A holiday is a perfect time to relax, have fun and eat your heart out. However, it can be a reason to gain unnecessary weight that is hard to shed off when you’re back.
Here are 3 tips to stay healthy and fit even on holiday without ruining your trip:
Track Your Steps
Wear a smartwatch throughout your trip so you can track your steps and increase your walking frequency accordingly. If you’re sightseeing or participating in a lot of walking tours during your holiday your steps will automatically show higher, however, if the step count is less than your daily goal you can always walk more.
Bring Workout Gear
It’s good to carry your workout gear on your holiday. This can include workout shoes, your yoga mat, or weights. If you are traveling to the beach, doing yoga there can feel very relaxing and keeps you toned as well. Weights are good to carry when going on a road trip so they don’t count towards luggage weight when taking a flight. The best thing about weights is you can do them in your hotel room and don’t need any gym or equipment.
Try a Local Exercise Class
Most cities have exercise classes, gyms, or swimming pools. It is a great way to stay fit while interacting with the locals. You can also look up dance classes such as salsa which are fun and an exercise too. Book cycling tours if you are tired of walking but avoid taking a taxi. This way you are not only staying fit but saving money. When booking a hotel check if they have a gym or pool available.
