    If you think about it, The Twelve Days of Christmas actually features very active gifts, like maids-a-milking, ladies dancing, lords-a-leaping, pipers piping, and to set the pace, the drummers drumming. But to a traveler, these gifts aren’t the most practical presents. So with the holidays in full swing, as an alternative we introduce "The Twelve Days of Travel," a list of fun ways to incorporate daily workouts into your next travel itinerary—whether it involves a true love or not.

    Lounge and Lunge at the Beach

    Fitness retreats are all the rage these days and are perfect for those of us who need an escape but don’t have the time or resources to create the itinerary. Since these retreats can be pricey, it’s best to go with operators that partner up like Paddle Diva and Kama Deva Yoga. Paddle Diva and Kama Deva offer more bang for your buck with their popular Yoga, Surf, and SUP retreats where you have access to all three activities (plus a little TRX in some cases) for a great price.

    Make Your Layover a “Play-over”Disclaimer: this only applies to Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee, but it’s still an awesome idea. On your next layover at MKE, check out their ping-pong table near the entrance to Concourse C and play some table tennis while waiting for your flight. It’s a lot more fun than sitting at the gate or fighting the temptation of the food court.

    Check In, Then Check It out

    After a long day of traveling, most of us like to check-in and immediately hit the sack. Instead, take five minutes to check out the hotel’s amenities. Even if you don’t plan on working out, at least scope out your options because more often than not seeing other guests swimming laps or lifting weights will inspire you to do the same.
