The Ultimate Must-Have Travel Essentials For Active Women
If you’re an active woman then there’s no doubt you’ll want to exercise and get involved in adventure when travelling. That might involve hiking, biking, yoga, swimming and even more extreme activities like paragliding and skydiving. Whatever the trip, travel essentials for active women are always a good idea. Bring at least one active outfit for any kind of situation.
No matter what you’re doing you’ll need activewear that’s comfortable and practical but most importantly something you feel sassy and confident in. Something that, simply put, makes you feel one hundred bucks.
As someone who is very active during my travels, whether it’s during a city break or yoga retreat, I know the importance of having great looking activewear and accessories that pack light. I mean, there are many things that have to fit in that suitcase or backpack right, so the smaller everything can pack down the better. Pack just these few essentials and you won’t notice the amount of space they take up in your bag. You’ll also be good to go for any workout or adventure that awaits.
Resistance bands are perfect for working out when travelling. They are easy to use and they create a lot more resistance than doing just bodyweight exercises. When used well and with the correct resistance they can really be effective. Each set of resistance bands includes many different weight equivalents, perfect for you to adapt any workout. They pack down so small that you can just slip it down the side of your bag.
Long, tight, comfortable and flattering yoga pants are a girl’s best friends, let’s be honest. I pretty much live in these in the winter and on most days when travelling when the situations need something lighter and more flexible than jeans. They are perfect for pretty much every travel situation from chilling at your hotel to trekking to working out and sitting comfortably on flights.

For hotter climates one of the most important travel essentials for women are shorts. You’ll definitely want some shorts instead of leggings, just in case especially for working out. I find that shorts give you complete freedom of movement and can be less restrictive and lighter.

A fantastic fitting and comfortable sports bra lies at the core of most active women’s travel essentials. Just like with leggings, a great sports bra is both a necessity and incredibly versatile. Wear it not just for working out but pretty much anywhere you wish. Wear it alone as a crop top or underneath a t-shirt or sweater.

COMPACT TRAINING SHOES
Your favourite pair of training shoes is definitely worth packing, not just for working out. Running shoes are often bulky and can take up a lot of space in your luggage. For this reason, I use training specific shoes such as the Nike Free or Nike Training models or if you’re a runner make sure you travel in your running shoes to have more space in your luggage. Nike Free feels like your training barefoot and their soles are really bendable and flexible meaning you can easily squeeze them into your luggage. They are ridiculously comfortable and supportive too. There are many models and styles to choose from.
Even though there is plenty more stuff you can bring with you when travelling to make your workouts more variable, I would consider the above the minimum. I travel with just the above and I never feel limited in any way. Bodyweight workouts and resistant band training keep me at my best and because they are super low impact you can even try them barefoot on the beach!
Other workout based products you could consider adding to your luggage if you have extra space is a yoga mat and workout/beach towel.
