FITT for Travel – Bon Voyage

The idea to develop a FITT for Travel Program for Jody’s Fitness started to take shape seven years ago when I was invited to go on a vacation that included opportunities for snorkelling, hiking, paddling down a river and climbing up 532 steps to view Machu Picchu.  Most of the people on this trip were older and it became obvious that with a little training, all of the above activities probably would have seen less injury and much less daily discomfort. 

I started listening to my own advice seven weeks ago and developed my own FITT for Travel Program. I’m happy to say it’s been a great success. The goals have been met – I’m feeling stronger and ready to go. 

When I’m traveling, I don’t exercise. All I do is light stretching. Tomorrow is the final workout routine of the program.  It’s time to start making sure I’m well hydrated. Travel day will include a longish relaxing walk and a good amount of time stretching before leaving for the airport. 

I’m off next week and will be back in mid-September. I’ll write a recap post when I’m back. 

Bon Voyage, 

Jody J.
