Mariska Breland, founder of Fuse Pilates, has put together these “Quick Fitness Tips When Traveling” to help you reach your fitness goals no matter where you are in the world.
Summertime typically brings fun, sun and vacations making it hard to stay on track with your fitness routine. Breland’s traveling tips show you how to keep your workout fun and fresh, regardless of your surroundings.
When traveling many things are out of your control; flights are delayed, the weather is unpredictable and you may even be part of a larger group with a regimented travel itinerary. Fortunately there is something you do have control of, and that’s your will to work out.
“I know first-hand how difficult it can be to continue with your fitness routine when you’re out of your element,” says Breland. “These tips can be used as a guide, making it easier to stay on track when you’re away.”
Six Tips to Maintain Your Fitness Routine While Traveling
1. Make Time: Set aside thirty minutes to an hour each day for your workout. The morning is an ideal time, not everyone in your party gets up at the same time and your fitness routine won’t interfere with your travel itinerary.
2. Bring Music: Be sure to bring your music along with you. Fuse is based around vibrant music for a reason, it gets everyone pumped!
3. Find Your Spot: Depending on the location your workout may be limited. If there is not a fitness studio or gym around, there is always the outdoors.
4. Plan Ahead: Based on your travel destination you will know what type of workout you can accomplish. Ex: If you’re vacationing at the beach, be sure to bring a Pilates mat. In a city atmosphere? Bring your running shoes.
5. Challenge Yourself: Variety is the spice of life no matter where you are! You’re in a new city, experience a new workout that’s not available in your own city. Try something new and allow your surroundings to inspire your workouts.
6. Go Virtual: Working out for only 10 minutes is better than not doing any movement at all. While in your room, hop online and find some quick mini-workouts, like on the Fuse Pilates YouTube channel (youtube.com/fusepilates)
By incorporating some of these tips above, your fitness routine doesn’t have to be ignored but can actually go on an active vacation with you!
