So you have a vacation coming up. You’ve been working out extra hard to get ready (yay!) and you want to keep fit while away. You also don’t want to spend your vacation squeezing in your workouts. Here are some simple tips from our trainers about keeping fit while away.
- Walking! Bring your sneakers and find time in your schedule for a brisk walk. You can see new things and get the heart pumping.
- Pool workout – even for a non-swimmers: If your hotel has a pool, you can walk/run laps in the pool. To mix it up, walk some laps forward, some backwards, and some sideways. If you keep your past brisk, you’ll fire up your legs and get some cardio. Bring you hat!
- Hotel gym workout – if your hotel has a gym, even a small one, we love a cardio/strength workout for about 45 minutes. First walk on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Use a significant incline. Then, start doing a circuit – 10 lunges each leg, 10 push ups, 10 squats. In between circuits, walk 2-3 minutes on the treadmill.
- And, of course, check out your vacation area for Pilates classes!
