Starting My JourneyGym Journey

September is a time for new things, it is time for new classrooms, new schools and whole new routines. It is also time to start your own new routines. Well, for me anyway I need to start working out, no really, I need to start. It has been far to long that I’ve not had a decent workout routine. Well, lucky for me I was sent a Journey Gym to start my workout regimen.

The Journey Gym is a complete total body workout in a portable suitcase, if you will. The Journey Gym allows you to take your gym workout with you wherever you want to go.

Journey Gym

THE JOURNEY GYM is a complete, lightweight, compact and durable universal gym. It is efficient in giving users a total body workout and will allow anyone to use it as their primary source of resistance, cardiovascular, and circuit training. The Journey Gym comes with:

  • 30 resistance bands (five on each side plus ten additional bands) for a customizable resistance system of 5 to 75 pounds per side.
  • One set of adjustable handles so resistance only begins when you are in the correct position.
  • Full set of legs which are used to raise the gym into a stair stepper for a full cardio workout.
  • A workout DVD specifically designed for the gym with a 5 minute set up video, a 10 minute circuit tone workout and a 20 minute circuit strength workout.
  • A free online community at where you are able to create exercise videos, track your activity and nutrition, and share your progress with friends and family.

What Do I Think About This Product?

I was sort of skeptical about this item until it arrived. Once I took it out of the box and opened it up, set it up for my first workout I was impressed with how well put together the Journey Gym is. The rubberized top prevents slipping as you are doing your cardio and comfortable when you lay down for the exercises like the chest press. I’ve done the twenty minute workout three times so far and after doing it two days in a row I certainly felt it in my muscles.

I like that the Journey Gym is so portable. You can take it anywhere that you feel comfortable working out. I personally am not that comfortable working out somewhere that people can see me but I’ll certainly take it out to my backyard. I do enjoy working out outside, the fresh air and all the room I have to move around is great. Maybe when I know the workouts by heart I’ll go and do them on the beach or at the park or something. I have a portable DVD player so I can do the 10 or 20 minute workout anywhere. At home I can put together any workout I’d like by choosing from over 70 exercises at the Journey Gym site. I’ll be doing that soon too to change things up.

I am happy to be able to give away a Journey Gym (a $249 value) to a lucky reader. Yeah you could be out there in your own backyard working out.

  2. I would love to be able to take mine to Water Canyon. It’s my favorite place, and has some great flat spots to workout in.

  3. maybe not the most unusual place, but i would probably take it to the park. of course people would probably stare and wonder what the heck is that weird lady doing lol
    Look at what ciara wrote blog post ..So, Yeah…

  4. Hi Ben…I friended you on facebook and subscribed to your newsletter. I’m not sure if I’m entered yet…a bit confusing to me, but the most unusual place I would take my Journey Gym consists of two places. I’d take it to our local park on “Jazz In The Park” nights and workout under a big tree I go to with my dog Missy tied out on her long leash. Better to be working out then laying on a blanket or sitting on chairs…NEAT. The next is when we go down by the river on the levee…I live in a river town by the Mississippi River. I’d take my Journey Gym there, again with my puppy tied out, and workout while we watch all the beautiful birds that congregate there…and geese…and eagles, watch all the boats and barges go through while working out on my Journey Gym. Now to me that would be AWESOME!!!
