5 Fitness Tips For Your Trip To Marietta, Georgia

Marietta, Georgia, offers plenty of opportunities for adventure travelers, whether you prefer outdoor recreation or indoor workouts. From hiking trails to community fitness centers, discover five ways to stay fit during your trip to Marietta.

 

Kayak the Chattahoochee River

Just north of Marietta, the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area offers plenty of opportunities to get out on the water and enjoy the area's natural beauty. In fact, if you have enough time during your trip, you can kayak, canoe, or raft all 48 miles that the recreation area covers. If you didn't travel with your kayak, you can rent one and everything you need for a day on the river from several authorized outfitters.

 1

 

Hike the Kennesaw Mountain Trails

Located on the west side of Marietta, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is home to some of the most gorgeous hiking trails in the Atlanta metro area. Take your pick from about a dozen different trails, which range from under a mile to more than 15 miles. Download a copy of the Kennesaw Mountain Calorie Counter before you go so you can keep track of the energy you're burning as you cover ground. As an added bonus, the guide also offers details about the fascinating historic sites you'll see along the way.

Run a Local 5K Race

Running a 5K race is a fantastic way to get to know the city you're visiting while working out at the same time. Marietta hosts many 5K races throughout the year, many of which support local charities and nonprofits. Join the Veterans Memorial 5K Run, the Anything Is Possible 5K, or the Dashing Through the Square 5K Walk and Run. Note that most races have small participation fees, and you may need to register in advance.

 

Stay at a Hotel With a Great Gym

If you prefer squeezing in a workout close to your home base while on vacation, you'll find several Marietta hotels with great gyms and exercise facilities. Many hotels in this area feature fully equipped fitness centers where you can run on a treadmill, lift free weights, and practice yoga. 

For more exercise options, look for a hotel with a large pool where you can swim laps. Note that many Marietta hotels have outdoor pools, so be sure to check the weather before you go to make sure it's swimming season.

 

Work Out at Custer Park Sports & Fitness Center

For more extensive indoor workout facilities, make your way to Custer Park Sports & Fitness Center. This city-owned fitness center spans 26,000 square feet and features brand-new cardio and workout equipment. You can also take fitness classes, join a basketball game, and grab some nutritious snacks from the healthy vending machines. This facility is open seven days a week, and nonresidents must pay a nominal admission fee.

While Marietta has plenty of historic attractions to explore and Southern food to try, you don't need to slow your pace when you visit this Atlanta-area gem. Put the above adventurous pursuits at the top of your Marietta must-do list.

4 Ways To Prep For Your Next Adventure

If you've scheduled a travel adventure for yourself, you are undoubtedly excited — and probably nervous. The best adventures are the ones that test your limits, and you can tell you're approaching your limit when your excitement begins to approach fear. The best tool to help you deal with those pre-adventure jitters is preparation. Being prepared will also go a long way towards keeping you safe.

 

Read and Research

Find out all you can about your destination and the activities you'll join. Read blog posts and articles by those who have gone before you. Read any information your guide may have provided, but look for information and checklists that other outfitters have published, too. Read up on your destination and your activity, and study maps until you feel confident that you understand exactly where you're headed.

 

1st

 

Browse the Latest Gear

Shopping for new gear is not just a fun pastime, it can be part of your preparation strategy as well. Of course, you can't spend your way to mastery. If your gear is even a few years old, though, new versions could have major improvements and new features that you should know about. Research with the intention of keeping your gear current, but balance that with the knowledge that most improvements are incremental or even cosmetic. Remember that you don't have to buy every shiny new thing on the market.

 

2nd

 

Roll Out a Safety Net

While there's no point dwelling on every danger you might face, there is a lot of value in being prepared. Your safety net should include a first aid kit that will cover the most common injuries for your planned activities, a cell phone that's likely to work in your destination and that you've programmed with local emergency numbers, and the right insurance coverage at home and abroad. Membership programs like MedJetHorizon add to your safety net by ensuring that you can get back to your home hospital quickly if you need serious medical care.

 

Train Your Mind and Body

Doing your research, updating your gear, and being prepared for an emergency are important, but nothing can substitute for being in the right physical and mental shape for your adventure. If you're already regularly participating in similar activities, you only need to maintain your condition or make slight adjustments to your fitness regimen to be ready. If you're out of shape or haven't been active in a related sport recently, you should start training weeks or even months ahead of time.

 

3

 

General strength and cardiovascular fitness are very important, but specific training is vital if your life will literally be in your own hands. Look for ways to train that offer conditions as close to possible as those you'll be experiencing on your adventure.

