When you’re traveling, it’s tough to maintain your fitness. From business trips to family vacations, being away from your home gym puts a strain on your regular workout regimen. And though some hotels offer top-notch fitness centers, not all do.
Luckily, the solution is simple: supply your own gear and get creative. Sure, you might want to tone your quads, but you can’t fit a leg press into your suitcase. So pack a yoga mat for muscle-building bodyweight exercises — or substitute your normal bench press reps with resistance band exercises.
To make it easy for you, we’ve put together a list of the best travel workout gear—no gym required. If you packed all 10 of these on-the-go essentials, you probably wouldn’t even have room for a toothbrush. So pick and choose wisely—focusing on what works for you.
