Finding the time to exercise when travelling is difficult.
From dealing with jet lag to adjusting to a new environment, it’s easy to “press pause” on exercise until you return from your trip.
Reformer Pilates is the perfect workout to do overseas, as it is short, but intense, meaning you can stay fit without compromising your holiday!
We spoke to Christina from @love.christina.xo, who travels for a living, about the best ways to fit exercise into your travel routine.
What are your favourite ways to keep fit while travelling?
I love to find a Pilates studio, like Studio Pilates, for a workout. I also practise yoga and enjoy barre classes, walking and running on the beach.
What is it that you like about Pilates?
love the strength and flexibility it gives me and how it works my core. I was surprised at how effective a Pilates workout can be. You really feel the impact the next day and, after a few sessions, you start to notice more significant changes in your strength and flexibility.
How do you find the time to work out with such a busy schedule, especially when you’re away overseas?
I try to prioritise my workout, so I’ll do it at the start of the day or mid-afternoon, after a day of sightseeing. Just doing some resistance work with a stretch band or going for a walk is all it takes.
What is your #1 tip for staying healthy while travelling?
To exercise every day, even if it’s just walking. Eat properly and avoid skipping meals. Enjoy the local produce and take time to focus on both your physical and mental health.
