2017 Travel Fitness Trends
New Year’s resolutions, some say, are meant to be broken. However, our 2017 Travel Fitness Trends indicate it’s possible to combine traveling more and keeping fit, making it easy to accomplish these two resolutions in one go. Read on to learn more.
Actually taking a holiday
Project Time Off, backed by the US Travel Association, reports that a staggering 55% of American workers did not completely utilize their vacation days last year. Taking vacations, even short ones, has numerous mental and physical health benefits, so taking time off isn’t just an indulgence; it’s necessary for your mental well-being.
Buck the trend by planning your holidays in advance. Not only can you take advantage of cheaper flight tickets and accommodation, it’ll also give you a chance to manage your workload so you won’t come back to a mountain of work (the number one reason most Americans do not utilize their vacation days). Now that you’ve planned your holiday and packed your Pacsafe Venturesafe™ EXP45 Anti-theft 45L carry-on travel pack, you can take advantage of the next travel fitness trend …
Wellness vacations and retreats
If taking better care of your health was your 2017 resolution but you haven’t done as much as you liked, why not go on a wellness vacation? Start strong with these three travel fitness boot camps, which will give your mind and body the workouts you need. The compact Pacsafe Vibe 200 Anti-theft compact travel bag makes the perfect companion as you work out with its capacity to hold your water bottle and a fresh change of clothes while protecting your gadgets.
It’s not just all about workouts though; a good wellness holiday also includes healthy but delicious foods to keep you going. And that leads us to our next travel fitness trend …
Eating healthy and delicious food
One of the biggest travel trends of 2017 is eco-tourism, and with it comes a greater emphasis on healthy eating and living that doesn’t harm the environment. The farm-to-table dining concept is a growing trend among eco-friendly resorts that indirectly promotes clean and healthy eating, making eco-tourism a trend that encompasses the most important aspects of health and fitness. Use the Pacsafe Metrosafe™ LS140 anti-theft compact shoulder bag to keep your things secure yet easily accessible as you embark on your gourmet adventure.
And there are ways to keep fit even if you don’t take a wellness holiday or visit an eco-tourism resort …
Exercising while traveling
Bodyweight exercises are a great way to maintain your fitness levels while on holiday. Most don’t require any equipment and can be done in your hotel or dorm room in as little as 20 minutes. This fitness trend is one that took off in the gym and subsequently college dorms, and is now one of the most popular ways for travelers to stay active even when on holiday! Think of it as a “warm-up” for those days when you know you’ll be hiking or on your feet for long periods of time.
