I still like to keep up my fitness routine while we are on holiday so on our recent camping trip to Sandy Cape Recreational Park I was making use of the area.
Swim to Rotto is a 19.7km ocean race and it is an event that I am training for. Most of my training has been in the pool so I made the use of the bay and fitted in plenty of swimming training. Dealing with the currents proves to be a bit of a challenge so it was good to get some ocean training in.
Going for a beach run was my warm up before I started my work out and lets face it running with a view is much nicer! If you are new to beach running start by running at low tide on the hard sand by the waters edge.
Anywhere work out
I have put together a circuit that you can do anywhere and you don’t need any equipment. Warm up by going for a walk or run and then get straight into it.
Repeat this work out 2 or 3 times and remember to always consult your doctor before you take on any exercise program.
How do you keep fit while travelling?

Great blog. Being former Surf Life Savers we like to ocean swim and we take every opportunity to bushwalk on our travels. Regular stretching is a must and can easily be incorporated into a traveling lifestyle.
I would love to join a Surf Life Saving club but I am not that confident in the waves! I guess there is only one way to get better!
David and I cart our bicycles around the world, which BTW is a huge hassle, but it does keep us fit and trim. I really notice the kilos pile on if we go to a destination without our bikes.
That is great that you take your bikes with you. You also see so much more when you are on your bike exploring.

Our camping trips inevitably involve lots of walking, whether it’s trekking up mountains or bush walking. Its such a great way to experience a place and keep fit.
I also find that you tend to do lots of exercise while you are on holidays as you are off exploring. The only problem is I tend to eat and drink more!
