessity.
Get down on the floor and do the work.

“What about my diet, though? How do I stay on track while traveling?”
Proper nutrition requires a little more thinking on your part.
Well, not really.
It’s a cakewalk once you understand the principles of weight management:
- Control your calorie intake
- Eat enough protein (less than you think)
While it won’t be difficult to find the time for a quick and intense workout (no matter how busy you think you are), eating good food on the go can be a bit more challenging.
Make no mistake about it, fueling your body isn’t complicated or hard by any stretch of the imagination.
The supplement companies want you to think it is. They want you to think you need supplements, shakes and meal replacement bars to stay on top of your nutrition.
They want you to believe the man-made shit sold as “health food” is the answer to your six pack prayers.
The truth, however, is your great-grandparents ate better than most meatheads today.
They ate real food, and very little of the industrial junk dominating our diets.
They ate earth-grown food fit for human consumption. Food that builds prosperous health and bulging biceps.
- Meat and fish
- Dairy and Eggs
- Whole grains
- Fruits and vegetables
- Nuts and seeds
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that this is what your body needs to operate at full capacity.
Fortunately, you can find these items in the most remote areas of the world. No need for health food stores or meal delivery services.
Steer clear of industrial food products (i.e. anything that comes in a box, can or plastic wrapper) and give your body what it needs – REAL FOOD.
If man made it, don’t eat it. – Jack LaLanne
Eat 3 meals a day if you want to maintain your weight or build muscle.
Eat 2 meals a day if you want to lose weight (without having to count calories or macronutrients).
If you follow these rules, your results are guaranteed. And remember what the doctor said:
“Two whole-food based meals a day keep the love handles away.” – Dr. Vic (not an actual doctor)
It is literally as simple as that.
Don’t look for excuses to justify your laziness and lack of discipline.
Don’t tell me it can’t be done. It can be done. And now you have the tools to get it done.
