Default Stay fit, while traveling.

Well I am traveling long-term, for work and i am staying in a resort with no fitness club facilities. How do i go about staying fit, while using the bare essential? Purchasing any equipment would be a so difficult, task because i have nowhere to put it and it would be a hassle to get rid, of when i have to leave.Any suggestions?

you could try bodyweight exercises and pick a number of exercises for legs,abs,upper body,arms,back etc then put them in circuit type workout.

buy a jump rope and some bands that will give you more options.

Some clubs also reciprocate other memberships- it is rare but it does happen.
You may also want to scout local flea markets / garage sales and find an old standard weight set. If it is cheap enough- you can toss it or donate it to good will when you leave.

Yep, bands and jump rope don't take a lot of space up, nor do they weigh alot, but give a great workout.

Bands can come in very heavy duty weightloading as well, and there are numerous ways to use them.

I would get some bands, a cheap draw-string bag to put them in, and work on developing a body weight routine to stay strong.

Are you staying in this single resort for a long time, or moving from place to place?

If your goals are fitness and not competition level body building or strength sports, you should be able to do very will with bands like BendtheBar suggested. Pushups, body weight squats, leg raises, crunches, etc can keep you from getting soft while on the road.
