To follow your workout routine regularly is not easy, but keeping it while you travel is a bigger challenge. However, it is not impossible! That’s why we’d like to give you some simple tips that, with a bit of discipline, will help you to reach the goal.
The first and most important step is that you must be motivated from the beginning, It may sound simple, but the lack of motivation is the main reason why we stop training. Don’t sabotage yourself with thoughts that will make you postpone your objectives.
Set your sports clothes, pack the things that you always use like light dressing and sports shoes. It doesn’t matter if you are one of those people who plan every detail or one of those who improvise everything; the best choice will always be to wake up as early as possible, and to do your morning routine. This way, you will take advantage of the day, and will be free for other activities. Remember that is very important that after you finish your exercises you take a nutritive breakfast.
Every time we travel, we think that we are on holidays, and that we need to relax; but we are not conscious that to exercise can help us to achieve that objective. Exercises keep our body active, relieve the stress and allow us to feel much better with ourselves. So, don’t think that after training you will be more tired; on the contrary, you will have more energy during the whole day.
To make easier this plan, look for a hotel with swimming pool or with a gym that will enable you to continue with your routine. This way you won’t be exposed to warm weather conditions like in the jungle or very cold like in the Andes. Although take into account that to do physical activities outdoors will also be good for meeting the place you are visiting. And, if you want to test your “Indiana Jones spirit” you can always look for adventure tourism in your destination.
Think carefully about your objective of continuing with your routine over your holidays: Follow it every day, do it a couple of days or just don’t lose the rhythm. It doesn’t matter the purpose of your trip, you will always find the right time to exercise. For instance, if you are in your honeymoon, you can train with your partner, or if you are on vacation with the family, you can encourage your children to follow you!
Ideally you should talk with your coach, and ask him or her to set a routine that meets what you’re looking for. Likewise, it is of great help to keep in touch with him by WhatsApp so you can do any querry.
To exercise is essential for our health; thus we should not stop even when we travel. ¿Are you willing to be in good shape next time that you visit any of these destinations?
