We appreciate that many of our clients have busy lifestyles, from business to family commitments. Hence, we are entirely flexible and work to your schedule, to ensure you can still work out and be healthy on a time budget.
However, some of you may also want to get a good workout in whilst out of town, be it on a business trip or family holiday. With that in mind, we have put together a handy list of equipment you can use to work out whilst on the go. Many of these pieces of equipment are great for even squeezing a workout in whilst in your hotel room and are easy and small enough to put in your carry-on or car!
- Resistance Bands
Resistance bands are excellent pieces of lightweight and affordable equipment. Honestly, we cannot recommend them enough! Even if you are in a small hotel room, you can add some effective resistance to your workouts; from squats to leg extensions to push-ups, they are a super simple addition that will work wonders.
- Skipping Rope
Even you’re planning on squeezing in a good cardio workout whilst travelling, a skipping rope (or jump rope) will be your best friend. They’re excellent for a quick 10-minute session that will be effective for burning calories. You may want to take it outside if your hotel room floor isn’t particularly noise absorbent though! Also keep in mind that skipping exercises are particularly impactful on your joints. Make sure to include a good warm-up and cool-down period to keep your workout effective and safe.
Portable kettlebells that you can fill with water or sand are great additions to your travel equipment. They can deflate for easy packing and mean you can take your kettlebell routine wherever you go. Kettlebell workout on the beach, anyone?
- Yoga Mat
A travel-size yoga mat will take up very little room in your suitcase. They’re lightweight, foldable and will ensure you have a practical and comfortable space to work out. There are plenty of free yoga instructional videos out there to pop on whilst you unwind.
It goes without saying, but apps don’t take up any additional space in your suitcase! Make sure to install your favourite workout apps and streaming services. Even if it’s just for streaming music whilst you work out, or watching instructional videos, apps are a must. You can even check up on your progress on the Go-Fit app!
