Here’s what happens to your exercise regimen when you skip the gym for a week

Even just one week away from the gym can affect your workouts and prevent you from reaching your fitness goals. With TrainAway you can access great nearby gyms no matter where you travel to.

We all have training schedules to help us reach our fitness goals. We also all know how important rest is, so maybe you scheduled a rest day in your calendar – and somehow one rest day turned into seven (we’ve all been there).

You’re going to feel out of shape when coming back to the gym after a week off. More than a week away from training affects your cardiovascular fitness, lean muscle mass, and insulin sensitivity. The two types of workout that suffer the most are High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and strength training. After a couple of weeks off you’ll definitely notice a deterioration in your level of fitness when you do get back to the gym . The fitter you are the longer it will take your muscles to turn to flub, so don’t let a week or two of holiday fun ruin your fitness goals.

Next time you plan a vacation and want to stay fit while away check out the TrainAway app. TrainAway shows you gyms in the area you are traveling to and gives you convenient access to great fitness facilities no matter where you are. The only thing you need to do is to download the app, find a gym, and get training.
