If you’re one of the many citizens who are saving the family vacation for later in the summer rather than combining it with the Fourth of July holiday, then you’ll want to take advantage of the tips available in a new report in Parade. In that article, readers are given insights into the ways to make sure exercise and vacations don’t contradict one another.
One of the best things you can do to increase your chances of sticking to a workout regimen is by taking things with you that allow you to exercise on the road. While you’re probably not too keen on hauling a giant set of weights in carry-on luggage, you might be able to get away with some smaller handweights. And if you’re taking a road trip, it could be possible to carry a medicine ball or a resistance band with you. Even a few minutes of stretching and resistance work in a parking lot is better than nothing.
You can also look into what kinds of amenities are offered by the properties you’re staying at, using the presence of a gym or a pool as a criteria for selecting a hotel. You’ll be more inclined to stick to your workout if these things are within walking distance. That way, you’re not forced to go hunting for a great running path or gym.
