I am a retired Police Officer that has gone back to work in Security at a College. Three nights a week I work in the office as dispatch. I have been looking for a way to keep in shape and ran across Bodylastics on the internet. I read all you have about your equipment and decided to take a chance. I am truly happy that I did. The exercise Eq. is beyond my expectations. Several of the other people that work here ask me to leave them so they can use them when they work the desk. Two of them have decided to buy a set for themselves. I purchased the middle set and found it to be exactly what I needed. I have not been able to use them all at once yet. I work night the shift and get tired during the night and when I do my work out I come back to life, plus I know I am building strength. I am 61 years old and find it will take a little longer to see results. But after just three weeks I feel the strength I have gained.
Well I just wanted you to know how much I like your equipment and feel it is well worth the money.

As I live in the global economy as a professional networkmarketeer I travel about 50% of my time. Your bodylastics system keeps me in the best shape ever !! It is my little secret I always have with me in my traveling luggage ! And I travel a lot my friend ! Bodylastics is the greatest fitness system I have ever come across. Worth much more than the price you ask for it, but don't tell anyone
I am a certified personal trainer in Rochester, NY. I love the bodylastic bands that have been invented. As a fitness trainer and enthusiast I have made believers out of all of my clients as well as the guys who think that they can't get bigger or stronger with the bands of bodylastics. The bodylastic bands have save my mind and body and my clients are enjoying the benefits as well.
I recently purchased bodylastics, the Terrell Owens Strong Man Edition, and I can not say enough about them! I am an advid fitness person, mainly using free weights and machine weights in my routine. I am 31 years old and have been training for ten years. In that time, I have done many different routines, and the wear and tear on my joints has taken it's toll. In particular, tricep, skull krushers, and heavy bench press have caused a bit of tenderness in my elbows....
Enter bodylastics- I have been supersetting standing bicep curls with tricep extensions for the last month as a change of pace. Since using Bodylastics, the tenderness in my elbows have all but gone and my strength has actually gone up! The range of motion and easiness on the joints is such a relief!!
Many of my friends were skeptical, since Terrell Owens is my favorite athlete in the NFL. When I first started training, I pattened my physique to look like his. All of my friends said, "You are just getting those to be like TO.", etc... I can honestly say that your product has been life changing (in fitness terms) and I am more than satisfied with Bodylastics! I have even had seasoned personal trainers ask me about them, and naturally, I have directed them to Bodylastics.com and TOBANDS.com. Once again, thank you for making a quality product. I will never train without them again.
Dan, a personal trainer, cancelled his orders for super expensive gym equipment after using Bodylastics
Here's what Dan had to say about Bodylastics:
Your product is the BEST. That speaks for itself. I hope you are being successful at this and good stuff is happening for you. It's a great product and deserves it's place in the market.
I have never found the bands "limiting" in any way. There is more you can with the bands than a $100,000 HAMMER machine.
A week before I bought the bands I had literally cleared out space in my gym, for my new $2000 back machine. I purchased the Bodylastics bands and changed my mind about the back machine.
I did not NEED the new back machine! nor the curl machine I was looking at as well! Saved me $$$$.
The bottom line is they work in a way...weights and machines can't! It seems the old school guys like me, are the hardest to convince. But I am breaking them down. All they have to do is give it an honest effort (one workout) and the proof of the value of band training is evident. Have a great day.
(Individual results may vary from those shown.)
I am a mom of two and 56 years old. I have been in the gym with Buddy Primm, Terrell's trainer, for the passed two and a half years in Atlanta, Georgia. Buddy brought bodylastics into the gym in January, I love them. I have a set at home and just sent a set to my daughter in Philadelphia. My son Matt is the QB for the Houston Texans, I hope he will purchase a set for his workout. I see a difference already in my strength much quicker than with the big machines in the gym. It is a nice compliment to the cardio equipment, machines and they are so easy to take when I travel.
Thank you for this incredible product.
I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing product. I have incorporated the Bodylastics Resistance Bands into my work and I have lost 30 pounds. I believe in your product so much that I decided to join your affiliate program.
Your product works. Especially when you are on a tight budget and can not afford a monthly club membership.
In my opinion Bodylastic Resistance Bands is the best home gym out there.
Check out my Blog to see my before and after pics...http://javblog.freehostia.com/
Thank you again.
I purchased the Terrell Owens bands in January. I have not touched free weights except to win my weight class in the Military European Power Lifting Competition!!! I have gotten into the best shape of my life largely due to the resistance bands. My shoulders no longer hurt from the strain and stress of lifting free weights.
I love my bands! LOL I also have to order a set for my wife because she's always using them too.
Thanks a Million,
Blake, my name is David Knapp. I am a personal trainer in New Jersey. I bought a set of your bands about one year ago. I must tell you this is a personal training company in a bag. My clients get a great workout with out leaving their homes. I can also tell you I have a bowflex that sits in my basement and has not been used by me since I got bodylastics, I do have on problem though, When i do squats with these I can use more weight. Would it be possible to purchase the orange 30lb band by itself. This would be a big help to my personal work outs not to mention my stronger clients. Thank you in advance for you help in this matter
I purchased your product recently and I must say it definitely meets my expectations. Everybody who’s into fitness should get this product. I mean the elastics are great, but the training guide is something I was really surprised with. Great job!
