How To Maintain Your Healthy Habits While You’re On Vacation

How To Maintain Your Healthy Habits While You’re On Vacation

Breaking the humdrum of the everyday and enjoying new experiences make vacations worthwhile. But, returning home with a sense of regret after losing sight of your healthy habits can be an unwelcome side-effect. Don’t lose track of your health and wellness goals while you’re out of town. Plan your itinerary around routines that complement your healthy habits while you’re away from home. You’ll not only feel your best on your vacation, but you may find that you’ve reinvigorated your habits when you return home. From maintaining your daily exercise routine to making smart meal choices, Omni offers easy ways to stay healthy without sacrificing your luxurious vacation experience.

Keep Up Your Daily Healthy Habits

Try A Ride On A Peloton

A healthy vacation starts with maintaining your daily exercise routine. Omni Hotels have state-of-the-art fitness facilities to help you continue your favorite workouts. Many hotels offer Peloton bikes so you can make your regular class. Or, take advantage of access to the bikes to start a free trial. Plus, at Omni Viking Lakes Hotel in Minnesota, you can even add a Peloton bike to your reservation to use in the comfort and safety of your own room.

Dive-In To A Swim

For a fast and fun way to burn calories, take a dip in one of our impressive lineup of swimming pools. Whether you’re swimming laps or splashing around with the family, you won’t even realize how much exercise you’re getting.

Explore The Area

If you’re staying in a new destination, take time to explore the city while getting in your steps with a city walking tour. Consider taking a walk around town to burn off the extra calories from a delicious breakfast or dinner. At Omni Las Colinas Hotel, you’ll feel miles away from the busy Metroplex walking around Lake Carolyn and the Mandalay canals. Or if the weather is warm, try stand-up paddleboarding.

Stay Active With Resort Activities

Resort activities at Omni provide more great ways to get moving, burn calories and build muscle.

Snow Skiing

It’s not every day that you can work out through snow-covered mountains. But, when you stay at Omni Mount Washington Resort, you can meet your fitness goals with a day on the slopes. Skiing, specifically cross-country skiing, burns more calories than nearly any other form of exercise. At the end of the day, treat yourself and your tired muscles with a soothing massage at The Spa.

Premier Fitness Camp

For an all-inclusive wellness getaway, check out Premier Fitness Camp, a fitness experience hosted at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. The camp provides intense daily workouts, nutritional classes and wellness treatments to help attendees create and keep their healthy habits. At the end of the day, you’ll make the most of your vacation while enjoying luxurious amenities and achieving your long-term fitness goals.

Bike Rentals

The whole family can boost their heart rates on an invigorating bike ride. The extremely bike-friendly destination, Hilton Head Island, features over 60 miles of trails to explore. Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort provides bike rentals, including children’s bikes and attachments. Furthermore, beach paths made from packed sand allow visitors to ride along the pristine Atlantic coastline for views you probably won’t find in your neighborhood.

Nature Hiking

Many Omni destinations are ideally located for hiking. A stimulating hike can take you to some awe-inspiring spots. For example, The Omni Homestead Resort offers a 3.5-mile walking tour led by a local naturalist, Brian LaFountain, along an Allegheny Mountain gorge trail. The intermediate hike passes twelve waterfalls that produce negative ions. The benefits of these negative ions, including increased levels of serotonin, are explained in the resort’s podcast, “The Healing Nature of Nature”.

Make Smart Choices at Mealtime

A luxurious getaway wouldn’t be complete without partaking in the local cuisine. Unfortunately, indulgent meals often contradict the healthy habits we practice at home. However, you’ll find that Omni’s restaurants offer healthy menu items created with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Robert Nyerick, Executive Chef at Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort, recommends the popular citrus grilled summer salad served at bluEmber that’s full of immunity-boosting vitamins and zinc. This satisfying salad, comprised of kale and spinach tossed with fruits and vegetables, is accompanied by your choice of citrus-marinated shrimp or salmon. Furthermore, choose to pair your meal with a low-calorie cocktail or mocktail constructed by your friendly bartender.

Reduce Your Stress

Don’t just stop at staying active and eating right. Nearly every Omni hotel or resort offers premier spa services ideal for jump starting your healthy habits while traveling. In the midst of so much activity and fun, a little self-care will add to your overall well-being. Besides, it’s not every day you have a little extra time and access to a variety of body and facial treatments.

The Spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn

The subterranean spa at The Omni Grove Park Inn is one of the most notable spas in the Omni portfolio. It is adorned with twenty water features surrounded by cavernous rock walls. Plus, the spa’s innovative use of lights, sounds and scents provides the ideal atmosphere to release stress. The expansive spa menu includes tailored massages with enhancements along with facial and body treatments. It’s recommended to book your spa treatment or day pass up to 30 days in advance to enjoy the 43,000 square foot oasis.

Mokara Spa Massages

With over ten Mokara Spas conveniently located across the country, go ahead and book a treatment during your stay. From hydrating facials to specialty massages, you may find solace in R&R treatments you didn’t know you needed. Omni Interlocken Hotel’s deep tissue sports massage is a go-to for athletes and local adventurers looking to melt away tension. The treatment not only works deep within the muscles and joints, but also incorporates stretching. Many hotels, like Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, offer upgrades like hot stones or a cupping treatment used to stimulate circulation and enhance your massage.

Premium Spa Treatments at Omni Resorts


The positive effects of baths, a centuries-old tradition, are countless, and Omni resorts offer several healing bath experiences. The Bedford Bath Ritual at Omni Bedford Springs Resort incudes a series of exfoliating, mineral pool soaks and hydrating mists. During your visit to Joya Spa in Scottsdale, you can try the one-of-a-kind Hammam Ritual, a Moroccan-inspired cleanse which includes a specifically blended scrub designed to detoxify and renew the body and spirit.

Quartz Sand Table Massage

Discover the ancient art of heated sand with the Quartz Sand Table Massage at Omni Amelia Island Resort. The Bavarian quartz and Persian salt provides physical and mental relaxation while stimulating metabolism.

Joya Signature Body Polish 

Ocean Tides Spa at Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort offers an exfoliating body treatment that leaves skin clean, radiant and hydrated. Start with the Ginger Herbal Detox Wrap and create the ultimate healthy glow. This treatment gently rids the body of dead skin, revealing new, healthier skin as well as replenishing moisture loss.

Don’t sacrifice your luxurious vacation this year for fear of losing sight of your wellness goals. You can do both! Take advantage of fitness centers, resort activities, dining and relaxing spa treatments. With so many unique opportunities to maintain your healthy habits while you’re on vacation, it’s easy to stick to your goals.
