To all of our clients, warmer weather is just around the corner (or here already!). Many of us will be traveling away from the studio and spending more time with family, friends, or just away from the office. It is time to rest and digest rather than constantly taxing that fight-or-flight portion of our brains. Kick back, get some rest, and put yourself as far away from your work as you can.
Aside from breaking from work, health and fitness should not be forgotten. Sure, I will not ask any of you to lift weights and exercise hard every day during vacation (it would not be a vacation otherwise), but neither will I encourage a decline in fitness levels. We have plenty of recommended travel workout plans posted here on our website, but besides that food must also be taken into account.
Here is an excerpt from a book written for the traveling professional athlete by expert coaches. These coaches, Mark Verstegen and Pete Williams, are some of the top professionals in their field and cater to the highest level of performers in the country (athletes and businessmen/women alike). This is an excerpt of recommendations they give to athletes when traveling from their book “Every Day is Game Day: The Proven System of Elite Performance to Win All Day, Every Day.” Take it with a grain of salt (not literally). These are excellent guidelines for the everyday vacationer.
Good luck and stay healthy and relaxed during your next vacation from Accelerated Fitness Solutions!
