The 5 Best Exercises to Help You Prepare for Your European Vacation

Heading to Europe this Summer? How To Physically Prepare


A European vacation can be quite the adventure, but before you climb the stairs of the ancient Colosseum in Rome, navigate your way to the top of Saint Mark's Basilica in Venice, or experience the breathtaking Gaudí's Parc Güell in Barcelona, it’s important to be prepared for the physical component of what such a vacation requires:


  • Long-haul flights, potentially with multiple transfers.

  • Lifting heavy baggage.

  • Climbing stairs and navigating narrow passageways.

  • Walking all day, often on cobbled, uneven paving stones.
