How to Stay Healthy While Traveling

How to Stay Healthy and Fit on the Road

yoga hotelSometimes I feel like I live out of my suitcase more than my house! When traveling for pleasure, it's liberating to step away from my structured daily routine and just let the days unfold naturally. But being away from my schedule can often throw a huge wrench in my fitness regime — "Why yes I'd love to go to the beach rather than spend an hour on the treadmill!"

Thankfully for the state of my overall health and well-being, I no longer use the "can't exercise because I'm traveling excuse." Rather than try to replicate workouts — which is impossible to do — I get creative and use what's around me. . . whether that's a tennis court, a pool, or rental bikes. On Fit, we want to give you lots of options for staying healthy while traveling, so here are some noteworthy articles to keep as a handy reference.