It's been a few weeks since spoke about the new bands. The new clips are great. I'm seriously considering getting the TO super strongman set, I love the new clips, and the heavy duty 30 lb bands would be great for my leg work. With the max tension set I have I can do a super set routine easier. I still mention bodylastics in my forum posts. I use them in my present workout. Some iron pumpers might be hard sells, but I've seen my leg strength increase with them, and my time come down in my timed fitness walking. I've also seen improvements with a gimpy knee.
I just got my set of Max Tension Bodylastics resistance bands on Tuesday. Let me tell you, my first workout was exactly what I expected it to be. AWSOME!!!! The quality of the system is better than any system I have looked at. I am very particular with my money and what I buy. I wanted a weight set that did not take up room in the house. I was looking at dumbbells but the cost was too high for me. I talked to my bother one day and he recommended the Bodylastics set because he had tried them in a store and said they were a quality product. Boy was he right. I love them. I am 34 years old and on January 7th I weighed 265lbs. My Mom died in December of 2007 just before Christmas of breast cancer. I promised her I would lose the weight. I have lost 37lbs since then and now with your product I plan to lose 28lbs more. Thanks again for such an high quality set that was affordable.
I purchased one of your "max tension systems" last Sept. used it for a few months and thought I would try a weight machine. So I bought a Body Solid G1S , after only six weeks on the weight machine I've decided to sell it and go back to your Body lastic bands.
Your bands are so much easier to use and I don't have any of the back pain as when using the weight system, since I have a greater range of resistance to use with your bands. (had back surgery 3 years ago).
My problem now is that I've lost the link in my bookmarks list to the strength band university. I believe I had a years membership after purchasing the bands. Could you send the link to me ?
I'm presently working out Mon - Tues Chest, Shoulders, Triceps & abs. and Thurs - Fri Legs, Back, Biceps & abs
You have one great product and I will not use anything else.
I just received my Bodylastics set and I have inspected everything and have been doing exercises. I am VERY impressed by the quality of the equipment and how simple everything is to use. I have been a bodybuilder for over 30 years and injuries have prevented me from lifting weights anymore. Your continuous tension band training system allows me to get a great workout without aggravating old injuries. And let me tell you, I could not believe the burn and pump that I got!! I feel that it is more effective than my weight lifting sessions used to be. I look forward to many years of training with your system. You have obviously put alot of thought into the development of Bodylastics. Congratulations on a GREAT product and thank you.
I have been using the Bodylastics training system for the last month and I already see changes for the better. I am a former competitive bodybuilder and I haven't been able to lift regular weights due to injuries. I thought my bodybuilding days were over. However, at age 50, I am as enthused as ever. During my competitive days I have trained with pro and amateur bodybuilders as well as many pro wrestlers. To be honest with you, when I first started using Bodylastics, I was wondering if your product could hold up to my kind of workouts which are very hard and heavy. Bodylastics has exceeded all of my expectations. It is not only a rugged, well designed product, but the system allows me to work my muscles using different angles so I can work around injuries. It is also very simple to use. I will keep you updated. I am one satisfied customer. Please keep up the good work.
I have a good one for you: As a friend I've known for about 30 years and I were walking home (always safe and legal, ay?) from a local bar and talking, my friend hit a tree root in the sidewalk and tripped, landing on top of me. My friend was a big guy when I met him and the years have not made him any smaller. When he landed on me he cracked a rub on my rib side and then rolled into a stretch of cactus bushes between the sidewalk and the street... the ONLY cuctus to be found in Springfield. Had I not been in so much pain I would have been laughing a lot harder than I was.
I was advised by my doctor, and family and friends, to "take it easy" until the rib was completely healed - two to three months! Well, there was no way I was going to go 2 or 3 months without working out, but I did take the first week to "take it easy." After that I started taking calcium supplements and went back to my Bodylastics workout, but slower motion and with much less resistance. It was a little painful and uncomfortable initially but I worked through it, every day, and was soon up to the red and green bands.
It is now about 6 weeks after the injury. I am back up to my normal routine, and then some, and rarely even feel the rib. I credit this very quick recovery to my Bodylastics workout routine.
Hi Blake my name is Lou Lopez and at 51 years young I have been working out with everything from free weights to cables all my life,and in my early twenties came close to competing in a drug free bodybuilding contest.I am just a week into the bodylastics and I swear they are easier to use than free weights yet much more effective not to mention how they store away neatly in their small bag.The day after each workout I am more sore than the dumbbells I have been using and I am done with my workout in 30 minutes instead of the boring hour I was used to.I could go on but you get my point I'm sure, these things are great in every way and again a million thanks.
