Sunday I leave for Italy to sing with my choir from St. James’s Episcopal Church in Venice, Florence and Rome. I plan on enjoying the culture, food, history and camaraderie with my fellow choristers. We’ll be living la dolce vita for 8 days, plus 2 travel days. Despite the miles of walking we’ll do, just thinking of going without a Zinger Fit workout from Kelly Kinzinger makes my jeans tighter. So, I asked Kelly to create a workout that can be done in a hotel room.
The exercises are simple to follow and require no additional equipment. Perhaps you have been looking for a travel fitness routine, or want to have a go-to plan you can do in the privacy of your home. Look no further than the Posse Fit-for-Travel Workout.
You will need:
- comfortable clothes (shorts and t-shirt)
- timing device – check out the Interval Timer app for the iPhone or iPad
- towel (for cushioning the floor for ab work)
Overview of the Workout
The workout consists of two circuits of exercises. Circuit 1 you can do 1-3 sets, finishing with the abdominal section. Circuit 2 you can do from 1 to 3 sets, with the “activities” done between sets.

My intentions are good, but I’m betting Alison will take a poll while I’m away to get opinions on whether I actually do this workout. I’ll be honest and report back my results.
