Typically, vacations are all about indulgences. They usually involve lots of food, perhaps some fruity drinks, and not much exercise.

It is no wonder that most people come back from vacation with a few more pounds, and not just from the souvenirs in their luggage.

Now more than ever though, hotels and resorts all over the world are helping guests stay active, healthy and refreshed in a variety of new and unique ways.

Here are three offerings to help anyone, from beginner to advanced athlete, get and stay in shape on vacation:

Try Paddleboarding at Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa

The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa allows endurance athletes, weekend warriors and fitness buffs alike to utilize their upscale recreational facilities and fitness offerings which now include stand up paddleboarding at Lake Las Vegas, a private lake in Henderson, Nevada.

Paddle to the Core, as this experience is called, gives guests the rare opportunity to experience stand up paddleboarding (SUP) classes, including SUP Yoga and SUP Pilates, board rentals and lessons for beginners.

The resort also prides itself on being a mecca of soft adventure sports offering rock climbing, kayaking and white water rafting. Who has time for a casino with all these outdoor activities to do?

Learn Why Kettlebell is the Hotest New Sport at Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa

For anyone interested in building strength and trying their hand at one of the newest trends for fitness fanatics, head to the Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa. This resort, located in Ponte Vedre, FL near Jacksonville, is proving to be ahead of the curve by offering kettlebell fitness classes for guests and local spa members.

The kettlebell classes, taught by certified instructors, introduce a workout based on a combination of aerobic and anaerobic energy systems. They are held throughout the week in the resort's spa and are perfect for a pre-beach tone up.
