3 secrets to staying fit on your holiday

I've been on holiday for about a week now and still have almost a full week left. Woohoo! Seeing as I had the opportunity to chat with fitness gurus Laura Jackson and Amanda Quinn of Canada's boot camp Fit Chicks the other week, I wanted to jump on the chance to learn the secrets to staying fit on vacation. I usually conveniently forget about staying physically fit on holiday, but I've been working hard at running lately and have been feeling great, so I want to keep it up. Don't worry, I'm still stuffing my face with delicious Turkish food! Read on for fabulous tips on how to stay fit on vacation.

1. It's that time of year where lots of us are going on vacation. Do you have any tips for staying fit while on holiday? Vacation is one of the hardest times of the year to stay on track. Our best advice? Keep moving...and here is how: 1. Plan, plan, plan! Once you know where you are going, do a little location research to find out what activities would work in the area. Going to the cottage? Check out hiking and biking trails, and swimming areas. Not an outdoorsy type? Bring workout DVDs to do on your laptop, check out fitness classes in the area, or bring a printable workout to do in your hotel room. As long as you know what your options are in advance, you can easily stay on track with your fitness goals. 2. Wear a pedometer. Walking is one of the best ways to get active while on vacation. Throw on a pedometer to track your steps, set a goal, and then go exploring! Ten-thousand steps is equivalent to approximately five miles and 500 calories burned, so you won't have to worry so much about the extra ice cream you may have enjoyed on your travels. 3. Make it a family affair. Choose a vacation activity that you can enjoy with family and friends. Not only does this help promote healthy living for everyone, but you also get to spend some much needed quality time with the peeps you love. Do you have any tips for staying fit on vacation?
