Many people spend a whole year getting in shape for their holiday, before heading abroad and blowing their fitness regime in a blaze of excessive eating and drinking.
However, travelling abroad doesn’t necessarily mean regular gym users need to miss out on fitness activities and the United States is great example of this.
Whether its mountain biking, watersports or something else that takes your fancy, read on to discover our top five recommendations for fitness on the move in the USA.
Red Rocks Fitness – Denver
Red Rocks has hosted some of the world’s most memorable music events, but the venue also offers a summer fitness series that allows exercisers to admire the breathtaking surroundings while doing their workouts.
With music blasting through the natural amphitheatre as you exercise, it’s like your own personal concert where you are the fitness star.
If you fancy something different try Yoga on the Rocks – a truly unique experience where you twist, bend, fold and extend your body through a unique yoga experience alongside over 2,000 other yogis.
Daybreaker – Various Cities
Daybreaker is an early morning dance movement held in cities across the USA and around the world.
The parties start with a one hour yoga and fitness experience, before dancing with reckless abandon for two hours to invigorate you for the rest of your day.
Daybreaker parties are regularly advertised across social media and can use the same amount of energy as a treadmill session, but with the added of fun of a party atmosphere.
Utilise the Pala Casino Welcome Package after your workout to boost your budget for future Daybreaker events.
Red Mountain Resort – Utah
St George, Utah is a location that allows a customised adventure to Zion, Bryce Canyon National Park or Snow Canyon State Park.
Try world-class mountain and touring biking with a variety of scenic trails, or take part in canyoneering, hiking, horseback riding, rock climbing or kayaking.
The resort also offers team-building workshops, stress-management classes and spa services.
Head further afield and visit the spectacular Festival of Colours at the stunning Krishna Temple at Spanish Fork – the largest celebration of Holi in the western hemisphere.
Paddle Into Fitness – San Diego
Paddle Into Fitness has been offering stand-up paddleboard yoga classes in San Diego Bay since 2009.
Undertake a warm-up on the beach, before heading to the water for a variety of body weight training and cardio drills on the board.
The instability of the board moves everything up a notch, but if you do lose your balance be prepared for a soaking.
Clyde Park – Montana
Big Sky Yoga Retreats host a variety of styles of yoga retreats to suit both novice and expert exponents of the art.
Try the yoga and hiking retreat, which combines yoga and hiking with deep discussions, reflection, intention setting and meditation.
If you fancy exerting yourself even more check out Winter Wonderland – a three-night stay that includes daily yoga lessons, meditation, Nordic ski lessons and daily snowshoeing.
