    I find that I just go for a walk with Grandkids or who every else will go with mw. We usually do about 3o mintues morning and night if we are camping
  • Great reminders of easy, on-the-go moves.

    I don't have to worry about this for my upcoming vacation, because it is a women's fitness getaway. Hiking, and bootcamp and dancing on the beach in Mexico for 3 days. I can't wait!
  • good info since I will be going on vacation this weekend.
  • Amaziing how times have changed, that we have to INVENT things to do to get in our exercise, when in the old days gone by, exercise WAS the vacation....you went to places where you swam, and played, and you never thought for a second you were exercising.
  • There are always a lot of places to visit, so walk walk walk walk ! Take your pedometer with you, it's light and takes no space.
  • Try new activities while on vacation - bike riding, hiking, kayaking, skiing, tubing or sledding, snorkeling, surfing or boogie boarding, and other activities that you may not have near where you live. You can work some different muscles, maybe get out of your comfort zone, or you may find a new activity you want to train for! It's your vacation - have fun!!
  • Lots of places have gyms and pools now too, so not often an excuse for not exercising.

    This is very helpful to me, as I am planning a trip in the middle of October. Thanks!!!
  • I especially needed the link for stretching. Thanks!
  • thanks forthe tips and quick pointers.
  • Thank you; I finally have a clear picture of "where to begin". You helped me take my first step.

  • Great article! I'm leaving for Vegas in about a week and will be doing some of these. I'm also taking my computer so I can do the videos on here.
  • As someone who is on the road more often than not there were several great ideas in the article as well as in the comments. Workout bands, weighted gloves, and a small case of workout dvds are my weapons as I travel the states for my job. I love kickboxing, and with a little modification and weighted gloves it's great cardio and strenth training (just make sure you'e not above anyone in your hotel...) Yoga, Pilates and strenght training with bands is great.

    This being said... I wish I could do a little more strenth training. Weights are impossible to travel with, but I've heard tell of "water weights," but I'm a bit skeptical. Does anyone have any experience with them, or know of other alternatives?
  • Great article; still, I'm a bit surprised they didn't mention good old fashioned running, walking, and/or site seeing. When you focus on things other than the food it is amazing how many calories you burn just walking around. And I've seen many beautiful sites from my quick runs on vacation---things I wouldn't have seen before (the beautiful architecture, sunrises over lush landscapes, etc.).
  • Great article, I'm leaving for London and Paris tomorrow. I will be walking a lot which is a plus. And I will bring some exercise DVDs with me for my laptop.
