- I need a mind/body break. I workout 6 days a week and at some point I just need to let it go to appreciate it mentally and physically.
- The gym and exercise is my job. It's a great job, but it is my job. A real vacation is a break allowing me to come back to my clients refreshed.
If you were my client about to take a summer vacation and asked for a prescription for exercise for your trip, I would tell you to be active, go for a walk; daily if possible. If you really want to do more, look to body weight exercises for variety. Don't pick up a weight or look for a fitness ball. By definition," a vacation is an Enjoy your vacation spending your time with the people you love doing what you love. If you need someone to tell you that it's OK to take a break from exercise, this is it!
