CrossFit on the Go: Staying Fit While Travelling

Hello, fellow wanderlust-infected Gen Z’s! Sophie here, your favourite 24-year-old blogging guru and fitness enthusiast. Today, I’m going to share my secrets for staying fit while travelling. Yes, you heard it right! No more excuses like “I can’t work out; I’m on vacation.” Because let’s face it, we all know that a week of indulgence can lead to a month of regret (and extra gym time).

Why CrossFit?

CrossFit is an ideal workout for travellers because of its versatility. You don’t need a fancy gym or expensive equipment to do these workouts. All you need is your bodyweight and maybe a couple of household items (more on this later). Plus, CrossFit workouts are often short but intense – perfect for squeezing in between sightseeing or before breakfast.

Plan Ahead

Before you start packing your bags and planning your itinerary, take some time to research workouts that you can do while travelling. There are plenty of CrossFit routines available online that require little to no equipment. Bookmark these or save them offline so that you have them ready when needed.

Workout Anywhere

The beauty of CrossFit is that it doesn’t require much space. You can easily do a workout in your hotel room, at the park, or even at the beach! Here are some exercises you can incorporate into your travel routine:

  • Burpees: A full-body exercise that gets your heart pumping.
  • Air Squats: Great for toning those legs and glutes – essential after those long flights!
  • Sit-ups: Keep your core strong and ready for all those beach photos.
  • Push-ups: A classic bodyweight move that targets your upper body.

You can create a circuit with these exercises, doing each for a minute and repeating the circuit three to four times. Remember, the aim is intensity!

Pack Smart

If you want to take your workout up a notch, consider packing some lightweight equipment like resistance bands or a skipping rope. These are great for adding variety to your workouts without taking up much space in your luggage. And let’s be real, we need that extra space for souvenirs and duty-free shopping!

Stay Hydrated and Nutritious

We all know how tempting it can be to indulge in local cuisines (I’m looking at you, Italian gelato). However, remember to balance it out with nutritious choices as well. Stay hydrated and try to incorporate fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains into your meals. This will not only help fuel your workouts but also keep you feeling good while exploring new places.

Listen to Your Body

Travelling can be tiring – different time zones, long flights or bus rides, lots of walking… It’s important to listen to what your body needs. If you’re feeling exhausted or unwell, give yourself permission to rest. You don’t have to work out every day; it’s about maintaining a balance between staying active and enjoying your trip.

Sophie’s Personal Tips

To wrap things up (but not conclude because who likes conclusions?), here are some personal tips from my travel diary:

  1. Morning Workouts: I prefer working out in the morning. It not only kick-starts my day but also ensures I get my workout done before the day’s adventures.
  2. Travel Buddy: Find a travel buddy who is also into fitness. It’s always easier to motivate each other and stick to your routine.
  3. Workout Playlist: Create a killer workout playlist. Music can really help set the pace of your workout and make it more enjoyable.

Fellow Gen Z’s, travelling doesn’t have to mean giving up on your fitness goals. With a little planning and creativity, you can easily incorporate CrossFit into your travel routine. So go ahead, book that trip and stay fit while exploring the world! Cheers!
