When it comes to traveling, staying on track with your fitness goals can be a difficult task. For most, exercising is the last activity on a busy schedule.
& I get it.
Just recently my family and I have been traveling more frequently, and I must admit..
Trying to accomplish your normal gym and diet routine can be extremely difficult.
However even with all the traveling, the vacation foods, and the driving..
Know that there are plenty of ways to stay fit and even lose weight while vacationing.
So with that said let’s get straight to it.
Here are some simple ways you can stay fit while on vacation.
Book a hotel with a gym
Whether you’re staying at a hotel or an Airbnb, double check if they have a complimentary gym. This should definitely be on your checklist when shopping around for hotel rooms.
Do know that most hotel gyms can have a subpar amount of gym equipment, however, as long as they include a set of dumbbells and some cardio machines..
You can definitely get a good workout.
Here’s a sample workout with just a treadmill and dumbbells.
Shoulders / Legs / Conditioning
Dumbbell Squat Press
Straight into Treadmill Sprints – If you can’t sprint walking on the treadmill incline is completely fine.
Light to moderate weight
Straight into Treadmill Sprints or Incline Walks
Do this routine 4 times.
As you can see, having only dumbbells and a treadmill can make a great HIIT workout. It’s really about what you make of the equipment not the equipment itself.
You don’t need a super fancy gym to get things done, matter of fact you can get a complete workout with just a pull up bar and a yoga mat!
So let’s say you find the perfect hotel that unfortunately doesn’t provide a gym..
There’s a solution.
Research and check local gyms in the area to see if you can opt for a visitors pass. Better yet, if you already have a gym membership, check if there’s branches of your gym in the area.
Order smart at restaurants
A lot of people will tell you to avoid eating out if you want to lose weight, however, the truth is the complete opposite.
Matter of fact, I know a lot of people that lose weight by only eating out.
Why do they do this? Because it’s convenient!
So how do they accomplish this?
Well the best way to approach this is by first knowing how much calories you need to eat per day in order to lose weight.
Remember, losing weight is about always being in a calorie deficit. So by knowing how much calories to eat, you’re more equipped on knowing what to order. More so, your diet can be a lot more flexible.
So if you don’t know how to count your calories, definitely check out my ebook called ‘MACROS’. In this book you’ll discover how to calculate your own calorie deficit and also learn how to apply it to all your meals. Click here to learn more.
Carry around more water
Water provides all sorts of fat burning benefits.
It’s free if you find a water fountain and it’s super cheap compared to sodas or other drinks.
