Staying healthy while traveling can prove challenging when you don’t have all the equipment you’re used to relying on at home. Thankfully, companies know how important your well-being is, and have developed products to keep you fit, hydrated, nourished, pain-free, and comfortable no matter where your feet are planted. 

From a portable blender for making delicious smoothies to thoughtfully-designed fitness equipment and apparel, these gadgets for travelers will make living well a priority as you traverse the globe. 

Portable blender

The perfect companion for staying healthy while traveling, the Ninja Blast Portable Blender is a mighty machine packed with power and high-performance features. The cordless, portable design allows you to blend on the go with ease—whether you’re whipping up a refreshing smoothie or a post-workout protein shake. The ribbed vessel creates a powerful vortex, and the durable stainless steel blade assembly easily breaks down ice and frozen ingredients, so you can trust your drinks will be blended to perfection in record time. The blender’s 18-ounce BPA-free vessel is easy to clean with a self-clean cycle, while the cordless, leak-proof design features a long-lasting battery that can blend up to 15 times on a single charge.

Concentrated hydration packs are one of the simplest, surefire ways to stay on top of your hydration—especially when traveling. The patented formula of DripDrop delivers three times the electrolytes of leading sports drinks on the market, while having half the amount of sugar. Plus, you can pour a pack right into your new portable Ninja blender while preparing your healthy drink of choice.

Relieve knots from sitting on a plane for hours or sore muscles from working out with a massage gun. Rather than getting a smaller version to travel with, which can sacrifice the machine’s power, opt for this foldable option. The device comes with five changeable heads for precise muscle targeting.

Eye mask and earplugs

Sleep is an essential part of staying healthy and fit both at home and on the go. But between planes, layovers, and noisy hotels, it can be challenging to clock some solid shut-eye. In times like these, block it out and tune it out. This set includes a sleep mask with an ergonomic 3D contoured design for ultimate comfort with 100 percent light blockage, along with disposable earplugs and a carrying case.
