Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! This week’s topic is about staying fit while on vacation. I had to laugh when I saw this topic listed for this week because I don’t think any of us are going on vacation anytime soon. I guess it’s still good to have these tips handy for when we can travel!
Plan, Plan, Plan
I know that this doesn’t work for everyone, but I have a very type A personality and I absolutely love planning everything (within reason). My family gets mad at me because I have a “loose” agenda for when we go on vacations, especially if I know we want to do a lot of sight seeing. In terms of fitness, I always try to select hotels that have gyms. I find this makes it super easy to get in a workout, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. When I travel for work I also call the hotel to ask if they have any running paths in the area. I’ve done this numerous times, most recently in Toronto last year, and it was great.
As I’m sure we all know by now, there are so many apps available so that you can take your workout with you on the go! Obviously I’m a fan of the Peloton app because they have so many body weight exercise classes available, but there are tons of other great apps available.
Use your feet to explore
Sure, it’s easy to take public transportation or an Uber to get to your destination, but if the place you need to go is only 1-2 miles away, why not walk there? Not only do you get extra exercise, but it’s a great way to explore the area too. I try to do this as much as possible when I travel. I also find that it evens out all my bad food habits while on vacation as well, lol.
