I finally told my suitcase that I wouldn’t have a vacation this year.

Now I’m dealing with this emotional baggage.

When you start to look like a driver’s license person, you know it’s vacation time.

The last two years have almost always hit vacations hard. First of all, you were never allowed to go anywhere. Then you can go to some places, but not others. You can then travel, but you will need a shot, paperwork, and a permit from your mom. Well, the last one was an exaggeration, but you understand the point. The trip was more troublesome than it was worth it. But in the spring and summer of 2022, people are finally back on their beloved travel adventure!

As this summer approaches, millions of people travel by air, land and sea to take daily breaks. Traveling of any kind is tough on the body and mind, but it can also cause havoc in your fitness routine. Learn to make exercise part of your travel experience instead of getting your travel itinerary on track.

Here are some great ways to ensure that your vacation fitness is met:

— Find a gym: Most accommodations now have a state-of-the-art fitness center. Before booking a hotel motel or cruise line, please inquire about those sports facilities.

— Take a water break: If your location does not have an exercise room, there is an indoor or outdoor pool, and even a beach. Take the time to swim your laps or do your own underwater aerobics.

— Be Personal: Some hotels offer personal training services, and some offer rooms with treadmills, exercise bikes, or elliptical machines. Please call in advance to confirm the price.

— Travel Goods: Don’t forget to pack your fitness equipment. Most retailers offer “fitness in a bag” that includes skipping rope, exercise bands, and educational DVDs.

――Walk through. Whether you’re at a hotel, resort or cruise ship, you can take every opportunity to walk. Skip the elevator on the stairs and plan a walking tour of the place you are visiting.

— Escape: If running is your style, find a place to run. Check with your accommodation staff to stay in a safe place.

Maintaining an exercise routine is not difficult while you are away on a trip or vacation. With a little planning before leaving home and on the go, you can get your exercise routine on track. The important thing is to keep moving. Join us on that trip this year and enjoy the opportunity to travel freely in this great and beautiful world. Don’t forget your fitness.
