Beach Running

If you are on vacation by a beach you should go enjoy the beautiful sights while you get your workout in with beach running. Beach running is a more effective workout than running on the road and the best part about it is you will avoid the hard pounding of the pavement. Nearly every vacation I go on I hit up the beach for a relaxing and enjoyable run.



There are many hiking trails across the world where you can get a great workout and even have a lunch break picnic. This is a great way to explore your vacation area while getting a great workout in. So put on some sunscreen, pack your bag and get out to enjoy the great outdoors while on vacation!

Walk when You Can

Biking to Explore

Explore the sights while on wheels and get out on your bike. If you are unable to bring your bike on vacation, look into renting a bike for the day or week. This is a great way to stay fit while you are away and also to see more sights than on foot. Just because you are on vacation does not mean you need to be lying on a beach relaxing. Stay active and see more!

I actually quite enjoy a workout while on vacation, but after final exams and such, I would rather take a few days to recuperate.
