A Travel Workout Routine Might Seem Impossible — It’s Not
Whether for work or vacation, travel is a part of nearly everyone’s life. Americans took over 2 billion trips last year, and the number is set to rise in 2018. Regardless of why you’re traveling, there is one aspect of home that you can take with you, but almost no one does: your workouts. Developing a travel workout routine is important to keep you from losing health and fitness gains while you’re away from home.
It doesn’t take long for your body to start losing its gains and, more often than not, it’s almost impossible to stick to a diet when you’re eating out. Add to that the difficulty of time changes, the rapid pace of most trips, and the excitement of visiting new places and it’s no surprise vacations tend to set people back.
Why You Need To Keep Working Out
Stress reduction: Traveling is stressful, no matter where you go. Just like it does at home, exercise can keep you refreshed and give you more confidence to tackle your itinerary. Keeping your mind sharp and alert will help you make the most out of your trip.
Energy Levels: It’s hard enough to stay active and energetic at home, and traveling will always drain the energy you do have. Thankfully, getting a quick workout in can boost your energy and get you through your day.
Immune System Boosts: Chances are, you’ve come home from a trip with a bug that ends up knocking you off your feet. Regular exercise helps strengthen your immune system and can keep the hordes of unfamiliar germs from ruining your trip.
Keep Up With Your Goals: Your body loves you when you’re taking care of it, but taking more than a week off can cause your body to start storing more fat and lose the muscle mass you worked hard to gain. Your travel workout routine doesn’t have to adhere to a specific schedule. There is no reason to let those hard-earned gains fall away—just try to fit in at least 30 minutes of exercise per day.
Develop a Travel Workout Routine and Keep Yourself Going
Unfortunately, many hotels still lack a fitness center, making it harder to keep up your muscle tone. Your best solution is to bring your workout with you. Take 15 minutes in the morning, break out your OYO Personal Gym, and get your blood flowing. Or finish off your evening with a full body workout and get the best possible rest before taking on the next day.
It doesn’t take long to keep your body healthy, so make sure you’re taking your fitness routine with you on your next trip.
