Exercising while traveling can be a hassle sometimes. If you stay in a hotel, you’ll usually have a gym to rely on, but they don’t always have the right equipment to fit your personal needs.
For others, if you are renting a airbnb or vrbo you don’t have any access to a gym.
No worries, we are here to help!
Below is a link to our 5 favorite pieces of equipment that are PERFECT to bring on trips (not to mention they all pack really well). We encourage you to #travel far, travel often, and always stay #fit.
1. Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are a versatile exercise tool that allows you to get a full body workout without putting stress on your joints. For travel purposes, they are lighter to carry around than a dumbbell and can be stored anywhere.

2. Jump Rope
I love using the jump rope! It’s a great tool for coordination and conditioning, and can be great in any high intensity interval training routine.

3. Mini Bands
Building your posterior chain is important and this is where the mini bands shine. With a variety of different exercises to choose from, the mini bands are a great tool to take on a trip. (Don’t skip leg day!)

4. Adjustable Kettlebell
Kettlebells are amazing, and to know there is an adjustable one you can take for travel! Well you just can’t beat that. Kettlebells are known to improve strength, balance, core strength, and range of motion. On top of that, they help improve body awareness which can’t be understated.

5. Perfect Pull-up Bar
I am a HUGE fan of pull-ups and to know you can bring a pull-up bar with you one anywhere is music to my ears. The perfect pull-up is not only great for the variations of pull-ups it allows you to do, but also because of the ability to place it on the floor and use it for push-ups and dips. If you are unable to do pull-ups, I encourage you use this tool to help you and don’t stop trying!
