vacationAre you going on a work trip or taking a vacation? No need to get out of the habit of working out! Most CrossFit gyms will let you drop in as a visitor — you can search for affiliates with the CrossFit Affiliate Finder.

If there’s nothing convenient, or you’re not going to be able to fit a class into your schedule, here are some ideas for things you can do in a hotel room, basic hotel gym, or outdoors!
