Going on a holiday trip can be fun.
If you’re with friends, it’s even better. You can take a break from work and
forget all the problems you face back home. The problem is that when you’re
away from home, you couldn’t go to the gym and exercise. After a week of
traveling, you immediately gain weight. It’s the only reason why you hesitate
to go on a trip. These tips will allow you to continue exercising even during a
Sleep on time
yourself while traveling. Sleep early and wake up early. It gives you the
chance to exercise. You still have enough energy to try an exercise routine. If
you’re always hangover, you will forget exercising.
Find a hotel with a fitness gym
Another way to ensure that you keep
exercising is by booking a hotel with a fitness gym. It might be more expensive
than one without, but it guarantees you can continue exercising. The equipment
might not be as good as the ones in your regular gym, but it’s good enough.
It’s also easy to access since it’s within the same building.
Bring portable exercise equipment and clothing
If you can’t find a hotel with a gym,
or you’re heading to a remote location, you can bring portable exercise
equipment. Fitness balls, yoga mat, and jumping rope are among them. They’re
easy to fit inside your bag. You couldn’t do weights for a while, but you can
still stay fit.
Don’t fill your itinerary
You need to save time to exercise.
Whether it’s in the morning before starting your trip, or at night after an
exhausting day, it doesn’t matter. As long as you exercise, it’s good enough.
The problem is when you want to visit
a lot of places. Your schedule is always full, and you don’t have time to
exercise. Try to create a more realistic schedule. Remove some destinations so
you can still have time to exercise at the hotel.
Look for physically exhausting
Find activities that will make you sweat.
Visiting destinations that require a lot of walking would be great. You can
also try fun outdoor activities like hiking. Even if you don’t exercise, these
activities can help compensate.
Just because you’re on a trip doesn’t
mean you can forget about staying fit. Imagine if the trip lasts for an entire
week. Not exercising during that time is enough to remove everything you worked
hard for. You will gain weight and go through the process over again. You
already made a lot of progress. Don’t let this trip ruin your fitness plan.
If you have a trainer, try to keep in
touch even during your trip. You can get advice on what to do to stay fit.
Apart from exercise, you should also watch what you eat. There’s nothing wrong
in trying out new dishes as long as you don’t finish all of them. You have to
stay cautious and avoid foods that will make you gain weight.
