Are you still keeping your New Year resolutions? Statistics say that only 1 in 3 people will keep them within the first month, but we’ve got a few tips for staying on track whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure while visiting a city like Las Vegas. If you’re like many, ‘spend less, save more’, ‘get healthy’, ‘eat better’, ‘work out more’ are among the resolutions on your list this year. Here are a few healthy ideas to keep those goals in check:
How to Save Money
If spending less and saving more is a resolution on your list this year, then you’ll want to choose off-peak times to visit Las Vegas and check out hotel websites for specials and packages. While Vegas is a great place to visit any time of the year, the most affordable time to fly is typically August and October. Want to know how to save even more money? Be ready to travel during the week, when rates are sure to be the lowest.
Many hotels offer special deals and packages on their website. In some cases if you book direct with the resort you’ll also save. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is currently offering its New Year’s Resolution Package with up to 40 percent off room rates if you book in January, but you can travel all the way through June.
If you’re staying at a major hotel in Las Vegas, you’ll want to join their membership program to get access to exclusive promotions and offers which will also save you money. Rewards clubs like Backstage Pass at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino offer discounts on dining, rooms and spa in addition to other benefits.
The indulgent atmosphere of Las Vegas can quickly take a toll on your body if you’re not careful so doing a little research ahead of time can help you stay on track with your health and fitness goals. There are many restaurants on and off the Las Vegas Strip that offer healthy alternatives. Many of the hotels in Vegas have quick-serve options at the resort like Juice Bar at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Located on the second level of the HRH Tower near the Kelly Cardenas Salon, Juice Bar offers healthy smoothies with protein and vitamin boosts that can be added to any beverage in addition to coffee and espresso. You can also keep your resolutions to look and feel your best by making regular appointments at the spa and with your hair stylist. Reliquary Spa offers a variety of massage therapies like the Rock Star Swedish massage and the Drum Sticks massage. The Kelly Cardenas Salon at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino offers a luxury experience with the hottest hair techs around.
Visit the Gym
While the bright lights of Vegas are tempting, keep your body looking and feeling good while you’re away from home. Check out the amenities offered on-site at your hotel. Many Las Vegas resorts offer access to their fitness facilities, which are truly state-of-the-art and worth a visit. Some resorts even offer personal trainers and group fitness. Even if you don’t stay at one of the hotels or resorts, you can usually access their fitness centers with a day pass. And, let’s face it, if you’re going to work up a sweat, it’s nice to do it on top-notch equipment in a great atmosphere.
Whether you’re traveling to Vegas for business or pleasure keeping your New Year’s resolutions can be done, you just have to know how to do it and commit to it.
