Thank you to Erin Holmes-Bender for including me in her Travelocity article: 10 Creative Ways To Stay Fit While You Travel
If you fear to step on the scales after returning from your vacation, don’t! Erin Bender of Explore With Erin has gathered some of the fittest travel bloggers in the world to help you stay fit while you travel. And not in the usual “watch what you eat” way either. These methods are anything but boring.
There is no doubt that vacations usually have us returning home a little plumper. Trying local cuisine, sipping on crazy milkshakes, spending the days on sun beds and cocktails by the pool do not help our waistlines. In fact, it’s incredibly hard to stay fit while you travel. So in 2017, I made a conscious effort to stay healthy, even while traveling and lost nearly 60 pounds.
I discovered a ton of ways to stay fit while you travel. Ones you’ve probably already used. Get a hotel with a gym, drink water, walking tours, avoiding taxis, yoga classes, wellness retreats and more. You’ve most likely read about them all. But then I discovered there were people staying fit in more creative ways. Travel is no excuse for these 10 traveling pros.
Pack A Hula Hoop
Lisa from We Said Go Travel always travels with a Hula Hoop!
“Before I left on a year excursion to travel around South East Asia, I signed up for a hula-hoop class for adults. I had no idea that I would travel the world with a collapsible hoop in my backpack. At first, I started to hoop for up to 30 minutes listening to disco tunes and developed rock star abs! Now, I have hooped in a jail in the Philippines to Gangnam Style, on a bar in New Orleans at Coyote Ugly and on the beach at sunset in Oahu. It is a great way to meet new friends and stay fit while you travel!”
Enjoy my videos below of my travels with a hula hoop in jail at the Philippines, in Oahu at sunset, on the bar at Coyote Ugly, in the Solomon Islands and Dominican Republic.

Immerse yourself in Scottsdale, Arizona for art, architecture, and hiking. Whether you want to golf, shop or even learn to surf, this is the place for you.

Fantastic food, incredible mountains, and stunning sunrises await your visit.
