come back from an epic trip you really enjoyed, whether for work or leisure,
but there’s one problem. Your fitness schedule was thrown right off and, since
you plan to turn this travel lifestyle into a full-time thing, you’re worried
that you’re going to turn into a big, fat, unhealthy blob!
if a couple of days, a week or two, or maybe even an entire month, was enough
to have you falling off a health and fitness routine, how on earth are you
going to manage a lifetime of prolonged travel? As a traveling couple
constantly on the road, we believe we have some great practical tips you can
implement to stay fit on your travels, no matter how long you go away for at a time.
Be somewhat of a cheapskate
sometimes shoot ourselves in the foot when we religiously eat up what the
travel and tourism industry tells us is value we’re expected to pay for. A
cheaper hotel, hostel, guest house, etc, which doesn’t have an elevator for
instance, is more beneficial to those travelers who want to maintain a fair bit
of activity. Having to carry your luggage up a flight of stairs and use those
stairs every time you go come and go is a great way to get in some “natural”
though, it pays to be somewhat of a cheapskate if you’re a traveler who wants
to stay fit. Accommodation that’s some distance from the amenities you want to
get to means you can walk there or jog, getting in some much-needed exercise
without having to think too much about it. Walk, job, cycle, hike – that’s how
we do it with great ease!
Fully embrace the digital revolution
coaching brands such as CALIBER
make up the ideal selection of the various utilities you can use to add a bit
more of a “professional” and structured approach to maintaining your fitness
while traveling. Use apps to track your activity, along with perhaps checking
in with a personal trainer online.
the digital revolution in this and many other ways helps us plan and keep track
of all we do while out on the road, making it easier to make sure we account
for the requisite activity to maintain our fitness.
What it boils down to
about deploying all the tools available to make fitness part of your traveler’s
lifestyle. Firstly, make use of the information you can access digitally, then
use that information to plan your travels and the associated routines in such a
way that you cover your fitness needs, even if it means searching for a local
gym at which to make up whatever deficit you may have let form.
Walk to the
grocery store and back, returning with ingredients you can use to whip up
healthy meals, etc…
