Vacation Workout


Vacation Workout

bee-active-vacation-workoutWhen it comes to working out on vacation, I fall somewhere in the middle of “I have to do this” and “I want to do this”. I never make working out an actual priority, yet I know I’ll feel better if I squeeze one in. We recently headed to the beach for a few days, and I chose to run one of the mornings. I had an inkling that it would be my only workout of the trip, so I chose to make it a little more difficult than my typical beach miles. I combined sprints with bodyweight moves for a super sweaty and super satisfying workout.

This is a great vacation-friendly workout because it just involves moving (walking, jogging, or running all count) paired with a few body weight moves. As far as a quarter-mile is concerned, I just eyeballed it! For a description of each move, see below.

Lunges: Stand up straight with your shoulders back. Step forward with one leg, lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Your front knee should be directly above your foot and your back knee shouldn’t touch the ground. Keep the weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. One lunge per side equals one rep.

Push Ups: Get into full plank position, which your body forming a straight line from head to toe. Lower your chest to the ground. Lift yourself back up into the starting position.

Squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart with your knees over your toes. Keeping your spine straight and abs tight begin bending at the knees. Squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground (or lower) and then drive through your heels to stand back up.

What about you? Are you a “vacation should be vacation” person, or do you try to fit a workout in if you can?

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
