If you are anything like me and don’t like to give up your exercise routine while traveling, you’ll be delighted to learn that our plight has been recognized. From river cruise ships to hotel chains, more and more options are available for exercise enthusiasts away from home.
Is cruising fit really a thing? Well, yes! Small cruise ships like the Paul Gauguin and the Windstar fleet have a water sports platform on the back of the ship allowing you to kayak, paddle board, wind surf and snorkel right off the back of the ships. River cruise company Avalon Waterways offers a series of Active Discovery cruises for the active clients that want to take a guided running tour around Vienna, hike along the Danube for a spectacular view or bike along the Rhine. All of that PLUS a menu that serves fresh, local and healthful food at each meal. Aerobics, yoga, Pilates and circuit training are available at no cost on Silversea Cruises. Pretty sweet!
Many hotels and resorts also strive to support your wellness habit. Zoetry resorts in the Caribbean specializes in wellness serving only gourmet, fresh, local foods; and offering yoga and meditation to guests, all done in a tranquil environment that will help you destress and recharge. Couples Swept Away Resort in Jamaica has the largest gym facility in the Caribbean, a huge lap pool, included scuba, wakeboarding, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and more. Westin Hotels & Resorts will lend you workout clothes, including sneaks, offers rooms equipped with Peloton bikes as an option for guests, and even has an “Eat Well” menu for kids.
There are lots of options to stay fit and eat well while on vacation. From the ideas to the detailed itinerary, from support while traveling to the return home, I'm here to help make your vacation awesome.
