Get up and move during business meetings. Do not sit still for eight to 10 hours. You need to move. Our bodies are made for movement.

Employ the buddy system. Work out with a colleague while on the road. Forgo a sit-down lunch to explore a city on foot; run or hit the gym together early in the morning.

The hotel concierge is your best friend. He or she can tell you the best places to run, walk, bike, and swim - and even where to stop for a midworkout coffee break.

Pack healthy snacks in your carry-on. You never know when you'll need them.
