Travel tip # 1 : Stay fit when you travel (or do yoga) with resistance bands


Building and maintaining a workout routine, whether you’re starting out or starting again, can seem a bit daunting. So when you actually get the hang of it, a vacation can disrupt your flow and kill your motivation. Although you might stuff your sneakers and some exercise clothes in your luggage “just in case” you find a gym or a good running route, you might waver in your resolve. Add airplane food to the mix, jet lag and a hectic schedule and you’re back to square one.

Introducing resistance bands — our newest travel and life essential. Resistance bands are a cheap way to exercise, you can use them for a full body workout (they offer tension between 15 and 200 lb!) and they don’t take any packing capital — just slip them in your carry-on and you’re ready to go. Best of all, you can re-use them when you get home, when you hit the gym as well as in your yoga practice.
