Travel and workouts

There are so many options for exercise while traveling. Of course my favorite exercise is when I am traveling for exercise. Let me explain. A Zumba Convention is four days packed with new choreography, new styles of dance and great music. I am up early, dressed for class and ready to workout at 7 am. A snack and a pause then I am on to another session. Then after a day of workouts there are benefit workouts and oarties like the Fitness Concert where we dance exercise for 2 hours! IDEA Convention is packed with new trends in workouts!
