Whether you’re on a business trip or vacation, exercise is still important. How do we manage both? I’m sharing today how to sneak in exercise while traveling.
Traveling is a joy. You get to see new places, experience new cultures and indulge in the wonderful food options each place you visit has to offer. While traveling can bring on a lot of joy and happiness, there’s also something else it brings along, the lack of exercise. Often times when we travel we neglect our fitness routines. This happens to the best of travelers, but there’s a way you can sneak in exercise when traveling without much effort.
How to Sneak in Exercise while Traveling
Yoga poses can be done anytime and anywhere! Be sure to take a yoga book with you that shows the moves. Nothing worse than getting prepared and not remembering those awesome poses!!
Perhaps stay in a hotel that has a workout facility. This is a great way to get some exercise in without leaving your hotel. You can do a morning and evening workout in this facility without cutting into your travel time.
A resistance band and other small workout gear can easily be packed in your suitcase without adding much weight and bulk to your travel bags. Use this equipment to sneak in exercise while getting ready for your day of traveling or after a long day of enjoying the scenes.
Where a Fitbit or a similar pedometer that can track steps you take each day. Make sure to set a goal and reach that goal every day that you are traveling. This is an easy way to sneak exercise in while traveling while simply enjoying wherever you are visiting.
You can certainly do a few pushups at the start and end of your day. There’s nothing required except your determination to do this every day while traveling. Simply find a comfortable area in your hotel room and get doing those pushups.
Rent a Bike
If there are bike rentals where you are traveling, consider experiencing the world you are visiting by renting a bike or perhaps a kayak and getting active while exploring this new place. Often time’s places will have these rentals at a super affordable rate.
Don’t have any way to bring along exercise equipment? No problem, utilize your hotel room chair for chair squats. Stand with feet hip-width apart, and squat down then up, without sitting down. This is a great mini-workout to sneak exercise in while traveling.
If your travel plans include a long road trip, try to map out a route that allows you to hike some of the ways rather than sitting in a car. This will get those steps higher on the pedometer and make you feel great as you experience your destination in a whole new view.
There you have it, a few easy ways to sneak exercise in while traveling. There really isn’t a whole lot needed when it comes to finding ways to get fit while traveling. All you need is determination, dedication and a creative mind to sneak in some exercise.
