How to Stay Fit on The Road
Hotel gym not up to snuff? No sweat. Here are 9 pieces of travel-friendly workout equipment you can use to get your blood pumping just about anywhere. Plus — other fitness-related accessories like dissolvable laundry sheets and massage therapy balls.
Manduka eKO Superlite Travel Yoga Mat
This lightweight mat is a yogi favorite. It's made from an eco-friendly biodegradable tree rubber which won’t flake or fade, and can be easily folded or rolled into your suitcase.
S'well Water Bottle
If you haven't noticed, we're kind of obsessed with these water bottles. To give you the rundown: S'well bottles are non-toxic and non-leaching, and will keep your beverage cold for 24 hours and hot for 12, making them perfect not only for your workouts, but also for your morning cup of joe!
This is more than just a pedometer. This fitness band can also track calories burned and active minutes, as well as how long and well you sleep. A wireless sync dongle is also included for easy connectivity to your Windows, Apple or Android device.
TRX Go Suspension Training Kit
Don't be intimidated by this intense-looking training kit (which, fun fact, was designed by a former Navy SEAL). The suspension trainer is super easy to use and comes with a manual of 300 exercises to help guide your workout. The best part? You don't need any additional equipment— just your own body weight.
ActiveProZone Massage Therapy Balls
If you've ever walked off a long-haul flight feeling as stiff as a board, you'd do well to invest in these massage therapy balls. Sturdier than a tennis ball but softer and larger than a lacrosse ball, the product can be used for trigger point treatment, myofascial release and stress or prenatal therapy. We don't travel without 'em!
No one wants to lug around luggage full of workout gear. So when it comes to selecting great on-the-go fitness equipment, we're all for products with multipurpose appeal. Which brings us to this nifty resistance bands. They can be used for stretching and strength training, and come in five resistance levels, so you can modify your workout in a snap.
Travelon Laundry Soaps
Traveling can get expensive, and the last thing any of us want to spend money on is laundering our dirty gym threads. Instead, we de-stink our clothes using these ingenious laundry soap sheets. They dissolve into water, allowing you to easily hand wash your clothes in a sink.
Adidas Stella McCartney Sneakers
These designer sneaks work just as well in the weight room as they do on the streets. We love their eye-catching color and snazzy textile upper.
