1. Train Without a Gym 
Fitness centers can vary from hotel to hotel, one trick to sticking to your fitness routine is to forgo the gym altogether and use your vacation destination as your key to wellness. Bring your favorite pair of running shoes and tour your nearby surroundings with a walk, jog or run. Be on the lookout for a children’s playground as they offer travelers the opportunity for pull-ups, dips and other body weight exercises. Another option is to bring the gym with you when you travel by utilizing resistance bands or travel weights that can be filled with water once you arrive. 

2. Make the Commitment
If you have a busy schedule, your personal fitness may be the last thing on your mind and the first thing you may scratch off the itinerary. Prevent this from happening by making fitness time sacred. Ensure that you are spending as much time as possible on fitness. Compromise on everything else before you compromise on your workout and weave it into your day.

3. Eat Well 
Maintaining your health and wellness goes beyond the gym and daily workouts. Fuel your fitness with healthy quality snacks, meals and beverages. When on vacation it can be easy to loosen up on commitment to nutrition, to avoid relying on fast food, pack or go shopping for healthy options that can be easily packed and accessible throughout your day.

4. Get Proper Sleep 
Getting seven to nine hours of sleep a night will allow your body to properly recover from the day’s activities and prepare for the next adventures. The amount of rest varies per person, but to optimize muscle growth and weight loss, quality sleep is a must.

Whether you’re in town or on the road, with these tips you can stay on track to fitness, wellness and a healthier and happier you.
