Hotel in Regina: 4 Tips on How to Keep Fit While Travelling
After a long day of travel, or sitting in a business meeting all day, it’s important to stop and stretch while finding ways to get your heart pumping. Exercise is not only good for our health and productivity, it also keeps our mental stresses at bay.
Whether you are on a business or leisure trip in Saskatchewan, seek out the Comfort Suites’ hotel in Regina, which offers a fitness centre, swimming pool, and hot tub and is close to outdoor amenities, and try some of these tips to keep fit while travelling:
1. Get Your Heart Pumping
Not only is exercise good for burning off what we call car calories, namely the convenient junk foods we tend to eat while travelling, it is important for our cardiovascular health in preventing heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
When we exercise, our blood circulates, carrying oxygen and nutrients to our vital organs and other parts of our body.
When travelling, look for Regina hotels with a fitness centre and try some of these heart-pumping exercises, and don’t forget to stretch afterwards:
- Rapidly walk or run on the treadmill for 20 minutes, with a five-minute warm up and cool down.
- Do interval training every 5 minutes by bumping up the resistance on an elliptical machine. Do this for 20 minutes.
- Ride on a stationary bike for 30 minutes at a medium intensity.
2. Swim Like a Fish
After a long drive, there’s no better way to refresh yourself while getting some much exercise than seeking out Regina hotels with a swimming pool. Swimming laps is a great way to build endurance, muscle and cardio, and is also easier on your body as it is a low-impact activity.
While in the pool, why not try some resistance exercises such as aqua running, jumping jacks, and using a board or pool noodle to push and pull the water with your arms.
3. Take a Path to Wellness
Take in some sights and get some exercise while staying at Regina, SK hotels.
Close to Louis Riel Trail and Regina highway hotels are some of the city’s multi-use pathways, which are open to runners, walkers and cyclists, roller bladers, and even cross-country skiers. Regina is also home to a number of parks where you can hike, bike, run and walk. Some parks even offer outdoor callisthenics equipment.
4. Soak and Stretch at Hotels in Regina with a Hot Tub
After all that sitting, or exercise, you’ll want to relax by melting away tension and improving your circulation. One of the best ways to do this is by looking for hotels in Regina with Jacuzzi tubs. The hot water and jets in a hot tub or Jacuzzi help raise your body temperature, which in turn dilates the blood vessels. This improves circulation to your extremities and joints, and helps loosen tightened muscles.
