Fitness Travel Tips!!
Staying fit while on the road (and otherwise) is extremely
important and somehow fitness and travel go hand in hand. If you travel a lot,
you tend to stay fit and if you are not fit, traveling is just not as much fun,
or important anymore — after all, health always comes first, right
As a traveler, any sort of “regular” gym sessions are
impossible, however, if you are focused, you can exercise literally anywhere in
the world. You don’t need a fancy gym and regular classes to keep yourself in
Walk, walk and
then walk some more:
Walking is a great exercise as we all know, but do we walk
enough? When you are traveling, do you jump on a tuk tuk or bus the first
chance you get? If that’s you, this is the first thing that needs to change.
Not only is walking around a new place exciting and gives you the true vibe of
the city, it helps you stay in shape. Plus, you save money too? So, it’s a
new during longer vacations:
When traveling look to enroll in some sort of fitness
classes which are available in that city/country. So that will give you a
flavor of local culture as well as learning something new. You can meet lovely
local people, learnt something new AND stayed in shape. Another win-win! You can take up a local cooking class, it can
help you stay off junk food and add to your fitness mantra.
Always do some sort of fun activities on your trip. If it’s
a beach vacation, its natural you will spend 80 percent of your time laying
around on the sun beds with a pint of beer or a fruity cocktail. By all means,
do that. Spend some time doing something
adventurous. For example, surfing, hiking, zip lines, short treks around the
globe. Another way to meet new people (instructors, other students etc) and
have a lot of fun doing something “different.” Oh and of course that means
staying fit and avoiding that beer belly.
Try to book a hostel/hotel with a swimming pool a pool. If
you have a swimming pool in close vicinity, you will be more inclined to take a
dip…and we all know swimming is a great exercise.
Cycling and bike
Want to explore more than you can cover on foot? Rent a
bike. It’s the best way to go around a place and explore every nook and corner
at leisure. You can even take a guided bike tour if you want to meet people and
check out the hot spots
Apart from your traveling times, be sure to squeeze in
workout sessions in your daily routine as well
Enjoy your healthy and happy trip!!
