If there is one downside to a luxurious, all-inclusive resort vacation, it is the gluttonous feeling you may have after indulging in the ‘all-you-can-eat-and-drink’ concept. After all, it’s all but impossible to avoid the allure of gourmet buffets and tropical drinks. But there are many ways of enjoying your stay without coming home feeling guilty. Your best bet is to book a trip packed with exciting activities capable of convincing you to get up and start moving! Here are just a few of the many resorts that cater to a fit-friendly vacation:
There’s no need to abandon your running program while you’re on vacation. Pack your best pair of running shoes and get ready to sweat it out at the El Dorado Casitas Royale. Getting motivated for a big run can be difficult when you’re surrounded by tasty meals and relaxing spa treatments, so be sure to sign up for the resort’s 5K race, which takes place every Friday. El Dorado Casitas Royale is also home to a huge pool and an on-site gym, so it’s a great place to visit if you’re preparing for an upcoming race!
Vacationers absolutely adore the magnificent scenery at Secrets The Vine Cancun. Not only can these gorgeous views be accessed from the resort’s luxurious guestrooms and suites, they also are on full display at the 12th floor gym. You’ll actually look forward to your hour on the treadmill, as it will give you the opportunity to gaze at the bright blue water and white sand of Cancun’s lovely beaches. If you’re not a gym rat, you can still burn those extra calories while taking part in pool volleyball, yoga classes and even a game of football.
As tough as it can be to keep yourself on track while staying at an all-inclusive resort, it’s even more challenging to promote healthy habits when your kids are in tow. Your tykes can burn off a little excess energy at one of Sandos Playacar’s family water aerobics classes. These aerobics sessions take place in the pool and on the beach — and they’re fun for all ages and all ability levels!
From water aerobics to Zumba classes and everything in between, there really is no reason why you should have to spend your entire vacation sitting around. If you book a trip at the right resort, you just might return feeling better (and more relaxed!) than you did before you left.
