Ok, so you have booked your cruise. You are dreaming of a week of wild nights of partying, socializing, meeting new & old friends, and (hopefully) having some awesome sex in the best playrooms at sea! As you dream, you realize that date will be here before you know it. Time to get fit before you Fu@%!
How can you ensure you hit the ground (or water) running when you embark on the Best F*cking Vacation?
Well here are 5 super tips to get you in great shape physically. After all, we want you to have an amazing experience. Having a body that is well prepared will definitely help.
1) Do some regular cardio based exercise starting now!
It can be as simple as going for a 20-30 minute walk every morning before breakfast. Wake up, drink 2 glasses of water then get outside. Walking can help to clear your mind and get your thoughts ready for the day ahead. Plus you will burn some extra fat calories if you walk before breakfast. Regular exercise can help you get the fat off and keep the weight down so you will have more energy. More energy equals less fatigue. Less fatigue means you are more likely to last longer into the night – whatever you may be doing.
Don’t have time? Incidental exercise is your friend.
You’ll be surprised how those extra little bits throughout the day will add up. Take the stairs wherever you go, even when you get on the cruise. The only time you are not allowed is when the 6-inch platform stripper heels are on, taking the lift is then recommended. It’s the cardio that will hold you in good stead for all the dancing, vertically AND horizontally!
2) Do some resistance training.
I don’t mean resistance as in “I don’t want to exercise”, but as in lifting weights, doing some bodyweight training such as squats, rows, push ups etc. This will help to maintain or gain muscle as you are stripping fat off your body. More muscle definition means you look much better, much healthier, and therefore more appealing to the opposite sex (or the same sex – whatever floats your boat right?). Plan for strength based resistance training 2-3 times per week to keep yourself looking great!
3) Do a nutritional cleanse, detox or nutritionally supported intermittent fast.
At times our body can get so loaded up with toxins, impurities & junk which can adversely affect our digestion, and we may end up feeling sluggish. Especially pertinent if you had a Summer long session of drinking. At some point, it is extremely beneficial to do a nutritional cleanse. This involves giving your digestive system a short-term break to improve blood circulation, rest your organs through fasting and refueling the body with healthy nutrients.
If you’re time poor, hate the gym, not keen on points 1 and 2 above and need an overhaul, we can certainly fix you up with the program recommended by us Aussies and Miss Lynn!
4) Ditch the shit!
Yes, I’m talking to you soda, booze, coffee and take out! Do you know how many calories are actually in that Venti salted caramel with whip from Starbucks? 610 if you really want to know. Pretty much a third of your daily calories. Rid the house of junk food so you won’t be tempted. Get rid of the empty calories and flood your body with optimum nutrition, as I said in point 3.
5) Whether you play separately or together, to get ready for the cruise, we want you to do accountability together.
Whatever your choice is from the 4 listed above, holding each other accountable and working as a team is more likely to lead to long term habits. It’s a great way to conquer the world together, ensuring exercise and nutrition plans are followed. If your significant other is not on board with your goals, enlist the help of a friend. You’re less likely to flake on the 6 am class if you know you have someone waiting there for you.
So there are some simple ways you can prepare yourself for the Best F*cking Vacation!
