We all probably need to get more exercise. Ok, I really need to get more exercise. At home, we can have a fitness routine and even head to the local gym for a workout. When you go camping in the RV, however, staying fit gets a little harder. Or does it?

Stay Active

The most important thing to do is stay active. You’d think this wouldn’t be that difficult, but you really need to have a commitment to keep from lounging around in the RV all day. I know you’re on vacation, but that doesn’t mean you need to vegetate all day.

The easiest thing to do to stay active is to simply walk. Go for a walk around your campground and enjoy being there. It is a great way to get some exercise, as well as meet your neighbors. If you want to get that heart rate up, grab a pair of running shoes and try picking up the pace. If you’re like me, you’ll stick to walking and hiking the area trails. If you see me running, you should run too, because something is chasing me.

Ride a Bike

Another great way to have fun while camping as well saying fit is to ride a bike. Riding a bike is a great low-impact way to work out and enjoy nature. There are bikes available for all sizes of people, budgets and families. There are a lot of different rack options for carrying your bikes on your RV, too.

You may not be able to make it into the gym when you’re camping, and taking a full workout machine with you is probably not a good idea either. You can, however, have a set of dumbbells and do some amount of weight training while in camp. Staying fit doesn’t have to be that hard.

You don’t need much space to do yoga, and yoga mats are quite portable. Get in touch with your inner self and experience yoga in the great outdoors. It’s very peaceful and fun, and a very good workout to boot.

Camping near some water or does your campground have a pool? Swimming is a great way to get some exercise and stretch out sore, stiff joints after a long drive to the campground.

Whatever you do, just stay active. It’s healthier and the longer you stay active and healthy, the longer you can enjoy camping in your RV. That sounds like a good plan to me. What are your tips for staying fit and active when you camp?
