About

SHOULD YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS SUFFER WHEN YOU TRAVEL?

For many of us, travel is a necessary component of doing business in the modern world. However, not only do long-haul flights and other extended journeys take their toll on our bodies and disrupt our momentum, often it is difficult in unfamiliar destinations both to find suitable exercise facilities to keep you at the top of your game physically and to find time for working out amid hectic meeting and other schedules.

DO YOU RETURN FROM TRAVELLING FEELING TIRED & LETHARGIC? 

DO YOU VOW TO RETURN TO THE GYM AS SOON AS POSSIBLE? 

OR DO YOU RETURN JUST FEELING STIFF AND SORE?

Now imagine those problems being compounded by major back surgery, aggravating the normal discomfort of lengthy travel and requiring the equipment and facilities available to perform daily rehabilitation exercise.

That's exactly what happened to Fitness Traveller founder Nick Hogendijk.

WHY FITNESS TRAVELLER?

Having returned to work after a four month rehabilitation, Nick soon discovered that frequent travel for his job was having a negative impact on his rehabilitation, health and overall fitness.

Frequent travel is exhausting and demanding on your body.
Frequent travel is exhausting and demanding on your body.

IMPACTS & ISSUES FOR FREQUENT TRAVELLERS:

  • Health suffers
  • Physical condition declines
  • Need to protect your body
  • Inconsistent facilities
  • Time poor

Understanding the issues and challenges first hand, Nick worked with his Physiotherapist to find a solution to these challenges.

THE CONCEPT

In 2012 Nick began working on a solution with four key criteria:

  • Rehabilitation demands had to be met
  • Compact take anywhere equipment
  • Durable enough to withstand frequent use and travel
  • Exercise with cardio and resistance workouts

After months of looking he had not found any single, stand-alone solution...so Nick set about creating his own.

THE PRODUCT

In 2013, Nick resigned from his job to found Fitness Traveller and work on bringing the Fitness Traveller Kit to the market. 

In that time Nick has:

  • Worked with multiple suppliers from across the world
  • Sampled many products
  • Identified the right suppliers
  • Refined the product offer
  • Received and tested multiple prototypes
  • Invested more than $20,000 plus time and effort into this business

All of this has resulted in developing the FITNESS TRAVELLER KIT:

The final concept and today's Fitness Traveller Kit

 The Fitness Traveller Kit is an all-in-one solution that is:

  • Able to be used anywhere, anytime
  • Easy to use
  • Suitable for all fitness levels
  • Light and compact enough to fit inside carry-on luggage (only 1.5kgs)

It consists of:

 * Every Fitness Traveller Kit has instructions inside to make sure you know how to use every piece of equipment to get the most out of your experience.

 NEXT STEPS:

Our team at Fitness Traveller have spent many years launching products to market for some of the world's leading companies, and now we want to do it ourselves which is really exciting!!

We have paired up with a professional sourcing company who have worked with us to find the best parts, for the best kit, for you to be able to have your kit at the right price. Their job is to make sure we get these products on time, to the right quality and into your office or home. 

To complete that process we have partnered with an experienced team of freight forwarders, warehousing and logistics specialists that allow us to get the Fitness Traveller products to anywhere in the world safely, and at the most cost-effective price. 

We want you to have your Fitness Traveller Kit and other products as early as possible, so here is our plan to make this happen:

Risks and challenges

At Fitness Traveller we are focused on making sure that our idea is executed properly. Through regular updates we will keep you fully informed the whole way through the process.

We have spent a lot of time and worked very hard to have our products ready for Kickstarter and beyond, but just to be safe we thought through all our risks and here they are:

MANUFACTURING:

Our supplier has been checked and tested against many other suppliers since last year. We chose them specifically because they can handle large-scale orders and deliver the finished products on time. Sometimes however even the best plans can go to waste. We expect the manufacturing to take 28 days from placement of the first order. We will continue to work closely with them and our sourcing agent Cindy will even inspect the finished product to make sure you get what you’re paying for.

FREIGHT, WAREHOUSING AND DELIVERY:

Occasionally the logistics of even the best companies can go wrong… sometimes the ship can turn left instead of right and go the wrong way!
To minimize this issue with freight forwarding, warehousing and delivery to you, we have a back up plan for every step. Be it finding a new freight forwarding company, changing warehouses or using a second delivery service to make sure you get your products on time and in full, we believe we have it covered.

We are working with very experienced partners for each area and we are very confident this won’t happen, and if it does we have the team to deal with any challenge. Our job is to ensure a smooth process from factory to you, and that’s exactly what we plan to do.

Every pledge no matter how great or small helps us reach our goal. We look forward to you helping us bring FITNESS TRAVELLER to market when you click the ‘Back This Project’ button at the top of this page.

If you like our concept please share this page with your friends and colleagues. We’d love to have you visit our webpage, or like and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Pinterest where you can keep up to date with all our activities, helpful hints and useful tips for your fitness and wellbeing.

Thanks for your support,

The Fitness Traveller team.
