5 Ways to Workout While on Vacation

Summer is right around the corner, and you’ve worked hard to be swimsuit ready for your trip to South Walton. Anxious about how to keep up your fitness routine while on vacation? You shouldn’t be. Getting away means more than changing locations. It means taking a break from your regular routine. This change of scenery is good for the mind in the same way that changing up your exercise routine is good for your body. Here are 5 ways to switch up your workout while on vacation.

In the Sand

The beaches of South Walton are known for powder white sand that is so soft it actually squeaks when you walk across it. Get to squeaking with a power walk through the sand. Alternate from the water’s edge to the thick sand to get an intense cardio and leg workout. Working in fitness all while getting some Vitamin D and taking in the incredible sights of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

In the Water

The emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico are so refreshing you can’t help but to take a dip. Swimming through these crystal-clear waters is not only invigorating but a great cardiovascular and upper body workout. Swim against the current to strengthen muscle groups and increase endurance.

On a Board

Stand up paddle boarding has become a very popular way to workout along the beaches of South Walton. It’s so much fun you won’t even notice the incredible cardiovascular, upper body, and core workout you’re getting. Not to mention the ocean life you’ll discover while paddling through the Gulf of Mexico. Rent a board, paddle out, and enjoy the workout. You’ll be hooked!

On a Bike

South Walton’s scenic highway 30A is a beachfront roadway offering breathtaking views where you’ll find many bicyclists on a leisure ride. However, if you want to get your heart pumping there are over 200 miles of biking trails with varied levels of difficulty. Cycle through nature trails that traverse through longleaf pine flatwoods, wet prairie, coastal scrub swamplands, mountainous sand dunes, and freshwater coastal dune lakes. Prepare to sweat on this cycling adventure!

Beach Yoga

Skip the studio and practice yoga on the sugar sand beaches of South Walton. Beach Yoga 30A offers group classes for all levels. Book a private session and step on to the sand right outside of your Seagrove Beach Vacation Rental. From Gentle Yoga to dynamic Vinyasa Flow, you’ll love incorporating this “feel good” workout with the soothing sounds of Mother Nature.
