One of the things that is really difficult when travelling around the world for SUP Races is to keep up with your training routine, you can’t travel with dumbells, might not have access to a gyms unless you choose a ***** start hotel. That’s why we love Annabel Andersons’ Bodyweight exercises so much. 

Another great way to stay in shape on the go is TRX Training. There are 2 systems (the suspension trainer is better for travelling)


The TRX Suspension Trainer is the original, best-in-class workout system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform hundreds of exercises. You’re in control of how much you want to challenge yourself on each exercise – because you can simply adjust your body position to add or decrease resistance.
