TIPS-Training on Vacation

It’s that time again! We’re all going on spring break or vacations and this tends to be the end of a good habit, we just let loose. Some places have gyms and some do not. When you are traveling, trying to find a gym can be hard to do in that case. I have done a lot of traveling the last couple years and experimented with this. So in this article, I want to show you how you can still workout on your vacation!Image result for gym pass

 Let’s say you are going to a city where it is common for gyms to be. A good place to start is by doing research before you even leave. Google gyms around that area that you will be in. This will give you a good idea of what type of facilities you will be around. Make sure you write down an address and phone number. You may want to see if they have free day passes or if they cost money. Most gyms nowadays have at least a $10 day pass so call in advance so you know if you need to bring extra money.

On the other hand, let’s say you are going camping or camping out in the middle of nowhere. You usually will NOT have access to a gym. In this case, you have the option to get your workout done still! You can do bodyweight workouts. Here are only a few great examples of bodyweight exercises you can do without a gym on vacation:

There are a lot of different ways to keep working out on vacation. The best thing that tends to work for me is at home workouts. I tend to make that more of a total body workout most of the time.

However you may be going somewhere that is basically a workout in itself. These are the trips where you go hiking, do a lot of walking during the days and do other fun outdoor activities. There are many options to pick from when going to places like that, for example when I went to Michigan and didn’t have a gym I did all the following to keep the training going:
-canoeing
-hike
-swim
-played sports

The point of this article is to give you ideas of what you can do to still train when on a vacation. Check out my Instagram page for the workout Wednesday this week! I’m going to post a workout that can be done without equipment and when you are on vacation!

Thank you for the support! Make sure you share this website and vlogs with friends and family to help grow a strong community!
