Stay Fit and Have Fun!
Going on vacation is a blast! You have the opportunity to just sit back and relax...but do you ever come back from a "relaxing" trip only to feel run-down, bloaty, and sluggish? You can have fun and stay fit at the same time while enjoying your vacation! Just check out my video on 5 Ways to Work Out on Vacation! For more tips on travel check out We Are Travel Girls!
1. TAKE A HIKE
2. HIT THE WATER
3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK
4. PACK SMART
5. STICK TO YOUR SCHEDULE
These 5 tips are practical and can totally fit into your holiday. No matter where you are off to this year, try one (or all!) of these tricks to stay looking great the whole time! Also, these tips can be tweaked a bit to suit your preferences. For example, if you don't like to swim, then you can do for a walk, hike, or good bike ride! Hitting the beach? Take a stroll on the sand or peruse the boardwalk while getting your steps in. An early morning bike ride is invigorating and is a wonderful way to start the day!
In colder destinations, you can walk around the historic sites, or spend time in a museum (lots of walking!) There are also great cold weather activities like snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, and skiing (just don't get hurt!)
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail! Bringing along some things that will motivate you to stay active will certainly help you on vacation. I always sneak a resistance band and a yoga mat in my luggage; they're super light and easy to bring along. Some activewear and trainers, and I'm all set to get a great workout in! You'll notice that a lot of my workout videos are between 10 and 15 minutes and are filmed in beautiful locations. I travel AND work out, and you can too!
While you're looking up your next destination, be sure to check out any activities you can do there. Maybe the hotel has a fitness center, pool, or other space for yoga and exercise. When you already have the plan to be active, your fitness routine will stay intact and you'll have an absolute blast! Tell me where your next trip will be, and bon voyage!
