Vacation equipment (what would you take)

So If you were to go on vacations and if you are like me, meaning that Crossfit is in your mind even if you take a vacation, you know you can't take your Kettle bells, your bar and plates because they are heavy and you have to pay fees for it but, there is equipment that you take, What equipment do you take with you and why?

1) Rings (2 Pairs) to do Muscle ups maybe once or twice during vacations and what ever involves rings
2) Speed ropes - to do double unders.
3) The kettle Stack adjustable KB (no plates)- there is always someone that has regular standard weights so you can put them in the Kettle stack
4) All my shirts that has a Crossfit logo on it, this one just because.
5) A pair of Oly Shoes - just in case I find someone with a bar doing bench presses, Iíll take their bar with 135 or more and put it over head, that's when they ask me, how the heck I can do that? And then that's when you say Crossfit and got them thinking how did he do that.
6) A roll of tape- just because.
7) Running shoes- very necessary.

My L-1 manual on digits with my Lap top, just in case

SANTI

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

I just did this for Thanksgiving and space was limited in the car with all our kids and bags and such. I took my rings (kids like to swing on them too when waiting for dinner, etc ), a 25lb med ball, speed rope and 1.5pd kettlebell. I knew I wouldn't be able to hit a gym while I was there and I felt like that was enough to tide me over until I got home.

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

Maybe instead of all that packing, you could pay a day pass to a globo and improvise? I'm sure it would depend on where youre going and for how long... but when I went to Vegas a while back I went to the local globo and just made some of my own WODs...

500m Row
15 burpees
5 rds for time

then the next day I did:
5 bar dips
5 SDHPs @ 95lbs
5 strict pull ups
5 HSPU's
[three 5min AMRAPs w/ 90sec rest between ea]

but

that's not a lot to pack, you think? also, I always take my Duffle bag, all that stuff above takes less than 1/4 of the total space, Good for you though if you want to go to Globo gym though. I rather check the affiliates in the area of where I am going though and maybe buy a shirt from them, that's just me. Although when i go on vacations chances are that there are no affiliates near the area of where I will go though.

the WODs that you did seems nice though.

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

I was just thinking about this. I'm going to visit my brother in Guatamala over Christmas and I'm wondering what to take (no possibility of a globo or affiliate in the area). I will take my speed rope and was debating over some rings. I was thinking a KB would be over the top.

HSPU's and pistols aren't some of my strengths so I will work on those.

HAHA! I feel you, next week I am going to Puerto Rico and the nearest affiliate is more than an hour away, I know some of my friends have home made weights with cement (old school) and a couple of trees in which I could hang the rings and also do pull ups. I am very excited about putting my friends from back home to workout with me, last time I went home I have 3 of them do GI jane with me, none of them finished or even made it half way though, I got the whole thing done in about 10 minutes, so everytime i go home now, they know it is game time for workouts. this time my plan is to teach them how to do Thrusters and do a scale vesion of Fran for them with whatever equipment i can find and just workout while I am there.

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

I'm going out to the desert, so there's not even a tree branch to hang rings from. There's a globo there but I don't really want to spend $10 per visit. I'm debating just making it my "rest week".

have two desert eagles hover above you w/the ring straps clutched in their talons.

Re: Vacation equipment (what would you take)

On vacation trips, I either bring nothing and rest or just a rope.
