Some of us need our exercise wherever we can take it. Busy schedules mean that the gym may always be a little too far away, and we need to have the workout equipment on us. Maybe we’re stuck at home and we don’t have a lot of room to exercise – having workout equipment that has a small footprint in a small apartment, house, or exercise room can be perfect for getting a full workout in. Here are five products worth checking out if you need a gym on the go.
Stationary and Mobile
Stationary bikes are supposed to stay in one place, generally, but since you do the transporting, this portable stationary bike still counts. It takes up about the same amount of room as a good-sized office chair and will give you the full workout. It’s also small enough that you can hide it under a desk or throw it in the closet when you’re done with it.
Sorry for the Convenience
We at DickPrint have long been advocates for getting your steps in. What better way to do that than with these portable stair climbers? Perfect not just for a quick workout, but also convenient for those working at standing desks who don’t have time to head to the stairwell.
This portable puncher does require an existing loop or a place that doesn’t mind you drilling a hole in their ceiling. It is designed to take a good beating wherever you can hang it up, and its weighted base helps you keep it taught and ready for training.
If you’ve seen our guide to men’s athleisure wear, you’ve seen some solid ideas for clothes to wear while relaxing while also being prepared for a sudden burst of energy that requires you to run somewhere. Rarely do we run into what is essentially a wardrobe item that is also the exercise device itself. Enter MonkeyFeet, which are essentially a pair of shoes with weights built in. They strap on like snowboard or ski boots, and they are for the extreme leg exercise lover. They are not likely great if you have someone on the floor below who hates noise.
Bring the Gym with You
With this folding weight bench, you can do bench presses anywhere. Anywhere you can find weights, that is. Though, if you really want to challenge yourself, you’ll keep a keen eye for how much things weight and just start measuring your athletic ability in things you can lift, versus pounds you can press. One person, for instance, sounds much more impressive than a couple hundred pounds of dumbbells.
You need to get your exercise in wherever you can, and subscriptions to gyms are rarely worth what you pay. Most people don’t have the time, and half the time no one is cleaning off the equipment. Why not opt for equipment you can clean yourself, and which stays out of sight when you’re not in the mood for a workout?
