The “Hotel Hell” workout, made popular via a YouTube video on March 27, 2011, featuring CrossFit Games athlete, Jason Khalipa, demonstrating a great full-body high-intensity workout you can do with just a pair of dumbbells.

The video opens with cheesy music and Khalipa on an elliptical machine before showing the caption: “While at a hotel during a [CrossFit] Level 1 Cert, Chris Spealler shows us another great WOD that can be done in a standard fitness facility.”
