Time for a vacation but don’t want to skip out on your workout routine? We have got you covered! Stay fit on the go with a single or no equipment with the freedom of working out in a villa, by the pool, on the beach or on a hilltop.
Skipping Rope Workout
All the cardio from using a skipping rope is a good way to burn of those extra holiday calories while on the go. Using a skipping rope helps with flexibility, stamina and coordination as well. Just put a lightweight skipping rope into one of your socks while packing and you are ready! Try a ten minute routine, 1 minute on and 30 seconds off.
Tabata is a four-minute fat burning exercise that is as effective as an hour on a treadmill. This is a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) routine, a sure way to make you feel healthy while on holiday. Try jumping squates, crawls, walking lunges, press ups and a plank, 45 seconds workout with 15 seconds rest, repeated eight times.

If you are not the sort of person to like working out indoors and consider yourself not motivated enough (or perhaps, lazy), you can make an effort to stay fit by walking to places instead of using taxis or buses. The easiest and most fun way as it would also let you explore quaint places while hiking in the hills, trecking along the beach or even a late night stroll.
Yoga has various health benefits that should not be ignored. Concentration on breathing during the asanas is beneficial for not only the mental wellbeing but also the lungs and heart, improving your blood circulation. Yoga is a quick way to strengthen muscles as well. If you are a gym freak, yoga might just be perfect for you to try while on a break! Set your mat up for a morning flow, set your intention for the day and you are ready to go. Try out Phoebe's Detox Yoga Poses.
