Staying fit while on vacation

Vacation doesn’t mean you have to scrap your workouts entirely!
Here are 3 ways you can stay on plan without missing out on vacation time:

1.  If you are driving, bring your favorite portable fitness equipment with you. I always pack my kettlebells–how about you?

2.  Walk/run everywhere.   Discover new routes and explore new types of workouts. (sprints on the beach anyone?)

3.  Bodyweight workouts.   You can do squats, lunges, burpees, pushups, etc.  wherever you are.  Even just 10-15 minutes can make a huge difference in your day.


What are some of your favorite ways to stay in shape while on vacation?

      @michael: great point Michael! I forgot to add the hotel gym option! :)

      • I always hit up the hotel/resort gym. Working out is a hobby for me not a torturous chore. When i’m on the beach walks down the shore line are great. The nature of the sand works the leg muscles more and never hurts to get a little sun kissed while at the beach!

  2. I find body weight exercises to be my worst! I would rather lift weights over my body weight any day. I know what needs work. lol

  3. The problem is not being active during vacation its getting that workout in that makes you feel it and sweat it out. Never seem to achieve that on vacation like I can at home.
