Fitness and health has far surpassed the notion that we only eat well and exercise some of the time, and now people are embracing their healthy lifestyles and applying them to their holidays and travel plans.
A survey by Travelex found one in the three people want to ‘tone up’ on holiday while nearly one quarter said they would like to lose weight. A further 17 per cent of people admitted to booking a fitness holiday to concentrate purely on their wellbeing. Separate research by travel company Health and Fitness Travel found that staying active while on vacation is now important for 82 per cent of people.
However how does one truly travel, from place to place, while easily keeping up the routines and foundations of a healthy lifestyle, without locking themselves away at a retreat? Now travellers all over the world can stay fit and healthy while travelling with the launch of Wellbeing Worldwide, a user generated/expert mediated platform dedicated to creating the ultimate guide to taking your health and fitness wherever you go.
