When else do you have a few days of uninterrupted personal or family time, free of work obligations, household chores, or to-do lists? Yet, if you’re working on your fitness goals, you may have trouble breaking free of your gym habit – or, if you’re on the other side of the spectrum, you may have the unfortunate habit of abandoning your fitness routine altogether while on vacation.

Either way, if you want to stay active while off the grid, you may be wondering how to accomplish this without spending every day in a pay-per-day neighborhood gym. Check out these tips, which will make staying active on your next trip an easy thing to accomplish.

Pick a destination with enjoyable activity options.

Whether you prefer to spend your vacation wandering the halls of museums or riding high on snowy slopes, your trip should speak to the activities that you enjoy. After all, exercising is much easier when you’re doing something you truly love. So, land on a destination with ample opportunity to check out museums, ski, swim, or whatever else moves you.

Book lodging with on-site fitness offerings.

It used to be that hotel gyms consisted of little more than a treadmill and a handful of free weights. These days, however, hotels are making their on-site gyms and other fitness amenities more attractive to wellness-oriented travelers. Make staying active as easy as booking your hotel room when you choose lodging that offers these perks on-site.

Explore your new surroundings on foot.

Sure, you could hop on public transit or charter a boat tour, but if you’re able to do so, why not explore the city you’re visiting on foot? Walking is healthy for you, burns plenty of calories when done for long periods of time, and totally free of charge. Plus, walking gives you a more up-close view of certain attractions you’d only be able to see from a distance with any other mode of transportation.

Split your day up into two parts: “active” and “relaxed.”

No matter how active you may be, there’s no doubt that you’ll inevitably want to kick back for some much-deserved rest and relaxation – no mountain biking or city trekking involved. Because we think you deserve the best of both worlds, try setting a time when you’ll transition from the active first half of your day to the more relaxed and leisurely second half. 1:00 p.m. is an ideal time to aim for.
