5 Ways To Keep Up An Exercise Routine While On Holiday

We all need a little trip away from time to time, but it’s important to strike a fine balance between letting loose and keeping some sort of self-control. Exercise routines are particularly hard to keep up, so here are five clever ways of ensuring you do so when you’re next on vacation. 

1. Pick exercises you can do anywhere

If you have a relatively complex routine, you can try and find exercises which you can do anywhere. Generally speaking, this will encompass manoeuvres which make the most of your own body weight, as opposed to free weights.

This will include the likes of:

  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • High Knees
  • Frog Jumps

If you stack your routine with these types of exercises you’ll be able to stay on top of your health without the need to lug gym equipment halfway across the world.

2. Get in the right mind frame

 1 in 6 people said they felt a lack of motivation when it came to trying to stick to their diet and exercise plan on holiday. The number is surprisingly low, and one can’t help but feel people weren’t answering with total honesty.

The fact is, very few people feel like they want to force themselves to workout when on their break from the world. Beat this mind-set and you’ll find the excess pounds will stay away throughout your holiday.

3.  Incorporate it into your days out

What better way of getting your daily fix of exercise than by making it a part of your holiday plans in the first place? There are a host of adventure holidays which cater to all shapes and sizes – so pick one and make the most of the high or low intensive cardio they offer.

Naturally, it’s unlikely these types of trips will perfectly mirror your actual routine, but they do at least provide you with a decent alternative. Not to mention they’re also a great deal of fun.

4. Use nature

Can’t gain access to equipment you want, or finding working out with your bodyweight alone a little too dull? No worries, just make the most of the natural equipment you can find all around you.

Use a tree for pull-ups, lift heavy rocks you’ve found lying around or take a picturesque jog along the coast. There are endless possibilities for unique and original ways of working out if you use a little creativity.

 5. Save articles and workouts

If there’s a particularly good workout which you’ve found online (perhaps even relating to the location you’re travelling to), make sure you save it for later. This could come in handy if you’re lacking inspiration for your own type of workout when you get there.

If you follow these tips, you’ll definitely be able to maintain your workout routine when you’re next on holiday. Staying in shape is important, so don’t let it slip just because you’re off having fun.