To Blake and Bodylastics:
I was anxiously anticipating the arrival of the Maximum Tension set for a really long time. I must say that it was well worth the wait and my money! Your product is one of a kind compared to the rest of the competition such as the Bowflex home gyms and the Crossbar by Weider. Before I started using your product, I struggled a lot using the Crossbar. What is bad about the Crossbar is that it is in my garage. I could not bring it in the house because me and my dad had just installed hard wood floors. I could not work out on cold days because sometimes I would end up having the cold and/or I would have to drastically lower the resistance since the freezing weather would severely affect the resistance rods of the Crossbar. Then on hot days in California, using the Crossbar in my garage would make me sweaty after the first couple minutes I started working out. I could not concentrate because sweat is all over my face and I would have to use a towel every few seconds. In addition, using the Crossbar in the summer would force me to dramatically increase the resistance because the weather also plays a role in the resistance rods. I continued this pattern for a couple years where I would decrease the resistance during the winter and increase it during the spring and summer. I was going nowhere with the Crossbar if I continued this pattern. I was fed up and had to seek an alternative solution. I could not recall how I was introduced to your product, but the bottom line is that I found one of my solutions through your resistance bands. You have really put yourself as the front runner of the competition in that your product is very convenient, effective, portable, and most importantly, affordable. In addition, your product most definitely helps out college students a lot. If a college student was to transfer out of the university and into an out-of-city or out-of-state university, your product would help them out a lot in a way that they don't have to dismantle their home gyms and take it with them and re-assemble it. With your product, a person can just easily pack it with them and in a minute, they're ready to go. Also, your product works very well in conjunction with the P90X workout videos. When I used your resistance bands with the P90X, I must say that it took me blood, sweat, and tears getting back into shape and I enjoyed every minute of it. I instantly saw results with your product and like that, I'm in love with them. So I would like to, once again, extend my courtesy and respect to what you and your company have done for the people. It's not often that an opportunity like this comes to me. It took me a long time finding which products to use for strength training and I believe that my search is finally over. I would easily recommend your product to anyone in a heartbeat because your product is convenient, portable, affordable, and EFFECTIVE. Thank you very much!

To the many thousands of emails you must get daily on your products, I know that mine will be sounding almost the same, but I feel that I must sound out!
Like most, I belonged to gyms and have my own free weights at home to include a treadmill and an elliptical trainer. I a marathon runner and run some shorter races during the year as well. I recently joined a gym to offset my running and get some muscle tone on my 6’-1” 250 pound frame. I am not an exercise freak or in the best shape that I would like to be in, but I try.
I have owned 2 Bowflex units in the past and loved them. I couldn’t beat the results over using free weights. Due to either budget constraints or didn’t have enough room in the house, I had to sell them.
I was resigned to using free weights at the gym or using my dumbbells at home and was extremely bored!. Free weights and the racks took up real estate in the house too, which causes all sorts of issues when you have other things you must keep!
Recently, I bought a Muscle Flex magazine, I usually don’t buy or subscribe to them, because they are way too expensive and the whole magazine is ads upon ads and all I wanted was some different workout routines to work to. Then I read the article on Terrell Owens, which was featured on the front page. I read that he used these resistance bands to offset his free weight training. I was intrigued. From a male ego point of view, no man would lower himself to using wimpy rubber tubing for resistance training! Those are for babies! Then I read the article and I found the web site TOBANDS.com.
Ok, so I will go out and read the material and investigate. I was hooked after reading your very thorough web site. You even compared the Total Gym and Bowflex to your product. Naturally, that caught my eye! I wanted to try these new resistance bands to see if they stood up to my “so called standards!”
I placed an order to the TOBANDS and I can tell you this much after working out with them for a week now. Where have you been all my life???? >From the moment I reviewed the workout book and learned how to use and work out with the bands I can honestly say that you made a believer out of me. My ego was taken down to the lowest it had been, but in a good way. How can something so affordable, vs. free weights, go un-noticed for so long?
Wanting to have a ripped body like they have on TV, I needed to have a good home workout routine that could incorporate using the bands. I recently purchased the Beachbody.com P90X Home DVD course. They offered their version of resistance bands as part of their training program. I bought them along with the training DVD and I can tell you that they have the resistance tubing, just like you, but they do not have the custom and quality clip on design and door anchor like your product has. I wanted to compare your product with theirs and there is no comparison. Bodylastics clip on design and weight labeling of the tubing on the clip heads alone make this a much better product. The Beachbody resistance bands have no markings on them to know what weight they support. You have to guess the resistance to the color of the band plus you have to squeeze the tubing into plastic handles which is an awkward experience. The next day, I returned the resistance bands.
This has stuck in my mind the moment I read the line: Your muscles have no clue what you are lifting; whether it is a dumbbell, Bowflex rod, barbell, or a piece of rubber latex tubing. All the muscle knows is that it is meeting resistance and has to break down, repair, and grow to make up for the demand of that resistance.
Amazing, every resistance band, ankle strap, wrist band, and door anchor fits into that black bag. I can tote that little thing around anywhere in my suitcase and get the best workout I can ever have!
I still use my dumbbells to offset some of my workouts, but the majority of my workouts stem from the resistance bands. I can do more workout routines with the bands vs. free weights. I just want to thank you for making my workout experience more enjoyable with fantastic results. I am very pleased and I hope your company stays in business for years to come, because I intend to wear the hell out of the bands and purchase new ones!
I am not a marketing or sales person, but you have me networking your products to anyone with an interest in working out at home without the clutter of a home gym equipment apparatus.
Thank you for making this wonderful product.
I waited eagerly myself to recieve this product after getting sick n tired of free weights clanking up my parents main room. paying $800 a year for a gym membership which I stop using and becomes a waste of money. I must say I was blown away with this my first go, I had no idea this rubber tubing could provide this kind of resistance and the door anchor and ankle straps make it perfect not to mention the different resistance levels. The results I have seen in myself from using this product alone are superior. I know I can develop a CHRONIC looking physique if I wanted to with this which really putts a smile on my face.
Thank you for providing this superior product.
