Nobody likes to exercise while on vacation. My wife and I with our 2 kids spend a lot of weekends during the summer relaxing at the campground. We both work hard all week and it’s nice to have the weekends to relax and do enjoyable things. Our friends camp in the spot next to us so there is always something to do or somewhere to go. Exercise is the last thing on our minds.??
The best way I have found to get exercise is not to think of it as ‘exercise’. It’s more fun to take a walk to look at the scenery or take the bikes to the trail down the road for a ride. This is fun stuff, not exercise. The RV lifestyle begs for folks to enjoy the outdoors. Get out and enjoy it! Any activity is really exercise in disguise.
Most RVs today have all the comforts of home: microwaves, stereos, and TVs. Ours even has 3 TVs! However, something about RVing makes us want to be outside and be more active. Our daughters are just like any other kids. All it seems they want to do while at home is sit and watch TV, play video games, or talk on the phone. When we’re in the camper, their favorite activities change. They are not satisfied unless we are outside playing a game or sitting around the campfire after dark. This makes it easy to get them active and keep them healthy.
There is any number of things to do to keep active. If nothing else, get out and walk around the campground. RVers are some of the friendliest people we have ever met. I don’t think there is ever a stranger in the campground at which we stay. Even the owners can usually be found sitting around a campfire visiting on most nights.
Exercise does not have to be done just to be doing it. That is a good way to burn yourself out. Just do what you enjoy outside. It’s easy with the RV lifestyle, so get out there!Research Campgrounds, Plan RV Safe Routes & Turn your phone into an RV GPS.
