Staying Fit on the Road

Whether you live in a house or apartment and travel periodically, own a recreational vehicle and travel frequently, or live full-time in your RV, one of the things you have to take care of is your health. Without it, you won’t feel like doing much of anything much less traveling the scenic highways of America.

Along with eating healthy foods, a solid exercise regimen is something you’ll want to take along for the ride. It doesn’t have to be time consuming or difficult, just activities to help keep you fit as a fiddle. At Jim’s RV Center, our online accessory store has everything from games for mental health to clocks and journals to track your progress.

Make a checklist for both eating and exercising to help keep you on schedule. Keep it light, simple and fun because, after all, you’re on a travel adventure.

  • Several things to bring along include a jump rope, stretch band and weights. Each takes up little space but pack a huge wallop in the exercise and workout arena. Incorporate each one into a daily routine to stay toned and honed.
  • You’re traveling and stopping at places along the way to camp which probably have ideal locations for exercising. If you’re staying in national parks or resorts with nearby parks or trails, take a hike since walking is an exercise that addresses the entire body.
  • Bring along a bicycle or rent one if you’re in a park. Pedaling gives your leg muscles a solid workout plus you get to enjoy the passing scenery.
  • Place an exercise mat on the floor and do a few floor exercises like stomach crunches. If you have an exercise video, bring it along so you’re not doing your exercises alone. Add variety to your sit-ups and crunches with a few jumping Jacks and windmills.
  • If you’re a Yoga enthusiast, you already know the benefits to the mind and body when doing your routine. For beginners, Yoga is a gentle and relaxing way to start the day inside the RV or outside in the wide open spaces.
  • Be consistent whatever your routine may be.

Give us a call at Jim’s RV and let us get you on the right track to exciting destinations with accessories for your journey to help stay fit.
