Travelers often find themselves in a wellness dilemma: How do you maintain your regular fitness regimen while on the road, working off-hours in an unfamiliar environment? This is especially true when you’re traveling to Las Vegas. But fear not, Las Vegas has an abundance of state-of-the-art hotel gyms and healthy restaurants to help you stay in shape while enjoying business travel or a leisurely Vegas vacation. Not to mention, you can find plenty of hiking trails if you venture just a few minutes off-the-strip to Red Rock Canyon or Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
While the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is known as Las Vegas’ off-Strip playground – mixing rock n’ roll with sophistication – it also has all the right amenities to help you stay fit and well-rested while traveling. When it comes to staying in shape on the road, here are four ways you can make health a priority at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
Stay Fit Tip #1: Start with a Healthy Breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day. A healthy breakfast is important when trying to stay in shape, manage your weight, and keep your energy levels up. It kick starts your metabolism and improves your concentration and productivity. Check out Lucky’s 24/7 diner and opt for a healthy start to your day with avocado toast or a seasonal fruit plate, in an effort to stay fit while traveling. However, there are heartier breakfast options on the menu that might catch your eye and you can’t forget about the Bloody Marys. Though tempting (and delicious!), your body will thank you for staying in shape while visiting Las Vegas.
Another healthy breakfast option is Juice Bar. Located between Reliquary Spa and Kelly Cardenas Salon, Juice Bar offers coffee, espresso and smoothies. Signature juices like Go Green or 24 Carrot are a great way to start your day. Combining a healthy breakfast with working out in the hotel gym will make your trip to Las Vegas even more enjoyable.
Stay Fit Tip #2: Drink Lots of Water
It’s a desert out here and dehydration is a serious matter. Whether you’re a Vegas local or are enjoying business travel in Las Vegas, you know this city gets hot – triple-digit-degree-for-weeks hot. It’s easy to become dehydrated under the desert sun. According to the Mayo Clinic Health System, the recommended amount of water to consume in a day is 3.7 liters (124 ounces) for men and 2.7 liters (92 ounces) for women. Your body size, level of activity, and overall health can also affect how much water you need. Stay fit and healthy while traveling to Las Vegas and remember to hydrate with water (not alcohol!) and eat fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the day to help replenish water and electrolytes naturally.
Stay Fit Tip #3: Hit the Gym
Most resorts will have a fitness center or hotel gym that is available for use during your stay in Las Vegas. At the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the fitness center is located on the second floor within Reliquary Spa. It offers state-of-the-art equipment and numerous plasma screens to make working out on vacation easy and fun. If you don’t like working out at the hotel gym, you can still get in a great vacation workout in your room or just by walking a few laps around the resort. And on the plus side, you’ll have plenty of music memorabilia to see as you walk by the resort’s retail shops.
