Beyond The Hotel Gym


The Best Resorts To Stay Fit

Sticking with a workout while on the road is admirable, but let’s face it – a routine is, well, routine, and a vacation should be anything but. A resort stay is a great opportunity to rethink one’s approach to fitness, taking it out of the gym and into the great outdoors. Multiple studies show that exercising outside offers a more holistic path to wellness; even a few minutes of physical activity in the open air is enough to boost one’s mood and reduce stress. There are so many resorts that play into a great workout in breathtaking destinations from mountain to desert to shore.



Equestrian Experiences in Pebble Beach is known for it’s fabulous golf, but there’s so much more here for active guests who want to soak up the natural beauty of the Central California coast. The resort’s Equestrian Center offers group and semi-private riding lessons as well as trail rides along the ruggedly beautiful beach or through the pristine Del Monte Forest.  Not only does horseback riding work core muscles and improve posture, but spending time with animals boosts serotonin levels, adding to the already positive mental health benefits of exercising outdoors.

Boating to Better Health in the Adirondacks at a trend-bucking resort with an inclusive policy at Lake Placid, New York’s all-suite Whiteface Lodge means guests can take advantage of a wealth of outdoor activities in the Adirondacks for no additional cost. That includes complimentary use of more than 20 non-motorized boats and boards that guests can launch from Lake Placid’s beautiful Paradox Bay: canoes, one- and two-person kayaks, paddle boats, and standup paddle boards. Whether you work your upper body in a kayak or lower body in a paddle boat (which works similar muscles as bicycling), you’ll gain the proven cognitive benefits associated with being near or on the water.

The award-winning boutique resort’s Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga takes participants through a sequence of yoga postures while balanced on a secured, specially designed standup paddle board, developing core strength along with the mind body benefits of traditional yoga.
