1. hey girl — lovely trip & lovely tips! sorry you had to evac early. glad you are safe though. i just did a recent post on keeping healthy habits on vacation, so I am a definite YES to your workout question. My go-tos are bodyweight high intensity training (burpees, pull ups, pistol squats, knee raises, chin ups, etc), plus you can run (or do yoga) about anywhere. My routine doesn’t change all that much from what I do at home. Great post!

    Mm, I love the thought of working out in front of the ocean. A perfect place, I think.

    Looking forward to seeing that recipe. It sounds *amazing*.

  3. dance parties are definitely my favorite! I’ve done a combo of dance/yoga in some small hotel rooms/ guest rooms while traveling, when the weather was prohibitive against running outside.

  4. Hi Faith! I’ve been reading your blog for a while and it’s great inspiration. I stopped going to the gym and started working out on my own about 2.5 years ago and have never looked back. Feeling that motivation comes exclusively from within and not from being pushed by an instructor or a working out environment (such as the gym) is truly empowering, plus it saves lots of time and money. One of my favorite workouts is going to the beach (I live on the coast), getting into the sea with the water halfway up my thighs and running along the shore like that. Great strength and endurance training for your whole body 🙂 I think the sea is truly therapeutic… the ultimate mood booster and awesome for any physical ailment too.

  5. Hi Faith,
    Just found your blog this morning while following a labyrinth of other fitness bloggers’ recommendations. I too am a PT and Group Fit instructor and still find it challenging to workout when away from the gym my favorite outdoor tool is my TRX. Hard to use on the beach though as you need an overhead structure to mount it on! Love your blog and wonderfully positive attitude. I blog at http://www.fitknitchick.wordpress.com. Come for a visit!

  6. Running is my fave do-almost-anywhere workout. But I also have a workout involving pushups, lunges, situps, dips, squats, and pullups (or not pullups if there’s not bar) that can be done pretty much wherever.
