Jump Rope

A little fun fact for you: Jump roping is scientifically proven again and again to be one of the most effective cardio exercises out there. It’s incredible for cardiovascular health, burning calories — and for all my runners out there, it’s better for your knees than pounding the pavement.

Fitness Bands

Fitness bands are one of the most underrated, affordable fitness tools on the market. They are awesome for travel and easy to throw in your gym bag or suitcase — which is why they land on our list.

Gliders are another underutilized piece of travel workout equipment. If you have ever performed lunges, glute bridges, or planks; you’ll understand how much harder they can get just by adding gliders.

Don’t Forget Your Travel Workout Equipment

The best part about gliders, aside from the fact that they are light, thin, and portable: the affordable pricing. They usually run between $10-$20, which is nowhere near that of in-home fancy gym equipment. All you need is a slick floor or carpet, and you can create a very challenging and effective workout that will burn calories faster than your traditional movements.
