While some consider working out as a way to unwind while on vacation, others would rather spend their time relaxing. However, even if you don’t love working out, you likely aren’t looking to bring extra weight home with you after your trip to Jupiter, Florida. Don’t fret, there is a way to do both! Our team at Beach Water Sports has put together a few tips to stay fit and avoid putting on those extra five pounds while still feeling like you’re on vacation.
1. Choose Healthy Beach SnacksInstead of grabbing that big bag of barbecue chips, pack veggies, fruit, cheese, and crackers for when you get the munchies. And while many are likely to enjoy an adult beverage while on vacation, be sure to also drink plenty of water! Not only will water help you feel full without adding any calories, it will also help you stay hydrated while you’re out in the sun.
2. Take a Walk
Instead of spending all day just sitting on a beach chair, get up and walk the beach every hour or so. Walking in the sand actually takes much more energy than walking on hard surfaces. That energy is used to strengthen all the muscles between your feet and back, especially your calves, quadriceps and glutes. This small amount of exercise keeps you from being too sedentary, and you can still enjoy the sun, surf, and people-watching along the way.
3. Try a Watersport
Vacation is a great time to try out a new watersport. Try paddle boarding for an adventure that is so fun, you won’t even realize you’re burning calories. Another great option is renting a kayak for a great cardiovascular and upper body workout, as well as a good time!