I travel over 100,000 miles a year running an international non-profit. While the work is meaningful, it is brutal on my body as I get no exercise for weeks at a time. Finally I have found a solution: Bodylastics! Even in rual areas of Africa and Asia I can work out and keep in shape while on the run. Thank you for filling a huge gap in the fitness industry.
I'm a pilot, so I purchased the T.O. bands because I spend 90% of my life in hotels. However, I played college football, so my usual bench workout is a ladder set starting with 12 x 180 and finishing with 6 x 250. I was somewhat skeptical that the bands would give me a good workout, but figured it was better than nothing.
I just finished my 3rd arm workout using the bands. I'm finding it hard to type this because I can barely lift my arms.
Your product is outstanding.
I got my fitness bands a few weeks ago and really enjoy them very much. At first I was skeptical but, now having done several workouts with them I am a believer. I will even admit that, while doing the workout for the first time I was thinking that this was just too easy and that I was not getting much of a workout. Well, the next morning when I had a little trouble getting out of bed, I realized that I had gotten a great workout and have not missed a scheduled workout since.
Thanks for a great workout,
Thank you for the 1 year access to Strength Band University. I received my bands today (Jan. 17, 2008), strapped them to the door, and started going through the manual. I must say, I am excited but they will take some time getting used to. I also wanted to pass along the reason I decided on using bands, as well as why I chose Bodylastics. First and formost it was a website called iwantsixpackabs.com. I assume you are familiar with the website, but I just wanted to give the man due credit because he thoughly impressed me with how much time and effort he put into his website and workout videos (not to mention he heavily promotes your product). At first I had intended to purchase some cheap bands from ebay ($17.95 shipped) just so I could go through his 16 week program. The more time I spent on his site, the more it made me want to support the products he has posted because of all the free information and help that he gives. I purchased the bands through the link on his page and I do hope that he gets recognition for the sale.
After opening the package and looking over your product, I knew immediately that I had made the right purchase. After simply going through a few exercises, I am 100% satisfied and have yet to really get into using them they way you intended. I showed them to my wife, let her look through the manual, and she too thought they were well worth the money. Hopefully I can get her interested in using them. I will defintely be purchasing more bands in the future as I only purchased the basic set because I wanted to make sure they were something I would use.
Thanks again and may God bless your company and all you do,
Miranda used Bodylastics
Here's what Miranda had to say about Bodylastics:
I just HAVE to let you know how fantastic I think Bodylastics is. As you know, I was a little stuck for a gym for 4 weeks when my sisters wedding forced an overseas holiday right before my first bodybuilding competition!
In those 4 weeks I saw ONE gym! The rest of my training was with your fantastic product! They were extremely quick and easy to use and gave me PLENTY of resistance. The easy to follow manual was great and I could also make up my own exercises. Congratulations on your superb product.
Two weeks after I returned I entered and won my very first bodybuilding competition on 25th September! I got 1st Place (ANB 2005 NSW Championships Figure - Novice - Open); 1st Place (NABBA/WWF Australian Championships Miss Athletic Novice Class 1); 2nd Place (ANB 2005 Australian Championships Miss Figure Tall Class)!
Considering I didn’t set foot in a gym while I was away, using only your Bodylastics system, I am not only extremely happy to endorse your product with a grateful testimonial but would also like to assist you with marketing your product in Australia.
(Individual results may vary from those shown.)
My name is Natasha Quiza, and I recently purchased Bodylastics, TO Super Strong Man Edition Bands for my boyfriend. I tried them at the gym today and couldn't believe how awesome your product was.
I have tried resistance bands in the past, and they don't compare to the feeling yours leave. I feel like I got one of the best workouts I've had in a long time - and I work out with intense weights and cardio daily.
Due to that, I just purchased one for myself (the Max Tension edition) off of your eBay store.
I just wanted to write to let you know that I love you product! and Thanks!
Initially I thought your bands were a joke and wouldn’t do anything but break. Now, 4 days later I am encountering sore muscles from using these “toys.” Years ago I used to use free weights and encountered the same pains when I started, now I have the bands and find them easier to use. Their portability makes them invaluable and the cost, compared to weights, makes them a worthwhile investment.
I've been using the bodylastics system for a few years now and really enjoy the product. As a former athlete, I've used all kinds of weight training equipment (free weights, cable, machines) and routines to maximize my performance. I'm 35 years old now and don't really want to spend the time or money going to a gym. I am now a recreational athlete who also is concerned with my overall health, including injury prevention.
I originally purchased the bodylastics system for when I was on the road, because I've found hotel gyms lack the basic equipment I need to get the best workout. I really used to prefer free weights, and I still think they can be effective, but I find the bodylastics system to be more versitle, easy to store, far less expensive, and portable. It's mind blowing to compare your tote bag with all of the space needed just to store my dumbells. My dumbells are now in the garage collecting dust, though I still find use for my 10 lb plates to anchor down my jump rope floor mat.
The key benefits from my perspective:
Portability: I can throw my jump rope in a bag and take it anywhere. I'm particular about my routine, and don't like to compromise when on the road.
Easy to store: Having a household of 5, being able to store my gym on the shelf of the office closet is great and allows me to use my square footage for other needs.
Effective: I like the concept of Bowflex, but I've used the one my father has, and the resistance is not as smooth as bodylastics, the range of motion is limited, it's way overpriced, and I can't overload the beginning of the movement. I've found bodylastics to be as effective as free weights (especially for the upper body) in building strength if you know how to manipulate the tension on the bands. I've found bodylastics to be more effective than free weights in regard to preserving my coordination (for sports) by mimicking the natural strength curve of my muscles. Lastly, I haven't experienced much soreness with the product, and I can't explain why.
