Journey Gym Product Description

The Journey Gym is a convenient, lightweight, tool box that holds your portal gym.  It consists of 30 resistance bands, 5 attached to each side of the tool box (Journey Gym case) and then 10 additional bands.

Con’s

  • Limited resistance for certain directions
  • Workouts that come with it are minimal
  • Should not replace your fitness routine
  • Time to adjust weight/bands
  • Expensive

What is the tool box?  Well its not actually a tool box per say, but it certainly looks like one.  It is a convenient carrying case.  More importantly, the Journey Gym case is the stability point for the resistance bands.  The Journey Gym case also doubles as a platform for doing certain excersies, particularly step ups for cardio workouts or potentially squats with the bands.

One of the best parts about the Journey Gym is that it only weighs 16.6 lbs.  Everything you potentially need for a quick strength or cardio workout and it only weighs 16.6 lbs.  That being said, I would only recommend the Journey Gym to people that travel quite a bit or for people that tend to get out of their workout routine when they leave for a weekend.

In my opinion, I wouldn’t use the Journey Gym as my home gym.  It doesn’t provide enough resistance for a lot of major muscle groups.  More fit people are not going to get a workout doing squats or bench press with the Journey Gym, but then again if you’re on the run, its better than nothing and certainly convenient.

Who should purchase the Journey Gym?

If you travel for work, the Journey Gym is a great tool for you.  If you travel a lot on weekends and get out of your fitness routine, then the Journey Gym is also for you.  If you work a 9-5 in the office every day and are home most of the time, then I think you would benefit more from other home gym products (see below).

The Journey Gym should not replace your everyday fitness routine.  The workouts that come with the Journey Gym are beginner workouts although they scale to all fitness levels (i.e. if you’re willing to do a ton of reps).  That being said, the Journey Gym Portable Gym is extremely convenient and a great fit for several situations.

The best part about the Journey Gym is the replay value.  People make their own workouts on the Journey Gym website and you’ll always have a variety of workouts to choose from.

For you, if convenience trumps workout complexity, then definitely purchase the Journey Gym.

  2. Attempted to purchase this system. After 12 days I have been unable to get ahold of anyone to find out when I will receive it. I have called (one number is out of service), text, email and used their contact me page. The only time we got a response is when my husband said he wanted to buy one. When he replied to that response inquiring when I would be receiving mine we never heard back again. They have already charged my credit card, anyone else have this experience?
