As I prepare my personal training clients for summer vacation, many are searching for ways to stay fit on vacation. After all, if you put in months of hard work to have a lean, tight and healthy body, why sabotage this over vacation? Did you know the average person can gain 4-6 pounds in just one week of vacation? Don’t worry, I am not going to feed you with an intense fitness program to do while you are on vacation, but I will provide you with some great tips on ways to stay fit on vacation. If you follow my tips you will stay fit while still having a blast on vacation. Here are my ways to stay fit on vacation.
1 The Early Bird Catches the Worm (and Burns More Calories)
2 Dance the Day and Night Away
3 Walk to Your Destinations
4 Plan a Fitness Event as Part of Your Vacation
Vacation does not have to be a holiday from your health, so run to it! Why not run or walk a 5k while on vacation? There are 5k races often in the spring, summer and fall, so why not run one on vacation? You will have the opportunity to meet some locals and explore a different area. On vacation my husband surprised me and signed me up for 5k race near Disney World. It was so thoughtful of him to do so, and it ended up being a family event. My oldest daughter, 6 at the time, ran the ½ mile race and my other daughter, 4, ran the ¼ mile race.
5 Choose What You Splurge on
6 Stay at a Hotel That Has a Gym with Quality Equipment
I make sure to always stay at a hotel with a gym that has quality equipment because if it is raining, then I always have an alternate solution to get my workout in. There have been many times I have been on vacation and walked into a gym and left disappointed, so I now view the gym online before I book the hotel.
7 Be Prepared to Meet New People
Just remember to make your vacation unique and special to you. If you have become a fitness enthusiast or are working towards your new body and health, there is no reason to take a vacation from your fitness. The people that take a vacation from fitness have not made fitness part of their lifestyle yet. But don’t look at these individuals differently, inspire them! You have made a lifestyle change, so continue your newfound passion on vacation and inspire others with your ambition and dedication. Do you exercise while on vacation?
