Video: Exercising Around The World

How do you stay fit while you travel? The hotel gym? Walking around sightseeing? Unless you’re an adrenaline junkie, you probably don’t put too much thought into exercising while you’re on the road. So this video of blogger Steve Kamb exercising around the world provides a refreshing and practical look at how you can stay active anywhere.

Check out Steve warming up with jumping jacks in Bangkok; jumping rope in Shanghai; pounding out the push-ups at Machu Picchu; and doing vertical push-ups in front of the Guinness factory in Dublin. Yeah, this guy is good. Onward, we see Steve running in Monte Carlo; doing some jaw-dropping pull-ups in Santa Monica, California; and swimming in Puerto Rico.

In all, Steve traveled to 16 countries over 18 months and shot footage of himself exercising in all of them. While Steve’s self-funded, round-the-world trip is impressive, I think the true moral of this story is that there’s no reason you can’t stay fit – or even get fitter – while on vacation. All you need is your body and some spectacular destinations for inspiration.

AquaBells’ Dumbbells: Keep In Shape While On The Road, You Slob!

AquaBellsUnless you’re the kind of traveler who actively engages in lots of climbing, hiking, paddling, or biking, you’re pretty much a fat, lazy slob who’s only looking to meet attractive members of the opposite sex, lay around, check out the scenery, and eat. C’mon, admit it. Why not beef up a bit, so if/when you put the fork down long enough to speak to that Hottie, they respond with something other then a grossed-out “Ewww…”?

AquaBells Dumbbells are portable, collapsible weights for people on the go. Essentially super-heavy-duty plastic bags, when empty, the 26-ounce units fit easily into your carry-on bag. Filled, the weights provide up to 16 pounds of resistance per dumbbell. A $60 set of dumbbells includes handlebars and 8 fillable weights. At the very least, they’ll make excellent doorstops.
