Let’s be real, your workout motivation is never higher than the weeks leading up to a vacay: you’ve got a clear goal (mainly to look good on Insta) and you’re thundering towards it.
Then, you skip a workout or two and the indulgences set in. The next thing you know, all that hard work is undone. Sound familiar?
Here’s the thing, going on holiday doesn’t have to mean piling on unwanted kgs. There’s one very simple solution:
Travel with your trainer!
Fitness retreats are bursting on to the scene with everyone jumping on board – from boutique personal trainers to KX Pilates and the giants at F45. Whether you want to head to Bali, Thailand or even the USA, workout once a day or three, there’s a fitness trip for you.
There are a ton of benefits to maintaining your training schedule throughout your holiday, particularly if it’s a short and sharp session. You can let the guilt wash away any slip-ups (looking at you, ice cream for dinner), plus you’ll feel way more energized and clear-minded for activities.
If you’re suffering from jetlag, a sweat session can also help you get over it quicker (better sleep = better adjustment to the time zone change). You’ll also be in a better mood - a godsend when you’re travelling with others and need to maintain a certain level of calm.
Keen to test it out?
Contiki have teamed up with F45 to create an exclusive USA adventure.

You can also bet the crew will be 100 per cent up for a Runyon Canyon Hike to spot celebs and get incredible views across LA. You can find out more here.
