5 Reasons Why a Fitness Holiday Should Be on Your Bucket List

Rolling hills or serene beaches, sightseeing and good food—everyone loves a vacation. In the aftermath of quarantine that has gone on and off for more than one and half years, there has been a rising interest in taking a break from daily grind and going on a relaxing trip. In light of the pandemic, the importance of self-care, holistic health and mental rejuvenation is being talked about more than ever, and wellness tourism, which brings the elements of a vacation together with those of health and wellness practices, is predicted to be a rising trend.

According to a report by Global Wellness Institute, wellness tourism is predicted to grow at an average annual rate of 7.1 percent by 2022, higher than the 6.4 percent growth rate of global tourism itself. While going on adventure trips, treks, or spa retreats has been a vacation trend for the past decade, it is only recently that people are embarking on their own vacations centred around health and wellness. “Gone are the days when you spend your trip simply relaxing, binge-eating junk food or indulging in alcoholic beverages, and return home to find that your pre-vacation fitness has declined,” says Suresh Srinivasan, New-Delhi based marathoner and avid health and wellness enthusiast and blogger, who goes on a health holiday every few months to recharge himself. “Nowadays, people want to carry their workout routines and healthy habits along with them while on vacation, and also return with new motivation.”

Due to the cultural presence of ancient and alternative health practices, India is a hub of wellness tourism. From the Ayurvedic treatments on offer at Kerala, to the therapeutic meditation and fitness programs of Rishikesh, you can pick from the many options available across the country’s various tourist spots, curated for your health benefits. Or take your inspiration from Suresh, who took an impromptu trip to the tranquil Tirthan Valley, Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, and turned it into a running destination vacation, where they enjoyed staying at scenic locations, hill running, biking, paragliding, and healthy eating.
