Ultimate Vacation Packing List

Jul 11, 2014 5:06:41 AM

Konichiwa!! I'm posting from Tokyo today :) So far I have been having a fantastic trip filled with food (yum), sight seeing, and family reunions. However, after being here for a few days I've realized I am a terrible packer. I've had to run to the local convenience store several times to pick up items that I definitely could have just brought from home. That's why in my downtime I've come up with an ultimate vacation packing list that encompasses everything you'll need on your next vacation! Check it out!


Hopefully you'll be out site seeing and not locked to your computer, but these electronics might be useful in planning your touring expositions.

Cell phone


Especially if you're in a foreign country, it will be nice to have the products you use at home. It'll be much harder to figure out the best brand when you can't read the packaging.

Shaving cream
Tooth paste
Feminine products
Anti itch cream (when the bugs eat you alive despite using bug spray

Eye care
Hopefully you aren't as blind as I am, but if you are...

glasses case
contacts case
contact solution

Vacation equals tons of pictures. Avoid cringing when you look at them later by making sure you have all the items necessary to look your best.

hair ties
make up
straightener/curling iron
hair brush/comb

There's something about traveling that always makes me want to dress to impress. Make sure you have all your clothing essentials in your suitcase. Though if you forget something you can always go shopping ;)
Formal wear
Pj's/lounge wear
Purses/messenger bags
Credit card (if you're in a different county, the fashion might be a little different. Best to have the cash to buy some clothes to fit in ;)

The most important thing you need is your passport, but check out some other key docs as well.

Guide book
Translating dictionary (you might not have Internet on your phone 24/7)
boarding passes
passport/visa/driver’s license
insurance cards
frequent flier card

Whether or not your on a beach vacation, you might want to hit the hotel hot tub or pool.

Swim suits
Swim suit cover up
Aloe Vera (when you burn anyways)
Beach ball or other toys

These may not fit into the major categories but you'll DEFINITELY want to pack these items

Pocket knife

Congratulations to Rubberbanditz creator Ari Zandman Zeman for graduating from UCLA's Anderson School of Business! UCLA's MBA program is one of the top business schools in the country, so we're super proud of Ari! Of course he couldn't just be normal and wear leis and sashes to his graduation, he had to wear his Rubberbanditz bands at graduation ;) Congrats!!


Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day

I have been looking forward to Memorial Day mainly because it means a day off. However, I was recently reminded of what the day is really meant to celebrate and no, its not sleeping in! Memorial Day's true purpose is to honor the thousands of men and women who have truly put their country first. In the midst of our weekend activities, its important we take the time to acknowledge and revere US soldiers past and present.

Happy Friday, everyone!

We've got a cool new video up on our YouTube channel that shows how the bands can be used to work on your first step in basketball. They seem to work...that guy looks awfully tired by the end of the vid!

Thanks go to Chris Zolman for submitting this footage. If you guys have any video of you or your friends using our bands then be sure to submit it! We'll post it on the blog and give you a shout out. If you don't have any...take some!

Pilates, Rubberbanditz style

Aug 26, 2010 4:00:09 AM

If you are a fan of us on Facebook or you follow us on Twitter, then you already know the news:

Yoga increases your happiness and decreases your anxiety.

I could use summa’ that. I bet you could too. So let’s get our Rubberlates on!

This move might look familiar to you, and it should. It's a classic yoga move with a Rubberbanditz resistance band twist. This will add a little something extra to an ordinary move.

T-Shape Superman

Start with your arms out perpendicular to your body and your palms facing your feet.

In a fluid motion while keeping your navel drawn inward and upward toward the spine, raise your torso and legs off the floor.

Slide your shoulder blades into the imaginary pockets in your upperback for stabilization and pull your arms back as far as you can.

TShape Superman

Hold this static position for as long as possible while keeping these tips in mind:

- Squeeze your shoulder blades together

- Maintain navel drawn to spine

- Squeeze your glutes to feel like your pubic bone is flat on the ground

- Keep your neck long and straight

May the Fourth Be With You

Who said sitting by the pool or on the beach has to be a sloth’s paradise.  Don’t let the yearning for self-improvement wither away in the sun’s rays.  Burn calories while getting sun burned!

I’m celebrating my future grandparents in-laws’ 50th wedding anniversary in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico trying to muster enough energy to push myself away from the buffet table and work off the mountain of comida I just inhaled.  The 4th of July is the time to celebrate your independence and exercise your freedom.
