Getting ready for your upcoming trip to Australia? In between the plane tickets, hotel reservations, trip itinerary, gear acquisitions and organization, as well as farewell visits to friends and family, you’ll need to make sure you are ready for your trip physically as well. A trip to Australia is exciting, not just for the trips to the Sydney Opera House or to the capital in Canberra, but also for the chance to experience the Outback, scuba diving and snorkeling, and other great adventure tourism opportunities.
But it’s hard to enjoy all that Australia has to offer if you aren’t in decent shape. Noone is saying you won’t enjoy your trip if you aren’t in decent shape, but you should at least get your body into the best shape you reasonably can while you prepare for your trip. You don’t need to become a world champion lifter, just take some time to increase your overall fitness.
While you don’t need to worry about hiking all over Australia, thanks to a very modern network of roads and airports, you should be prepared to make the most of your trip by taking some long days and trips. By doing some great aerobic activities like Zumba in Chicago, you’ll get your body into great travel form. It’s important to take advantage of the opportunities you have to get in shape now, before you’re on your trip.
Once you’re in Australia, you will want to see as much as you possibly can. You’ll want to spend time visiting wineries, swimming in the coral reefs, and walking the beaches. Get yourself into travel-ready shape with a few classes each month. A group class will help you stay motivated as you’ll see the same group of people. This way somebody will know if you fail to show and hold you accountable. Week by week, you’ll gradually see your improvement.
Many people are daunted by the thought of joining a fitness class, but Zumba keeps it fun and light-hearted. What starts out as a way to get into shape for your Australia trip may turn out to be a lot longer-lasting, and greater impact experience than the trip itself.
