The last time our boyfriend caught us in a hotel room with a “personal trainer,” that was the end of our gym membership. Permanently.
So we’ve had to come up with creative ways to keep in shape. We tried dead-lifting paint cans, which seemed to work wonders for Bette Midler in Ruthless People. But they just gave us calluses on our freakishly supple palms.
Jogging was too boring. Using the monkey bars at the elementary school felt too creepy. And pushups were just plain difficult.
But now, we have a secret fitness weapon called FitKit that has everything we need to get a great full-body workout, whether we’re at home or on the road. (Because everyone knows the Motel 6 fitness centers are seriously lacking in amenities.)
The FitKit Travel pack comes with an exercise band, a resistance tube, a jump rope and a stability attachment all in a handy, lightweight case. There’s even a pedometer to keep track of how many steps you make in a day. Sure, it’s a simple collection of tools, but the convenience makes it ideal. The kit includes travel-specific exercises, nutrition tips for healthy eating out of town and, most importantly, access to their online library of exercise tips and videos, including some from FitKit co-founder and fitness professional Amie Hoff.
So even if your travels include unlimited access to the all-you-can-eat midnight buffet, 24-hour room service, or a make-your-own-waffle bar, the FitKit Travel can help keep your Greek god-like physique in tip-top shape year-round.
Go ahead, eat the chocolate on the pillow. Just drop and give us 50 crunches as penance.