Adventure travel is a great way to add excitement to your life and expand your boundaries. Responsible preparation is the key to an adventure that is as safe and fun as it can possibly be.

ADVF Iceland - Mac's Wrap

What’s the ‘real’ hidden agenda behind travel?

What makes the adventure of a lifetime?

Is it the new sites and exciting activities?

Is it the history of the country?

Maybe the vast landscape of foreign territory?

Or do you use travel as an escape? Escape from work life. Escape from family life. Escape from the boring routine that you find yourself trapped in.

A chance to meet new people where they don't know your past, have zero judgment and pre-conceived ideas of who you are and how you should behave.

Now, I might be biased here, but AdventureFit Travel offers much more than just the adventure. AdventureFit Travel delivers on making your experience unrivalled to any other travel experience. Yes, we get to explore some amazing countries from all over the world. Yes, we get to be coached by some of the best athletes and coaches in multiple sports and industries. And yes we get to participate in a huge range of bucket list activities.

But what makes us unique from our competitors? The community.

AdventureFit Travel is a magnet for fun loving, easy going, and not-scared-of-adrenaline type of people. I have been on multiple tours from around the world using multiple tour group companies and do you want to know the biggest difference? I have never connected more with people who chose AdventureFit to travel with.

With Iceland being the landslide victor of a dream destination in an ADVF client survey, it was not surprising that we sold out the trip in only 30 days.

When NASA invades a country to simulate and practice the landing on the moon, you know you are in for a very unique landscape, and Iceland is a country like no other.

The geo thermal plates means that they have 95-97% << Check that<<< of renewable energy. Because of this, they actually use the most energy per capita as it’s so cheap and clean. Icelandic people don't believe in turning off the heaters in their house. Instead of turning them down (or off), they just open the windows!

This is very strange to see when walking the city of Reykjavik at night.
Here we are with thermal tops and bottoms, two t-shirts, a jumper, a big puffy jacket, gloves and a beanie (and still cold), while all houses have their windows open trying to cool down their house!

Not only do they have the most renewable source of energy but they also have the cleanest air and water. Iceland was shipping their water to Australia (Melbourne), and our scale of cleanliness didn't even record how pure the Icelandic water was. Australia then had to make a new scale that saw Iceland’s water a whole 3 points above Australia’s purest water!

And obviously, the Vikings call it home. A bit of history: convicts were sent over by the Irish, where they could start fresh in uncharted territories. These criminals kept the same mindset in their new land and continued with violent assaults against their fellow men and women.

Nowadays though, this once crime filled ‘bad-ass’ country is one of the only countries on the planet to not have an army. After all, the past rulers of Iceland, Norway, couldn't even give Iceland away. Instead they just upped and left the country when they had had enough.

Centuries have now past and the Vikings have now vanished. But in 2017, AdventureFit Travel Iceland + Iceland 2.0 were born.

25 people spanning two back to back trips braved the icy cold conditions to get their opportunity to see the lights of all lights - The Aurora Borealis, and boy they did not disappoint! Some people were lucky enough to see them over the city of Reykjavik, but to really see the best of this magic it was best to get out of the city and away from any light pollution.

We pulled up to a beautiful lake where the full moon was literally so bright that it felt like dusk. Close to midnight, we could clearly see the facial expressions on each other’s faces. After ten minutes of looking directly up in pure amazement, we decided to lay down on the ground in silence to give our necks a break and to take in this incredible dance from Mother Nature.

And that’s what it was like. Watching this bright electrifying light dance through the sky right on top of you; it put your whole world into perspective. This was truly unlike any other experience I have ever had.

The Blue Lagoon was also another bucket list item for many on the trip. The Blue Lagoon is a privately owned area where there are natural geo thermal heated pools. The water is a bright baby blue colour where the outside temperature is close to freezing yet you are super toasty in the naturally heated pools having a beer with your mates!

A big cheer erupted one night we were there. The Northern lights prediction was low, so no one was expecting to see them, and then all of a sudden, over one hundred people spread out across the different areas in the pool erupted in screams and cheers. Everyone looked up to see the night sky be lit up by a sea of green lights.

Life is made up of moments and this was one that we will never forget.

As I mentioned in the opening of this post, the best travel experiences are predominately determined by the people you meet and the company who you share the experience with. Both Iceland 1.0 + Iceland 2.0 were very fortunate to have the world’s best in their chosen sport keep a watchful eye and give us some training insights while they coached us for a workout.

