You swore you'd work out while you were traveling, but then (oops!) you forgot your sneakers or (uh-oh) your hotel doesn't have a gym. Well, you're not getting off the hook that easily. Jay Cardiello, SHAPE's fitness editor-at-large, designed six toners that require nothing more than the items found in most hotel or living rooms. "Standing on a pillow and kneeling on a couch create instability, which forces your muscles to work harder to keep you steady—and your body weight provides resistance, eliminating the need for weights," he says. "Plus, because you're doing powerful moves, your heart rate stays up, torching calories." Stash this total-body plan in your suitcase and never miss another workout again.
How it works: Do each move for 1 minute, then repeat the circuit. Change the order every time you do the plan.
You'll need: A pillow, a couch or a bed, and a towel.
