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.
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.
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.
