It’s easy to get “vacation fat.” You forego your regular fitness routines, say yes to all the food trips, and stress-eat after hours of commuting and adventure. Next thing you know, you’ve hit the buffet for the nth time in a week and your cheeks are looking chubbier in those #wanderlust selfies. Instead of blaming the laundry dryer for your seemingly shrinking clothes, incorporate these workout cheats while traveling.

Walk.
Instead of commuting or riding a car to a nearby destination, why don’t you walk and enjoy the scenic route? As long as the neighborhood is safe, walking around gives you a chance to interact with the locals and immerse in the culture of the place. Also, book walking tours—many cities in Europe and Asia offer them for free.

Bike.
See if the city you’re visiting is bike-friendly. Look around for bike or scooter rental shops. Also try Spinlister, the Airbnb of bikes, surfboards, and snowboards. Leisurely biking burns 243 calories an hour [source: My Fitness Pal] as opposed to just sitting in a bus or car.

Organize outdoor adventures.
Traveling is the perfect opportunity to try something new, so fill your itinerary with a new sport, hiking trip, and other outdoor adventures. See what sports and activities the locals are into.
