Optimum health requires the mind, physical body and spirit to be in balance. SteemFit is focused on taking care of your health, your well-being and a concept for busy people with limited time.

Staying Fit During Travels
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not the easiest (in general), but it's even harder when you're out in the world, somewhere in a different country, without your gym, no dance class in my case, amazing food and a lot more distractions around. Even though I am consistent when it comes to working out, the first days in Barcelona I did not think about it one and that is OK. It's important to enjoy yourself sometimes and get a break, but after a few days and especially after eating many lovely treats and only little walking, it was time to get back to work!
There are many workouts you can do, without a gym or equipment. For example, the "spider-man" for Abs:

And without hesitation I dropped in the cold water
Swimming is an amazing way to work out while having fun!
As a cool down I did some water floating..
More Pool Fun..
And when we got back to the hotel I realized how great I felt! I love to feel strong, feel my muscles working and growing and especially if you have a beach or pool, the reward afterwards of going in the water is the best! Instead of laying in the sun, not moving, go for a run on the beach or go swimming.. and if you don't have a beach, pool or even gym around you can still go outside to the
There are many ways to get your workout in, while traveling. Wherever you are, you can always run and do exercises. Especially on the beach, it's tough, but fun at the same time.
I hope you enjoyed this Episode and use it as a reminder to stay fit on your next trip. No excuses!
