Check out the hotel gym.
One of the most obvious suggestions, but many hotels do have a fitness center! This is easy to scope out in advance on the hotel website and get a sense of what equipment is available.

Explore local gym passes or studio new client specials.
If you’re looking for a more traditional gym experience, see if any local gyms offer a free pass to new clients. If you belong to a gym that’s a national chain, you may even be able to go with your existing membership. Inquire within.

It’s easy to let things slide if you don’t have a plan. Before you know it, weeks have gone by. Make sure to get back into your regular routine ASAP to stay consistent. It might even help you combat those post-vacay blues.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated in those hot climates!
