A Most Relaxing Vacation Includes Working Out For Best Results


For most of us vacations mean going to a place separate from our homes, sleeping in, eating out, and generally taking a break from our more structured lives.  However, the average 4 days business trip, or vacation leads to up to 5 lbs. of gained weight.  This is of course heavily due to how sedentary we tend to be on vacation and because of the increase in calories we take in as well.

If you really want to return from a vacation rested, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle life then the experts suggest you workout while on vacation.  The great thing about this is that you have more time on vacation than at any other time.  In turn, the #1 reason people don't regularly exercise, which is due to lack of time, is gone.  This coupled with the fact the journey gym allows for you to workout literally anywhere, you can truly improve your relaxation levels by exercising while on vacation.

Be Truly Inspired By journey gym Customer Kalia Hollander


This is Kaila Hollander and she is purely inspiring.   She has been in a wheelchair for a number of years and has watched our amazing loyal customer, Rabbi Zvi Hollander, and their daughter get in great shape on the journey gym over the past many months.   In turn, she wanted to start utilizing it for herself.  The Rabbi asked if we had any ideas on how she could use it and in turn they removed the legs and started with upper body exercises.  

Now, even with limited mobility, the journey gym is providing strength training to Kaila, right in the comfort of her own home.  This is truly amazing and inspiring.  We love this.  You are awesome Kaila.  Thank you for having the strength to share your journey with us.

Getting Fit As A Group Of Neighbors In Sandpoint, Idaho


We recently had a group of families, all of whom live in the same rural neighborhood in Sandpoint, Idaho, all order their journey gyms in an effort to get fit as a community.  They had been dealing with a number of health issues amongst a very close group of friends and family, and in turn they reached out to journey gym to help improve their health.

So, more than 10 individuals started in late May on their collective 70 Day Challenge.  They are all working out to the daily emails received from journey gym, are keeping eachother motivated, and are ultimately keeping one another accountable.  The research is clear, that when there is a group of friends, or peers, aware of your goals, you are more likely to reach those goals as those individuals keep you accountable.

After more than four years of continual work, we as journey gym, have finally received our 4th issued U.S. patent around the journey gym portable universal gym, its platform, its design, and its handles.
