Competitor Staff Tackling 30-Day Fitness Challenge

Not a bad setup for a hotel gym, as Jason Devaney discovered on Tuesday.

Day 15: Tuesday, January 21

Brian Metzler, Editor-in-Chief:  I am heading to the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City this week but was happy to get on the spin bike for 55 minutes before my morning flight.

Mario Fraioli, Senior Editor: After a busy morning of work, I pulled the not-often-attempted afternoon double. I got out for a solo 45-minute run around 2:30 PM, and followed that up with another 45 minutes at around 7 PM with my wife after she got home from work. Kept the effort level easy on both runs.

Caitlyn Pilkington, Associate Editor: I got creative with my ab exercises and decided to tweak them so I could simultaneously elevate my foot. I spent 30 minutes doing that, and some of them were actually better with that added challenge!

Jason Devaney, Associate Web Editor: I’m on the road for a work trip and was stuck in my hotel Tuesday night. Luckily there was a decent gym (for a hotel) so I was able to get in a half hour strength session. I followed it with some foam rolling – who knew the hotel would have foam rollers?!

Allison Pattillo, Contributing Editor: Today was literally a day of fitting in movement on the run. I took the steps instead of elevators or escalators, looked for parking spots farther away from my destinations and walked when I could. I also did about 30 minutes of stretching, sun salutations and floor work (pedestal routine, crunches, plank, burpees) in my hotel room.
