Tips to Stay Fit While On Vacation

Running on the Beach in Panama City Beach

You've worked hard all year, and now that vacation is finally here. You're determined to make the most of your time off, but you want to enjoy yourself and keep your healthy-living efforts going strong. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to do both! Here are some helpful tips for staying fit and eating right while on vacation.

Plan Ahead for Where to Exercise

If you're looking to stay in shape while on vacation, Panama City Beach is the perfect place. You can work out at the beach, where there's no shortage of opportunities for fun and socializing. The sand and water provide natural resistance, which makes exercising easier. From paddle boarding to kayaking, you're sure to find something to keep you active and having fun. If you prefer the air-conditioned indoors for your workouts, take advantage of our Panama City Beach resort fitness centers or check out drop-in rates at our local gyms.

Take Advantage of the Local Cuisine

Plan to enjoy some special meals without going overboard. It’s not always easy to make the right choices when eating out, and it can be even harder when traveling. But it turns out that if you’re looking for healthy choices, ditch the chain restaurants and eat like a local. In Panama City Beach, that means eating at one of our restaurants like Lotus Cafe & Fluid Lounge, sushi at Shan Kishi, and fresh juice and foods at Jacob Juice or simply asking the restaurant if they'll make some healthy modifications to your meals.

Explore Panama City Beach on Foot or Bike

Exploring Panama City Beach on foot or bike is a great way to enjoy the sights, sounds, and activities of this beach town. There are several options for you to choose from when it comes to getting around, including bike paths and rentals. Bike trails allow you to explore the city at your own pace, while bike tours can be booked with local tour companies that will take care of all the logistics for you so you can enjoy every second of your journey.There are also many walking trails for visitors who prefer being active in nature like Panama City Beach Conservation Park and St. Andrews State Park.

Enjoy Your Stay in Panama City Beach

It's easy to find healthy options in restaurants or even cook at home in your vacation rental with fresh ingredients from one of our local grocery stores and farmer's markets. There are also many opportunities for exercise like the beach, walking trails and bike paths all over town. We hope this article has given you some ideas on how to stay fit while living here - have fun eating right and staying active!
