What is a Bodylastics Resistance Bands System?
The Best Workout System You Will Ever Own! Bodylastics offers resistance band gym systems that can stand toe to toe with the large bulky home gym machines.
Smoothest Resistance – When we were first developing the Bodylastics System, we searched for the smoothest source of resistance on the planet. Well, we found it – elastic resistance tubing (bands). Not only is resistance tubing super smooth when you stretch it, but it is incredibly light and flexible. That means it is easy to store – no extra room needed!
Once we decided that elastic resistance tubing would be our resistance “engine”, we set out to design a system that could create several levels of tension. This would enable users of all strength levels to get the best results possible.
So, we created the Bodylastics Quick Clip System. Our elastics have heavy duty aluminum clips secured to the ends so that they can be easily attached to handles and ankle straps. This simple yet effective design gives users the ability to generate from 15 to over 100 levels of tension (depending on which set you order).
Below is a commercial that ran in 2000 Yes, it a little hokey and the product
is outdated but it gives a great overview of what this system can do:
99.9% Snap Resistant - Patented D.G.S. Technology
This changes everything!
Resistance bands systems can help you to make extraodinary changes to your body. Now resistance bands just got better! In 2008 Bodylastics International Inc. began working on a new technology that would make resistance bands even safer and more durable. This technology is called D.G.S., which stands for Distance Governor Safety and is designed to prevent the user from snapping an elastic.
D.G.S. works by limiting the length that a Bodylastics elastic can be stretched. We know what your thinking "Wait, you mean I will not be able to fully stretch my Bodylastics bands?!" Not exactly. D.G.S. will enable you to fully stretch your elastics for all of the best exercises, however, it will not let you stretch an elastic to the point where it will become damaged.
Elastic bands start to tear and eventually snap because the user unintentionally stretches them beyond their point of elasticity. In the past there was no way for a user to know when they were going to overstretch an elastic. Well, those days are over! Bodylastics bands with D.G.S. will actually give you feedback letting you know "Hey you are about to stretch me too far and I will not let you!"
How does D.G.S. limit the length that an elastic can be stretched? The secret is actually hidden inside the elastic band. We place a super strong (150 lbs. of tensile strength) braided cord inside the band, which is four times the length of the band. When the inner cord is fully elongated it pulls on the ends of the elastic and stops like a super strong rope.
Bodylastics International is proud to announce that EVERY elastic band that ships with our resistance bands systems now includes the amazing D.G.S. design - workout with confidence!
Over 140 of the top gym exercises
Well, the statement above is not really true. This product is so versatile that the actual number of exercises is only limited by your imagination and creativity.
All Bodylastics Resistance Band systems can create over 140 of the greatest exercises from the best equipped health clubs and gyms. We’re not talking about make-shift exercises that kind of do the same thing as the $20,000 machines, we are talking about the same exact exercises.
The exercises to the left are merely a tiny sample of the top gym exercises that you can perform with Bodylastics. For even more information about the exercises Click Here.
Bodylastics paired with Liveexercise.com
Makeover your body however YOU choose!
Bodylastics really is an amazing exercise product. It is so versatile that you can use it to fit your needs and goals. That’s the beauty of this system. With only one machine that could fit in your briefcase – you can create the body that you want. Want to add muscle – really add muscle? Done! Want to burn fat & lose weight to become more toned? Done!
Up until the end of 2009 we provided some adequate tools to help our customers make changes to their bodies. We offered the circuit training video, user manual and our online learning center Strength Band University. Yep, these are good but we wanted something that was mind blowing. So, at the end of 2009 we launched a groundbreaking new site called liveexercise.com. This site is like nothing else on the planet. It cotains over 1850 full length Bodylastics wokouts! All Bodylastics customers recieve FREE access (3 to 6 months depending on your system) to these "live" and On Demand workout shows. No more guess work! Simply pick a show, follow along and see results!
Build muscle? Big time!!!
Can you build muscle with Bodylastics resistance bands? ABSOLUTELY. We actually have workout shows that are geared for gaining muscle on liveexercise.com, and they are proven to work. The first muscle building show that we launched on liveexercise.com is our signature show, and it is called "Chiseled". Yes, I will tell you that we are biased but the show is fantastic! The workout routine changes every month so that the workouts stay fresh and super effective.
