Not going to be home for the holidays? No problem! There’s no reason you can’t stick with your exercise plan even while you’re on the road—especially if you plan ahead.

Here are five travel-friendly workouts you can do almost anywhere:

1. 1-Mile Fast Interval Walk
Winter weather and a new city don’t always make for the best scenario for your regular outdoor walking plan. This indoor interval walk is a great option for travelers—just press play to start walking one mile inside at any time of day or night.

5. 9-Minute Standing Abs
Want to work your waistline but don’t want to get down on the dirty hotel carpet to do it? This workout uses a single hand towel to target key core muscles in your abs and back—without having to get on the ground once. An added bonus: Your heart rate will stay elevated throughout the routine so you’ll burn more calories than you would with standard crunches.
