A vacation can do wonders when it comes to reducing your stress levels, but it also can derail a healthy fitness regimen. Even some of the most die-hard exercisers find it difficult to stick with a workout program when away from home. Sure, many have good intentions. They may even pack their workout attire. But unfortunately in some cases, their gear doesn’t make it out of the suitcase until they’re back home.
Traveling doesn’t have to interrupt — or lead you to completely abandon — your healthy habits. You can still fit in exercise time when away from home, whether you find yourself in a warm or cold climate. Even if bad weather forces you into hotel room seclusion, there are exercises you can complete without a single piece of equipment.
Here are some tips to help you stay fit while traveling and avoid coming home with unwanted extra baggage.