One of these two people was the two time ‘fittest women on earth’, Annie Thorisdottir. Even if you are not into CrossFit, this woman demanded your attention and respect. Annie was down to earth and very informative on how she coached us through certain movements and scaling progressions. We found ourselves lost in time at the end of the workout while she answered questions regarding her training, nutrition, mindset, and of course the future of her and the sport of CrossFit.

Being the country that is home to some of the strongest people in the world, we managed to score Magness Ver Magnusson – four time world’s strongest man, and he opened the doors to his gym for a private power lifting and strong man training session. Talk about presence!! This man just oozes strength, power and wisdom.

He took us through the traditional power lifting movements (squat, bench press and deadlift) and then he taught us how to be more efficient with our strong man training. Teaching us how to work with atlas stones, circuit dumbbells, logs and big heavy and awkward tools.

A surprise inclusion to the itinerary was a little 45 min trek to an abandon plane wreck. This USA passenger plane went down on the water’s edge of Iceland in 1974. All 15 passengers survived and it was later found that the plane crash was due to pilot error. Apparently the pilot forgot to switch fuel tanks.

Not only did we find the abandoned plane wreck, but only 100m away was an abandoned black beach. OK, I know! I know you can’t get an abandoned beach but this was almost hidden. There were no human beings for as far as the eye could see! The incredible sunset on top of the ocean while standing in the soft but harsh black, volcanic rock beach was, for me, a huge personal highlight.

Another moment that turned from expectation into appreciation – another moment where you were just truly grateful to be alive!

One of the most beautiful things about Iceland in November is that the sun rises at around 10am and it sets around 4pm.

At first this is quite strange! But then you realise that you are trapped in either a sunrise or sunset. This makes for the perfect light for photos, but it also gives the city of Reykjavik a permanent golden glow. On December 21st, they have their longest night: 22 hours of darkness. On the 10th of June, they have their longest day of sunlight, and you end up with people are wearing sunglasses at midnight!!

Iceland was an incredible country to visit!

The food was delicious, like seriously delicious!! The people are friendly, and of course the scenery is just spectacular. For me though, one of my most favourite parts of the whole trip was road tripping with my new best mates!

Some days we would drive the country side for 5-6 hours, other times we were only in the car for a short while, but each time we all started the new adventure for that day, we became closer and closer. On one of the days where we attempted to drive the Golden Circle (a major tourist attraction consisting of Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir – a naturally forming geothermal area with erupting hot pools, and the massive Gullfoss waterfall) we had a complete snow storm.

We were forced to drive at 10km an hour in huge winds and snow where visibility was about 2 meters in front of the cars bonnet.

There were laughs and screams, singing and dancing, storytelling, and of course some nervous energy, but despite not actually making it passed the national park due to the extreme weather, some people said it was the best day on the trip.

Each AdventureFit Travel trip builds from the last, and when you travel the world with absolute legends of people, it doesn't matter if you miss out on one sightseeing activity or have to change and adjust plans last minute. It all comes down to the people who you share this experience with.
After being a little anxious and apprehensive about the pressure of making these trips live up to expectations, after meeting these easy going strangers who are just wanting a good time, I can now very proudly say that I have some of my best mates now from all over the world.

Thank you, Iceland! You definitely did not disappoint.

And thank you to all who took that adventure with us, you now have made life time memories with lifelong friends.

ADVF Goes Thailand - Mac's Wrap

Since its inception in 2014, AdventureFit Travel has been hosting hundreds of people from all over the world on adventure-packed fitness holidays, although this Koh Tao, Thailand trip was a first for the company.

Upon the private request of some crazy AdventureFitters from Emerald in outback Australia, ADVF was heading to Thailand to put on another world-class holiday featuring some special guests, such as world weightlifting champion Dmitry Klokov, and a couple of other keen AdventureFitters from the USA.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



The itinerary was jam packed with activities such as scuba diving, rock climbing, abseiling, Muay Thai, working out, and of course, a 6-hour weightlifting workshop with the Russian champion - oh and how could we forget the unbeatable local Thai food!

For the two Americans, Kristina and Jesse, they were very quickly welcomed into the tribe as we all battled it out in the hot and humid conditions at CrossFit Koh Tao on night one, after a day of travel to the island.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



How does the saying go again? Those who workout together ….. Oh, I'm not sure, but you get the point that we were sweaty and broke the ice very quickly.

As tradition tells us, the first night’s welcome dinner is always on ADVF. So naturally the guests took advantage of this and we hit up one of the best restaurants on the island, Fizz Beachlounge.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



Day two started with all eyes on Dmitry Klokov. With lots of muscle, skin, sweat and testosterone. No one stood a chance, walking away from the day without a man-crush.

