For many people, a holiday is for relaxing, eating what they want and drinking a lot more than they normally would, which basically means falling into some rather unhealthy habits while they relax. While this may suit some holidaymakers, because after all, a holiday is for taking it easy and unwinding, it's not the best approach for everyone, especially if they are very sporty, because the thought of doing next to no exercise for two weeks or longer will seem very unappealing. So if you want to keep fit on holiday, here are a few ways you can do just that, without having to compromise on your holiday activities.

Depending on your accommodation, your hotel or hostel may have an exclusive gym or studio that guests are welcome to use. This is great for first thing in the morning, as it means you can squeeze a workout in before breakfast. Also if you're going on holiday to a country that has a warmer clime, the hotel will probably have a swimming pool on the grounds, or at least have access to a nearby pool. Swimming is a great workout, because it's great for toning up your body, which makes it a great exercise to do on holiday, because it not only tones you up, it also keeps you cool in the heat.

Depending on your holiday destination, there could be a number of activities that you can do that will keep you fit and healthy. The easiest and cheapest holiday activity is walking, which you can squeeze into your daily activities, such as walking, walking to the beach, sightseeing attractions, the local shops and anywhere else that you need to be.

After walking, you can arrange to go on a hiking tour if there are mountains or hills in the region that you are holidaying in, these will not only keep you fit, but also give you a fantastic view of your holiday destination. Bikes are also readily available in many holiday destinations and holidaymakers can hire them for a few days or a few weeks for very competitive prices, like swimming, cycling is another great way to keep fit on holiday, as it's a low impact sport that helps keep you toned without putting unnecessary stress on your joints.

So before you book you next holiday, make sure that you've thoroughly researched your destination and your hotel so you know what will be available to you once you've arrived at your accommodation. So once you've settled in your destination and accommodation, such as the Chaaya Island Dhonveli Hotel, it's time to get physical and start your keep-fit regime again.
