What's In My Bag? Working Out on the Road

It’s tough to keep a workout routine when you’re traveling.  Time zone changes, long flights, late meetings & other obligations can throw your workout routine off track.  But it’s not as difficult as you might think to squeeze in a workout.  Even if the hotel gym is scary or lacking, get yourself outside for a run, walk to your destination instead of taking a cab, or get in a workout in your room! 

I often carry a few packable items to help supplement what’s in the hotel fitness center, or to enable a decent in-room workout.  As part of my What's In My Bag series, here are my favorites:

TRX 

I love the TRX Suspension kit.  I use it at home and on the road.  There are TONS of different exercises you can do with it.   This kit also comes with a door anchor to set up in your room.  Check out the TRX website & Pinterest for workouts! 

 

JUMP ROPE 

Jumping rope is an easy workout that will make you work up a sweat in a short amount of time.  As a bonus, this jump rope won’t take up much space in your bag!   

RESISTANCE BANDS

This is a great set of resistance bands.  They also come with a door anchor and ankle strap.  If the TRX is a little too pricey for you, this may be a good option.  You’ll be amazed at what a good workout you can get with them! 

 

 

 

 

EXERCISE BANDS

I fell in love with these bands while working with my trainer.  They make the simplest exercises a little tougher, and a little more effective.  This set is really small, it comes in different resistance levels, and an Ebook full of exercises.  These would be great if you’re lacking a gym, and need to workout in your room! 

 

 

 

RUNNING SHOES 

I know you probably like  to pack light.  However, I always make sure to bring my running shoes with me.  If I’ve got them along, I can always find 30 minutes to get out and run or walk.  If the weather is bad, I often run up and down the stairs in my hotel.  If you're unfamiliar with the area around your hotel, Google the local running groups in the area- they may even have a weekly run you can join.


Staying healthy on the road isn't always easy, but if you are prepared, you have less chance of making excuses!  I hope you find some of these items useful.  I'd love to hear more about how you stay healthy on the road!
