You’ve arrived at the destination of your dreams, the food is delicious, you’re enjoying every second of your trip to the fullest - but the thought of falling out of shape because of all the fun, is gnawing at you. Here are 5 strategies to rev up your heart rate to avoid that disheartening scenario \ By Oren Herschlag 5 tips for staying fit while on vacation

01 When packing: always remember to pack a set of gym clothes and keep in mind that there’s no better way to get to know a place than on foot (even on sunbathing holidays). 02 Go for a run or a walk: check if there are any parks or outdoor areas where you can go for a walk or a run (shop hopping doesn’t count!). It’s always a good idea to consult hotel clerks as they can point you towards the best running or walking spots. 03 Check out the hotel gym: nowadays, big hotels usually have their own gym. Go check yours

out – you’ll soon discover it’s far from crowded, and you’ll feel like you’re in your own private gym. Half an hour on the treadmill in the morning will get your heart rate nicely pumped and release all those wonderful endorphins, even while you’re on vacation. If you prefer to abstain from your usual daily run, do 30 minutes of weightlifting instead, to make sure you stay fit and active. 04 Go for a swim: going for a half-hour swim in the morning or evening in the hotel pool is it too, a great way to stay in shape while on holiday. It will keep you feeling active during the vacation, and if you’re holidaying by the sea, go

for a swim along the shoreline (only when there’s a lifeguard around of course). 05 Go for a bike ride: more and more cities in the world are making space for bike trails. Cycling is a truly great way to get to know a place, as well as stay active, as it allows you to be fully autonomous, dispensing you from having to rely on public transport.
