Last summer, I went to Belize and Guatemala for three weeks with a 40 L backpack. I was in off-season, so going to a gym every day wasn’t as crucial, but I still packed my resistance bands with me. The shorter ones didn’t take up too much room, but I took the longer resistance bands too – the entire set – with me, and that was almost easily a third of my pack space. I have a TRX that I love using at home, but it’s got a whole mess of cables and doesn’t pack very neatly.
So when I heard about monkii, I got very excited as I’m planning a week-long road trip in a part of the States where gym access isn’t guaranteed. Sometimes traveling means being a bit flexible, and you just have to do the best you can with what you have.
Look at how pretty this is:
I wish I had known about it last summer – it packs incredibly light and compact, it can be set up pretty much anywhere (not just on doors), and even has a free app. The app has entire workout plans and exercise demonstrations, so you know if you’re doing them with the proper form.
