Traveling and Sticking to Your Fitness Routine


by | Dec 6, 2016 | blog

Traveling and sticking to your fitness routine takes extra effort. Believe me, I know.

Just last week, my wife and I traveled to Arizona to visit our son, Arece, his wife, Emily and our two grandkids, Lincoln and Ruby.

While there, we got a chance to watch Arece as he trained for an upcoming marathon in Tempe. I loved seeing him run and, really, that did a lot to motivate me to keep up with my “training” while we were there.

On past vacations, my wife and I often “treated” ourselves when it came to food. We also had a tendency to skip workouts. Knowing that, we paid extra attention to what we were eating on this trip and made a point to be active.

Fortunately, I was able to get in daily workouts during our trip. My sister in-law, Rebecca Lindstrom Anderson, lives at Westminster Village, a retirement community in Scottsdale. The community has a wellness center with several NuStep cross trainers – the same exercise equipment I use at home! It always amazes me that NuStep products are in so many facilities all over this country.

Of course, I’m not going to find a NuStep every time I travel. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t exercise. The important thing is to find other ways to keep moving.

I benefit from using my NuStep in so many ways, but my favorite benefit is having the stamina to do things like travel and see my grandkids. They have so much energy and they are constantly moving. It’s work to keep up with them! But it’s worth it.

I just want to be healthy enough for my family. That’s my biggest motivator and that’s what keeps me NuStepping. It doesn’t get any better then that.

Life is Good.

Stay Healthy My Friends,
