Man handing out stripper fliersAs a city known for excess and debauchery, Vegas probably doesn’t seem like the ideal vacation spot for those who are trying to stay in shape. Sure, most hotels have fitness centers with state-of the art equipment and a slew of aerobics classes. In fact, Las Vegas has a ton of unique options from yoga among dolphins to stripper classes! But who has time for regimented exercise when there’s wages to be made, drinks to slam and strippers to ogle? No worries! With my Top 10 ways to stay fit on your Vegas vacation, you can have your buffet and eat it too:

10. Hike from the MGM Grand parking structure to pretty much any location inside the MGM Grand.

9. Run away from the people inside the hotel trying to sell you a time share.

8. Run away from the canvassers on the Strip trying to hand you smut (or better yet, take a handout from each and every one of them).

7. Run from your air-conditioned car to an air-conditioned building.

6. Engage in marathon martini drinking with former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman.

5. Do some curls: Order two yard long margaritas, one for each arm. Lift, curl, drink, uncurl, repeat.

4. Now dance on top of the table.

3. Find the nearest restroom and puke your guts out.

2. Skip the drive-through at McDonalds. Go to the Tunnel of Love Drive-Through Wedding Chapel instead.

1. Sweat off any extra calories by anticipating your significant other’s reaction to the “Party Animal” tattoo on your forehead.

Yes, I’m from Las Vegas. But I’d like to clarify a few things: I don’t live in a hotel and I’m not a showgirl. I put my pasties on one nipple at a time, just like everyone else. I’m a regular girl who plunges off the side of ridiculously tall Las Vegas landmarks and writes about it for a living. I also ride roller coasters, hang at hotel spas, shoot zombies in the face and take art lessons from bottlenose dolphins. You know, normal stuff. My career as a journalist and copywriter has led me out of Vegas and around the world, but the 24/7 normality of Vegas sucks me back in every time. Am I oblivious to the plethora of slot machines everywhere I go? Sure. But that’s because I’m distracted by all the pretty lights. Follow me on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
