Finding Time for Fitness While Traveling

The spring and summer months are a great time for traveling, but they are also a great time to focus on reaching your health and fitness goals. Balancing the two can be difficult, especially if you are just starting out. The good news is that you can definitely enjoy your vacations while continuing on your fitness journey. All travel fitness takes is a little motivation and a solid game plan.

Travel Fitness Tips

Focus on Fresh Foods
Eating healthy meals doesn’t have to be boring. The key is to eat fresh, whole foods prepared in fun and unique ways. Local spices and flavors will take your meals to another level, and I promise you won’t miss all of the processed foods. You should also keep a few pre-packaged options handy for when your choices are limited. Ready-to-Eat Kits with crackers are a perfect solution because they are delicious, better-for-you, and incredibly convenient.

Limit Liquid Calories
When it comes to your calorie intake on vacation, liquids can be hard to monitor. It’s hard to pass up a good drink! One way to combat this is to play favorites. If you know you’ll have wine with dinner, skip that afternoon latte. You don’t have to cut liquid calories out completely, but you should only be drinking the ones you know you’ll really enjoy.

Take in the Sights
The best way to get active on vacation is to get up and explore. It doesn’t matter if you walk, jog, run, or hike. Just lace up your tennis shoes and head out on foot. Whether you join a tour or go at it solo, you’ll be able to see and explore things that you may not have noticed otherwise. You’ll never know what’s out there until you start looking around! 

Research the Workout Scene
Another fun way to break a sweat on vacation is to workout like the locals. Is there a yoga studio down the block, or does it seem like everyone is heading to spin class? If you’re near the water, try paddle boarding or surfing. If you’re further inland, head out for a hike or hit the slopes. Go ahead and try something new. You’ll certainly be glad you did.

Have a Back Pocket Workout
When all else fails, keep a great bodyweight workout in your back pocket. A quick Google search will yield hundreds of options, but you can also create your own. Any combination of moves will work as long as you’re up and moving. Some examples include squat jumps, push-ups, and planks. All of these can be done anywhere at any time.

With a little planning, and these travel fitness tips, you’ll be able to feel and look your best no matter where your adventures take you.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

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,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
