fitGevity Resistance Bands and Resistance Band Exercises #win

At my local gym we have our regulars and a nice steady flow of new members. But I know from years of experience that once January hits we will have many new members with goals of remaking their bodies and improving their health, which I completely applaud! I get excited for these new members, even as they look at the machines, equipment and free weights with trepidation. They aren’t sure of what to do … yet. So they jump on the cardio equipment and watch.

As a personal trainer, I love leading them to the wonders of strength training. Strength training has an important place in toning the body, losing fat and building that coveted lean muscle. I adore the free weights for that, but there is also a place for using your body weight and resistance bands for those times that weights aren’t easily accessible, or simply to change up your routine.

fitgevitysetfitGevity Resistance Bands are perfect for that. You can order them on Amazon as a set. It includes

  • 41″ loop band: purple: 10-35 pounds of resistance,
  • 41″ loop band: orange: 30-50 pounds of resistance,
  • 2 foam padded handles,
  • 1 door anchor,
  • 1 anywhere strap;
  • 1 extra carabineer clip;
  • 1 carry bag
  • Access to fitGevity Fitness Videos

For me, it’s a travel must. If you are on the road a lot or have limited access to the gym, this can get you started. You can get a full body workout with the bands, hitting your triceps, biceps, legs, back and core. If you outgrow the 50 pounds of resistance of the orange band, then just loop the orange and purple band together.

Some of my favorite exercises included using them for:

Donkey Kicks, to strengthen the glutes and hamstrings

Lunge with Bicep Curl

Upright Rows and Tricep Extensions were also fun options! And I was delighted with the resistance I felt with “just bands”. They definitely challenged my muscles. And when I was all done, I just packed it away in its little travel bag again. It’s definitely nice to throw into my gym bag, just in case I wanted to change up my routine a little or if the weights I normally choose are all being used by other gym members.

fitGevity resistance bands have a 5 out of 5 star rating on Amazon. You can check there for their most current pricing. They also have additional sets, bands and accessories available. You can find them at fitgevitysolutions.com.
