What is the most common excuse personal trainers hear from people trying to lose weight? No, it’s not how hard dieting is. It’s getting to the gym. Every personal trainer I know says their client’s biggest issue is that they don’t have time to go the gym. I am definitely one of those people. Luckily, the URBNFit Resistance Bands are a simple and effective fix to that issue.
I like exercising, but after working all day, taking care of my kids and dealing with whatever life feels like throwing at me, I don’t always want to go and drive to the gym. Call me lazy, my wife would agree with you. My time is precious, but so is my health. As I started losing muscle mass and the pounds found their way back onto my waistline, I knew I had to figure something out. I began using Resistance Bands and knew instantly I'd found something very special.
Resistance bands allow me to get a great full body workout anywhere. Compact and lightweight, the bands are easily stored away, or packed into my suitcase when I Travel. Whether working out at home, in a hotel room or even in my office, I can always get a good workout in without making excuses.
Adding resistance bands to my routine has made my workouts more fun, efficient and most importantly more convenient.
With URBNFit we created the ULTIMATE RESISTANCE BAND WORKOUT GUIDE to help guide you through the variety of movements you can do in your strength training routine with resistance bands.
Our goal is to have people working out, getting healthy and feeling good, so feel free to pin the guide and share it with anyone!
Whether you are a beginner or professional body builder, resistance bands come in a variety of resistances to add to or lessen the intensity of any workout. The advantage resistance bands have over free-weights is that both the concentric and eccentric part of the exercise has resistance, so get constant muscle stimulation, and better range of motion with every rep. All these attributes of resistance bands are great for people going through physical therapy or recovering from an injury.
Resistance bands are also an incredibly cost-efficient way of getting in shape at home. When thinking of a home workout, the first thing we think of is one of those expensive all-in-one workout machines that ends up looking like the wrong end of a Transformer moved into your living room. Resistance bands make more sense. Save space and save money, you can get the same results, but you can’t put one of those machines in the drawer after your workout.
You’ll be surprised how effective of a workout you can get from something so simple. And as the same personal trainer I was trying to avoid says, “When it comes to fitness and health, simpler is always better.” When It comes to Resistance Bands, I have to agree.
So, why not add something new to your workout? If you're interested in getting a set of URBNFit's Resistance Bands
