In 2018, you will lose four inches on your waist and dunk a basketball. You will run a marathon and find your abs again. We all made the resolutions, and if you want to keep them this year, you need to make fitness as easy as possible. Portable gear is a good starting point, so you can take your workout with you everywhere. We’ve designed the ultimate go-anywhere gym that lets you work your core, power, agility, and endurance, whether you have a gym or not.
