Stay in Shape – Holiday Workouts

Health and Fitness During Your Vacation

  • Worried about gaining weight during your vacation? Mild fitness training is better than none at all and even on a busy holiday you can find plenty of opportunities for some exercise. Most hotels and resorts have equipped gyms and some offer other facilities and activities such as tennis and squash courts, yoga and Pilate classes and swimming pools. You might be away from home and your training routine, but you can still stay fit!

    Aerobic and Cardiovascular Exercises

    If you are used to aerobic training such as jogging, cycling and swimming, in most hotels you can keep up with your routine. You can start your day at the pool, go out for a run or cycle in the gym. Most hotels offer a fitness center with a professional trainer who can plan for you a suitable workout plan for your vacation. After all your effort, you can relax your muscles in a sauna or a hamam.

    Sitting in a hot tub after workout can relax the muscles and increase the range of motion as well as lessen any pains. Do make sure that you get at least 20 minutes' rest before getting into the hot tub in order to lower your heart rate. Remember to drink plenty of water before, during and after your time in the hot tub.
    Since people tend to eat bigger breakfasts in their vacations than they usually do, you should exercise in the early morning hours, before breakfast.
