The experienced traveller is very much familiar with the usual problem of workout logistics accompanying almost every single trip. You can solve this of course by taking advantage of your environment in the way I previously described in my post on how to stay fit during travelling. But today I would like to present to you an entirely different approach. For this I have hand-picked some of the most useful gym- and workout-items I could find on the internet which should help you stay in perfect shape when on your trip while not taking up more space in your suitcase than the usual portion of stuff you shouldn’t have packed but brought along anyway. Enjoy!
1. I Glow - Travel Yoga Mat - PVC-free, Weight: 317,51g, Thickness: 2 mm
This yoga mat is the perfect solution if you’re running short on space in your trolley. Then again this isn’t very helpful if you can’t decide which one of the beautiful colors to pick and thus have to bring all of them.
2. Rogue - Speed Jump Rope
If you like jumping rope in a sprint-like fashion this speed rope will do the trick for you. Plus: it’s really extra-small.
3. TRX - Portable Gym TRX Kit
Why not bring your whole resistance training equipment with you with this set from TRX?
4. Trigger Point Therapy - The Grid Mini Foam Roller
For some well-deserved recovery you should try a massage with this really practical foam roller by Trigger Point Performance. Should fit into your travel bag without any trouble.
5. Vapur - Foldable reusable water bottle "Runway", Capacity: .5 Liters (18oz)
To make sure you stay well hydrated on the road without producing any unnecessary waste or having to carry a bulky water bottle around at all times, try out the anti-bottle by Vapur. The more you drink the smaller it gets – perfect.
Do you have any special gadgets that are always to be found in your travel bag? Let me know, I’m always up for some new ideas.
