Getting away from reality is undoubtedly good for the body and the soul, but avoiding the usual training routine while you are on your vacation can be bad. However, taking a trip doesn’t mean you can’t exercise like home. This can actually be a perfect time to exercise, to get rid of your routine, to open your mind to new possibilities nature has to offer, and have fun while you are enjoying your trip. We will show you some of the best tips that can help busy travelers to stay in shape.
Walk on the beach
Walking in the soft sand is a very effective workout and burns more calories than walking on flat ground. Some experts suggest that you can burn almost twice as many calories when you are walking in soft sand. Remember to keep it safe, to wear shoes, although you can walk barefoot if you prefer and get used to it. You will be surprised how difficult it is. If you don’t like walking, you can hire a certified personal trainer in Abu Dhabi who will give his best efforts to make your training feel like back home.
Play beach volleyball
You can burn more than 150 calories per hour when you are playing volleyball on the sand, depending on how hard you play. It’s also a great way to meet other people on the beach so you can train together with them while you are also having fun.
Surf, swim, and dive
Surfing is a complete body treatment that will challenge every muscle in your body. Even if you just drop and fall, you will get a great workout. Snorkeling is a little easy, but you can increase the intensity by swimming a little harder. If you are on a beach that does not have big waves, put on your diving equipment and swim back and forth to get your blood moving. One thing is sure, you will burn a large number of calories.
Climb the mountains
Whenever you add altitude to your walks, you burn more calories. If you carry a backpack, it’s even harder, but as long as you enjoy nature don’t worry. Check with your hotel concierge to see about hiking adventures you can find or you can find the hiking trails by yourself.
Golf can be a paradise if you drive around in a vehicle and drink beer the whole day. However, if you want to burn more calories and get your body in shape, wear your clubs with you and walk the course instead of driving. You will burn around 200-300 calories per hour, and that’s not little.
Shopping definitely isn’t the greatest activity you can take on your vacation, but it can be very aerobic if done under the right circumstances. If shopping is your activity of choice, make sure to walk fast, take as many stairs as you can and avoid fatty and unhealthy food.
Eat healthy food
You may be tempted to eat junk food on your vacation, but don’t make this mistake. For a quality diet, it is not good to eat everything. Make sure to drink supplements after training and also make sure you organize your diet and training all day long, prepare a meal for yourself and bring it with you. Before training, it is necessary to eat a meal rich in proteins and carbohydrates, and if you do not have much time before training, then our suggestion is to eat a banana, something that you will cook quickly, protein chocolate, yogurt, or cheese. Equip yourself with some protein supplements and don’t forget the most important thing – drink water.
