How To Stay Fit As You Travel

For some people, travelling is already their way to get some exercise, but this is not the case for those who regularly work up a sweat. The idea of constantly sitting down, eating various delicious dishes, and the barrels of alcohol consumed when travelling is enough to give hardcore fitness junkies cold sweat. So along with thinking about how you are going to book your travel to Bulgaria and get a discount, you might also want to look into how you can stay fit as you travel!

Fortunately for you, this is not as difficult as a lot of people seem to think. For starters, if you are already used to working out, you will likely already be doing things that keep your body fit, anyway. All we have to do now is just to push it a bit further so you get the best results.

Simple Exercises

There are a lot of things that you can do during your travels that can help keep you fit. One of them is to simply do some small exercises such as lifting your legs with your toes while sitting down. This has been used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts to prevent their bodies from getting rusty while riding any form of transportation. If you manage to find the best place to stay that allows for extra space to breathe, you could even do some simple bodyweight exercises such as pushups or sit-ups.

Break it Apart

You could also try breaking your fitness regime to small, manageable sessions. Five to ten-minute intervals should suffice, broken up all through the day. While it’s not exactly ideal, it should still provide a good compromise and keeps you in a routine.


It’s always fun to explore a new city on foot and this is a great form of exercise too! You can walk around the capital city, Sofia, for hours, there are so many things to see. You can even join the daily Free Sofia Walking Tour. And, if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can join the Sofia Green Tour and go on some incredible hikes in the mountain. This will keep you fit for sure!

So, now you have a few tips up your sleeve, you can enjoy as much Bulgarian food and wine as you please, without feeling any guilt!
