Exercise like a local

To stay in shape while you’re traveling, think outside the box. Can’t find any of the activities you know and love? Try a new one—perhaps one that is particularly popular in your vacation destination. Sign up for tango lessons in Buenos Aires, rock-climbing courses in Grand Teton, guided walkabouts in the outback, or tai chi classes in Hong Kong. Tourist-board, national-park, and city web sites have information on many such activities. Maxlifestyle.net has information on everything from getting started to gearing up to planning a trip around 14 different activities—from hiking to snowboarding to meditation.
