6 Tips for Sticking to Your Workout Routine During Holiday Travel - FITS®

November 22, 2019

Whether you’re in the middle of a strict training program or simply trying to maintain your routine, nothing has the potential to throw off your workout mojo more than the holidays. Between busy schedules and travel commitments, it can be more and more difficult to find the time and resources to stick to your goals.

Before you throw in the towel and decide to just start fresh in the new year, we have a few tips to help you stay consistent.

Plan ahead

Don’t wait until you’re already on the road or at your destination to figure out how to fit in your workouts. Depending on your accommodations and plans, there are likely plenty of options to make your workout still happen — they just may require a little planning ahead. 

Be flexible

However, as important as planning ahead can be in maintaining your goals, you also may need to embrace a little flexibility. For instance, if making it to the gym isn’t possible, you can still get a killer at-home workout with minimal equipment. It might not be the exact workout you’d planned, but it can still move you closer to your goals.

Pack workout gear

The simple act of packing your running shoes and workout clothes helps sets you up for fitness success when on the road. It would be a shame to waste all the valuable suitcase space and not put your gear to good use, right?

Get an accountability buddy

Depending on where you’re traveling and who you’re spending the holidays with, encouraging your loved ones to join you in your workout adds an extra element of accountability that can help ensure you get it done.   

Check out local options

Most gyms and studios offer day passes or guest access, and traveling can be a great excuse to try out a new type of workout. Hop online and look up local options where you’ll be to see if there’s something new and exciting you can try.

Don’t beat yourself up

Lastly, don’t be too hard on yourself if your workout routine slips a little while traveling for the holidays. While there are plenty of ways to make it work, it’s also important to prioritize family time and allow yourself to relax.

Sock Sizing

The Perfect Fit Starts With the Right Size.

Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.

Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.

Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)

How Do You Determine Sock Size?

Sock sizes are typically measured in inches, not by your shoe size. So, a sock size 6-8 will comfortably fit someone whose feet are between six and eight inches long. However, at FITS®, we make it easy for you to choose the ideal sock size without having to measure your foot. Simply use our sock size conversion chart based on your shoe size to select the right fit for you. 

How Do You Measure Your Foot for Socks?

To measure your foot for socks, measure the length from the heel of your foot to the tip of your longest toe. The measurement in inches correlates to your sock size. For example, if your foot is 10 inches long, a sock size 9-11 should fit you comfortably. At FITS®, you can skip this step and find your sock size based on your shoe size using our conversion chart. 

What Is the Sock Size Conversion?

The sock size conversion refers to sock size compared to shoe size. While all companies may vary slightly on which size socks to purchase based on your shoe size, you can always measure your foot to find the right fit for you. 

What is Sock Size to Shoe Size?

Because sock sizes are determined by the length of your foot in inches vs. your shoe size, shoe and sock sizes differ. The FITS® sock size to shoe size conversion is as follows:

Knowing this makes it easy to choose the ideal sock size based on your shoe size without measuring your foot. 

What Age is Sock Size 9-12?

Sock sizes typically don’t correlate with age. For kids, age can be a general indicator of what size sock they’ll need, but everyone is different. An adult sock size 9-12 fits anyone whose feet are approximately nine to twelve inches long. For kids’ sock sizing, check with the company to find exact details to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit.
