If you want to achieve your fitness goals, you need to remember that consistency is vital. If you’re going traveling for a few weeks, maybe even a few months, that doesn’t mean you should forget about your fitness goals and abandon them altogether. Sure, taking a few days off is fine, it’s healthy to have a break and a few days away from the gym won’t completely derail your progress. However, you need to jump back into routine and find creative workouts to do to stay active while you’re traveling. Whether you’re on the road for fun, work, or visiting family, here are some travel-friendly workouts to try.
Pack a Hula Hoop!
Get yourself a collapsible hula hoop to take traveling and get hula-hooping whenever you can! Hula-hooping is not only a super effective workout, but it’s also super fun. Blast your favorite Spotify playlist and get spinning. It’s an excellent and exciting way to stay fit while traveling.
If you and your partner are looking for a fun and creative way to work out while traveling, look no further! Try out acro-yoga to stay flexible and fit this vacay. Acro yoga is a physical practice that combines forms of yoga, acrobatics, and Thai massage. Acro yoga is challenging; however, you don’t have to be acrobats or total yogis to try it! Give this challenging workout a go next time you and your partner are traveling.
Pick Up a Board!
If you’re holidaying somewhere with amazing waves and gorgeous water, why not pick up a surfboard and try and catch some waves? Surfing is an excellent workout as it requires full body strength to be able to push against the waves, push yourself up, and balance yourself on the board. Another great exercise similar to surfing is standup paddle boarding. Standup paddleboarding may look easy, but don’t be fooled, it is a challenging workout that also requires a lot of body strength to be able to balance on the board and paddle against the waves. Surfing and standup paddle boardings are fun workouts and great ways to enjoy the sun and water while traveling.
A great way to take in the sights while traveling and fit in a good workout for the day is cycling. Hire a bike for the day, enjoy the fresh air, and get that heart pumping and quads burning! Did you know that you can burn up to 650 calories an hour by riding at a moderate effort level? Yes, please!
All you need is a yoga mat, and some Pilates moves, and you’re good to go! Pilates may seem easy, but it can actually be a challenging workout if you push yourself. Check out Blogilates on YouTube to get you started, her Pilates workouts will whip you into shape fast!