Affordable: Every once in a while, you encounter a product that has the potential to destabilize an established market. With the versatility of the clip system and door anchor, offer far more for your money than free weights.
In all, I've been very pleased with my experience (product and service) and I recommend bodylastics to all I speak with. I've looked into purchasing olympic weights several times in the recent months, but I just can't justify it because of the value I'm currently getting.
I ordered your Maximum Tension system a little over a month ago and eagerly anticipated its arrival in time for me to take on a 10 day trip to Mexico. I was not disappointed. I have been working out 6 to 7 days a week since I turned 50 in January, 2005 with the Power Block free weight system and a Precor elliptical trainer, so am used to working out. I was not sure what the facility in Mexico would have for keeping up with my daily workout regimen and so wanted to stay in at least basic shape with elastic tubing. Boy was I surprised and pleased. The facility I stayed at actually had a fully fitted out workout room, but I used the Bodylastic system anyway to give it a fair try AND I LOVED IT! I am totally impressed with the quality of workout I can get with the Bodylastic system and have now incorporated it into my daily workout routine at home. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. The flexibility of your system makes it a true winner and pleasure to work out with allowing for every intensity level. I intend to keep it as a party of my workout routine for many years to come.
I promised to let you know how things are going a couple of weeks later from when we talked.
I have actually lost 4 pounds now which is encouraging! I went on vacation with my husband and was very proud of myself because I brought the kit with me and was able to work out almost every day. I have advanced to the blue elastic which really gives me a good workout and I only use the green for shoulders and triceps now. I have worked up to doing all three circuits with the blue - it's hard! As I mentioned before, the most improvement has been in the way my clothes fit and that continues to get better. Thanks for your encouragement and support. I really appreciate it!
I just returned home from a fishing vacation with my son Mike (www.executivefitnessfl.com) and and others, and I was happy to see that my "Body Lastic" set was here. I just finished my first work out with it, following the booklet, and I couldn't be happier. I have a basement full of free weights, benches, various bare straps etc, and nothing I've ever used has given me a better full body work out. I have a badly damaged rotator cuff from going over the bars a few times motorcycle drag racing, and I really believe that this will help re-abilitate the shoulder. I'll stay in touch. I should send pics, as I'm 70 years old and I think I look about 35 or 40. My sonhas had me working out for the last 30 years, (Thank God) He even took his "Bodylastics" to Canada with us, and worked out daily-I was more focused on large fish at that time than large muscles.
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 complements 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.
Thank You and Much Praise.
Your product is the BEST. That speaks for itself. I hope you are being successful at this and good stuff is happening for you. IT's a great product and deserves it's place in the market. I have never found the bands "limiting" in any way. There is more you can with the bands than a $100,000 HAMMER machine. A week before I bought the bands I had literally cleared out space in my gym, for my new $2000 back machine. I purchased the Bodylastics bands and changed my mind about the back machine. I did not NEED the new back machine! nor the curl machine I was looking at as well! Saved me $$$$.
I have certain athletes around me that seem to resist band training so I let them (not use bands). The rest have welcomed the new equipment and really embraced it, as I have. The bottom line is they work in a way...weights and machines can't!
It seems the old school guys like me, are the hardest to convince. But I am breaking them down. All they have to do is give it an honest effort (one workout) and the proof of the value of band training is evident.
Have a great day.
I finally received your product today. It took a while since I am stationed overseas in the Army. This product is great. I was so close to buying a bowflex when I saw your website. I thought it was worth a try for $50.00 especially since it's guaranteed. These bands are no joke. The pump I got was like the first time I ever worked out. The full range of motion is great and the exercises are so smooth. Not to mention the quickness in changing resistence and exercises. Thanks for developing such an amazing product. I will be using this for years.
Doug A. Lee
I am writing to thank you for selling such a fantastic product. I have thoroughly enjoyed the last 2 months of working out with the Bodylastics system and have recommended it to all my friends. I am a former personal trainer and now a Registered Nurse, who has been lifting weights for more than 20 years. I have had as much as a 320 lb max in the bench press and compare the Bodylastics favorably, to the feel and strength, necessary to develop stabilizer muscles for even stronger workouts in the future. I take my Bodylastics every time I go out of town for maintaining continuous workouts year around. It is so versatile you literally can do unlimited exercise routines.
Thanks, Blake. The product quality looks and feels top notch. I know this will help me stay in excellent shape (and even improve) while allowing me to spend more time at home vs the gym. I'm a previous Bowflex owner, but couldn't bring it with me to Korea. That's a good machine and very effective, but I don't see how the Bodylastics is any less effective for my workout program.
Dear BL I've used weights for several years and bowflex for several more. I've used your product with a fraction of the price of these other fitness products and its amazing how it works just as well or better in my case. I find I get better results by doing up to 5 sets at 15 reps, instead of the tradional 3 set, 10 rep for shaping muscles. Working out everday, alternating between 2 different routines is also my answer. I just target one exercise for each muscle group. Your product seems to give more development and more defined development. Of course the ease of set up and travel companion is a big plus too! Thanks
Jim felt a better "burn" with Bodylastics than at the gym and now he and his wife ONLY use Bodylastics to work their muscles
Here's what Jim had to say
I recently attended the Arnold Fitness Classic in Columbus Ohio. I walked by a booth for Bodylastics.