Take a look below at the Chiseled promo and just a couple of the befores and afters
of folks that used Bodylastics in combination with Chiseled:
(The results above were achieved in 90 days during our 2010 transformation contest):
Let's go one step further. If you still need some concrete documentation. There have actually been numerous studies that prove elastic resistance can build muscle as good if not better than free weights. Click Here to view the the data from several of these studies
You don’t have to take our word for it, all you’d have to do is ask any one of our thousands and thousands of customers who either stopped going to the gym, or ended up selling their free weights on ebay.
Quick & incredible weight loss
Losing weight is not easy!!! As you get older it can become even more difficult. We here at Bodylastics Int’l know this. That’s why we set out to create weight shedding, fat burning workouts that would be fun and easy to follow.
Soon after we began filming and streaming the Chiseled muscle building show, we added a series of resistance bands workouts that are designed to burn calories and fat. Follow along with the Bodylastics Toning Workout, Kenpo Kickboxing or Chiseled Cardio to see results FAST! Oh yeah, did we mention again that these workout shows are FREE??!! Since we launched these shows we have helped literally thousands of people take control of their weight in a way that if fast and fun.
Unlike boring treadmills and exercise bikes, these workouts are filmed "live" so you never know what is going to happen or said next. Check out the promo below for the Bodylastics Toning Workout:
The “WOW!” Factor
When I first started selling Bodylastics, I would show it to all of my friends. So many of them looked at the system and snickered. I’d say “okay wise guy, give it a try.” I would clip on 4 elastics and have them perform a biceps curl. Without exaggeration 100% of them said “wow!” and then wanted to buy one.
Our Resistance Band systems don’t look like they can give you a workout like free weights. In this case looks are definitely deceiving. You will just have to trust me on this one. I have never seen anyone who was not pleasantly shocked on the very first repetition with this product. This system is unlike any elastic or elastic home gym system that you have ever tried – I guarantee it!
In 2002 we had a booth at the Arnold Classic in Ohio. This is one of the most famous Bodybuilding shows and also hosts the largest fitness Expo. Not knowing what to expect we brought 450 sets of Bodylastics for sale.
At the last minute I came up with an idea to get people to try it. We challenged guys walking by, some huge some average size to curl all four elastics (the max resistance at that time) 30 times. Well, that definitely drew ‘em in!
Out of about 1000 only about 30 could do it and let me tell you something, everyone was raving about the product. People were so blown away by the product that we sold out in 1.5 days!! These guys could not believe how well Bodylastics worked their muscles. You won’t believe it either!
Andrew got rid of his Bowflex and
now gets a better workout with
Bodylastics, not to mention
compliments on his physique
Here’s what Andrew had to say
Blake, I was actively involved in power lifting and bodybuilding for many years before my divorce in 2001 and the death of my Father shortly afterwards. I was always complemented on my physique and felt very fit before these trying times. Succumbing to stress and depression, I ceased working out altogether.
I have remarried since then and I am now raising three children. I found that going to the gym was impossible so I purchased a $1700 Bowflex in hopes of regaining my fitness ( and former waistline). My Wife absolutely hated the damned thing! It took up too much space. I really did not want to give the machine up because it really worked!
However, in keeping the peace I got rid of it. I continued to lose the physique I was so proud of. I came across your website one day while searching for a home exercise machine that would be smaller but just as effective as the Bowflex.
I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. The price was so inexpensive, I ordered it. Needless to say, I’m hooked!!!!!
I Have since ordered more bands and cannot get over the convenience of the product!! I'm actually getting a better workout than I did with the Bowflex and the gym. I'm also getting compliments from my friends and family. They all think that I've joined a gym. My wife can't keep her hands off me. My two older children brag about "Daddy's muscles" to their friends.
I have since ordered more bands and cannot get over the convenience.
Thank You and Much Praise.
Easy on the Joints, tough on the muscles!
One of the biggest reasons why many other pro athletes are moving to Bodylastics and Resistance Bands for their training is because it provides super effective resistance without the joint pain and injuries.
