Posted on July 24, 2019 by Roxanne Hoffman

When people go on vacations, they sometimes also take a break from their fitness routine. The issue with this, it could be difficult to slide back into the routine once the vacation is over. It would be like starting from scratch. It’s like you’re back to square one again.

It’s also quite understandable why people take a break from the routine during the trip. It could be impractical because of the equipment and the limited space. You may be using equipment that is impossible to bring along during your trip or not that easy to find in your destination. Your itinerary might also be jam-packed so it’s kind of tricky to squeeze in your exercise time.

However, if you want to stay fit during your trip – you could still do that. It certainly has its advantages. You’re not exactly back to zero on your fitness level when you get back from vacation. Also, exercise gives you more strength for the duration of the trip.

And as a bonus, it’s to balance out all the eating we did on vacation. The truth is, we do love to eat during travel – because why not? Part of the experience is enjoying also the food of the place. When you stay fit during the trip, you feel less guilty about over indulging.

So how does one remain fit during their vacation?

Plan beforehand. – This is a crucial step if you plan to stay active during your trip. While being spontaneous is also exciting, you must have an understanding of your destination.
