We like to keep up our fitness regime when on holiday, this doesn’t mean we will do it every day but we do like to keep active. We don’t by any means think it is essential that you keep up your fitness regime when on holiday and it’s important to know that taking a week off isn’t going to set you back.
If you do decide that you want to keep fit whilst on holiday then you can see below our 5 top travel essentials for keeping up with your training whilst on holiday.
Sweat Towel- If you are travelling abroad then this is going to be a must unless you want sweat dripping down your face. If it is really hot then dampen the towel before you start your workout as it will be lovely and refreshing half way through.
Water bottle- It’s incredibly important you continue to rehydrate your body when training abroad in a hot country. We would suggest having a bottle of water close by when working out as you will need it.
Skipping rope- skipping is a great form of exercise. We like to incorporate skipping into some of our HIIT work outs as it really gets the heart rate going. Skipping ropes are light and compact to pack into your bag when travelling abroad. Even if you just completed 5 or 10 minutes of skipping a day you will definitely burn off a few extra calories.
Your phone & Headphones- Download some apps before you go on holiday that you can use offline as you might not have access to WIFI when training outside. You would suggest downloading a 30 second timer for when you are completing your HIIT training instead of using the stop watch on your phone. Headphones are essential especially if you want to do a quick 5km run when on holiday.
Download a good playlist- Make sure you download a motivating upbeat playlist when on holiday so you can play when working out as it will make the hot conditions more bearable. We like to create our playlist on Spotify.
