Intelligent travel is a learned skill. Veteran jetsetters collect countless tips and tricks that can help make any trip easier. They know the best times to book flights, how to get the best deals on lodging, and probably even how to hold onto their sanity during an 18-hour flight.
Sure, they could help you travel smarter, but what about traveling healthier? Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is enough of a challenge when you're at home, and when you're on the go, well, we all know how much harder it seems once we step outside of our ordinary environment and lose control over constants like a conveniently located gym or easy access to a grocery store that carries fresh produce.
Staying fit and eating healthy when you're on the go doesn't have to be hard, though. Fitting exercise and a balanced diet into a busy travel itinerary isn't impossible. It just takes some planning ahead and a little bit of dedication.
At least, that's how Arash Shirazi sees it. Shirazi is a frequent flyer and CEO of The Bullitt Agency, an Electronic Dance Music talent agency with headquarters in Washington, D.C., and Barcelona. He takes pride in maintaining his health and fitness despite a busy travel itinerary and a demanding daily schedule in an industry that hardly ever takes a break.
"Fitness is a priority for me," Shirazi says. "I make it a commitment on my calendar."
Whatever the reason for your next trip, instead of throwing all caution to the wind because you've stepped into an unfamiliar atmosphere, you can maintain your fitness and take care of your health using the following five easy tips.
