As a business traveler, do you ever feel like you’re leading a double life? One at home and the other up in the air? Work commitments, travel plans, family outings—not to mention theorganization of all of the above—can cause unwanted stress. Fortunately, the right tools can help you wade through the chaos and arrive on the other side, on timeandunscathed. Here are some of my favorite apps to help you manage your life when you’re always on the road.
For managing your fitness regimen

Peloton—the at-home cycling workout taking the US by storm—offers sweat sessions wherever you are.

Peloton also partners with select hotels to provide in-room bikes to guests during their stay—an ideal scenario for the time-crunched business traveler.

Try a group workout!Orangetheory Fitnessoffers the ability to work out in your home studio while also booking classes through the OTF app at more than 1,000+ other studios around the world, too. And while I can’t promise you your favorite treadmill, there are plenty of reasons tobreak a sweatwhile traveling for business: Getting a HIIT workout inon the day of your scheduled flight helps get more oxygen into your brain and releases endorphins, which will help when you’re sitting for long stretches of time on a plane.
