How To Plan An Enjoyable (And Sustainable) Holiday Fitness Regime

Going on holiday doesn’t mean that your fitness regime needs to go on holiday too. In fact, while you are on holiday is a good time to try out different things that you may not have thought of before, while you have a little more time on your hands. You may even find that you like the additions so much that you might want to keep them as a part of your regular routine.

Stay active

During holiday time, it is very easy to just vegetate and not do anything at all, and really, that is the point of a holiday, is it not? Unfortunately, though, if you aren’t staying active you are more likely to eat more food than usual, and this may start to put on the pounds and undo any of the work that you have already achieved. The best way to stay on top of this is to keep moving, and make the most of exploring the holiday destination in which you have found yourself. Go for daily walks, explore the surrounding terrain, use the hotel fitness facilities and swim as much as possible.

Make a plan that you can stick to

Having a plan that you can use as a guide will help you to stay on track and maintain some sort of fitness routine, even while you are on holiday. Start the day with something, even if it is just light stretching, and add in a couple of other things that you normally enjoy doing throughout the day, to ensure that you stay fit despite the holiday cheer.

Drink plenty of water

It is often the case that when we are thirsty our body mistakes it for hunger and we may end up eating a lot more food than our body needs. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially if you are spending a lot of time in the sun, or are holidaying in a humid climate. If you know that your body is adequately hydrated you will know if you are genuinely hungry or it is just a lack of hydration that is making you feel that way. Salisbury Super Sports encourages adequate hydration even when you aren’t on holiday too, as water is the elixir of life, and without it, your body cannot perform all of its regular functions.

Be creative about using what you have got

If your regular exercise routine involves you going to the gym or somewhere that you won’t be able to go while you are on holiday, you need to think outside the box, rather than just throwing the fitness regime out the window. If you are going on holiday near a beach, or forest, or somewhere that you can utilise the space for doing your workout, incorporate that into your plan. Aim to get up every morning and jog along the beach, or set yourself the goal of having a morning swim in the surf.
