Staying Fit The Island Way – St. Simons Island Gyms And Fitness Clubs

The word “vacation” may conjure visions of do-nothing days filled with slacking along the shores or basking by the pool, but it’s no excuse to let healthy habits fall to the wayside (even if you do sneak a cheat here and there). A big part of the appeal of the Golden Isles is based on our unspoiled location and the pristine beauty of the island destinations that make up the Southern Georgia coastal cluster – and it’s not simply meant to be admired from afar! Instead of multi-slacking, opt for multi-goaling on your next Golden Isles getaway, adding a little fitness to your beach escape!

Get out there and get active! There’s nothing like starting your day with an early morning stroll or yoga session on the beach, where the salty breezes and frothy waves rush to greet you. You can spend a full day seeking out the hidden gems of the island chain via bicycle, or rent a kayak for new perspectives on your path to discovery. If your ideal workout includes sports courts or a little competitive challenge, consider an afternoon of golf or tennis. At the end of the day, relax it all away as you unwind at a local spa – the perfect reward for a hard day’s play!

Of course, there are plenty of options available for more structured exercise as well. If you’re looking to mingle with other health-conscious islanders, why not check out a local gym? The Golden Isles is home to a range of fitness facilities offering cardio training to yoga classes, and everything in-between. Many even offer virtual workouts and training sessions that you can access for free from the comfort of your vacation rental, or anywhere along the island chain from your mobile device. If you want a little guidance without the social experience, in the setting of your choice, it doesn’t get much better than this!
