Lululemon hosts community classes (yoga, barre, and more) and events (run clubs, hikes) all over the world.

Just Add Yoga combines yoga with wine or beer in and around Seattle. Searching for yoga and beer and the city you are traveling to will likely help you find something similar wherever you are!

Community yoga classes/yoga in the park (like Summer at SAM in Seattle)

Find a spin class or join in on water aerobics! Drop in on an Orange Theory Fitness class (currently in 17 countries) or use ClassPass to find a studio for any kind of workout in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia.

To combine working out with being social and meeting new people in a new city, try Meetup or November Project.

Finally, for a quick and dirty workout in the comfort of your hotel room/hostel/AirBNB, check out Daily BurnTone It Up, or Megan’s Sweat Anywhere Pinterest board for quick workouts you can do to get moving before enjoy the rest of your day!

Here’s an article from Nomadic Matt and Steve from Nerd Fitness about staying fit while traveling.
