How to Stay Healthy When Traveling Over the Holidays

Speak Up: How Do You Stay Fit When Traveling Over the Holidays?

We are knee-deep in holiday season, which means many of us are loading up in planes, trains, and automobiles and heading home for the holidays. Since the stress of traveling and classic holiday treats can be distracting to a healthy lifestyle, being away from our gym, regular running trail, or stash of fitness gear can pose a problem.

The last time I traveled, I stayed at a hotel with a top-level fitness center, but this won't be the case for Christmas. I'm only bringing a carry-on with me and traveling to subzero temps, so I'm not sure how much room I'll have left next to my huge boots, puffy jackets, and thermal layers. While I am hoping to get some family walks in, I'm still unsure of what I'll be doing when I want something a little more intense.

How are you staying fit when traveling this holiday season?

I walk as much as possible (through airport, at the mall, etc) and try to bring a workout DVD.

I usually pack a jump rope, running shoes, and workout clothes whenever I go anywhere overnight. I usually can find somewhere to run and I do that and jump rope for a good quick cardio workout. I also bring resistance bands so I can do some strength work as well.

I'm going on my honeymoon over Christmas, at a resort in the Mayan Riviera. They have spin classes and a full sized gym! I made sure of it before we booked.
