Five Fitness Essentials To Pack For Vacation


Five Fitness Essentials To Pack For Vacation


One of the most difficult things to do while traveling is to keep up your healthy routines. From eating well to hitting the gym, it can be tough to continue working on your goals away from home. Luckily, with a little planning, you can stay on track and still have just as much fun.


This one sounds so obvious, but it’s important to have on the list. Pack the gear that you love wearing, and you’ll be more likely to actually use it. One of the best ways to maximize your suit case space is to pack clothes that work double-duty. A pair of black leggings and a simple tank can be worn to the gym or while sightseeing. And whatever you do, do not forget your sneakers. Flip flops aren’t as easy to work out in, I promise.


A great water bottle is an essential, eco-friendly way to make sure you down enough H2O. Make sure you choose one that is leak proof and easy to use, like this highly rated bottle from Klean Kanteen. You can toss it in your bag without making a huge mess, and it will keep your drink cold all day. If you need more motivation to drink up, add fruit slices or single-serve flavorings each time you fill it up.


Just like at home, having healthy snacks on-hand is critical. If you are able to reach for a delicious, protein-packed snack before your hunger gets out of control, you’re less likely to cave and eat the first thing you come across while out and about. The Bumble Bee Ready to Eat Snack Kits are exactly the type of item you should toss in your bag before heading out for the day if you don’t want to end up blowing your souvenir budget on questionable street hot dogs. Throw these handy snack tuna pouches in your bag when you need a quick energy boost on an adventure.


If you won’t have access to a gym or a safe running route while on vacation, your best bet is to pack a few basic pieces of gym equipment. Resistance bands, yoga mats, speed ropes, and suspension training kits are all lightweight and small enough to fit into almost any bag. Pro tip: set your gear out where you will see it each morning and try to squeeze in a few moves before you start your day.


Nothing can ruin a trip faster than bad sunburns or bug bites. If you’ll be working out outdoors, make sure you apply sunblock and repellent as necessary. This is especially important if you’re somewhere tropical. Those mosquitos and harsh rays are no joke this time of year.

Wherever you’re headed this summer, packing smartly will allow you to stay active while still having a ball.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x
Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
