How to Stay Fit While You Travel!
It can be a struggle to keep up with your fitness routine when you’re galavanting around the globe. While traveling and exploring new places, you never know what a new city has to offer in terms of fitness or gyms — plus, you’re busy having fun! — so it’s often hard to stick to your usual workouts. To help you stay on track while on the road this summer, we are offering you some helpful tips!
1) Run to Sightsee!
If you’re planning to check out all the sites in a new city, why not run from one to the next?
2) Keep it simple!
Overcomplicating a fitness routine is the fastest way to bail on it when you’re traveling. Choose a few workouts that don’t require any equipment that you can do anytime and anywhere like Pilates Mat, Yoga, Walking, Jogging, Biking!
3) Pack Resistance Bands!
If you’re looking to fit in a strength routine while on vacation, consider bringing along a resistance band or two. Resistance bands are easy to pack.. even if your hotel doesn’t have a gym, you can still get some resistance training in your room.
4. Wake Up and Work Out!
When you’re on vacation, especially with a large group of friends, you never know what each day will bring. Your best bet is to wake up every morning and work out whether its 15 minutes or 60 minutes..Something is better than nothing.
5. Rent a Bike
It’s hard to bring your own bike with you on vacation, but renting one is generally pretty easy. Many hotels even offer up free bike rentals to guests, so be sure to ask. Biking is a great way to explore a new place!
6. Do Your Research
Traveling is a good opportunity to mix up your routine and step out of your comfort zone. Boutique fitness classes are a great option since you don’t need to sign up for a membership, or take advantage of nearby outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing and paddleboarding.
7. Be Flexible
Unless you’re training for a specific race or competition, don’t worry about following your routine perfectly. Changing up the intensity and variety of your workouts is also important!
Happy, safe travels!
