It’s National Hispanic Heritage Month and, as with the other heritage months we’ve marked, we’re celebrating the many unique and diverse people who make up the communities we serve.

It may be a quick weekend getaway or a week-long business conference or even an adventure halfway around the world for months at a time. No matter the trip, one thing is certain: our normal workout routine gets thrown out the window sometimes.

In preparation for a two-week long trip to beautiful Buenos Aires, Argentina, I thought of ways to make my workouts quick, effective and fun so that I could enjoy the beauty of the city—as well as indulge a little in the delicious Argentine cuisine!
