You may have seen Bodylastics 12 Resistance Bands several times on TV over the years. They’ve been generating mixed reviews throughout the fitness industry for quite some time now. But are they effective, do they do what they say, and how do they differ from other resistance bands? Find out with my Bodylastics review below.

 

My Review of the Bodylastics Resistance Bands

It’s clear that Bodylastics have put a lot of thought into the design and functionality of their resistance bands. First of all they come in a smart color coded system, were each color highlights different resistance levels. Unlike many other more traditional resistance bands, the Bodylastics come with swivel clips which allow for a quick transistion in resistance levels. They’ve also included several other attachments that increase both the functionality and durability which include wider ankle straps, a door anchor, stronger latex tubing, extra padding on the handles, and various other add-ons which help make it a really enjoyable system to use.

For an average price less than $100, the bodylastics resistance bands are an excellent alternative to the more expensive home gyms from Bowflex and Total Gym. Not only can you get a full body workout from bodylastics, you can workout at a high intensity too, with resistance systems producing upto 388 lbs of resistance!

  • Surgical grade elastic tubing

  • Handles – strong soft cushioned handles with large O-rings to hold many resistance bands
  • Ankle straps
  • Door anchor
  • User guide with over 120 exercises

  1. These bands are the best investment in your personal health and fitness that you will ever make. They are amazing. The resistance feels better than a cable pulley machine. I worked out with these for about 6 months. Then I bought a gym membership. Not one single machine in the entire gym felt as smooth and even as the resistance bands. I still go the the gym but now I bring my Bodylastics bands with me.

  2. The bodylastics in my eyes are the best exercise bands that money can buy. Top build quality, smooth motion, and affordable. Must buy.

  3. Great product use it 5 times weekly since October of 2011. Loss of 8 lbs and gain of strenght and stamina.. Luv it.

  4. I just finished training on them today. Most definitely worth the investment, I purchased on Amazon. I can take them with me when I travel and I stay lean and slim.

    I keep one pack at home and one in the car/trips, so I always have a gym.

  5. When I first got them I had to get used to them, because I left free weights. Two of the bands brook, and the others our showing signs of braking! I don’t know what to think, they should have lasted longer. Linda
