Here is a couple of quick tips for fitness and losing weight onboard your cruise.
Exercise for at least 30 minutes every day – If you are new to exercise and feel inspired by your cruise to give it a try, you are already half way there. If you do not know how to put together an effective weight loss program on your own, or if you are a looking for a quality diet and exercise program you can follow, nearly all ships have fitness instructors to help you. Most ships have fully equipped gymnasiums with weights, cardio machines and a host of exercise classes like Aerobics, Pilates, Yoga etc.
If you want a shortcut to burning fat fast, train in the morning before breakfast. If you train when you first wake up, your body starts burning fat faster than it would after you eat. The reason being is, your body has been fasting all night; hence it has less energy to use before it starts burning fat. So if it normally takes your body 20 minutes of exercise before it starts burning fat, it may only take 10 minutes in the morning. Therefore, a 30 minute workout becomes a lot more beneficial for burning fat in the morning than the afternoon or evening. And considering your days will be filled with sightseeing, and your nights with eating, drinking and entertaining, the morning is also the most convenient time to train.
Keep busy – On cruises nowadays, there is always something to do onboard, so it should not be too hard to keep yourself occupied. This will keep you from getting bored and take your attention away from eating. Depending on your ship, there could be fitness classes, dancing, rock climbing, ice skating, surfing, golf and miniature golf, inline skating, basketball, volleyball tournaments, dodge ball tournaments, and soccer just to name a few. The ships daily planner will outline different fitness activities and wellness seminars you can do. Take advantage of these to learn more about staying healthy. This will not only keep you motivated but give you valuable education to serve you long after your cruise. Want more cruise ship tips for staying healthy onboard.
