Training & Eating on The Road, and Overcoming Adversity

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

overcoming adversityLast weekend, I was down in San Diego at the eleventh annual Fitness Business Summit, and I had an amazing time with some of my closest friends.

While there, it occurred to me how much I used to struggle with maintaining my training and nutrition on the road.

For some reason my workouts always sucked and my diet fell apart. But I’ve made a conscious effort to get a lot better at that.

Today, I’m going to share some tips and sample workouts that should help you out.

After I cover that, my good friends, Jay Jablonski and Craig Ballantyne join me to discuss bouncing back from adversity and overcoming shyness and insecurity.

I hope you enjoy it.

  • A trick for beating jet lag
  • How to modify your workouts on the road
  • What to do if the hotel gym only has light weights
  • The lightweight, essential training equipment for traveling
  • How to make bodyweight exercises harder
  • Conditioning workouts for fast fat loss

  • A super easy way to always have healthy food while traveling
