When on vacation, most people don’t want to hit the gym for hours when they could be trying out new restaurants or relaxing by a beach. However, there are many ways you can incorporate exercise into your vacation in new and fun ways. Below are a few tips for exercising when you’re away from home.
Be adventurous: When vacationing on the beach or at a lake, rent a kayak or go for a jog on the sand to explore the beach. Even fun excursions like snorkeling or fishing are great ways to stay active. Take the time to get outside of your comfort zone while burning some extra calories.
Go explore: If you’re staying in a fun city, choose to walk around to the major landmarks and cool buildings instead of taking a cab. Some cities will also offer bike rentals, which is a great alternative to walking.
Utilize the gym: Some people just can’t imagine not hitting the gym each day. If you’re one of those folks, take advantage of the gym at your hotel. If your hotel does not have a gym, check online for local gyms that will allow you to purchase a day pass.
Schedule time: If your vacation is completely scheduled out and each day is full of plans, be sure to put time on the calendar for a workout. Whether it be a quick 30-minute jog on the beach in the morning or an hour at the gym before dinner, work fitness into your schedule so you can enjoy the fun, delicious foods that your destination offers.