Many of the clients warmed up ready to impress the champion with how much they could lift, although Dmtry didn't want a bar of it. Weights were quickly stacked back and only barbells remained for the rest of the day.

Wow! Who would have thought that an empty barbell could hurt so much!

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel, Dmitry Klokov



The importance of static holds were understandable when everyone's weakness was exposed of how little static training we did, and also how we could be utilising our legs much more effectively, making us immediately stronger.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel, Dmitry Klokov



"Smash the bone" and "use your quads!" were repeated all day by Dmitry. We started to wonder if that was the only English he knew?
All in all, this was a very valuable day on the itinerary for all participants, and most put this day as their #1 experience for the trip.

To keep the body moving and to train off the soreness from the workshop with Dmitry, we started day three with a boot camp style workout on the beach.

This was beautiful! The tide was out and the sun was rising on the horizon. It was a workout consisting of body weight exercises, a sand run, and a swim - a perfect start to the day.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



After breakfast we headed up the hill for rock climbing and abseiling with a spectacular view of the island from the epic Fraggle Rock.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



It was here that some tears were shed and some adversity was overcome as a few of the crew were scared of heights and had never done or wanted to throw themselves off a rock backwards, or even make the climb.

Just like a family unit, everyone supported each other to overcome their fears and all had a very successful day and could tick another item off their bucket list.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



Once their feet were safely back on land, were were then taken to the water for a booze cruise.
As you can imagine, drinking and water shouldn't be used in the same sentence too often, although this was an exception! When in Rome, right? Or should it be Thailand?

If anyone knows what happened past this point, we would love for you to fill in the gaps here as many of us had too much fun! ;)

 

AdventureFit Travel, adventure, fitness, travel, AdventureFit



Day four started very slow for all. This was a "free day" where we could all have options for what activities we wanted to do. After all it's our holiday, right?
Some opted to attend a Thai cooking class where we cooked 4 beautiful traditional Thai meals. Others opted for massages, the beach, the pool, shopping, and of course, more food!

We tied day four off with a group yoga session, the perfect way to wind down our rest day.

 

AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



Day five was spent back in the water. Being an island and one of the best places in the world to scuba dive, we headed out into the coral reef that surrounds the island of Koh Tao.

For most this was another first experience. And what better way to try your first dive than here.

The view underwater in the crystal clear environment was breathtaking. Lucky we had oxygen strapped to our backs!
For those who have never tried scuba diving, it's a very thrilling experience. We were taken through and had to demonstrate the safety procedures of losing your mouthpiece, how to clear your goggles, and how to equalise. We dove down to 12m where we were immersed in schools of bright coloured fish and reef.

 

 AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



It didn't end on day five though.

After diving, we were put through our paces at Island Muay Thai. Again, a first for many. Again, another sweat session. Again, heaps of fun!

So much respect goes to MMA fighters for their level of fitness and mental toughness.

 

12



On average we did 3 x 3 min sparring rounds and wow! We had never sweat so much or worked so hard! Elbows, kicks, punches, breathing, jumping and technique work took it right out of us! We of course then indulged in some amazing food at another top restaurant on the island, Barracuda.

Day six was the last activity day, which started off with a hike up the hill and around to the other side of the island where we proved science right by abiding to the laws of gravity and throwing ourselves off a 12m cliff into the ocean below.

The highlight here was, again, the fear (False Evidence Appearing Real) that we had to break through to experience the rush of the free fall.

Not everyone challenged the 12m fall. There were also 3m and 9m drops that also tested the mind!

In the water after a big hike, we kept moving, although this time snorkelling on the surface of the water, breathtakingly crystal clear and full of marine wildlife.

 

 AdventureFit Travel, AdventureFit, adventure, fitness, travel



Now just like we opened the trip, we closed the trip with another workout at CrossFit Koh Tao, enjoying another partner workout and really cementing in the comradeship and family unit that we had on this trip.

Reflecting in the pool after it's all done and dusted, here in Koh Tao, we really squeezed every last bit of sweat out of this island.

AdventureFit is very lucky to play host to bucket list adventures and holidays, but it's you guys who make the dream come true.

We are honestly so proud of the personal achievements that have been accomplished over the last week, and if there is anyone who is looking to run any trips like this with any destination in the world, we would love to play host.

We love tailoring the trip around your ideas to make it incredibly easy and affordable, where you just rock up and we do the rest.

A huge thank you to the 11 legends who made this trip happen.

Thanks for the laughs and some seriously good times!