Have you trained with free weights before? You know that pain that you feel in your joints on a heavy bench press or shoulder press…GONE! You will feel the best muscle pumps of your life without the joint pain that usually goes along with it.
Unlike free weights, elastic resistance does NOT create momentum. It’s momentum that causes many injuries – the weight keeps moving, but the ligaments, tendons and muscles do not. It always seems that whenever you begin to see amazing changes in the gym with free weights, you sustain an injury that derails your progress.
Bodylastics will enable you to work your muscles to the max week in and week out without the occasional setback.
How do Bodylastics Resistance Band Systems work?
How does Bodylastics work? How can it create so many exercises? The secret is in our unique and well planned design. The two main features that make this product so versatile are the Bodylastics door anchor and Quick Clip System. An explanation for each are highlighted below:
Main Feature #1 - Bodylastics Door Anchor
Years ago we invented the best door anchor on the market. A door anchor will enable you to safely attach your resistance bands to almost any door. By attaching your bands to a door you will be able to recreate hundreds/thousands of gym exercises not possible with an anchor point. Our door anchor was specially designed so that you can securely place it on the side as well as the top or bottom of the door. This unique component is included with every Bodylastics system. Here’s how it works:
|Step 1||Step 2||Step 3||Step 4|
Place anchor behind the
door, on the hinge side
of the door.
Thread the looped end in
between the door and
door frame and then
shut the door
|Open the loop||
Thread the elastic through
the loop - That’s it..you’re in!
Main Feature #2 Quick Clip System
Before the introduction of Bodylastics in 1998, Resistance Band workouts were very limiting. There was simply no way to adjust the tension like with free weights and machines. So, we came up with the Quick Clip System. By attaching clips on the ends of the elastics we enabled the user to easily adjust the level of tension.
With that one little adjustment our system instantly became THE perfect muscle working machine for grandmothers and Bodybuilders alike. Here is how the clip system works:
Each of the 4 foot long bands is a different thickness and therefore creates a different level of tension. To create the exercises, you clip the elastic(s) on to the included handles and ankle straps. You can use the elastics individually or combine them to create up to 94 levels of tension (depending on the set that you purchase).
You can clip from 1 Elastic... To over 7 elastics at the same time
"I encourage you to ask the
professionals about this product"

Anna the head of a personal training
company in NYC has her trainers use
Bodylastics with ALL of their clients
Here’s what Anna had to say
Dear Bodylastics, Thank you so much for this amazing product! Bodylastics are brilliant! Running a personal training company I am always on the lookout for best equipment.

But besides how much fun everyone is having they can’t get over how their bodies have transformed… moving up in resistance to a new color band each time they get stronger.
One client related getting up to the black band resistance to getting her black belt in Karate- she loves it! Bodylastics truly are powerful body sculpting tools.
They are so light and well packaged you can bring them along with you wherever you go and get top notch workout anywhere!!! Bodylastics is without a doubt the best in its class and has become a vital part of my companies training system! I recommend them to everyone who has a body and the desire to improve it! Thank you!
How do we stack up against
Since Bodylastics International Inc. launched its first resistance bands system back in 1998, there have been several "me too" products on the market. Over the past few years due to the growing popularity of elastic resistance training, the number of knock off wannabees has even accelerated. So, how do we stack up? Well, you know what our answer is going to be - no one even comes close!
Our systems are designed for ease of use, durability and efficacy (how well do they work). We design and redesign our systems to please our harshest critics, ourselves! We actually use the product every day and therefore incorporate our "wish lists" into the designs. Bodylastics International feels that many design aspects of our systems are so superior that we had them patented.
Listen, will you absolutely get a better workout with our band system over others? Who knows, but take a look below to see just a couple of side by side comparisons between Bodylastics and the typical competitor.
Let's first take a look at the core of any elastic band system, the bands. No,
you can't tell what a band system is all about by looking at the outside - you've
got to check out whats under the hood! Bodylastics incorporates the best
materials and the best manufacturing to insure the best exercise experience!
Now let's take a look at an ultra important component, the Handle. This
component is the only thing that stands between you and a high powered sling
shot - it better be super strong. Bodylastics handles are made with injected Nylon
(the strongest plastic) for structural strength under intense pressure.
