Few things can ruin those “get fit” resolutions quite like a vacation. Which is funny, considering all the time you spend slaving away at the gym in preparation for it. But this year, we’re here to prove that this doesn’t have to be the case. Behold, three alternatives to your typical willpower-wrecking escape.
1. Jet off to a fitness and wellness resort like Texas’s award-winning Lake Austin Spa Resort. You can dabble in outdoor Sun Salutations, ease sore muscles with a River Rock Massage, and stay nourished with Bon Appétit–approved low-calorie cuisine – all while thoroughly enjoying yourself.
2. Book an exotic trek. Hike the Inca Trail (there have been rumors about Machu Picchu closing for years – the time to go is now) or escape to the rainforest. Puerto Rico’s Carole’s Rainforest Villas offers hikers respite between the El Yunque National Forest’s 18 trails. And you don’t even need your passport.
3. Cruise. Yes, seriously. Where else can you find wave pools, zip lines, rock-climbing walls, mini golf, and indoor ice-skating rinks all within your reach? Today’s cruises are breaking that eat-all-day stereotype, fast. Try Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas, which actually lets you skydive on board.
