To prevent any long-term damage on your joints, make sure to invest in a good pair and they’ll go a long way.

Albeit the comfort of my own shower, most of the time I work out before work and therefore have to use the facilities onsite.

I love, love, love toiletries – make sure to get miniature sizes, otherwise your gym bag will get very heavy over time. It also gives you an excuse to try new products or simply collect the toiletries from your hotel stays. 2-in-1 products are very handy as well!
