Vacation is no longer an excuse for not staying in shape.

August 15, 2019

But for those looking to avoid letting vacation impede your progress, check out these easy-to-pack items for your next trip.

Something as simple as a foam roller might be all you need. Take Brazyn’s foldable foam roller along with you in almost any bag or suitcase. Exercise gloves are also a must to keep your hands in mint condition while away. Looking for something a little more active? Try the durable DEGOL jump rope.
