As many travellers can attest, staying in shape while hopping around the globe can sometimes prove to be a daunting task. Between sightseeing, checking into hotels and eating gourmet foods, maintaining a strict workout regimen may seem like more effort than it's worth. That shouldn't deter travellers from trying to burn some calories and work up a sweat - they should take advantage of their surroundings and exercise in beautiful settings. By designating an hour three times a week to getting their hearts pumping, Aussies can enjoy a croissant or sweet cocktail without feeling any guilt.
Here are some places where travellers can get fit around the world:
Wildfitness: Boot camp training in the U.K.
After taking flights to London, travellers may find themselves feasting on fish and chips before realizing they just consumed a day's worth of calories. Rather than continuing the trend, Aussies can work off their meal for an entire week of sightseeing and training with Wildfitness, which takes participants around the countryside to some of the region's most beautiful landscapes. These intense workouts focus on core muscle groups, and trainers are outfitted to provide travellers with nutritional advice and meal plans to reduce the risk of eating unhealthy bites while on holiday.
The beach: Surf in Hawaii
Embarking on a surfing adventure is a no-brainer for any first-time visitor, and if Aussies already know how to ride the waves, they can spend the early morning hours taking in the dawn as they work out their entire body. While wading in the cool and refreshing waters, visitors should talk to the locals who come to the beach nearly every day to hang out with Mother Nature - they may provide their own advice for the best restaurants, hikes and activities in the area. If the waves fall flat, that's no excuse for Aussie travellers hoping to stay fit. They can rent a stand-up paddle board and work their core muscle group until they feel the burn.
After exercising, travellers can replenish their energy by heading to any number of health food stores on Oahu, including Andy's sandwich shop in Manoa Valley. This tiny, hole-in-the-wall eatery serves light and refreshing sandwiches, as well as an awesome brunch on the weekend, which fitness gurus can wash down with a super smoothie filled with acai berries and spirulina.
