Keeping fit on Business Trips- Chicago Pt. 2

When travelling on business, chances are you are going to have very little time for yourself. Long days of meetings, training sessions, conference calls, e-mails and travelling between locations transitions into nights of dinner meetings, drinks and schmoozing.
