It's OK to Take a Workout Vacation

It's OK to Take a Workout Vacation

We all need vacations from work and school in order to give our minds a little time off and to avoid burning out. The same rule applies to exercising.


Every now and again, take a workout vacation for a few days. This is a time where you are not working out and you're giving your body a little bit of a rest from your usual routine. Interestingly enough, I find that if I schedule in a workout vacation for myself, I am actually excited to get back to it, even if I just take off three days. When someone asks if I am going to the gym today, it feels a lot better to respond with, "Oh, I'm taking a little break. I've decided not to go to the gym for the next few days." Instead of, "I am so not going to the gym because I am totally burned out. I [bleep]ing hate the [bleep]ing gym and am never [bleep]ing going back..."

You know what I mean? So if you're feeling a little burned out, try a fitness vacation, it may be just what you need.

Fit's Tip: Make sure that you have it scheduled for just a few days and that you also have your return scheduled, otherwise you may be tempted to put it off, which is certainly not the intention of a fitness break.
