Are you always traveling?

Whether you are or not, we all take a trip during some point in our lives. Whether it is a business trip, visiting family for the holidays or a relaxing vacation on the beach, it is important to maintain wellness. Regardless of how busy you are, exercise should always be a top priority. Excuses won’t keep (or get) you in great shape, but consistent exercise will. With that said, don’t leave home without these 6 exercise items.

Resistance bands

There probably isn’t a more versatile piece of exercise equipment than resistance bands. Here are several benefits of using them in your workout routine:

  • Cost-effective
  • Doesn’t stress the joints
  • Lightweight & portable; easy to store them
  • Able to do a variety of exercise routines
  • Perfect exercise equipment if not looking to get bulky

Running shoes

Something tells me you don’t work out in your Stacy Adams or heels. It is essential to pack some quality running shoes to train in. Make sure they are durable. Bring some gym shorts, sweatpants and tank tops too!

Laptop

Your laptop isn’t just for business. You can also utilize for working out as well. Bring one of your favorite exercise DVDs or search on YouTube for an exercise routine to do.

Stopwatch

Need the get the most out of your work out? Bring a stopwatch or download a stopwatch app on your smartphone. A stopwatch will make sure you’re not resting longer than you should; therefore, keeping the workout intensity high.

Pedometer

Would you like to walk 5 miles every day while out of town? Well don’t forget your pedometer or download a pedometer app! This little exercise equipment tracks each step you take. Aim to take 10,000 steps.

Ab Wheel

Dream of having six-pack abs of steel? Ok, enough of sounding like a cheesy infomercial selling a useless ab machine. If you do several reps of ab rollouts using the ab wheel, I guarantee your abs will feel it.
