Vacation Workout...No Excuses

I always to try to find a way to squeeze in a workout while on vacation, after all I am in a bathing suit most of the time!  Many hotels have a gym which I try to take advantage of, (see above) however if gyms are not your thing or you are looking for other alternatives check out my suggestions below. 

Group activities: This is a great way to meet new people, enjoy your vacation and workout all at the same time.  Here are some examples:

  • water aerobics,
  • beach/water volleyball,
  • hiking trails and much more!

Take a run on the beach: If you live in the New York area like I do there aren’t many opportunities to have a morning run on the beach.  Take advantage of this unique situation and run on the beach at least once during your next vacation.

Channel your inner mermaid and swim: Most of us just float around in water with a tropical cocktail but why not actually utilize the pool and swim?! Depending on the time of year you are traveling the pool can get kind of cramped, I would suggest an early morning swim so that you can enjoy the rest of the day. 

DANCE: This is my favorite way to burn calories during vacation and on a regular basis. There are tons of opportunities to show off  your moves, do not waste the opportunity. 

Bon Voyage:)
