For the fitness class junkie, traveling means a forced break from all of the (sweaty) things your go-to studio has to offer. That is, unless you bring it with you.
Hailee Steinfeld knows the obstacles when it comes to staying in your fitness groove on a work trip or a vacation—which is why the in-demand actress and singer packs the perfect portable workout bag while jet-setting. (I’m guessing she got some pointers from her dad, who’s a personal trainer.)
“I try to devote at least 15 minutes a day to getting some sort of physical activity in.”
“My number-one thing, considering my crazy, crazy schedule, is that I try to devote at least 15 minutes a day to getting some sort of physical activity in,” the 20-year-old star says.
According to a recent interview with Byrdie, the Steinfeld revealed just what she packs in her carry-on so that she can do an effective workout even when there’s no gym within a 10-mile radius.
When she’s on the road, these are her absolute essentials: “I have a lot of resistance bands. I have a jump rope. I have some boxing pads and gloves and a foam roller,” she says. “That is so key. I just got a travel-size one, which comes in handy more than I ever thought it would.”
Of course, any boxing aficionado knows that gloves can knock out (sorry, had to) a ton of your bag space—so to save even more room, maybe have a friend hold up those hotel pillows as you punch them with your fist to get your heart rate up and arm muscles working. Efficiency at its best! (And BFF time makes you a whole lot healthier on its own—as long as nobody gets a black eye.)