I was wondering what it was so I took their challenge of trying to curl all four bands 30 times and not knowing how much weight it was. I got to 10 reps and that was it. I couldn't do any more.
After a few min. of talking to the representative I felt "the burn" in my arms from doing the curls. I was surprised, even when going to the gym and doing 10 reps I never felt that " burn" in my arms. so I had to get it. And to this day my wife and I both use the Bodylastics System everyday.
(Individual results may vary from those shown.)
I'm a 68 year old ex athlete who's stayed in shape all my life. I used to use free weights and then a few years ago was told by a doctor to use something else. I've been using the Total Gym for a couple years and have gotten an excellent workout. I was attracted to your product because I travel and you sure can't take the Total Gym along. I spoke with you on the phone initially and you said that I would be giving up Total Gym once working with Bodylastics. Boy were you right. I love the workout and the portability of the system. I've been using it daily now for about three weeks and have already just about given up my Total Gym workouts, even when not on the road. You've provided me with a great workout and one that goes with me wherever I go. The product is very well made and I'm sure will last a long time. The cost is so much less than what I spent on Total Gym and yet I get as good if not a better overall workout. Sorry for being long winded, but there's so much good to say I wanted you
to hear it all.
So far, I am liking the product very much. I tried some exercises and I really felt the burn (I thought I could use all 5 bands with the biceps curl and boy was I wrong?!!) I am a physical therapist and this is really a very effective and inexpensive product. I
would definitely recommend it to my friends and patients.
hello blake....I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee it...no bull its awesome...I get the best pump...I love train with them I am very inventive too.. I will pass it on to you at a later date...I gave the other set i purchased to a bodybuilder buddy of mine from nyc...he raves about it...beieve me if he likes it cause he is a fanatic about his body..5'8 200 .......thanks blake..Be so proud of your product...I hope you sell a million of them..
Ever since receiving my Bodylastics bands from my husband as a gift, I cannot train, literally, without them! I am a certified personal trainer and ALL of my clients LOVE them. It has been my ultimate indoor/outdoor gym training tool. Every time I use it, I always have someone interested in purchasing them because they really work! Thank you for having an extremely reliable training product!!!
Received your product yesterday. I did a little chest & tri workout this am. AWESOME!!! The push up is like a close grip bench. I'm a little more used to a wider grip but the chest flies work well for the outer pecs. I did the tricep exercise and let me tell you..I did push-downs. Normally you do these on a machine and the extension stops at your waist when the bar hits you...when I extended just the few inches past my waiste my triceps screeeeaaamedd !!! It was great..I'm gonna hit all the body parts with a split routine and then when I get over my soreness I will try some of the pre exhaust techniques that can be easily done.....great product.. I have found nothing wrong so far.
I think anyone who can really focus on feeling the muscle work(this took me a long time when I first used to just push/pull weight around)will get great results. I especially like the freedom, range of motion and the ability to really blow up the muscle group by focusing reps....talk to ya later..happy customer here!!
Thanks for your fast response and your excellent customer support. I am telling everybody about the Bodylastics system. It works because it is something that I am actually DOING. I think I am going to dismantle my huge Weider 4 station weight machine. I am getting a great total body workout with your product and can carry it around in my briefcase.
I recently attended the Arnold Fitness Classic in Columbus Ohio. I walked by a booth for Bodylastics. I was wondering what it was so I took their challenge of trying to curl all four bands 40 times and not knowing how much weight it was. I got to ten reps and that was it. Icouldn't do any more.

I will say that it's the best burn I've had with a home workout product. I would definitely recommend it to people who workout at home in addition to other fighters. It's the best value for the money. Bodylastics is compact, convenient and it works!"

I'm not one to talk on the testimonial line at QVC, but while I have your undivided attention, I'd like to tell you how much I enjoy the system and the workout. Exercise and I had been "on hiatus" for quite a while, and when I saw you and the system on QVC, it really piqued my interest. What I liked best was the convenience of being able to do the workout at home, whenever I want, the benefits of cardio and resistance training, and of course, the price! I had started to recondition myself aerobically by power walking. By the time my system arrived, I had several miles under my belt. I think that enabled me to complete three full circuits my very first time. I've been doing it 3x per week so far, and hope to continue that trend. So that's my story.
Thank you for your prompt service.
I extremely happy with my bodylastics home gym. For the first time I enjoy working out. I by no means have ever been consistent in exercising let alone bodybuilding. In all of my previous efforts, success was hard to measure and the focus seemed to be on work rather than results. Your system has changed that for me.
Thank you for a great product.....I recently ordered two home gyms from you and all I can say is wow!!!!!! My girlfriend is going to love it as well. I have worked out with your circuit video twice and I am already seeing a great pump and and alot of extra blood flow to the muscle tissue.....My veins are showing better and I have harder muscles throughout the day. I believe the consistent tension on the muscle from the bands makes a world of difference....... Keep up the good work......P.S. Will you have other videos in the future to workout along to......A happy customer.....
I'm 47 and have been working out for about 10 years. I was burned out on the machines and wanted something portable that I could do on my own schedule. I was surfing the web for excercise alternatives and found yours!!! I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed your product!!! I had some troubles with my back in the past but have found that using elastics has eased that problem. In fact my back Dr. advised (he also works out) that Iswitch to elastics. That was two years ago and I have gotten better results from the elastics then I ever did from weights.
