Keeping fit is often the first thing on everyone’s New Year’s Resolution list. It’s also one of the first to fall on the wayside when traveling.
Whether you’re jet-setting to a luxury resort, or venturing within a rustic lodge, here are a couple of ways to sneak in a quick work out.
However, for those looking to incorporate more their fitness goals into their travels (good on you), there are a plethora of destinations dedicated to keeping you on your feet and active.
Four Seasons Resort & Spa Waleia – Mauii, Hawaii
Hawaii is a destination with endless options when it comes to fun, aquatic beach activities. The Four Seasons Resort & Spa Waleia in Maui offers surfing and boogie board lessons for those keen on catching some waves – the shores of Waleia are perfect for those new to surfing. Other beach side activities, like canoeing and snorkeling are also available for those who want to go beyond ‘hanging ten.’
Bikini Bootcamp – Tulum, Mexico
We sort of gave a shameless plug earlier this year about the Bikini Bootcamp in Mexico. While beachside resorts entail endless R&R time, the Bikini Bootcamp is a specific fitness destination that incorporates certain elements of fitness throughout your stay. From brisk morning beach walks, yoga & pilates, to a calming meditative session, everything about the Bikini Bootcamp is geared to polish your body and mind.
Trekking Mont Blanc – Mont Blanc, France
For travelers already in top-notch form (physically) and would like to challenge their fitness endurance to higher levels –both literally and figuratively- the Mont Blanc trekking tour offered by G Adventures might just be the ticket. The ten-day hiking expedition is physically intense, as adventurers encircle the highest mountain in Western Europe.
This is a great way to test both mental and physical endurance. But for those looking for a similar type of expedition, requiring a little less physical exertion, G Adventures offer a myriad of adventures for travelers of any fitness level.
