Vacation Fitness

Vacation Fitness

However, new exercisers may not have established the habit securely enough to prevent post-vacation dropout from their exercise routine.

Pre-vacation planning can help your students and clients to stick to healthy lifestyle activities and enjoy their time off. Encourage them to research the following while making their plans.

  • Is there an exercise area and swimming pool?
  • What additional recreational activities are available? - biking trails, inline skating, parks, walking/jogging paths.
  • Is there a fitness facility (YMCA, etc) nearby that services the hotel guests?
  • What kind of exercise clothes and accessories for planned exercise activities will be needed?
Time for Exercise
  • Encourage your clients to plan at least 30 minutes 3-4 times a week for exercise.
  • If driving long distances is part of the vacation - walk briskly for a few minutes at each rest stop.
  • Walk briskly through the terminal during long layovers.
Workout in a Suitcase
  • Rubber resistance bands or tubing for strength training.
  • Jump rope for cardiovascular exercise.
  • Pushups, squats/lunges, abdominal exercises can be done withoug equipment.
  • Stretch daily.
Help your students and clients brainstorm for ways to include fitness in their vacations. Do a "practice" vacation workout with them before they leave on their trip. Write their workout on a log and encourage them to use it.

Ultimate 30's Workout

Increase the amount of testosterone and growth hormone your body produces by working multiple muscle groups and keeping rest periods short. For cardio, your lactate threshold can still be increased throughout your thirties, so intervals are king to counter any loss of lung power.

Ultimate 40's Workout

Short, sharp shocks are the way to fire up your body in your middle years - which means you can forget long-winded weights workouts. Vary exercises, intensity and timings to keep your muscles guessing.

Ultimate 50's Workout

You may not be able to lift the heaviest weight, but that's okay. Instead, stretching and yoga should be part of your training, and body-weight moves can replace heavy workouts. Do three sets of 10 reps of the following exercises to protect your joints and maintain muscle mass and testosterone.
