Have you got the travel bug? Are you just itching to get out of your neck of the woods and into something new? Do you also have a fitness bug, looking for new ways to become and keep fit? Fitness travel might be for you.

What is Fitness Travel

Forbes makes a good point. Traveling makes keeping wellness in check, well, a little complicated. Though they’re referring to business travel specifically, they bring to light that being on a trip does not lend itself to the best fitness routine. It creates specific challenges for your body overall, sometimes sleep schedules, gut health, and of course—the time, ability, and motivation to work out.

Unless, of course, fitness was at the heart of the reason for your travel.

If you’re not into fitness, to begin with, you might be cringing but hear me out. The idea is pretty innovative and has a kind of turn-a-weakness-into-a-strength energy to it. The concept is similar to that of a yoga retreat. There is an alluring destination involved with some classes and activities peppered into the duration of the trip. Except, these types of fitness retreats are emerging all over the world and incorporate other forms of fitness like dance, biking, hiking, Zumba, and more.

What to Expect from a Fitness Retreat

Similarly to spiritual retreats, a fitness retreat or a fitness travel vacation is a destination where you go to work on your fitness. If you’re working with a company, they’ll create the perfect schedule to meet your fitness goals. From managing hotel arrangements, fitness classes, and even sight-seeing opportunities, everything will get organized for you. Additionally, you get to have the support and motivation of those who are also part of the retreat.

However, if you’re looking to take fitness travel into your own hands, you can also create your fitness retreat on your terms. Start by making an itinerary that includes all the places you want to see and check out the best hours to do so. Then, have a list of travel-friendly workouts that you can incorporate into your travel routine. Set a schedule and have an accountability partner to make sure you get those workouts done.

By the end of your vacation, you would have explored a new city and improved your fitness regimen. Talk about a win-win situation.

Why Not Just Go on a Regular Vacation?

So, why not just go on a regular vacation? Well, you can. However, it might be interesting to consider what you’d discover if your perception were shifted to fitness being the overall goal. Might you push yourself a little extra with a stellar view of mountains, or perhaps with the crashing of ocean waves on an exotic beach in the background?

I will never tire of new ways or excuses to travel, and hey, if becoming more fit is a part of it—some might consider that a win-win scenario.
