Most of you know, that I have started dieting and exercising since having a back problem and being diagnosed with Diabetes. So far I have lost 40 lbs. and of course am off my medications. I started out on a treadmill and have slowly increased my workouts. Well, I believe it has been an encouragement to my family. So now I have a super great gift idea for the men! It is called Bodylastics! And seriously women use it too, I just thought that this is one of the products that will fit our male gifts.
Anyway, Bodylastics is an entire portable workout system. My husband likes it alot because you can easily add or remove tension, and thus the weight you are working with. It has both arm, leg, back, chest, shoulders and abs. There is a section for exercises for men and for women. And the very best part is that it all fits into a carry bag that you can take with you on trips, etc.

Bodylastics is a resistance bands based workout. It comes with, (at least the set I received):
2 clip handles
2 ankle straps
2 door anchors
1 black elastic 23 lbs.
1 blue elastic 19 lbs.
1 red elastic 13 lbs.
1 green elastic 7 lbs.
1 yellow elastic 3 lbs.
1 instructional DVD
1 User Manual
1 travel bag
|Clipped together. Easy to clip or unclip.|
|Door anchor piece.|
First off they suggest you familiarize yourself with the Bodylastics. Learn how to properly attach and use all the pieces. Learn the different terms that will be used in the manual and on the DVD. There are basically 3 programs; Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. The manual is then broken down into Body Toning, Muscle Building, Specific Muscle Groups, Sports, and Exercises.
