Portable Exercise Equipment Options



With today’s busy lifestyles, people are finding it more and more difficult setting aside time to go to the gym and exercise. Even children these days are not engaging in much physical activity. Instead of going outside to play with friends, they are staying indoors to play video games or surf the internet. Those families who are health conscious are finding new ways to eat healthily on the go and even finding time for routine exercise. One of the ways they have done this is by investing in portable exercise equipment.

New technology has not only allowed for smaller computers and electronics, but it has also brought about smaller, lighter, and portable exercise equipment. Gone are the days when families needed lots of money and extra space in their houses for a home gym. Nowadays, consumers can buy equipment that is relatively inexpensive, and can fold, tuck, and collapse for easy portability and storage (in closets, under beds, or in the garage). Listed below are some of the most recent and popular portable equipments on the market.

• Rowing Machine
• Mini Exercise Bike
• Mini Stair Stepper
• Chuck Norris’s Total Gym
• Ab Circle Pro

Even the Bow Flex gyms are being made smaller to fit in just a corner of the house. If you are on an even tighter budget and you would like to start exercising at home, you can purchase equipment like a hula hoop or a mini mat for stretching and yoga exercises.

These days, a record number of people are traveling for business and pleasure. Many hotels have small gyms that are open to their patrons for use. If you prefer doing exercises in the privacy of your room, or you don’t want to run the risk of your hotel not having a gym, these equipment options are small enough to put in a suitcase:

• Contour Abs
• Push-up Bars
• Tube Resistance Bands (i.e. Bodylastics, Versa Stick, and Power System Versa)

With these new, convenient equipments, there is no excuse for people to not find a way to fit exercise into their lives. No matter what type of lifestyle people lead or the size of their budget, there is a machine that is right for each one of them.
