How to Stay Fit on Your Summer Vacation

You’ve worked hard all year and perhaps more importantly, you’ve been sticking to your fitness goals. You’ve been working out, eating right, and being kind to yourself throughout the process. You deserve a reward, and you’ve gotten it! You’re finally going on vacation. Only now, you’re worried about maintaining this new healthy lifestyle while on vacation. You don’t exactly want to be hitting the gym constantly while your friends and family are lazing by the pool, but you don’t want to counteract all of the progress you’ve made thus far. What can you do to ensure that your vacation is not only fun, but also fitness filled? First of all, read on to learn more about vacation deals at Callaway Resort & Gardens near Atlanta. Second of all, stop worrying, (easier said than done), and remember that health is a process and to be gentle with yourself when you make less than healthy choices. Life is more fun with donuts, anyway!

Get Out and Move!

The best way to get to know a new place is by really getting out there and living in it. Nothing makes you feel more at ease than strolling through wildlife and gazing up through pine trees towering overhead. Taking a hike is an excellent way to stay fit while on vacation because it’s essentially sightseeing with added cardiovascular benefits! You may choose the Mountain Creek Trail that winds through the Georgia woodlands. There’s also the Rhododendron trail, which leads to Hummingbird Lake wherein you can relax or perhaps go bird watching! You’ll be so busy getting lost in the beauty of the world around you, that you’d forget you’ve made a healthy decision! We have the perfect hiking and biking trails that you might need to stay a couple nights at the Lodge and Spa, Villas, or Cottages in Georgia!


Make a Racket!

Then again, maybe walking is a bit too slow moving for you. Perhaps what you’re looking for is something a bit more high-intensity with a little more group interaction. It’s easy to work out while having fun during a spirited game of tennis and whether you’re new to the sport or a total pro you’ll find you’re at home on the court. With seasoned experts standing by, a fully stocked pro shop should you need it, and optional weekend immersive courses, you’ll be playing like Venus in no time! Tennis is an excellent way to get your heart rate up and keep you engaged and moving while still enjoying yourself. If you’re planning on extending your vacation, ask about discounted rates for overnight guests!

Go on a Scavenger Hunt!

You’re on vacation after all! This is the time to reconnect with your inner child and hunt for treasure! You can go for natural walks near Atlanta and, by plugging in GPS coordinates, follow online directions through the real world to find actual items! These items range from small toys and trinkets to books or postcards and can be traded or kept as souvenirs.

It’s easy to stay active and healthy when booking a weekend getaway at Callaway Resort & Gardens. With such easy access to scenic trails, well-maintained tennis courts, and activities to partake in, you’re sure to be engaged and excited. Book your next vacation today!
