I’m writing this post to share some of the workout equipment I use when traveling. In fact, I often use these Bodylastics Resistance Bands at home when I workout as well.
If you are looking for a great home workout program, check out my post on P90X3. It’s only 30 minutes per day and combines many different types of exercises in one program.

Bodyelastics has a set that includes resistance bands and a door anchor they sell for a great price. The quality of the Bodyelastics resistance bands is great and I’ve now been using them for about 4 years. I decided on these resistance bands because of the anti-snap chord inside of the resistance bands.
Bodylastics Resistance Bands Anti-snap Feature
Before I purchased these Bodylastics Resistance Bands, I had another set that did not include the anti-snap chord inside. After a few months, the band snapped, and I was lucky not to get injured. It could have hit my face/eye, but I’m glad that did not happen. It just made a loud noise and kind of shocked me when it snapped. I think there are certain exercises where it could be quite dangerous if it snaps, therefore I’m now sold on the Bodyelastics resistance bands with the anti-snap feature. It’s an actual elastic chord inside of the resistance band. If the band were to snap, the resistance band would not fly in your face.
Bodyelastics Door Anchor
When I am out traveling and want to workout in the hotel room, the Bodyelastics set comes with a door anchor. It can be placed in the between the door gap. When you close the door, you can insert the resistance band through it the loop on the door anchor. This makes it possible for you to do various exercises, especially for your back and triceps.
Wear & Tear
I did have to replace the door anchor after a couple of years. That was because I left the door anchor on year round in my home since I used it on a weekly basis. When I opened and closed the door, it would wear and tear on the material. But when traveling, you will only leave the door anchor on the door when you are working out. It did last about two years, which I think is still pretty good for that type of use. You can find the Bodylastics Resistance Bands and Door Anchor here on Amazon.
