When you’re on vacation, it’s easy to justify a lot of unhealthy decisions. However, you can make healthy choices during your trip and have just as much fun. Check out these simple ways to stay healthy on your next getaway.
Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise for anyone. Whether you’re swimming laps like an Olympic athlete or playing water games and sports with the kids, you’re working out while cooling off. At your resort’s pool, you can enjoy amazing views from the water, such as the beach view from the infinity-edge pool at Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort in Cancun, Mexico. Many resorts also offer exercise classes at the pool. At Villa del Palmar Cancun Mujeres Beach Resort in Cancun, Mexico, you can join in the daily swimnastics for a fun aqua aerobics routine that keeps you active and having fun during your vacation.
If you don’t have time for a long workout, then your resort’s got you covered. Visit the resort gym or fitness center and get in a quick run on one of the treadmills, or keep your muscles toned with weight machines and equipment. You’ll find fitness centers with amazing views at resorts such as Marriott’s Grand Chateau in Las Vegas, Nevada or Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Some resorts, like Marriott’s Kauai Beach Club in Lihue, Hawaii. also offer free fitness classes to help you stay motivated and active.
Explore the area around your resort and enjoy exciting outdoor activities you can’t try at home. If you live in a warm environment, use your vacation to try skiing and snowboarding. Discover hiking trails near your resort, such as the lakeside trails around White Bluff Resort in Whitney, Texas. You can also discover opportunities for mountain climbing, boating, fishing, and many more exciting and energetic activities.
Many people use a vacation as an excuse to indulge in unhealthy foods. If you’d like to eat healthier on your vacation, then make sure to check out the menu before arriving at a restaurant and know what healthy option you’re going to order. For more variety in your healthy choices, vacation at a resort with multiple restaurants available, such as Harborside Resort at Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
