Outdoor workout, beach running, shadow Muay Thai

It can be hard to stick to a workout routine when you’re travelling and without access to your usual gym and training partners.

There’s a plethora of websites and apps out there that offer travel workouts if you’re struggling for ideas. But I like to keep things simple and preferably outdoors. Why not enjoy a bit of nature and see some of the local sights?

This week I’ve been up in Perth again for work, following my visit in June. On Friday instead of a typical gym workout, I decided to take advantage of the close proximity to Cottesloe beach. Although it was cloudy and blowing a gale, the running track and grassy areas that border the coastline provide the perfect location for a run and some shadow work in the fresh sea breeze.

I started with a jog along the beach-side track, which included some stairs and inclines. I’m not a huge fan of running, but when it’s next to the ocean I can deal with it well. Getting your breathing right is really important. I experimented with deep inhales and short, explosive exhales similar to what you would do when throwing strikes in a fight.

After the jog, my legs felt like lead due to the fact that I rarely run long distances. But it showed me that it’s something I need to do more often. I finished off with some shadow Muay Thai on the grass.

I was sweating under my hoodie by the end of it. This proves again that you don’t need a bunch of fancy equipment to get a good workout.

  1. Hey there,

    Awesome post. Outdoor training, especially during travels, is a must. You get to experience new surroundings and get to breathe in air from different places. Also, if you’re on a run, you can take note of restaurants, pubs, or sites that you can visit later in your stay.

    I usually run around my hotel until I find a decent hill(like the one to your right in the image above) or staircase and do a couple of sprints, and mix in some bodyweight movements, i.e. pushups, jump squats, etc. If the area is secluded or away from heavy traffic, I’ll do some shadow boxing/kickboxing. This always takes my workout to the next level.

    Again, great article. Keep em coming.
