The Australian Bureau of Statistics estimates that 2.4 million Australians travelled overseas during 2010. Of this number, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade estimates that 25,000 experienced difficulties whilst away.
Jo Sharp, owner of SharpMoves Fitness, runs Bali fitness retreats that allow individuals to maintain their health and fitness when travelling.
“Just because there is no fitness centre doesn’t mean your fitness needs to be neglected,” said Sharp. “There is no need for a treadmill when we have jungle treks at the doorstep.”
Jo recommends being resourceful so you can enjoy your surroundings and combine health, fitness and travel.
