Easy Exercises for Vacation - Travel Fitness Diaries

I know I'm not the only one who gets a little self conscious in a hotel gym that has other people in it. Sometimes I will even avoid going to the gym if it means joining a muscular, body-builder type guy in the room. With that said, I'm here to help you if you struggle with the same thoughts.
