What are Physical Therapy/Professional Resistance Bands?

Think big rubber band. That sounds simplistic, but that's just what these tools are. However, they provide an extremely effective workout. The elastic bands typically come in various levels of resistance, so you can customize your workout session to suit your needs. The color-coded bands represent light, medium and heavy levels of resistance

What are the Bands Used for?

Professional resistance bands are used as effective exercise tools, for targeted stretch routines and for physical therapy sessions. Exercise equipment bands allow you to target specific areas without putting extra pressure on your joints, making them the ideal choice in a medical setting as physical therapy bands. They help stabilize your movements, creating controlled, fluid motions.

What are the Benefits of Using Resistance Bands?

Resistance bands are an easy, inexpensive way to enhance any workout. Here are four more perks you can expect

  • Great for any fitness level. Customize your workout to fit your needs. In addition to the varying resistance levels of each colored band, you can further adjust resistance by giving the band more or less slack, or by combining multiple bands for one exercise.
  • Add versatility to any workout. Resistance bands are great additions to familiar strength-training moves. You can lose the hand weights by replacing them with simple bands, or alternate equipment to vary your workout.
  • Get ultimate protability. Whether you want to take your workout equipment on the road with you, or simply store it easily at home, resistance bands require minimal space.
  • Easily combine with other equipment. Vary your routine or add to the intensity. Therapy bands compliment almost any other piece of equipment to create an effective workout. For example, combine a band with a dumbbell to get the benefits of both pieces of equipment.
