Backpacking for Fitness -- or Fatpacking

Try a Retreat One of the easiest ways to book a fit trip is to choose a retreat in an area you would like to see. Some of these retreats have programs specifically geared to weight loss, while others provide specific training programs for different fitness levels. In addition to the daily workouts, retreats might include personal enrichment classes and entertainment offerings. Beach Bums If the beach is your idea of a vacation, look for seaside resorts that provide a plethora of fitness classes to fit the bill. You can find Bikini Boot Camp in Mexico or a simple yoga class on the white sand through resorts around the world. Say Spaaah Spas are usually considered havens of extreme pampering, but many cater to the fitness minded as well. You can enjoy a variety of fitness activities, from exercise classes in the great outdoors to hiking and biking excursions. At the same time, you can enjoy the luxurious treatments that have made spas famous, along with gourmet cuisine so tasty you won't know it's good for you too. Go Fatpacking Fatpacking is backpacking designed for serious weight loss. This group has options in treks across the country, from the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire to Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington. This is a great way to drop the pounds while enjoying the beautiful wilderness and breathtaking views. It is recommended that only people of moderate fitness levels sign up for these activities, as the trips are fairly rigorous. In some cases, you may need a fitness training course prior to your trip to get ready for the activity ahead.  Take a look at fun classes offered at your local YMCA or gym to get your family revved up for a fun, fitness-filled vacation. For a getaway guaranteed to whip your body into shape, try out one of these fit trips for your next vacation. You'll have so much fun that you'll forget you are getting buff and shedding excess pounds!
