When you have a busy schedule that requires a lot of travelling, it can be difficult to stay fit and keep your routine going. Whether it’s a business trip or family vacations, it’s always bound to affect your exercise routine. There may be occasions when you’re travelling that you come across accommodation that provides gym and fitness facilities, but not all of them do. Here’s why on-the-go gear can be brilliant when you’re out and about that can benefit you whilst away from home or your local gym.
Nike+ Training Club Mobile App
The Nike+ training club mobile app provides you with plenty of workouts that you can do any time and any place. The exercises work your full body and vary between 15, 30 and 45-minute workouts. You can either do a simple individual workout when you have spare time or there are programs available in the app that encourage you to tone up and get stronger. It’s available on app stores and is a great way to keep fit on the go.
Valside is a handy piece of equipment that was designed by personal trainer Valerie Waters. It’s easily portable and makes lower body exercises such as lunges much easier to complete and less stressful on the body. You’ll be able to utilise your hotel floor to do exercises with this great piece of kit.
Natural Fitness Balance Disc
Using exercise balls is an innovative way to enhance your workouts but due to their size, they can’t always be utilised on the go. This is what makes the Natural Fitness Balance Disc valuable. The travel-size product can lay flat but be inflated to be used as an exercise ball, so space isn’t used unnecessarily but you can still get the most out of your workouts. Whether you’re at home or away, it can help with push-ups, squats and core exercises.
Fitbit is one of the leading brands on the market when it comes to fitness tracking. It fits easily on the wrist whilst looking stylish at the same time. It’s a piece of equipment that you can keep with you every day of the week so it can track your steps and the number of calories that you’ve burned. When it gets to the evening, it also calculates the number of hours that you’ve slept so you can monitor your sleep.
GRID Mini Foam Roller
Once you’ve gone through an intense workout, you can use the GRID mini foam rollers to decrease muscle tension and relax any knots that have built up whilst you were exercising. In comparison to inversion tables, it’s compact and extremely travel-friendly which means travelling issues won’t be a problem. By massaging your muscles, it can reduce recovery time and have you ready to go again when you get back from your trip.
The items in the list are some of the best pieces of on the go equipment about for people that are actively on the go. They’re ideal for travelling and you won’t have to worry about it taking up too much room in your luggage.
