Traveling Blues No More
When you travel, you are faced with being outside of your normal fitness routine, limited quality food options, and probably more downtime than normally needed. On your journey to better health and fitness, you must overcome these obstacles and put fitness in travel. While you are on holiday or personal travel, you need to learn to incorporate physical activity and healthy eating into your daily routine. Do not worry; we are going to give you insights into living a fuller and richer life when you travel.
There are benefits to training outside and getting away from traveling festivities; however, this is easier said than actually done. First, do not make excuses not to exercise when the gym is not handy! Next, make this your goal, “I will maintain my current body weight.” Lastly, drink plenty of water and be vigilant about appropriate portion sizes both at restaurants, business meetings and visiting homes.
Remaining Fit WHEN YOU TRAVEL
Let’s be realistic, you are going to have days where you are going to struggle, maybe even eat and drink too much, or weather conditions might impede your training. Everyone does. But you can strive to be that committed person that does not give in and does not let your traveling agenda stop you from your personal success. Now, get ready to succeed when you travel.
Here are some travel tips to choose from:
- Drink plenty of water
- 45-60 minutes of Cardiovascular Training
- Body Weight Conditioning Training
- Shadow Boxing
- Yoga before breakfast
- Yoga before bed
- When commercials are on do push-ups and sit-ups
- Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
- Go for a hike in a local Park
- Invite your family, members to participate in activities with you
- Find a local fitness class and drop in
To reap the benefits of fitness when you travel will not be an easy task. Your family, spouse, or friends might not understand why you are training during travel and limiting excess food and alcohol. For people on a journey to a healthy weight and fit life, effort is required to achieve your goals such as to fit into a smaller pant size or receive a much-awaited compliment from our significant other. Remember these are nice accolades, but the largest benefits are decreasing health risks, increasing life longevity, and dedicating oneself to healthier lifestyle. We make the priority to go train at the gym, so let’s make it a priority to train while we travel.
- Benefits of continuing to train while traveling: Stress relief from family and travel
- Keeps yourself focused on your goals
- Weight management
- Inspire a family member to live a healthier lifestyle
- Cross trains and strengthens weaker muscles
- Decreases burn-out from always training at the gym
