Joe Ballstaedt, CEO of Resorts West, says he takes advantage of opportunities to exercise whenever possible, even seemingly strange locations. “You may be that guy running laps around the parking lot, but fit guys don't stay fit by being timid.” If jogging around airport terminals isn’t your thing, pack a small, lightweight resistance band in your carryon to supplement simple floor exercises. Lunges, squats and crunches use body weight as resistance. They’ll keep your blood flowing and increase your heart rate—even a few sets in a quiet airport corner helps maintain your hard-earned fitness foundation.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
