Working out regularly and getting into a healthy routine can be challenging to begin with, and for some people, going on holiday can cause a setback in achieving their fitness goals. If you are the type of person that prefers to completely relax on holiday and would rather get back into your exercise routine once you have returned home, this is completely fine.
However, if you are the type of person who enjoys being active whilst traveling and want to continue to progress your fitness levels, then the Echelon Fit app is the perfect on-the-go fitness solution for you. To help you choose the best workouts for you whilst you are away, we have identified our favourites for every travel situation.
When you are short on space, try…
Weekend Roundup Stretch
If you are limited to a small space, then we would recommend trying our weekend round up stretch. These 10-minute stretching classes are the perfect workout for either a hotel room or anywhere that limits extended movement. With the classes being nice and short, and having a low intensity level, you can easily fit a round up stretch class in at the end of a tiring day to promote recovery.
When you need to decompress, try...
We recommend packing a yoga mat for your next getaway, so you can release all of your stress and tension with a Vinyasa yoga class. Vinyasa yoga is an excellent workout that builds balance, mobility, and strength, whilst connecting movement with your breath to promote calmness.
When you have access to a hotel gym, try...
Intro to Rhythm Run
Traveling can be an excellent opportunity for Echelon members to try a new piece of equipment. The majority of hotel and local gyms will have a treadmill. You can use your Echelon Fit® app with any smart device, and we suggest trying our rhythm run class if this is your first time running on a treadmill. As the name suggests, our rhythm classes are fun, music-driven workouts, perfect for getting some cardio in on the go.
When you need to keep the noise down, try...
Slow Flow Yoga
Slow flow yoga is the perfect workout if you are trying to keep the noise down and not disturb anyone. Combining breathing with slow and controlled movements, slow flow yoga can be practised anywhere. Slow flow is also great for yoga newbies or for those who want a lower-intensity workout.
When you need fresh air, try…
Our outdoor run classes are great for when you are out and about and want to get a workout in whilst enjoying the scenery. Our outdoor run classes are guided runs that have been designed to take you out of the house and into the fresh air, so you can enjoy all the benefits of an Echelon Stride class without the treadmill!
When you are short on time, try…
Any movement is better than no movement, and if you are short on time whilst you are traveling, then a quick ten minute HIIT exercise maximizes every minute with high-intensity intervals. It also helps to relieve stress and give you a boost of confidence.
Top Tip: Be sure to pack your comfiest trainers and workout apparel. If you are not prepared and fail to bring suitable exercise clothing and footwear, then the likelihood of you working out on your travels is slim. If you are heading to a hot country, it is best to pack lightweight
