Going on a run is always a valid option for exercising when traveling, either out on a trail, in a local park, or around a track at the local college or around the city.

Wear your Fitbit while in the airport before your flight leaves and set a goal for the number of steps you want to reach, or use it while using your other travel exercise equipment to keep track of your activity.

12. MRM Egg White Protein

When traveling it can be tough to get all of your necessary meals in throughout the day, with is very important to muscle recovery, that's why a quality protein powder can be an essential addition to your carry-on bag.

Egg white protein is always my go-to choice for protein powders, I have a dairy allergy so I cannot use whey protein and I am not a huge fan of plant proteins. The MRM Egg White Protein is one of the higher quality proteins on the market.

13. BODYWEIGHT Exercise Cards

Not always do you need fancy equipment and watch countless youtube videos to have a great workout that really works.

These cards are small, lightweight and are perfect for a carry-on bag or in your regular luggage.

14. Valourgo Collapsible Water Bottle

Hydration is key! Regardless of what your fitness/health goals are, you must consume an adequate amount of water. Bringing a normal water bottle with you during travels can be difficult because they may take up too much space, this is unfortunate because when you carry a water bottle with you the amount of water you consume is far higher than if you do not carry one.

This Valourgo Collapsible Water Bottle is the perfect solution to water bottles taking up too much space during travels. It can collapse to nearly half of its original size to save as much space as possible. It is BPA free and is made out of food grade silicone. This is the perfect water bottle to fit in your backpack, travel bag, or luggage.
