Getting away from reality is good for the soul, and getting away from your usual workout routine is good for the body. That being said, a vacation can be the perfect time to exercise, so don’t lose all of your fitness progress by taking a vacation from working out. Instead, change the way you do it! By freeing yourself from your routine, you open your mind to new ways to move your body, have fun, and keep your body fit, all while you’re on vacation. Our team at Sea Gardens Beach and Tennis Resort in Pompano Beach wants you to relax, have fun, and continue to meet your fitness goals during your stay with us.
It’s actually easier than you might think to maintain your cardio while on vacation. The beach offers up countless activities that will give you a great workout without feeling like you’re exercising. Some of the best workouts include:
- Walking or running on the beach: Walking in soft sand is a killer workout and burns more calories than walking on flat ground. Some experts suggest that you can burn twice as many calories when walking in soft sand.
- Beach Volleyball: You can burn more than 150 calories per hour, depending on how hard you work. And it’s a great way to meet other people at the beach while having fun!
- Tennis: Tennis is a great activity for cardiovascular exercise and hand-eye coordination. For a full body activity that is fun and entertaining, there’s no better option than a match on the court!
If you’re looking to stay a little closer to your home routine, you can still mix it up by being in a different gym. Our state-of-the-art, on-site gym is open 24 hours and features a variety of weights, lifting, and cardio equipment. You don’t have to do much, however, to maintain your strength and muscle while you’re out of town. So don’t worry about missing out on family fun, because just a quick workout with body weight exercises, resistance bands, or weights will keep you strong and fit until you get back to your usual routine at home.
As you plan your vacation this fall, keep in mind that taking a week off from exercising probably won’t make much of a difference but, any more than that, and it may be harder to get back to your previous levels. Finding ways to stay active while on vacation will keep you fit, help you avoid weight gain, and make the transition back to real life a little easier.
