Training On Holiday

On the build up to a summer holiday, We tend to watch what we eat, how we train and what we look like.
Once your gone away it’s time to take a step back, To relax and forget about everyday life back home.
If training plays a big part in our life, It is more important than you might know, Aswell as keeping you fit it helps release stress, tension and makes you feel fresher on a daily basis.
When we head away we tend to take in a few extra calories via Food, Cocktails etc.
To help you stay on top of all your hard work over the weeks building up to your holiday, Getting active for a few minutes a day on holidays can help burn off some of those unwanted excess calories.
A short jog, Use of the hotels gym, A couple of lengths of the pool, body weight movements on the balcony/beach.
Being active when your away doesn’t have to be a chore, use your imagination and it will actually add to your holiday experience. The other great thing about training when your away is that once you get home, You don’t feel like your starting form scratch, And if your using a Myzone belt your not falling behind on your MEPS.
