If you've ever been on vacation or traveled for work, you understand how difficult it is to find healthy meals. The combination of not having time to eat and limited restaurant choices can leave you stuck eating a greasy cheeseburger. But have you ever wondered how artists stay fit on the road?

We were lucky enough to talk to Australian superstar producer and fitness enthusiast, Will Sparks, about how fitness plays into his career and how he stays fit on the road. Alongside his advice, he was kind enough to create an exclusive workout playlist for us.

EDM.com: Would you say going on tour has made it easier or harder for you to stay fit?

Will Sparks: Harder obviously but I always make time no matter what. No excuses while on the road.

Besides the activity on stage, how do you stay physically active while on tour?

Just gym really. I normally fly in the morning and get in late arvo/night. Have a big feed and go straight in to an hour or 2 in the gym!
