How to Bring Your Healthy Habits with You on Vacation

With this gear, you don’t have to leave behind your vitamins, supplements and favorite smoothie recipes.

July 18, 2019

Vacation is a time to relax and a break from everyday life, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to stop your healthiest habits. When packing for your next big getaway, consider adding some of these items to your luggage to keep yourself fit and healthy.

Keep up to date with your vitamins and/or medicine with a convenient pill organizer that lets you separate doses for shorter trips. If you’re tracking your weight progress, there’s a mini, portable scale for that. Take this lightweight, transportable yoga mat by YOGO to keep up with your child’s pose. Feeling stiff? Bring this morphing foam roller that can flatten for ease of travel.

No matter your health goals and needs, there’s an item here for you.

Portable Blender

Oberly Portable Blender

Take the fun of blending with you wherever you go. Amazon

Bring the convenience of a blender for your fitness and health needs with Oberly’s portable blender. This one-button blender is made from high-quality BPA-free and food-grade materials. On the inside, there is a durable six-point 304 stainless-steel bender blade. It’s battery-operated and can produce 10 to 12 cups per charge, all while fitting right into your gym bag.

This blender can crush ice, frozen fruits, seeds and vegetables. It comes only in pink.

Collapsible Bowl

Vukayo Collapsible Bowl

You never know when you’re going to need a bowl. Amazon

Break out the Vulkayo collapsible bowl whenever for whatever immediate meal you need. Its thick walls, made from BPA-free, reusable food-grade silicone, insulate heat and can be transported easily enough for use anywhere outside your own home (and in it, too). This bowl can also withstand extreme temperatures on both sides of the spectrum: It can take temperatures from -40°F to 446°F.


Vulkayo’s bowl comes in either a turquoise blue or gray.

Shaker bottle

BlenderBottle 20-ounce Shaker

Home or away, the classic shaker bottle with a spring ball is a must-have for maintaining your fitness and health routines. Amazon

You’ve seen these shaker bottles before, and you’ve probably used one. If you don’t have one, yet, pick one up before your next vacation to keep up with your health routine.

Measure up to 12 ounces in your BlenderBottle shaker (though, it can hold up to 20 ounces). The screw-on lid assures no leakage while the wide opening of the cup helps mitigate spillage when adding protein or other supplements. This shaker bottle is BPA- and phthalate-free and dishwasher-safe.

Pill Box

Auvon iMedassist Weekly Pill Box

Keep up with your vitamins and supplements while on vacation. Amazon

Whether for health supplements or medicine, a pill organizer is a must-have for anyone trying to maintain their routine while away from the comfort of their own home. In this Auvon pill organizer, you can carry a week’s worth of pills and detach the days you’ll need for a trip.

The container is made of BPA-free plastic. Each dosage container is large enough for multiple pill schedules, if necessary.

Bathroom Scale

NewlineNY Mini Travel Bathroom Scale

Track your progress wherever you go. Amazon

Don’t let a vacation stop you from keeping up with your weight progress. Take NewlineNY’s mini travel scale to get an update on your poundage wherever you are.


The small scale has a 400-pound capacity and measures in 0.2-pound increments. A button on the underside allows you to change the units. This scale weighs just over two pounds.

Travel Yoga Mat

YOGO Ultralight Travel Yoga Mat

A true yogi takes yoga with him or her wherever they go. Amazon

Take Downward Dog and Warrior 2 with you wherever you go with YOGO’s ultralight travel yoga mat. This is perfect for travel, as the mat comes with a built-in handle. It’s also environmentally friendly: This yoga mat is made with sustainably harvested tree rubber and does not contain PVC, EPA, PER, PU or TPE.

On the infrequent occasion you need to wash the mat, simply hang the mat by its attached straps, rinse or wash in the shower, and then let it air-dry.

Each purchase helps YOGO provide a food-bearing tree and agriculture training for a disadvantaged family. This mat comes in six different colors.

Perfect Pushup Elite

Perfect Fitness Perfect Pushup Elite

Get a quick pump in anywhere. Amazon

Keep your upper body looking as good as it did before you started your vacation with Perfect Fitness’ Perfect Pushup Elite. They’re designed to slightly rotate so that you engage your muscles more, focusing on strength and definition in your chest, abs, back, shoulders and arms.

For those looking for an extra challenge, don’t be afraid to add a weight vest (if there happens to be one around your hotel gym); the Perfect Pushup Elite can withstand up to 400 pounds.

Foam Roller

Brazyn Morph Bravo Foam Roller

Feeling tight? Make sure you have this travel-convenient foam roller with you. Amazon

There’s really no convenient way to carry a regular foam roller. With Brazyn’s morphing foam roller, however, now there is. This item was made for travel convenience, as it can expand to a 14.5-inch-long, high-quality foam roller and can flatten to less than two inches thick for packing. It weighs about 1.5 pounds and has a diameter of five inches. Despite its small size, this foam roller can withstand up to 350 pounds.

This morphing foam roller is made with bamboo and recyclable aluminum. It is available in either sunset orange or midnight blue.

Exercise Bands

Fit Simplify Resistance Loop Exercise Bands

You don’t need weights to own a workout while on vacation. Amazon

Whether you’re stretching, rehabbing or working out, the Fit Simplify resistance loops have you covered. These 12 x 2-inch bands are made completely of natural latex and free of TPE. Each of the five bands that come with each purchase vary in resistance.

Additionally, Fit Simplify will also send a complimentary instruction guide and a 41-page e-book with exercises and demonstrations.