I did my shoulders and tris tonight. I sat down on the edge of a bed with the bands underneath me to do military press. Man they worked great. Then I did triceps extensions like you show in the manual. Once again, I was very impressed. So, now that I am 2 workouts in, I can very happily say that I love these things. They are easy to use and eliminate all of my excuses. So I am well on my way to getting back into the shape I used to be in. Thanks a lot man.
I had a very stressful year at work last year. As a result, I wasn't getting any exercise, my weight bloate from 126 to 152 (I'm 5'6") and my blood pressure got as high as 160 over 102. My doctor was insisting I go on bp meds, but I was reluctant, as I knew it was all stress-related and was convinced that if I could just find something to fit into my gruelling schedule, I could get back to where I was a year earlier, in terms of my health and fitness level.
My next door neighbor was going through physical tx after knee surgery and she recommended I buy myself some bands. So, I went on line, found your website from a google search for therapy bands, and bought a set.
Well, here I am, 4 months later: I've left that g-d-awful stressful job, returned to eating like a normal person and have a regular rotating routine of using the bodylastics, combined with running and yoga. I'm down to 128 lbs adn my bp is down to 130 over 84. Not bad!
I love the circuit video and I find the bands really easy on the joints and they allow me to very specifically isolate particulr muscles.
I'm thrilled that I bought them and thrilled with their ease of use and their results.
Thanks so much,
Just wanted to write to say how satisfied I am with the Bodylastics set I purchased. The basic tension set really does include everything you need to get started and is holding up well against wear and tear. I love the fact that you can increase resistance by adding more than one band to the anchors: that's flexibility. It truly is a set that will grow with me! I'm also finding it's a perfect complement to the Body For Life program, which incorporates intense upper- and lower-body weight training with increasing resistance in their regimen. Thanks so much for a great product!
I am 61 and was in good aerobic condition from jogging every week, but not muscular condition before ordering and using your product. Six weeks later the muscles I remember I had in my twenties and thirties have reemerged! I am a weekend golfer and my drives are now 20 yards longer than they were before I started Bodylastics! Your product is wonderful: easy to use at home, easy to pack in a suitcase and use on the road, and easy to sell to other friends and associates. Thanks for returning this pretty good body to a really good body in just 6 weeks!
I don't even remember how I first discovered your website, but I am glad I did! I just completed my workout and am amazed that I get the same burn with Bodylastics as I do with my numerous and bulky dumbbells. The change over in resistance is easy and quick and the handles are very comfortable. I bought the set initially in order to keep up with my workouts on my month-long vacation, but I think I just found the perfect replacement to my space-consuming weight set! Thanks again, and good luck with business... I am sure you'll go far with this!
Blake your bands are awesome.....I have been using my set about 2 months now and its awesome!!!!!!!....After buying all those sets I finally kept this one instead of being talked into giving it up to a friend or family member...Everyone I show it to loves it....I had the worst luck trying to get into the gym after work...This is better any day of the week....I can do it in the privacy of my own home and usually my workouts are only about 15 to 20 minutes long and I get a much better pump than in a gym working out for an hour or more....Plus you don't get the attitudes at home like in the gym....which allows me to concentrate soooo much better on my workout.....I hope you stay around for manymany years...dont know what I'd do with out them.....
I received the bodylastics and DVD. My wife immediately took it over. She goes to curves regularly with her friends, but there are times she does not go and wishes she could work out at home. She does not like my Soloflex. She gave your DVD circuit training a try and called me from work today expressing how sore her muscles were. Now this is a woman in great shape. Obviously it hit her muscles differently and she liked it. She said she will use it when I am home. When she was done, I got to spend some time with it today and researched many additional exercises that it does very well.
I concentrated on my legs tonight and felt it. The bands are very smooth. It takes some time to get used to setting up the bands properly, but I believe your product competes with the bow flex very well. It takes some time to set up the bow flex and soloflex as well. True for most equipment. I believe some exercises are done better with bands than machines or even free weights. I have used a Soloflex at home since 1991 and I really like it's flexibility. I complement it with dumb bell exercises, ab machine and an orbital trainer. I also have 20 years in the martial arts. They have helped to keep me in shape and for a 50 year old guy, due to regular training I can keep up with the 20 yr old guys. Your product will add to my exercise flexibility and be a life saver when I am away in the hotel. Hotel exercise equipment is limited and I can maintain a routine with your equipment even when I'm away. Your product will go with me on my travels. It's only day one, but so far, I'm impressed. I am more convinced that you could market more exercises, but that's obviously your call. I'll see how it holds up to use and time. Thanks.
For this 60+ aged man: THIS IS MY FIRST LETTER IN PRAISE OF A PRODUCT !!
I first came across resistance tubing about 6 years ago when I was being treated for a condition known as shoulder impingement syndrome. I was physically active and apparently the range of motion of my activities was developing certain shoulder muscles without the opposing muscles also developing--causing a muscle imbalance--resulting in a lot of pain in both shoulders. The Doctor did certain tests and referred me to a physical therapist. Prescribed exercises used resistance tubing and light dumbbells. At the end of treatment I prevailed upon the therapist to give me a couple
pieces of tubing-- I wanted to continue the exercises ,which I continued to do, and "knock on wood"-- successfully-- in that the condition has not returned.
