The days of the traditional road warrior are pretty much on hold as companies curtail business travel during the pandemic. But people, nonetheless, are starting to venture out a bit on trips for business and pleasure. And when they do, many want or need to find new ways to work out given that private or hotel gyms are currently restricted or still shut down completely. Ditto for people still working remotely who can’t for whatever reason go to a gym right now. WellWell is here to help out. We’ve identified eight different portable workout products that are great for road warriors or anyone looking to break a sweat at home without taking up too much room.
The BodyBoss 2.0 offers a complete customizable resistance training system that’s great for the home or road. Each resistance band provides roughly 30 pounds of pressure at its normal length, but it can be adjusted to increase resistance up to 70-80 pounds per band. The VectorFit Base Platform has been stress tested to withstand up to 500 pounds of force.
FlexPacks through OYO Personal Gym are highly portable, take up almost no space and offer an alternative to free weights and resistance bands. FlexPacks’ snap-on adjustments provide up to 25 pounds of resistance, although it feels like more because there is no momentum gains that are associated with free-weights. The OYO Gym only weighs a couple of pounds and folds up to go anywhere.
