Exercising on the move

Exercising on the goThe holiday season is just around the corner and guest blogger Mike Manning offers some great advice on how to stay active while travelling.

There are so many ways for you to incorporate fitness into your travel plans. One way to accomplish this is to devote about an hour or so each day to exercise.

When on holiday, if you notice that your family doesn’t start waking up until mid-morning, you can get up earlier and hit the hotel gym for a good run on the treadmill.

You might also want to implement small exercises throughout the day while you’re on the go. Backstretches for example can be done if you’re the passenger in the car on a long journey.

One thing that all travellers and holidaymakers need to do is to research their hotels before making a booking.

This is especially important if you want to keep up with a fitness routine so that you can stay on track.

On a recent trip I was able to stay at a hotel with a great 24-hour fitness centre because I did the proper research on a travel reviews site.

Many hotels are installing or improving their fitness centres, making it a lot more fun for you to get in a good workout. Others even have workout classes provided daily for paying guests.

Even some of the more popular airports are now providing facilities for the fitness traveller. For example, San Francisco International Airport, has a beautiful yoga and Zen room open to people who need to stretch out and relax between hectic flights.

Working out while travelling might seem like it won’t be fun, but it can definitely help you to feel better in general and help you to get back into your workout routine when you get back home.

After all, you won’t be on holiday forever and it can be difficult to get back into the swing of things if you haven’t exercised in days or even weeks.