It occurred to me later on that in the absense of the dumbbells that I could use the tubing to also do the "dumbbell exercises". Only recently did it come to mind that with the right tubing I could do , in the absense of a lot of equipment, some very effective real strength training. But I had no handles on the tubing nor a good way to vary the resistance. UNTIL NOW. I did some research and web-searching and figuratively stumbled across your product. I must say your clip system is simple, yet ingenious. It's like the idea of putting an eraser on a pencil. It is an understatement to say I am pleased by your tubing setup!! I am also pleased by its quality,by your website,your instruction manual and your video. I wish you much success.
I gave your bodylastics a try when I had to travel to Indonesia and couldn't take my Bowflex along. I was amazed at how much harder (sore muscles to prove it) I worked with them than with the Bowflex. I love them and haven't used my Bowflex since I returned, but have continued to use the Bodylastics!
Blake, you are right. I love the product. Right now I can do a complete upper body workout, chest, shoulders, arms and back using only the blue band, a little trial and error and experimentation on my own in less than 10 minutes!
I particularly like that the resistance is smooth and you get good resistance coming up and going down in a movement. I think it would be almost impossible for somebody to injure themselves with this equipment Thanks again -- I was really looking forward to the equipment and it did not disappoint.
Just wanted you to know what I thought about the Bodylastics after just one month of use... FANTASTIC!! They are so versatile..Example, I use the cords attached to my belt and hook them under the Dip station and not only for dips, but pullups and chins also...sure works better than using the free weights strapped to the belt and is much safer...
I love my Bodylastics. I was concerned lately that I have been missing a few workouts - I never miss a day. I decided to take one of my bodylastics, the green one,to work with me. I sit in a cubicle and do 8 hours of data entry. Now I can take a break from my work. I'll do a set or two of an exercise and return to my work refreshed. I have invented some new exercises that I can do in my chair. I also have some that I do while standing. Bodylastics is a great system. The office manager here was impressed with my upper body strength when she how effortless it was for me to pick up a five gallon container of water an place it on our water dispenser.
I have been a devoted Bowflex user for two years and recently looked into purchasing a Lat attachment and stronger rods (I'm 115 lbs and have maxed out the weight for leg exercises). Pricey! I received your bands as suggested by Don Lemmon. I wish I had known about these long before I bought my Bowflex. I love the range of motion and can use them while traveling. What a fabulous workout - these are top QUALITY bands!
I've been waiting 30 years for this product! I can work out at home in front of the tube. It is quiet, easily adjustable, and so little money. I've been using mine for 8 months and my wife loves the results. I started off doing the resistance exercises with only the red tube and have worked up to blue, red, and yellow, or 2 steps away from all 4 bands. Thanks for a great product.

After looking at some less expensive but shoddy discount store elastic exercisers, I bought a unit from you. Delivery was prompt, and the quality of the product was excellent. This thing is built to last. Further and there is plenty of adjustable tension for a 6 foot 180 pound man, a carry bag and a good instruction book. I intend to use it a lot at home and especially when I travel.
Thanks and good health,
Dear people, I must first tell you that my wife and I own 3 bags of bodylastics. Needless to say we love your product. I am well and feel fit because of your wonderful product.
I recently purchased bodylastics through QVC (qvc.com) and it was delivered on February 4, 2002. I immediately started to follow the circuit training video and actually like to do the workout. I am not one that enjoys to exercise, but I have spent hundreds of dollars on other products that didn't work. This is actually fun, and I have started to see some results.
I am Director of the Spasmodic Torticollis Recovery Clinic, Inc. in Santa Fe, NM and have found your product to be nothing short of a miracle for my clients who cannot either get to a gym or purchase a home gym."

To whom it may concern,
I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how pleased I am with your product. At one time I was a powerlifter,but after several injuries to my shoulders,I thought my resistance training days were over.
One day I came across your website,and after reading about the Bodylastics equiptment,I thought "hey here's a way could start training again".Now I have to admit I was a little skeptical about using elastic bands for strength training,after all the years of powerlifting I didnt think oversized rubber bands would offer the resistance I needed to get a good workout.Man was I surprised.
After using your equiptment in a traditional strength training routine,I have already added 1/4 inch around my arms,and 1" around my chest.Thank you for an outstanding product that has brought this broken down powerlifter back into training.
To whom it may concern,
My name is Betsy and I am an Exercise Physiologist with the WISH Center, a surgical obesity clinic in Illinois. I am writing in regards to your Bodylastics home/travel gym super system. I have researched a lot of home exercise equipment that would be appropriate for our special population and I have found your complete package to be the very best at home option to recommend. I love it because it is simple, quick, and comes with lots of instructional methods, which are very important for a population that has little experience with exercise.
I hope we can work together in the future to help others reach their health and fitness goals.
Thank you in advance,
I've been doing the video workout only for about a week now, but I swear I think it's making a difference already. So, to say the least, I absolutely love it. The worst thing about some programs is that you do the same exercise or type of exercise for so long that it becomes boring (and that's much worse than it being too difficult physically). This keeps me interested!
I've been telling all my friends about them, too...
I just got the bodylastics system, and am very happy with it! You have a great product, far superior to what else is out there on the market. The ability to add different bands to the handles makes your product especially versatile.
Thanks very much,
