The World's First Truely Portable Universal Gym. Journey Gym Product Review

I am a mom to 3 little ones and I am constantly busy. Yes, you are probably thinking that is a workout in itself. Well, it is not in my case. I run a home business and I am also a blogger. I spend alot of time sitting on my bottom at a computer...LOL  Needless to say the only thing getting a workout then is my fingers.

I have been on the lookout for some type of workout system that would be quick and easy for myself. I have always been on the slender side until having my son in 2003. I didn't gain a ton of weight with each of my 3 pregnancies, but never lost the weight that I gained. I have struggled since with losing the weight.

I was on the lookout and came across a really cool item called the Journey Gym. After looking through their site I decided to contact them to see if they would be open for a review and they agreed.

Here is a quick overview of the product. This information was provided on the Journey Fitness site.


The journey gym is the world’s first truly portable universal gym. It’s lightweight, compact and portable design allows people to workout whenever and wherever. It removes the most common barrier to maintaining fitness, which is lack of consistency, by allowing you to workout anywhere including your home, your hotel room, your office or even on your back porch. It is designed to be utilized in 5 minute circuits of alternating strength and cardiovascular exercises, known as circuit training, allowing you to fit in a workout whenever you have a moment or are between tasks and consistency can return to your fitness life.


Studies show that a series of four 5 minute exercises in a day is as effective as one 20 minute workout. So, the journey gym is designed to allow for concise and effective exercise circuits to be completed between other daily tasks, projects and moments during your hectic day. Most people find time to fit in work and interactions with others on their personal laptops regardless of how hectic their days are and now they can do the same with exercise with the journey gym. For this it is known as the "fitness laptop" and will revolutionize when and where people workout and how they get fit.


The patented journey gym utilizes a proprietary resistance system which allows for you to have between 5 and 150 lbs. of resistance providing a real strength training workout for your shoulders, arms, chest, back, abdominals, and legs. Then, through the use of retractable legs, the journey gym is a commercial grade stair stepper providing a true cardiovascular workout for your heart and lungs. By performing alternating strength and cardiovascular exercises in one minute intervals, again known as circuit training, the journey gym provides a revolutionary fitness solution for anyone at any level. Health is a journey, so get the journey gym and begin yours today.

I was excited right away to start using it. It comes with a pamplet that includes a booklet and workout video. I decided to set myself a workout schedule. I would do it 3 times a week alternating days. I also decided to do a few different workouts to work out my entire body.

I immediately took it out on my patio and opened it up and put the leg pieces in the desired postions. This will elevate it off of the floor some. I then attached the handles to the desired bands that I decided to use. I do this horizontal working on my arms. I then move the handles to the sides of the platform and then attach them to the desired bands I would like to use there. I then lay on my back and do arm reaches up with the handles. I can really feel it working out my arm and back muscles. I then take both handles and attached them to one of the ends. I then lay on my back and pull the handles over my head as I pull one of my legs up. I then do it again alternating my legs. I can really feel this in my legs, arms, back and stomach areas. I then put the handles down and use the platform to step up and down. This really works out my legs.

This takes me approx. 20-30 minutes each time and I do several reps of each exercise. It is a great workout and I can really feel that it is working.

I also love that when you get down you can attach the handles to the inside and take the legs off and attach them inside too. You can then close the case up and lock it. It then has a handle that you can easily carry it. If you don't like it to be out all the time you can easily place it under your bed or in a closet. Also very easy to take with you on a business trip, vacation etc.

I highly recommend this product and I love the setup of the whole Journey Gym. I love mine!!!
