Getting Fit Before Vacation

Getting Fit Before Vacation


We all know that feeling of wanting a hot summer body from the moment you book that well deserved holiday. Having a vacation booked is a real motivation builder. Here are some tips to assist you on the journey leading up to the moment you board that plane.

Organising Yourself in Time for Take-Off

Once you book your holiday, you will start counting down to when you fly. This is a good opportunity to use this time as a countdown to your body transformation. Looking at your calendar and working out the best workout routines and meal planning around the time you have left before holiday gives you more motivation. Keeping an eye on the countdown and setting daily reminders will push you further in time for your vacation.

Finding a Fitness Routine Right for You

Not everyone likes the gym and enjoys running on a treadmill, so why not find something that fits your needs and will get you pumped and ready in the morning? Social networks with fitness accounts post daily regarding quick workouts, following them is one way to motivate yourself. Finding a gym with the right equipment and atmosphere is another way to ensure you keep going consistently. This gym in Rancho Cucumonga won’t just get you fit and ready for your vacation, it also offers excellent team training classes and a gorgeous fresh smoothie bar. They also offer tanning and hydro massage, so you can relax and have that sun-kissed look for your vacation!

Adopting Healthier Food Options

Choosing a diet and sticking to it can be a real pain. There’s no point cutting out all foods you enjoy eating, only to revert back and gain weight. The best way is cutting down on the bad and adding more of the good, for example, buying wholemeal options instead of white. Morning smoothies with certain ingredients sure to burn fat are a great idea to lose weight, as well as hydrate the body coming up to summer. What you choose to put in your smoothies is up to you, but here is a good place to start looking at a range of the best weight loss smoothie recipes.

Having a Fitness Partner

If you’re going away with friends or have other people who are striving for that summer body in time for their own plans, having that person there with the same goal to push you is such a big help. When you are having days where you are lacking motivation, chances are they will push you and vice versa. Watching each other improve will only urge you to get the results you’ve been hoping for.

Keeping a well-balanced and healthy lifestyle is hard. But the trick is don’t force yourself to do things you don’t enjoy or else you will only put it off and make no improvements. Finding things that only bring excitement and happiness to your lifestyle is the key to drive you forward in time for that rewarding vacation.

    I think Classpass is great for getting variety in the workout. My membership has really helped me stay consistent. Now I just wish I had a vacation to get in shape for!

    These tips are very timely for me. I’m going on a vacation next month, and I’ve been searching some tips on how to get fit. I want to look good in my swimwear! I guess the best tip you gave is to find a fitness partner, so there will be less cheat day for me.

    Hello Carmen,
    I have followed a new weight loss process. It’s called Kito Diet. Result comes up very fast. Besides that i took some natural supplements. Those help me more faster to burn extra fat. Those products were US made. So it was trusted one.
    Thanks again for the nice post. Have a good life.
