Getting in a workout while traveling is not easy but there are ways to get it done. PUMA Trainer, Angela Parker, shines light on how to get in a workout, even during the most hectic travel schedules.

Transform your hotel room into "your own little fitness mecca," says Angela. In just 20 minutes of high-intensity interval training, you can achieve a full-body workout that'll leave you sweaty -- and feeling accomplished. ("The thing that people have gotten into their heads is that if they don’t have an hour they can’t do it. Not true.") Oh, it must be in the morning. Says Angela, "It has to be in the morning, or it doesn't happen."

Time yourself: 50 seconds on and 10 seconds off, nonstop for the full 20 minutes. The key? "Every 50 seconds you’re doing a move that is significantly challenging." Think 50 seconds holding a plank, then a 10 second break. 50 seconds of jumping jacks, with 10 seconds off. Burpees for 50 seconds, then 10 seconds of rest. Push-ups and squats work, too. Her only other note? "You cannot turn on the television. The television will suck the life out of your brain."

Angela's other favorite travel tip? Sightsee on foot. "I love doing a run in the morning in a place that’s new because it allows me to see things I’ve never seen before." For non-runners? It's as simple as walking instead of taking a cab.
