Maintaining Your Fitness on The Road: How to Stay on Track While Away From Home

vacation1

So you’ve made some great progress in the last couple of months – you’ve lost some body fat, gained some muscle, and are just about bikini ready!  And now it’s time for a vacation!  Unfortunately, you can undo a lot of progress in a short amount of time.  With a fair and realistic ‘minimize the damage’ sort of mindset, here are a few tips for maintaining your fitness on the road:

-Have a plan

When it comes to going on a trip and staying on track, failing to plan is planning to fail.  You need to know what you’re going to do for your workouts, whether it’s working out at the hotel, driving to a nearby gym, or even just running outside.  Having some healthy snacks in the hotel fridge can go a long way as well.

-Make good choices

When it comes to eating out, you can always make better choices.  Are you going for the pasta and cream sauce or the chicken breast and veggies?  You get the drift ;)

-Use Your Own Body weight

There are a ton of exercises you can do with your own body weight.  Check out this article on Prison Workouts for some great ideas.
