Your health is slipping away from you on the road…
According to a recent Hilton Hotels & Resorts survey, 58% of business travelers sacrifice sleep and wellness on business trips while 44% gain weight as a result of their travels.
…and it’s not your fault!
Because managing your health AND your travel isn’t easy.
You have enough tasks and decisions on your plate.
Because you’re tired.
Physical and mental fatigue leave you susceptible to poor eating decisions, skipped workouts, disrupted sleep, and anxiety.
Because you have no support.
Whether you travel with a team or alone, it’s hard to find a pal to motivate and inspire you to live a healthy lifestyle on the road.
Because you have no plan.
A solid training and diet plan is only one part of the equation. The other? Where, when, and how you’ll implement that plan away from home!
I want you to feel stronger and more empowered on the road, in your business, and in your personal life.
No matter what my career threw at me, I always made time for working out and eating well. I even trained for my second marathon while working three jobs seven days per week, and never missed a training session. So when I began traveling for work, I thought staying fit on the road would be a piece of cake.
I saw other consulting colleagues' health crumble due to stress, horrible airport food, lack of sleep, and weight gain. But I was convinced that wasn’t going to happen to me. So before my first business trip, I spent over an hour on TripAdvisor viewing hotel fitness room photos to make sure I found one that would suit my needs. Needless to say, after all of the time spent doing that and with all of the real work I still had to do, meal planning went straight out the window.
Travel fatigue and decision fatigue: The struggle is real!
Fitting in a decent workout was easy for me to a point, but I found that the hotel gyms often fell short of their photos. And while I usually began my work travel with a healthy breakfast and a small snack, a flurry of meetings, deadlines and tight schedules combined with zero planning, travel fatigue and decision fatigue produced a perfect storm. Before long, that energy would turn to exhaustion, and I would eat anything that crossed my path. (And after a few trips like this, it showed!)
After one particular travel week filled with endless meetings, room service, catered lunches, and conference socializing, I remember sitting on a plane at LaGuardia feeling tired, defeated, and out of tune with my body. “Man, I wish I would have planned that all better,” I said to myself. “But I just don’t have the time!”
Well now I have the time. And I want to give that time to you.
If you are anything like me, you are busy building a career - and a body - that will help you achieve your goals. My aim is to help you continue to do just that without making the same mistakes I made during my 3+ years of traveling for work. My goal is to help you save time, reduce stress, and demolish decision fatigue in order to crush the rigors of business travel and master your fitness on the road.
I don't believe you should have to choose between work travel and your health.
By painstakingly planning and troubleshooting your business travel, I can help you seamlessly maintain the fitness and the career you are working so hard to grow.
So talk to me: What do you struggle with the most on the road? I’d love to hear from you and see how we can work together to help you become Road Warrior Strong!
