Travel: Keeping Fit While Traveling

| Jan. 2009

(Family Features) Traveling can leave you feeling more tired at the end of your trip than when you left. But making time for fitness when you’re on the road can keep your energy up and make your trip more enjoyable.


Fitness Tips

Get Wet. Choose a hotel with a swimming pool. Swimming is a great, low-impact exercise for all fitness levels. You can even walk lengths of the pool – the water resistance gives your workout more oomph.


Hit the Gym. Make sure the hotel you’ll be staying at has some kind of fitness room. Check their Web site or call ahead to find out what equipment they offer and what the operating hours are. If they don’t have a fitness room, ask about nearby fitness centers. Some hotels have agreements that allow guests to use the centers during their stay.
