Jeff Vincent: The Cardio-Happy Traveler

HIS CHALLENGE

Jeff is good about getting in his weekly cardio. “I run 20 to 40 minutes, three to four times a week.” That’s impressive in itself because this father of four is constantly shuttling children, attending various school activities, and on the road for work one or two days a week. When he’s finished with his cardio, Jeff treats strength training as an unstructured option. “When I do use the machines, it’s kind of random in both amount and frequency.” And that prevents progress.

OUR ADVICE

Jeff needs a few lessons on how to stay motivated while on the road. He’s good about getting in cardio but just needs to change his mind-set about strength training—frequent travel can actually work to his benefit there. He can use the hotel’s gym or rely on a few equipment-free moves that will have him feeling stronger soon.
