Dare I say that one of the hardest habits to create is a workout regimine. It's one of those lifelong habits that you start, stop, and start again so many times that you lose count. And of course, then there comes along all of the most new and innovative tools that are supposed to help make everything easier, quicker, and produce ore results.
I must say that I have tried a lot of workout tools in my day. Everything from various balls, weights, ropes, bands, and whatever else you can think of.
However, one thing that I had been wanting to try for months were resistance bands! But where do I start. Do I get the open bands or the loop bands? Do I get the log bands or short bands? And what's the difference in resistance levels of the bands. Ultimately, how do I use these things in order to maximize their effectiveness as a part of my overall fitness goals.
Then I tried The Body Factory set of 5 Resistance Body Bands for Fitness/Abs/Physical Therapy/Stretching. Additionally, this product came with 2 Dual Sided Core Sliders, which I had absolutely no idea how to use but it was stated that it was for Core Strengthening, Glutes, and Fat Burning.
So of course like all smart people (including myself, LOL) I headed over to YouTube to see if I could find someone who knew how to use these bands and fell in love with what I saw. It appeared that the exercises that people do with these small look resistance bands are simple, yet effective. Now, that's my type of exercise!
I'll leave the links at the bottom of this blog with my favorite examples of how to use these products. But in the mean time, let's get right into my personal review!! I was so excited when my bands arrived in the mail!!
THE ORDERING PROCESS: The ordering process was simple, you're typical amazon experience. The item was priced right at about $15 bucks and the all of the band perks were spelled out in plain language and understandable. The description was thorough and detailed.
VALUE: The price was perfect! I've typically paid a lot more for exercise equipment hoping for amazing results and this purchase made me feel like I'd bought multiple items for the cost of lunch.
CUSTOMER SERVICE: The products came packed in protective bubble-wrap envelop and a convenient carrying case. It also came with a nice little card inviting me to review the product on Amazon and contact them if I am not completely satisfied. It included contact information.
QUALITY: The quality of the product was great. The bands were well made with high quality color and material and withstood the toughest wear and tear that I put on it.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Overall, the product did exactly what it indicated that it would do!! I love these bands!!
And one of my favorite things about them is that they are portable, pack easy in their little carry case, and I am able to travel with them without them taking up a little of space. As you can see in the attached photos, I took these on vacation with me and their photo shoot happened right there in my hotel room.
Check back later in the week for my new YouTube video and a demonstration on my favorite ways to use the resistance bands.
