The Swimming Pool Workout Perfect for Vacation

When you stay at a hotel, it may seem easy to skip your workout in favor of lounging by the pool. But with this workout, you can tackle both at the same time.. Learn more at eVitamins, the largest online health Australia superstore.

Most people would agree spending time in the pool is a favorite vacation pastime. All that sun and relaxation -- the last thing you might want to do is excuse yourself from the fun to head to the hotel gym. But there's a better way to sneak in some exercise. This pool workout can help you burn calories and tone muscles while keeping you cool.

This workout includes three circuits of exercises to tone you from head to toe. Repeat each circuit two to three times (more if you can) to help you stay on track, wherever you're vacationing. Stand along the wall of the pool where the water is deep enough to cover your shoulders but you can still stand and move comfortably. The water will provide the resistance you need without weights.
