Travel much? If so, you might find it especially challenging to get to the gym. Either time becomes an issue or the hotel’s facilities are an issue. Either way, you can squeeze fitness into your travel schedule with a little extra planning and some especially easy to pack equipment.
Recently, I came across the TRX Suspension Training System. Hard to believe, but you can do 100s of exercises using nothing more than a single anchor point and suspension straps. Here are the details:
What it is: Suspension Training® is a revolutionary method of leveraged bodyweight exercise. Designed by Navy Seal and founder of Fitness Anywhere, the easy-to-carry-anywhere, portable TRX® Suspension Trainer allows you to safely perform hundreds of exercises that build power, strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and prevent injuries, all at the intensity you choose. Apparently, this system is utilized by military, which implies that even the toughest, most in-shape individuals get a good workout from TRX.
Lightweight: The TRX® weighs less than 2 pounds making it especially easy to pack
Packability: There are no rigid pieces that make it difficult to squeeze or throw into your suitcase.
Setup: To set TRX up requires no more than a few minutes and a strong anchor point situated overhead (higher than your head-height).
Workout Versatility: The TRX is a total-body conditioning system, which allows you to workout all muscle groups. It can also be modified for all different user levels.
Drawbacks: You may have a difficult time finding a strong enough anchor point that will also work in a hotel room. Although some exercises can be done to get your heart rate up to a cardio level, the system is not meant for long stretches of cardio.
