RunWESTIN Concierge Chris Heuisler shares his tips on maintaining a healthy lifestyle while traveling across the country each week for races.
It’s challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle when you are away from home, by using these tips and tricks you can help avoid the common travel pitfalls.
- “I have no willpower with gas station or airport treats”:Hitting the road without packing snacks is like heading to the grocery store on an empty stomach: it’s not going to end well. Set yourself up for healthy eating on the go by packing fruits, veggies, bars, and other healthy snacks. Once you arrive at your hotel, try to choose the healthy local options from the menu.
- “I’m not familiar with my destination”:Ask your hotel if they have running maps or suggested routes for their guests. If they don’t, try doing some research before you leave to avoid the stress of finding routes once you arrive.
- “My travel schedule is jam packed”:Look at your itinerary before you leave and find spaces when you can squeeze in a workout and check the hotel gym hours. Even a 30 minute workout is better than nothing. Then write down your plan. Studies show you are more likely follow through if you write it down.
