My husband and I are both active people. We grew up playing a variety of sports and enjoy staying in shape. The problem is we have a hard time fitting a workout into our busy schedule. For me it’s always a battle between what I need to get done and what I want to get done. As a mom of three kids, there just never seems to be enough time in the day. It’s easy to come up with excuses, but I know working out needs to be a priority.
Do you have a hard time fitting a workout into your busy schedule? Let’s face it — who doesn’t?!
Thankfully, we recently discovered Journey Gym, the world’s first truly portable universal gym. It’s lightweight, compact and portable design allows people to workout whenever and wherever. It removes the most common barrier to maintaining fitness, which is lack of consistency, by allowing you to workout anywhere including your home, your hotel room, your office or even on your back porch. It is designed to be utilized in 5 minute circuits of alternating strength and cardiovascular exercises, known as circuit training, allowing you to fit in a workout whenever you have a moment or are between tasks and consistency can return to your fitness life.
The Journey Gym comes with:
- 30 resistance bands (five on each side plus ten additional bands) for a customizable resistance system of 5 to 75 pounds per side.
- One set of adjustable handles so resistance only begins when you are in the correct position.
- Full set of legs which are used to raise the gym into a stair stepper for a full cardio workout.
- A workout DVD specifically designed for the gym with a 5 minute set up video, a 10 minute circuit tone workout and a 20 minute circuit strength workout.
- An online community at www.healthisajourney.com where you are able to create exercise videos, track your activity and nutrition, and share your progress with friends and family.
How Does the Journey Gym Work?
Studies show that a series of four 5 minute exercises in a day is as effective as one 20 minute workout. So, the journey gym is designed to allow for concise and effective exercise circuits to be completed between other daily tasks, projects and moments during your hectic day. Most people find time to fit in work and interactions with others on their personal laptops regardless of how hectic their days are and now they can do the same with exercise with the journey gym. For this it is known as the ”fitness laptop” and will revolutionize when and where people workout and how they get fit.

My husband and I are both loving the Journey Gym. It’s easy to set up, easy to use, and easy to store. It’s versatile in that both of us can use it and get a great workout, since the bands offer different degrees of resistance. My husband likes to create his own routines, while I prefer to use the workout DVD that comes with the gym. I also have the ChaLEAN Extreme workout DVDs from BeachBody and the Journey Gym is perfect for them, since ChaLEAN Extreme requires weights or resistance bands to complete the exercises. In the past I was using single resistance bands, and it was such a pain to have to switch them out between exercises. With the Journey Gym, I have all of my bands in one place, plus I have the stair stepper for added cardio.
If you think resistance bands won’t give you a good workout, then think again. My muscles have never felt more engaged and sore! I can already see more muscle definition in my arms after just a few weeks of use.
I highly recommend the Journey Gym if you travel, have a busy schedule, or simply have a hard time fitting a workout into your schedule. It’s a well-made gym that you will be able to use for a long time!
