Trust us, we understand the sanctity of your home gym. But for almost all of us, there will be times—for work, for familial obligations, or otherwise—when we simply can’t get there. After a few days of inactivity, one can often get pretty irritable and frustrated if they don’t get a decent workout in. However, there are ways to ensure that you’ll always be able to get a pretty good sweat going regardless of where you are. 

1. Carry a training bag full of tools—bands, Fat Gripz, a jump rope, and an ab wheel—so you can work out in a small space or an ill-equipped gym.
