How Not To Have Holiday Weight Gain?

Aug 18, 2007
As a professional fitness instructor, I often have clients asking me, "Hey Chris, I am going for a holiday vacation, I am afraid to gain weight during my vacation. What should I do?" or "I am going for my honeymoon and I always gain weight when I travel, can you teach me how to lose holiday weight gain without ruining my honeymoon?"

Actually the answer to holiday weight loss or preventive weight gain is a very simple. Just choose the holiday package with a lot of physical activities. Instead of going to the traditional tourist sight seeing trips, choose holiday activities that require you to burn calories and yet have fun. Yes, you can have a fun filled holiday and yet able to keep your weight in check!

Here are a few vacation holiday activities where you can have fun and yet will keep your weight easily in control.

Holiday Cruise - Your first thought would probably be how could you maintain your weight going on holiday cruises? It may escape you that most vacation cruise ships have sports facilities built in from tennis courts to gyms with full equipments and fitness personal trainers to boot. Some may even conduct weight loss classes on board the cruise liners. If you are going on a honeymoon cruise, what better way is there to lose weight and keep fit with your beloved spouse?

Winter Skiing - This is a no brainer. Skiing down mountain slopes require a lot of muscle work, coordination, cardio workout and flexibility. So can you imagine how many calories you can burn during your skiing winter holidays?

Weight loss camps - Sign up with a weight loss camp for your vacation. Weight loss camps are usually designed like a holiday resort and are usually located in very scenic locations such as on majestic mountains, pristine beaches or nestle in lush tropical rainforests. You can get a vacation holiday in a resort like environment and get to lose weight at the same time. Two for the price of one, eh?

Scuba diving - Did you ever notice that most scuba diving instructors have well toned muscles and attractive bodies? This is because they scuba dive almost every day leading novice divers sometimes up to 3 dives a day including night dives.

As a scuba diver and a former diving instructor myself, I know that the sport of scuba diving can be physically demanding for someone who is unfit and the activities burn a lot of calories. For example, you need to carry your own scuba gear, climb up and down the boats with heavy gear and at times swim against heavy currents every day at the same time looking after your trainees.

On top of that, the tan you get from sun exposure gives you a healthy glow and muscle toning illusion. So you want control your holiday weight gain? Go on a scuba diving vacation.

Use your creative imagination to easily come out with more holiday vacation ideas that can help you lose weight or at least not to have holiday weight gain.
