Do you love the idea of a fit body but are unable to keep up with your workout regime while travelling? What if you could workout AND have a vacation at the same time? Better yet, a beach vacation! These fitness events at different places have something in common: amazing ocean views! Nothing’s better than working out and clicking Insta worthy pictures at the same time. So here you go:
For all you marathon lovers, Huntington Beach’s Surf City Marathon should be on your bucket list. The california classic is fast and one of the most scenic routes to run. Imagine travelling along the Pacific coastal highway with the ocean by your side and a cool breeze against your face!
Instead of driving California’s historic 17-Mile Drive, bike it! Just like the road, the bike lanes are oceanside, have incredible views and pass iconic landmarks such as Lover’s Point, Asilomar Beach and Point Pinos Lighthouse. If 17 miles sounds far, you can rent an electric or pedal-assist bike from Big Sur Adventures. These e-bikes make hills a breeze.
LA’s oceanfront resort Terranea has an incredible outdoor yoga program with summer events like Full Moon Yoga in August and the resort’s annual Seaside Yoga Gathering for National Yoga Awareness Month. Classes are held outside on the lawn overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Palos Verdes peninsula. The view at sunset is something you’ll never forget.
Tighten your core and experience Hawaiian culture at Hilton Waikoloa Village. The resort’s resident kumu hula, or instructor of hula, teaches the basics against the island’s jaw-dropping volcanic coastline. Hula is beautiful but it’s also a great low-impact cardio workout that strengthens back muscles and improves posture.
Perfect your serve or your 3-point while taking in the South Beach horizon. Miami’s W South Beach has a rooftop gym with tennis and basketball courts perfect for private lessons or group games. The courts also offer rooftop bootcamps with the hotel’s trainers.
