Vacation: train or rest?

This is a very special time for our family. We are days away from our oldest daughter’s wedding. While it is kind of like a vacation week, it is also is uniquely different. I can’t really explain this amazing feeling of anticipation. We have that holiday feeing going on with a lot of little tasks.

While I have the urge to workout everyday, I do not have the mental focus to do long sessions. Let’s put is this way: I like the idea of working out but I don’t want to miss out on any of the fun! 

My clients express a similar feeling before, during, and after vacations. Getting in workouts during these times is a low priority, however that feeling of doing something physical to ensure future fitness is so gratifying!  Sweat therapy is real and a major stress reliever (if the workout doesn’t take up too much time).

How can we satisfy our desire to workout and still have time to relax? The solution is a short effective workout.

Here is one of my favorite workouts that you can pull up on your phone or laptop and do anywhere. 

Beach Vacation Workout

If you are having a vacation, a staycation, or just a crazy week – a short intense workout might be just what you need! #sweatequity

By the way, if you choose to take a rest week that might be just as good for you. We all need to take periodic rests to recharge. However, if you are craving a speedy sweat session try this vacation workout
