Editor’s Note: As you all know, travel and fitness are two passions dear to our hearts. We are honored to have compiled our Top 10 Ways to Stay Healthy While Traveling, originally written for Seven Corners.

To travel is to live, but it also throws your normal fitness schedule out the window. Between jet lag, unhealthy airport food, a chaotic schedule, and a lack of fitness centers, it’s easy to fall out of shape while traveling. While vacation is a time to sit back, relax, and treat yourself to a proper relaxing trip, we cannot pretend that those extra thousand piña colada calories disappear just because we’re on holiday. Here at Seven Corners, we’re about living life to the fullest so you can let loose on vacation, while still being kind to your waistline and staying healthy. While travel and fitness usually go together like oil and water, we put together a list of sure-fire ways on how to stay healthy while traveling.

How to stay healthy - while traveling

While at home, it’s far too convenient to hop on a car or take public transportation to our desired destination.

Walking is one of the best forms of exercise and what better to explore a new city than on foot!

There are dozens of free walking tours in almost every major city. While you’re exploring and touring, you get to meet new people, take in the sights, and get your workout in. This is an easy way to help you stay healthy…Talk about efficiency!
