How to Maintain Your Fitness While on Vacation


As the summer season approaches, many of us are finding ourselves getting ready to gear up to celebrate a well-deserved summer vacation. Many times we approach the vacation with reckless abandon, giving up on our traditional diet routines and exercise workouts.

Vacation time is often considered to be the best way to relax, and rejuvenate before needing to head back to the office. But exactly how can an individual maintain their fitness while on vacation?

Vacationing in Moderation

Who does not enjoy a quality vacation? Vacationing is the ideal way to kick back, and spent a relaxing time with family and friends. It is very easy to eat tons of barbecues, and enjoy drinks without the need of wondering what will happen to our bodies when we get back home.


However, it is important to take vacationing in stride, and do everything in moderation, especially eating.

It is important to avoid any type of over eating, or consuming foods that are of poor nutritional value. Typically, it is easy to understand why we become so lethargic while on a vacation or trip.

The same type of principle needs to be fully applied on the amount of alcohol consumed. While you have certainly earned the right to enjoy adult beverages while on vacation, getting loaded every night will not only hurt your waistline, but your liver.

Staying Active

Most people look at vacation time is a time to veg out, and not consider exercise. However, taking an entire week off from daily routines, especially those involving high activity, can cause significant issues to your health.

Even if there is no gym in sight, you can still produce a meaningful workout, by hiking the beach, going kayaking, and taking long walks to enjoy the great outdoors.

Imagine substituting a daily session on the treadmill by incorporating other activities that produce the same results.

Consider taking the entire family along to exercise, to enjoy the vacation in the outdoor environment. While it does not have to happen every day, staying active is an important part of maintaining routine, even while on vacation.

By being more active, you will maintain your fitness and be able to get back to the routine, once you arrive back home.

Use the Surroundings

It does not matter of your vacationing on the beaches of Hawaii, or getting lost on the Las Vegas strip.

There is activity around every vacation spot that might include learning how to surf, taking to the golf course, or finding an exercise class at a local gym.

While all of these activities work well in the summertime, what about taking your vacation in winter. There are just as many things to do during the wintertime, as in the summer.

Consider making a small gymnasium on the inside of your hotel room, and perform calisthenics, push-ups and other exercise routines.

No matter where you vacation, stay away from high cuisine every night of the week. Minimize the amount of food you consume, and increase the level of exercise, and you will fit better into your clothing, while getting back to your normal routine once the vacation has ended.
