"Bring your gym gear—Most hotels do have a gym. It may be small and under equipped but it's still a gym. A simple workout doesn't have to involve much equipment. Pushups, situps, lunges, squats and other exercises can be done with just body weight."
This is a mnemonic for exercises that can be done with just body weight: PLSS

And finally, what 60 IN 3 means (from About Me page):
"For those of you who are asking about the title of the page, 60 in 3 represents my progress as well as my philosophy. I started on my path to a healthy life style in the beginning of 2004. At the time, I weighed 280lbs. By the end of 2006 I was down to 220lbs. That’s 60lbs in 3 years. I have 30 more lbs to go which I’m hoping to lose over the next two years. It sounds a bit slow, but for me, it was just right. I made slow and gradual changes to my life rather than go on any sort of quick fix diet. I also realized that it wasn’t about being thin, it was about being healthy."
According to a study reviewed by Science Blog, daily brisk exercise reportedly decreases the risk of pemature death by 70%. The study found that “highly fit” men had half the risk of death compared to “low fit” men. For every 1-MET increase in exercise capacity, the risk for death from all causes was 13% lower.
