Let’s be frank. While traveling, how often do you get worried about staying fit? Not often, right? Okay, no problem because it’s quite common that most of us repeatedly forget about staying fit while traveling and it’s not wrong. Obviously! Who remembers the gym in a new place that seems just so awesome to wander around!
Still, there are plenty of ways to stay fit and burn some calories while you are away.
The best part about it is that you won’t feel like working out rather it can simply be another great way to explore the new place.
1. Hire your legs instead of a cab
The next time you are in a new city get yourself a pair of good running shoes and walk your way to nearby landmarks, instead of hiring Uber.
This ways you’ll burn a good lot of calories, save the Uber expense and immerse in the new surrounding, finding far better position to experience the sounds, smells and sights your destination has to offer.
Remember there is google map so there is no way to get lost and I’ve seen that almost everywhere the local people are kind enough to guide.
2. Swim a few laps in the hotel pool
Most of the hotels are equipped with fitness facilities. That’s why if you are staying somewhere with a swimming pool take advantage of it. Head to the pool in the morning when it’s less crowded and get some cardio by swimming a couple of laps.
Even if swimming is not a part of your normal workout routine, it is a fantastic way to stay fit and also way too much better and more fun than hanging in the hotel gym.
3. Get a little adventurous
There are many opportunities to break the sweat and push your physical boundaries while you are on a vacation. Vacationing on the beach? Go for a small swim near the coast if the tide’s not dangerous or try surfing. If it’s winter, go for skiing or in the warmer weather rent a bicycle and take a close look around the city.
Moreover, you can also find exciting things like zip-lining, skydiving, rafting etc.
4. Watch what you eat
When you’re traveling it is great fun to indulge in the local tastes. I love it too! The best things are free breakfasts and street food.
You can dig in deserts and enormous complimentary breakfasts in a while. All you need to do is to keep an eye on your proportion and avoid lots of fried and oily foods.
The point is that: eat while controlling the size of the portion not limit yourself from the street food that your destination offers.
By staying active and keeping an eye on your meal sizes, it isn’t as hard as it seems to enjoy and stay fit while vacationing!
