Other vacations include visiting a big city, like New York City or Chicago, or going to visit family or friends. A smart way to exercise and take advantage of your surroundings is by walking or running. Not only are you getting in good aerobic exercise, but you are taking in the sites of the city at the same time. If you are visiting family, you might hop on a couple of bikes and let your host show you around the town.
Finally, how about getting to your vacation destination and back? Some of us spend an entire day either driving of flying to our destinations. We can even spend a couple of days getting there. For these trips, here are a few exercises you can try in the car or the plane, or at a rest stop:
- Use a stress/squeeze ball
- Pelvic floor exercises
- At a rest stop: lunges, squats, or a 5 minute walk around the picnic area
- Calf raises, even if you are sitting
- Try using ankle weights or an exercise band
