Let's FITCATION it up!

Let’s talk about the latest trend in travel: FITCATIONS! 

Maybe you need an example: exotic yoga retreats, winter wonderland snowshoeing adventures, summiting mountainous peaks, stand-up paddle boarding in turquoise waters…

Now have I caught your attention?

So your interest has been piqued, let’s talk about WHY you would want to spend a vacation doing anything other than lounging on a beach with a mai tai…

ADVENTURE

We can all admit we love a good sweat session. A fitcation is a great way to break out of your sweat routine, which can start to get a little monotonous at home. Trying something new gets you out of your comfort zone in so many ways. Maybe it’s something new in a place you’ve never been before, like when I went surfing in Costa Rica or tango dancing in Buenos Aires! It’s a great way to explore a new place in an unusual way.

Or maybe it’s a beloved activity, like when I go “home” to Colorado and go skiing.

Or maybe it’s something you do all the time and you’re just switching it up a bit, like signing up for a race with a friend. I loved training for my first half marathon while studying abroad in Spain! I was with my friends running around Sevilla for 6 weeks for a race in Lisbon, Portugal. What’s not to LOVE about that??

VEGGING! 

I love being active, and then I love being totally lazy! My normal beach vacation routine, whether I’m at home with my parents at the beach I’ve been going to for 20 years or a new place I’ve never been to before, I love waking up and sweating immediately! Going surfing, SUP-ing, kayaking, running on the beach, there are so many ways to have fun and break a sweat at the beach. In no particular order, I’ll wake and sweat, have breakfast, and then go veg on the beach with a romance novel for hours. It’s absolute heaven. And I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the laziness without first getting after it!

BONDING

Bonding over a fun activity, especially a new one in a new place, really brings people together. Whether you’re traveling with friends or making new ones, it’s amazing to experience it together. To chat over the day’s events over a post-sweat beer, commiserate over sore muscles, and encourage each other out on the trail. It’s one of my favorite ways to make memories…

GETTING HEALTHY

A fitcation is the perfect way to decompress! It takes my natural de-stress technique of sweating and moving, and combines it with the fun and relaxation of a vacation. 

Stress just melts away on a fitcation. I’m either moving or vegging all day long, I’m sleeping enough, there’s minimal stress, I’m eating well, I’m with amazing people. All the essential elements of feeling happy and healthy!
