Healthy Travel: 5 Tips for Staying Fit on Vacation

It’s Spring Break season!   Sunshine, friends…and the temptation to overindulge in alcohol and junk food.

How do I make my fitness goals a priority without sacrificing having fun on my spring break trip?

We asked the team at Titan how they stay on track while on vacation. Here’s a few ideas you might consider trying for a week away from home – where you might have limited options:

1: Pack Your Supplements: Instead of carrying full tubs of TITAN WHEY protein powder, Creatine, Enlite, etc., use plastic Jello Shot cups to pre-pack single servings of supplements! One scoop fits perfectly into a container and it’s super easy to stick in a purse or luggage. And, unless you are bringing a TON of supplements, you should be fine to leave in your carry on!. You can also carry your supplement powders in zip lock bags for easy and convenient travel.  Be mindful that your powders might get tested at security.  

2. Look for healthy food options on the go: Options for healthy meals and snacks can be limited when traveling. It’s a good idea to research local restaurant options and grocery stores before you travel.  Avoid fast food and look for the LEAST PROCESSED menu options- think whole chicken breast, veggies, salad, etc.   

3. Stay hydrated:  If you’re flying, you can easily get dehydrated. While an airplane cocktail or coffee  is tempting, you’re not doing your body any favors. Opt for water to maintain hydration and consider adding an electrolyte powder like Thirst+ to replenish essential minerals. 

4. Prioritize Workouts: There is not an excuse to skip workouts while traveling. If your hotel gym sucks or if you don’t have access to equipment, you can still sweat. Try to workout at least a few times while on vaycay, trust us, you WILL feel better and your body will thank you.  Below are a couple ideas for quick travel workouts that require ZERO equipment:  

Sample Workout #1: 30-Minute Bodyweight AMRAP (As Many Reps as Possible) 

  • 1 Minute Squats
  • 1 Minute Sit Ups 
  •  1 Minute Lunges
  •  1 Minute Push-Ups
  •  1 minute Rest

Sample Workout #2: 4 Rounds for Time: 

  • 25 burpees 
  • 25 Push Ups 
  • 25 Mountain Climbers 
  • 25 Sit Ups 

Sample Travel Workout #3 : 1500 Meters of Fun 

  • Run 300 Meters 
  • 40 push-ups 
  • Run 300 Meters

  • Run 300 Meters 
  • 40 Squat Jumps 
  • Run 300 Meters 
  • 1 min plank hold 
  • Run 300 Meters

5. Have Fun: Don’t forget to enjoy your vacation! Research shows that a week off super-hardcore work in the gym is not going to cause major losses to your hard work. Continue to keep a supplement routine, aim to make mostly health-conscious meal choices, and prioritize daily movement – and you’ll maintain your current fitness level. In fact, we bet you’ll come back from break charged up and ready to continue crushing your goals.
