The holiday that you’ve been dreaming
of may be fast approaching. You’ve spent hours planning it, and even longer
saving for it, right? It’s set to be the perfect trip, full of new experiences
– the perfect time to switch off, unwind and disconnect.
As well as a break from work, you may
be chasing a little break from your diet, the gym and any usual limitations.
However, you really don’t want to ruin the health and body you have strived
for, for so long! With this in mind, follow our helpful tips to stay fully focused
on your fitness while you’re away.
It may be that you’re staying somewhere that is bereft of a gym, and you can’t find one in town. This does not mean that all is lost, and you will be very impressed at the results you can get from bodyweight and HIIT workouts you’re able to do in your hotel room. Press-ups, tricep-dips, squats, ab crunches and leg raises can all help to build muscle and burn calories.
Sight-see in your
Rather than using
tour operator buses and taxis, put on your trainers and go for a stroll. There
really is no better way to take in the joys, scents, and surprises of the
cultures that you’re visiting, than on foot. Not only is this the perfect way
to stay active, but it will also save you a pretty penny or two.
Navigate the hotel
Breakfast really is
as important as people make out, and we’re all well acquainted with the buffet
breakfasts that are often available at hotels. Of course, it can be tempting to
pile your plate sky-high and scoff everything in sight. So, make an action plan
and pre-empt your choices the night before.
Have fruit salad
morning, an egg morning, a pastry morning, and the day after try a traditional
local breakfast – this way you will have worked your way around the buffet
table over the course of your trip. Indulging as you go – but not overly so!
Hydration is key
Drinking a lot of water is important
regardless, however, if you’re somewhere hot, this rings even more true.
Generally, you should drink upwards of 1.5 litres of water a day, and should
increase this if you’re being active, or if it is hot. Thirst can often be
mistaken for hunger so you’re likely to eat more if you’re dehydrated; the
likes of watermelon, strawberries and cucumbers
are all over 92% water so be sure to choose snacks wisely and this will help to
keep water levels up.
However, we all know that it’s not
that easy and it can be hard to stay disciplined. And even more so when you’re out
of your normal routine. If you have qualms about staying on track when you’re
on holiday, consider one of the many fantastic Weight Loss Camps From Prestige
way, you will have your own meal plan catered exactly to your needs and be
working out alongside likeminded people to ensure you remain motivated. Staying
fully fitness focused while on holiday will fast become second nature!
