Ever made the excuse “I’m on holidays, I can’t exercise”, or “My hotel doesn’t have a gym”. Well you won’t ever need to use these excuses again as we have come up with this list of travel friendly pieces of workout equipment.
It can be tricky to fit in a workout when travelling, especially if travelling for work and there are long days of meetings, conferences etc. Being away from home can often cause people’s healthy habits to get slightly derailed.
Top 5 Travel Workout Essentials
1. Garmin Watch
Using an activity tracker while away is a great tool to ensure you are getting in enough movement during the day. Depending on the type of holiday you are going on, sightseeing holidays can rack up thousands of steps, whereas a beach/sun holiday may be slightly inactive but the beauty of this is that it will encourage you to get up and move around, going for short walks here and there. Use it as a way of seeing your surroundings, by going for a sunset beach walk or a hike in the local mountains. To see the full selection of Garmin watches click here.
