Travel takes us away from our usual routines to fun places where we can kick back and relax. Get spring break ready, not just for a bathing suit but for all the food and activities you’ll take part in, by using this simple bodyweight circuit workout. This is something you can easily do in the weeks leading up to your vacation, and what you can do while on vacation so that you don’t lose any fitness progress already made.
This bodyweight circuit combines strength training and some cardio to really tackle the whole body. From arms to abs, glutes, and legs, each move will activate your muscles and get your heart rate up. We recommend going through this circuit two or three times to really reap the benefits of the exercise. You can go for time or number of reps for each one of these moves, so shoot for 30 seconds or 20 reps on each exercise. Grab a towel and head down to the beach to do this workout, or do it in the comfort of your own room. When we work hard, we get to play hard, and fitness is no exception!
Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any diet or exercise program.

Vacation means relaxation, and missing a couple of workouts here and there will not derail you at all; in fact, your body will benefit from some rest days here and there. But if you want to come home and not feel like you’ve fallen behind, then a workout like this done 2-4 times while on vacation can help you feel good and still stay on track with exercise. Working out on vacation is a great way to fight jet lag and to help offset all of the delicious food you’re planning on indulging in.
We’ve made a video to demonstrate each move. Check it out!
Again, always consult with your healthcare provider before starting any diet or exercise program.
