LONDON, June 8, 2010 – Improving your fitness during a holiday may seem quite the opposite of a relaxing break, but getting away from the daily grind and doing some energetic and revitalizing exercise can be the perfect re-charge. It’s all about using your free time away to allow you to indulge in the things you can’t always fit into your normal routine. So, have a look at realbuzz.com’s 10 ideas for the perfect active holiday, each one guaranteed to give you your fitness fill!

1. Windsurfing & Sailing: Windsurfing is usually the more challenging of the two because you are always standing up and heaving on the rig; coordination and strength are the primary benefits – the more wind the better. Combining with the beach aspect of a holiday means you can’t lose!

2. Skiing & Snowboarding: As well as being great fun, a holiday on the piste can be tailored to a wide range of fitness levels and brings CV, strength and coordination benefits. A week on the slopes will really tone the legs and bum.

3. Walking & Trekking: You can head to some of the most beautiful places in the world and combine a sightseeing holiday with a great CV strength and full-body workout by walking or trekking seriously. Include a fully loaded backpack and you are going to be doing a serious daily workout!

4. Cycling: Like walking, cycling can take you to some amazing places. It’s a great fun holiday and good for the whole family. Perfect to boost your CV fitness and build leg strength of course.

5. Relaxing at the beach: Yes – believe it or not, if you are a regular fitness fanatic then a week relaxing allows your body to recover from the cumulative effect of exercise. A week on the beach will allow you to bounce back to it when you head home!

6. Surfing & Body-boarding: A fantastic way to keep fit whilst being in the sea and the sun. Both these sports need a good all-round level of fitness and help with CV fitness, strength and coordination.

7. Golfing: A very popular holiday activity and ensuring that you are doing the full 18 holes will maximize the impact a round can have on your fitness levels. Some courses are more demanding than others, but a good golfing break is guaranteed to maximize your CV fitness.

8. Scuba Diving: A diving holiday is a fantastic way to explore a generally unseen underwater world and is an activity which requires a useful blend of CV fitness, strength, coordination and flexibility.

9. Horse Riding: Equestrian sports like horse riding don’t necessarily seem like they are good for fitness, but after a week’s horse riding there will be muscles aching that you never thought existed.

10. Sport Specific – Nowadays you can choose running camps, triathlon camps and many other sporting disciplines. All are tailor-made to be a specialized holiday, focused on improving your ability in chosen sports – the perfect way to complement your lifestyle.

By going on a holiday and enjoying one of these activities you can guarantee you’ll come back refreshed, with more energy and improved health and fitness levels.
