How to Balance Summer Fun with Your Physical Well-being
With all the fun that comes with summertime, it’s easy to push exercising to the end of your to-do list. Between the BBQs and days at the beach, summer schedules can fill up fast. That’s why it’s important to prioritize your health with handy fitness tips to keep you on track.
Whether you like working out with friends, being active with your family, or exercising on your own, being on vacation doesn’t have to limit you. Many vacation spots, like Sherkston Shores Beach Resort & Campground, offer activities and facilities for guests to enjoy.
Check out these five fitness tips that will keep you healthy while on vacation. Get ready for a great summer body!
1. Group Exercise
When you work out on your own, it can be hard to motivate yourself to your full potential. Group classes allow you to feed off the energy of those around you. Plus, they provide a social experience, offering a chance to make friends and learn new fitness tips!
Group classes provide accountability, motivation, and support so you can make the most of your workout. At Sherkston Shores, there’s no shortage of group activities. Water lovers can try Aqua Fit and Aqua Zumba, and those who prefer land activities can enjoy Beach Yoga, Tai Chi, and more.
2. Prepare Meals
Being on vacation with a family can be very busy and it may seem like there isn’t enough time to make dinner. To conserve time and avoid eating out, try meal prepping. Preparing batches once or twice a week gives you more family time on weeknights. It also allows everyone to eat healthier because you’re not whipping something up in a rush.
Campers at Sherkston Shores will find it easy to meal prep with an on-site grocery store. Sherkston Supermart has everything you need to create healthy meals while enjoying your summer vacation.
3. Outdoor Fitness
Taking your workouts into the great outdoors is becoming increasingly popular. Outdoor gyms are popping up across the U.S. and Canada, encouraging people to enjoy active lifestyles. Plus, working out in nature has mental health and wellbeing benefits.

4. Activity Trackers
Fitness gadgets, like an Apple Watch or Fitbit, allow you to work smarter instead of harder. These handy little tools track things like your heart rate, steps, calories burned, and sleep cycles. You can easily set targets to meet your fitness goals.
Be sure to have your tracker on hand during your walk or when visiting the fitness center.
5. Family Activities
It can be difficult to find an activity that the whole family can take part in. But there are many options even while vacationing. Axe throwing, rock climbing, and bubble soccer are just a few alternative activities to get in shape. Sherkston Shores has a wide array of fun ways to stay fit, so be sure to stay up to date on the events calendar.
We hope these fitness tips have sparked some ideas for staying in shape this summer. Remember that at Sherkston Shores, you’ll find basketball, tennis courts, exercise classes, rock-climbing, and so much more.
