How can I exercise while traveling and Get fit on holidays

# How can I exercise while traveling

Be creative, that you cannot stick to advanced training because of any reason. This does not mean you have no option to choose from to keep yourself in shape. To be honest basic training you are able to do everywhere. But let’s not be so serious, let’s make it fun. Most of the ideas below you can easily do while travelling. Choose your favourite (or one that is the least disturbing)
Your best option besides the preferences will include the availability of infrastructure (swimming pools, safe paths to run, gyms etc…) environmental conditions if you plan to work out outside, as well as how it will fit into your schedule especially if you do not travel alone or have business hours.

  • Jogging
  • Yoga
  • Gym or fitness center
  • Outdoor gym
  • Walking and Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Train in a hotel room (standing up or on the bed) with YouTube, small equipment as a resistance band
  • Biking

There is a ton of ideas on YouTube! If you do not have a regular routine, it’s a great way to find inspiration for all types of fitness level from cardio and bodyweight exercises to training in a bed or hotel room seriously!

Let's talk practice

# Keep active as you go - be flexible and focus on favourite activities

When you arrive at your destination, set the tone for the trip by working out right away or head for a walk – even if it’s only a brisk walk to check the area. If this is not doable, plan time for your next training and handle it as if it is an important appointment, as it is.

Walking is a low-impact activity that might be done indoors or outside and needs no equipment. Walk through the airport’s terminals, hotel or conference center’s hallways. Take the stairway. Or, take your stroll outside to explore the city. Talk with the hotel about safe walking or jogging paths around.

What to pack? Comfortable shoes,  smartwatch or step counter apps/pedometer apps

Use 80/20 Rule - make healthy choices by 80% of the time, and 20% try whatever you want

1# Running is a marvellous way to get to know the city

Running as a means to get to know the city is an interesting concept, isn’t it? Doing it in the morning while most places are still empty outside gives a lot of benefits:

  • By running, you can see much more and much faster than walking.
  • Besides visiting and getting familiar with different districts you can see more “normal” parts of the city – less touristic.
  • space for your body and mind without slaloming between the people,
  • seeing usually crowded spaces empty,
  • give yourself a happiness boost for a day,
  • increase energy,
  • getting your healthy dose of exercise,
  • having it done and out of your mind to enjoy yourself.

 

How to pack? Sport shoes and 2 or 3 sport sets will be a great addition to your luggage. Letting you be comfortable to have spare change that you do not need to wash immediately after every use. At the same time, it does not take too much space in a suitcase. Chose closes from easy to dry materials and avoid cotton.

 

Research if the place you want to run is safe. Ask hotel staff for advice and of course … Google

Every time I travel, I make a point of running in a new location the first thing in the morning. I ran in the morning in New York, Barcelona, ​​Paris, London, Los Angeles, Mexico, and even in winter in Canada. This is my favourite moment of any trip.

2# Test World's gyms

Many hotels have their own gyms. Some cooperate with local gyms, that you can use as a guest for free or for a small fee.

Another solution is to look for gyms with ‘Open day’ where you can receive a free day pass to check if you like the gym – without any obligations. Contact them!

More and more hotels develop their gym-wellness section or small fitness center. And it’s nothing surprising check-up Grand Hyatt Berlin, Boheme hotel in Mykonos, Clarion Hotel – Stockholm or Excelsior Hotel Gallia in Milan. When you will be visiting LA, and you would love to train at legendary Gold’s Gym on Sunset Boulevard, book your staying in Erwin Hotel

How to pack? Sport shoes and 2-3 sets of sports clothes. Depend on your favoured activities, you can take with you small accessories (Power Band, Hip Band, TRX) that will enrich your training and fit easily into the luggage. It will save you if the gym does not have the equipment you expected.

# Healthy life is a Healthy mindset

3# Joint activities organised by Hotels

When it comes to sports, boutique hotels often offer fun and interesting ideas. As group exercise sessions such as jogging, yoga, surfing, stand up paddle etc., for their guests.

Next time during check-in, ask about attractions and activities organised by the hotel or in the area. Such a great way to combine exercise with adventure and leisure – so much fun!

What to pack? Spontaneous activities are hard to predict, but basic is sports shoes, sports clothes and swimming suit.

4# Yoga in the most beautiful places

If we talk about yoga – it’s an ocean of possibilities. Firstly, with only a few things, you can make yourself an amazing training at any intensity level.

Just pack your yoga mat in suitcase, and you can train in the most beautiful places on your own terms – wherever in a beautiful location or any place you want… There are very few limits to where you may practice yoga. You can set your mat on the pier on the lake. On a lovely beach. You can go to the rooftop of your hotel to welcome sunrise or sunset. Mat works the same well next to the pool. Everywhere, you can find wonderful locations to practice yoga. 

Check the local groups on social media because often yoga sessions are organised in parks or have other yoga-related events you can discover.

5# Step by step aka Take a Walks

A little stroll does wonderful things for your body, visually and in terms of health. Visiting the city is a great motivation, and you don’t even know when you hit 15,000 steps!

When travelling, I always push sightseeing to my limits, and I want to go everywhere on foot. I avoid using the subway because I like exploring the city. By moving around, I easily discover the topography of the city, including many secret places. Which I would certainly miss waiting for the metro.

6# Try an online class or YouTube

No matter if your hotel has a gym or the weather outside is bad, you can always find a training suitable to do in your room. There is plenty of standing workouts (if you want to avoid lying on the hotel room floor) or training on a bed. 

If it is important to you, you'll find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

# Get fit as consequences of healthy choices that make you more active

7# Get wet

Swim laps in the hotel pool. Fast way to keep yourself active and fit. 
If you are brave enough try Aqua aerobic classes.

Playing in Ocean, sea or lake counts as well.

8# Rent a bike

Look for opportunities to rent a bike for a day or few.

# Focus on Yourself

8# Try a new activity

Look for classes or activities as meet-ups on social media or apps that interest you. It will allow you to explore the local culture, meet people and enjoy yourself.

Maybe there is something you always wanted to try but never had opportunity – tennis, golf, squash, stand up paddle… ?

# Understand Yourself

9# Listen to your body

If the activities of the day leave you exhausted, adapt your workout time for shorter or lighter effort. Same as you have good training days – when you want to make it harder. It’s completely fine to have days when you get easy on your body. Take care of your regeneration, sleep, quality food and water intake.

Regular exercise helps to reduce stress and feelings of low energy, which might be just what you need to get down to business.
